Traditional Spanish Tapas

Such a huge and wide choice of tapas and very reasonable priced. Lovely food, great service. Small but can also sit at the bar. Made welcome and not made to rush. Booking is 100% recommended as we had got the booking at 8.45 on a Saturday.

We stopped off in Broadstairs, on a wet and windy Saturday lunch time looking for somewhere to grab a bite before shopping in the town. Albarino's is located amongst other eateries in Albion Street and I don't think we could have chosen much better. This small restaurant is clean, tastefully decorated. You can eat at a table or sample the... More

My first time here and went with a group of 6. We had the sharing menu and the food was plentiful and yummy. Food was served at juts the right pace - no lengthy waits and not too short an interval. Everyone in our group enjoyed the food, drink service and surroundings. A great experience, thank you. And what was... More

You can understand why this place comes out as No 1. Service from staff friendly, helpful and efficient. Food was just great. Well cooked and very tasty and even though restaurant was full we didn't have to wait. We loved the pork, ox cheeks, octopus and especially the chickpea and fennel chips. Never been here before, but when we start... More

Have visited on numerous occasions. The most recent being a couple of weeks ago. As always we had the chefs platter and the Reveleste wine (an absolute must if you enjoy white wine.) The food is exquisite and the staff are friendly and attentive. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Make sure you book as they have limited space... More

Came here a few months ago and had the chefs board, which is basically 7 set dishes for a certain price, think it may of been 25 pounds but not sure. Staff were very talkative and bubbly. The place is small and very intimate and we were lucky to get a table. I don't even like olives but I fell... More

Having just been back from Spain to find a Tapas bar in Broadstairs was a great find Freshly served reasonably priced and like all good Tapas bars you can eat at the counter I understand the owner is the chef who taught himself to cook the cuisine and what a great job he has done. Seemed a shy man who... More

We visited here on the basis of some very good reviews - and rightly so. Excellent tapas. Fresh, tasty ingredients all prepared in an assortment of dishes. The cured meat and cheese board was outstanding. The restaurant itself is cosy but comfortable. Friendly and attentive staff. It's worth visiting Broadstairs just for this restaurant!
