An authentic taste of Spain

We've had tapas in dozens of bars in Spain, and and although those in this restaurant are much more expensive than in Spain it's because they are bigger so that you don't need as many. One or two of them were really new to us as well. Nice wine list too.

I have to say I was somewhat anxious after calling Albarino well ahead to book a table for our very special evening, as my attempts to agree an available time were met by a polite but frosty reception from “I’m the owner”, who made me feel that this Michelin rated chef and proprietor wasn’t really bothered whether we booked or...

I've been at Albariño restaurant with my wife. The staff is very kind, they welcomed us and explained the menu. We had 5 tapas and some lomo iberico. Among the tapas we loved the octopus and the stuffed calamari. Also the pork belly with gambas was very tasty. Each plate was carefully prepared and well served, everything very tasty.

The food here was just wonderful. I recommend strongly to anyone who cares about food. The meat was soft and succulent the taste of each dish individual and exciting. A perfect tapas eatery in a sea of bad restaurants

I've been to Albarinos on a few occasions. Food and service is always top quality. Every dish is seasoned well and the tapas dishes are perfectly sized. A great menu to choose from, alongside the chefs selection which is always the 'go to' for me. The wine and sherry list is fantastic and offer compliments to the dishes served. There... More

I absolutely love this place, it is my favourite restuarant in Broadstairs. My husband and I often go for late tapas, the menu is always excellent and staff really friendly. We tend to start with mixed cheese and meat board starter with a couple of different sherries, then a bit of tapas and wine which always includes my own portion... More

I was here with my fiance for dinner and we were very impressed with this restaurant. It is a Spanish Tapas restaurant, very small and intimate. I loved the atmosphere, the food and the drinks. We have a variety of tapas and they were all delicious. I have lived in Spain and I honestly think the food here is delicious.... More
