Reviews

"Among the many Spanish restaurants in Manila, probably no other can lay claim to having the longest staying power than ALBA. The man behind it is Anastacio de Alba, a native of Avila in Spain, who first set foot on this shore on February 7, 1952. For an individual like him, who has been cooking for a period of almost 40 years, one can easily assume that the man has a love of his craft."
