We were walking through town early afternoon and fancied a beer. Came across the square with the church aside, spied some tables under the trees, ordered a beer and a couple of panachess and did the Spanish thing of just relaxing and chatting. Perfect! Staff were friendly and spoke a little English which helped when running through their beer menu!... More

Wanted a snack lunch after wandering round the town and found one of Alba's tables set up in the square opposite the restaurant not far from the harbour. I get the impression that a number of local restaurants put tables in the pedestrian area so it was purely by chance that we were served by staff from Alba. Pleasant staff... More

Sorry to say but this restaurant was really terrible! We "ate" there one evening, well actually I didnt eat, my liver and onions arrived looking most unappetising and it was trully awful, thin dry and hard, in fact I couldnt even cut it. When the waitress took my plate away, hardly touched she remarked that it did indeed look awful... More

Every year we visit Alba 3 or 4 times throughout the holiday, it is stunning. Never been disappointed with food or the staff. Lovely atmosphere watching the world go by while you eat. 5*

Exquisite Onion soup. Better than those I eat in Paris lately. Really happy to find this plate "à la carte" in a catalan restaurant, unfortunately that's not usual. I only miss some light main plate. You can choose the squid, but all the other options are too heavy, specially if you want to give yourself the opportunity to enjoy some... More

A group of us went to Alba for our farewell dinner before heading back to Canada, and it was lovely! The food was fantastic, and the atmosphere superb. What a great way to end our stay there in Spain!

Good menu ranging from cheap and cheerful to a good a la carte menu. Food is always good and well presented and staff are very friendly. It has a lovely atmosphere sitting under the trees in the church square.
