For the best typical Spanish food you must visit La Venencia. Great staff also. From tapas to whole fish baked in salt, you'll find it all here with plenty of outside space.

"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.
