About L’albufera

L’Albufera is one of two respected restaurants at the 582-room four star deluxe Melia White House on a corner of Regent's Park. Taking pride in its role as the flagship dining room of the Spanish-owned hotel, the formal setting features large, well-spaced tables and generously-proportioned armchairs creating a very comfortable environment. A distinctively Spanish menu is evenly split into tempting sections of tapas - such as cabrales cheese with apple and herb toast - salads, fish and seafood, meat and rice dishes. Pick of the bunch is the paellas - said to be amongst the best in London. Choose from house paella with lobster and squid, vegetarian (cooked with organic rice), Spanish creamy rice, and even noodle paellas.
