This is the second time I have eaten here and once again the food was exceptional, in fact it was nicer than the first time and we didn't think this was possible. Had the chefs selection and everything was well time and done to perfection. Cannot fault this little gem of a place, the only negative is the more people... More

I have been here twice recently and we will sure be returning again soon! A great selection of tapas, really well executed with lots of great combinations. My favourites include the Crab, apple and pancetta, the octopus and truffled goats cheese with honey. Great drinks selection and good service! One of the best places to eat in Broadstairs by far....

Recently went to Albarino on a Saturday night and again was not disappointed with the quality of the meal or the wonderful relaxed atmosphere at the Tapas Bar. Can highly recommend the pork belly, meatballs and smoked haddock croquets - food and service is always excellent and never disappoints. Looking forward to our next visit.

All was great from the food, wine, service, value. A real nice place be it a casual meal or an occasion. All dishes were nice, but the haddock and goats cheese really stood out and would win awards in there own right. Both the ladies behind the bar were both very obliging, and it was very comfortable sitting at the... More

We were staying at the Botany Bay hotel in Broadstairs and this restaurant was a short taxi ride away (taxi £4.80 each way). The restaurant is small and cozy with an open view into the kitchen. The waitresses were very helpful with their explainations of the different dishes. The food was delicious the ambience was delightful. Well done to the... More

Can't say I'd originally planned to eat tapas in Broadstairs but my friend who knows the place booked this and it was a revelation! We had the taster menu, £20 for 6 courses which was brilliant value and just inventive enough. Also had the scrumptious deep fried custard for pudding. Service was lovely as well. Just remember to book as... More

I love tapas food, but sadly my experience at albarinos was very different to all the amazing reviews. After asking to have sangria without the fruit we got into a debate as to why I couldn't have it. I said I understand measures etc So to bump it up with ice but was still refused until after a 15 minute... More

We had seen a review of this restaurant last year but as they do not open weekday lunchtime we had to wait for a suitable evening, that was Saturday. Well worth the wait. We chose the chef's platter, six courses of amazing tastes. It was hard to decide which was our favourite, the goat cheese and Serrano ham topped with... More
