This is a quite small family run restaurant that is famous in Santander for its Paella. Given that I have never really had a special Paella I had to try it and I was not disappointed. It was very welcoming , the son of the owner speaks a little English and we had the Paella for 2 amongst three of us. It was ample.
For any foodie this is a must try in Santander .

Let's get things easy - I am Spain addictive man. I ha e eaten maybe 20 different paella in Spain. This one was the best. Old men invite you to hmble looking restaurant but they are able to make you happy. Their paella is simple great. Please, try. I wonder if you will be disappointed.

We came here with long-time resident friends who know their restaurants. Had a great seafood paella served in a real local ambience with calemari, shrimp, mini-lobster, clams, beans and most of all great rice - a real find both for the food quality and for the ambience. Lunch for 4, including a good bottle of wine, deserts and coffees came to euro96.

We needed to warm up one cold and wet January Sunday lunch time, so stopped here having seen various reviews. The owner will probably try to get you to order more than you want! We were not hugely hungry so didn’t want the paella (which most other diners were enjoying and it looked fabulous) and ordered the shellfish soup. We were then persuaded to order the speciality local fish stew. Both were excellent. The fish soup was a huge bowl and stuffed with squid, clams and prawns. The fish stew contained hake, monkfish and various shellfish along with boiled eggs and a pimenton sauce. The owner was attentive and keen to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. Make sure you are hungry when you go!

My husband and I were looking for an early dinner (around 8pm) and came across Casa Albo. We were invited in by a waiter (Jose or Juan, can't remember his name) and he told us that he just got some fresh seafood in and could make us a great paella. We took a chance and went in. We were not disappointed!! The paella was delicious and the waiter was very attentive to our needs, without being pushy. We loved this place so much that we went again a couple of nights later to try something different....meat! Again, we were not disappointed and left the restaurant very satisfied, full, and happy. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!! Has a local feel and great food and wine!
