This has to be the worst restaurant I have visited in Estepona, Lousy food, terrible and rude waitress and a table service so bad - that I would have sacked her o the spot. Pork tough, vegetables cold. Had to ask 4 times for cutlery, had to ask 4 times for wine, served deserts with no plates no cutlery. awful experience I would never go back. I speak Spanish and was amazed at how confrontational the waitress was. GIVE THE RESTAURANT A WIDE BERTH.

Having read the reviews we made a point of visiting this restaurant for breakfast around 10.30 to 11 am one Saturday morning n September. We chose to sit outside but undercover as it was already hot in th sun. Our first impression was that it needed a good clean the tables were dusty there were lots of cobwebs and the waiter took ages to bring a menu even though he only had four tables occupied including us, he was grumpy the coffee was awful and food disappointing. We wondered around the garden centre after which is massively expensive definitely won't be back.

We stumbled upon this restaurant which is situated between Marbella and Estepona. It is located in the Agrogardin garden centre just off the main coastal highway. The menu was international consisting of white and red meat and fish with a variety of salads. The decoration was tasteful and chic and the food very tasty. Adjoining the restaurant was a coffee bar which served us excellent Cortado (Macchiato).

The only slight problem is that the restaurant closes at 9pm.

I think that you may feel more connected with nature in this place, the plants, flowers and trees do their job, it's so romantic and beautiful that I was impressed when I walked in. It's simply magical and gorgeus, the different kind of lights finely distributed, the sound of the water falling from fountains, the birds singing... It's a lovely surprise. The service is correct, we were welcomed and treated well. The food matches the location, all that you see, the different decoration styles perfectly combined mingling with the green leaves are an analogy of their dishes. Anything you try will be right in cooking terms and round in flavors which have nothing to do with what you normally find in a regular restaurant. Lime notes, pansies, fresh ingredients and carnival colors make eating here a spring festival for your mouth. The only thing I disliked was that we were charged too much for half a small sea bass, so it's better not to ask for fish because they can overcharge you as the prices aren't displayed on the menu. Nevertheless, there was a wonderful live singer who fixed it. To sum up, it was fantastic and I think it's a perfect spot for a loving meal. I hope we have a better experience next time, I have high expectations.
