Limited buffet selection, but every dish was very good. The diner must definitely try every dish. Cozy ambiance, good service.

What's hot: a. Cozy dining area. The place is small and very good for intimate dinner or lunch with family and friends. b. They have a very good selection of wine. c. Food in the buffet selection is delightful: paella, salad, desserts (2 types), lechon, callos, pasta (Can't remember what type) d. Be entertained by talented, funny and friendly trio... More

My first time to visit Alba at Thomas Morato QC for dinner to celebrate my friend's 60th birthday. We decided to order from their ala carte menu instead of their buffet, since we do not want to stuff ourselves. We ordered their popular Paella Valenciana (580php) which is a seafood paella, Cochinillo Asado (750php) which is the Spanish version of... More

We went here on a sunday afternoon and we were not dissapointed with the food. It was busy as there was a bday celebration going on. The buffet selections was good and the price reasonable for the quality. It was a nice cozy place and even a bit crowded getting to the buffet table and back. But good service all... More

Once again a night of Spanish tapas, comidas, and postres! First time to dine here at night, ambiance was good, live musicians, the food of course was great, and excellent service. Choco flan was so good. A note for improvement though was that their roast beef was not that tender for me. Even if the place was a bit small,... More

This is my go to place for great Spanish food in Manila. Old man Alba passed away recently, but his spirit lives on in the excellent service and food at his restaurant. The lachon is excellent, but having it off the buffet, I ask the waiter to get me a fresh plate from the kitchen, it's freasher and they "crisp"... More

Top of mind for authentic Spanish cuisine can only mean one name - Alba. Yes, this resto obviously needs a little upgrading in terms of interior design, plus the parking at the frontage could use a more inviting look, it's the taste of the food and the authenticity that you should really appreciate :) It's historical significance is also something...
