This restaurant is a tradition in Marbella, offering good quality cuisine and professional service. Reasonable prices. Full all year round with locals, the decor is classic Spanish and if you are interested in good Spanish food, this is the place to go.

We dined here on Saturday evening. The half portions of tapas/starters were enormous and thankfully we managed to cancel some when we realised we’d over ordered. The highlight for me was the salty aubergine with honey. Shame I didn’t have more room to finish it...More

We had chistorras and amazing recently cut jamon (5 jotas) with great wine. Fresh and very tasty food. We also made friends with Ivonne, the bartender. Excellent attention and even live music. If you are looking for a local tapas restaurant this is definitely one.

This is a regular spot for me and it is always excellent.I was there last week with my wife and two friends. The food was fabulous and the staff are great fun. Tapas, salads, sea bass, paella or meat dishes - they are all good.

"The Venencia" is a restaurant rooted in the purest style of the old Jerez wineries, located in lovely and beautiful enclave of the most prestigious city in the Costa del Sol, Marbella. A place to enjoy the most special climate in Europe and the most funny and friendly people. The initiation of this business began in 1985 in a small winery in San Pedro de Alcantara. It was a small winery style of Jerez, where many wines, good ham and all kinds of Iberian products were being sold. Throughout the years, the owners opened more premises in Marbella, being this one, the best located in the center of our beautiful coastal city. "The Venencia" is not just a place to have tapas with the best market products and take the best wine or fresh beer, but we are also specialists in meat, fish and homemade desserts. All this with a genuine Mediterranean cuisine ... We are frying, BBQ, cooker, and of course, an Spanish & Andalusian restaurant. Come and enjoy the best seafood, grilled fish or fried fish freshly brought from the market, with the best atmosphere and companionship of Marbella's people.
