Alba is a unique place. It’s cozy and comfortable. We were there to have dinner. They have good options for entré. The main dishes are incredible. I got the pork belly, the meat was so soft and delicious. My friends got the chicken and rice,they...really loved. Alba offer good food and drinks for a good price. I should back there.More

I'm a foodie and the food blew me away. A small and humble restaurant that explodes with flavours and creativity in presentation!

The place is cozy and relaxing. The food is delicious with a unique touch. The Shrimp risotto was perfect and the “Tomatios criollos” was tasty. For a better experience I recommend sharing ;)

Wonderful restaurant! Everything we ate here was just so well made. We went back again after being there on a tour. Could not have enjoyed it any more. Nice craft beer selection. We will come back once we return to Mexico City

Really pleased we visited, by far the best meal we had in CDM. Everything was fresh and tasty, and we were so full after our 5 sharing dishes that we had no room for dessert. Everything for the equivalent of £40, including two lovely gin...cocktails. If I ever return to this city, it’s the first place I would go.More

We had one of our best meals in Mexico City here- and that is saying something. Everything was fresh, well prepared, and delicious. Very creative menu. Best part is the warm, welcoming atmosphere. The chef visited our table and spoke about the origin of the...recipes (grandma's secret salsa!).More

Excellent breakfast place in Col. Juarez. They serve traditional Mexican food but prepared and presented in a modern way. They interior is airy and comfy, with tables spread over 2 floors. I went for brunch and highly recommend the Huevos Divorciados. Service is friendly and...professional.More

Alba is quite the hidden gem! If you’re looking for fresh cuisine in CDMX, this is the perfect spot! The atmosphere is lovely and the entire restaurant is decorated so well. There’s also an option to just grab a drink at their bar. Overall an...amazing experience, highly recommendMore

After dining at Alba Cocina Local I was astounded on every level. The food was fresh, well prepared and presented, and innovative. The service was thoughtful and pleasant. We followed our waiter's suggestions from our cactus salad, the entrees of octopus and game hen with...purple yam pureee, through the dessert that tantalized us...I forgot the name of the dessert, but it was a burnt cream with fruit. The restaurant is small, and the evening we dined there it was not crowded which was astounding considering the quality of our experience... I have owned restaurants. The value was excellent, and I might add that the costs listed in Trip Advisor far exceeded what we spent on an appetizer, two entrees and a dessert.More

This cute and unassuming restaurant is a hidden gem! The food was impeccable presented and the flavours blew our minds. Came here with a large group and they did an excellent job accommodating. The service was super friendly and they had plenty of recommendations to...give. Definitely worth a visit!More
