We dropped into this lovely little restaurant on a walk back from the beach Great food, lots of options - very reasonably priced and full of flavour. Loved, loved the polenta chips - and the chicken was also full of flavour and very delicious.

The food is fresh and delicious. Lovely to have something different. I did feel it was over priced a little though. £60 for two for a selection of small plates and a drink each. Not sure I'd pay that again.

Ideal for a very different gastronomic experience. Small and unassuming restaurant but the staff are wonderful and the food perfect. Good authentic Spanish ingredients and the menu changes regularly. Just keep ordering tapas until you have had enough (but save room for the rice pudding!. It gets very full so it's best to book.

We met with another family (both 2 x adults + 1 x child) for an evening meal. We booked the table about 2 weeks ahead. A courtesy call a few days ahead and in the afternoon of the booking to check - very nice touch. Friendly service, spacious table and the food was brought out as and when it was... More

Absolutely first class, as every time we've dined here. We have spent a lot of time in various regions of Spain,visiting many good traditional restaurants. Albariño is way up there with the best of them. Superb wide choices of beautifully prepared fresh dishes and wines, great ambiance, and at reasonable price. Saludos a el Jefè!

Visited Broadstairs by train from Herne Bay, £5.60 return. Walked down to the seafront and had booked for lunch at Albarino's tapas restaurant. What a great place, table one and two have a view to the sea, menu very good anything gluten free has two stars next to it. Very good choice for gluten free, vegetarian, fish eaters or meat... More

After being advised we had no chance by friends we chanced a call and were delighted to get a table for four on the Saturday of Easter weekend at nine pm, whoever cancelled missed out immensely. What an unpretentious friendly atmosphere as a tapas should be,excellent food and wine with great service. Terrific value at £115 for four including sherry

We were very disappointed with our recent visit to this restaurant. I've eaten in some of the best tapas restaurants in Spain and London and this place simply does not come close. The food was tired, poorly presented and pretty tasteless on the whole. We did not think the produce being used was fresh! Big improvement is needed!

Having arrived 15-20 minutes after our booked time, our table has been given away. Sadly they had tried to ring us, but there is absolutely no mobile reception in Broadstairs, so we didn't get the call. Its a busy place, so we conceded they had done what they could in the circumstances. All was not lost; we were offered comfy... More
