We knew this restaurant because the owner used to run a nearby restaurant that we were not very pleased with, but we decided to give El de Alberto a chance and we were pleasantly surprised. The service is very good, they provide explanations and suggestions all the time without being intrusive. Fantastic croquettes and puff pastry with veg, prawn and foie for starters. Everybody liked their meat and fish mains, I also liked the wild sea bass myself, though the lemon cream was too lemony, and the dish lacked some counterpoint, such as greens or potato or some side for the fish. The special of the day was a yummy lentil soup with prawns and more foie. I didn't have dessert but the berries in white chocolate soup looked pretty. Will probably return.

If you are looking for five star service, best food for your money look no more El de Alberto is all you need. The cuisine itself incorporates all local ingredients and traditional dishes with a new cuisine vibe. The perfect balance of quality, quantity and modern cuisine, all dishes are well prepared and elegant without trying to be pretentious or "french".
El de Alberto best assest is Alberto itself which has impecable public relations skills and makes you feel right.

From the minute I walked in the restaurant, I felt like royalty. Fantastic service, detailed explanations (in English) of the menu, and the food was excellent. I don't think I've ever had a fresher scallop.

We visited this because of the Tripadvisor reviews and were very pleased that we did. We arrived at about 8.30 (very very early by A Coruna standards) and were told that is was fully booked, however if we agreed to be out by 10.30 they could fit us in. We were offered a menu in English and the patron (who was very friendly without being unctuous) told us about the day's specials. When we ordered he did something very unusual - he told us we had ordered too much and advised us what to drop! The food was good without being too fancy and the service was attentive without being intrusive. The bill was less than 60 Euros, which included a very nice bottle of wine, so excellent value. As it is on a side street, well away from the tourist beat, we would not have visited it without these reviews, so thanks to Tripadvisor!
