Very friendly and Authentic Spanish restaurant in central London; Restaurant staff was very warm, welcoming, attentive and provided first class service. The food was delicious with selections of seafood, meat and tapas to choose from the menu. Be careful with the Calamari and squid ink sandwich starter as it’s quite messy to eat but worth it if you don’t mind... More

We was in this nice place because of an interesting groupon voucher. Angel, the fnb manager, was amazing from the beginning till the end. A great professional service like in Michelin starred restaurant. Food was simple, extremely tasty. Good point with the ceviche and pressed lamb. Thank you and congrats for all the team. Definitely recommended.

Fresh bread was made for my son due... More

We went with a Groupon and enjoyed great food there. The portion sizes were great. My partner even commented on a starter being the size of a main. Service was nice and attentive. Loved the whole experience and will definitely return!

I have been a frequent visitor to The Melia White House Hotel for many years and seen quite a few changes in the restaurant. This latest iteration is one of those times they have got it right. Fantastic quality of food, first class service and reasonable pricing for the offering. I will be returning.

I have regular meetings at the hotel and used the restaurant for the first time in March. It wasn't very busy as it was mid-week and fairly late in the evening, but this meant the service was perfect...Loved the traditional Spanish fare and Tapas and the wine was excellent! Also despite a really good meal it was fairly inexpensive for... More

We visited the refurbished Albufera after recommendation from friends and were impressed by the quality of food and the outstanding service. The location is the perfect refuge from the hustle and bustle of central London, it's tranquil and quiet but not snobby. While waiting for the rest of our party we sat at the bar across from the restaurant -... More
