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

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

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...

Reasonably priced selection of Spanish dishes usually attracts the customers of this long-standing restaurant. When craving for some paella, cochinillo, lengua, tapas and canonigo, this place is always a consideration!

I last ate in this restaurant 8 years ago and I had a very wonderful time. I am happy to note that the food is just as delicious as it was back then. I loved the paella,Callos, Cochinillo, and other Spanish dishes.

For the 800++ per person they charge at the buffet it wasn't worth it. Few dishes only and the food was cold.
