“Great Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We dined as a group of friends and the whole experience was very good. The restaurant is in a privileged position with a great view over the sea and in the evening it makes for an excellent setting.
The quality of service and the overall style of the restaurant is first class. We had a series of dishes recommended as entrees by the owner and his choice was perfect, sufficient but not too much of some very tasty sea foods. Main courses were chosen individually, most went for the hake or the sole and no one was disappointed. The meal was accompanied by a delicious white wine, a Rueda Verdejo, Mantel Blanco and a very attentive waiter made sure our glasses were never empty.
Rare to find such a good restaurant in such a setting, very different from the standard sea food offerings of the Paseo Maritino in Marbella.

As to pricing, for the evning we had not so expensive but definitely above average.

“Terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

Very disappointed in the service, waitress was just plain rude! No butter on tables for the rolls. Served tea, waited ages for milk, tea was cold by the time we got it. The food was average. We would not return.

A lovely little restaurant almost hidden away on top of the cinema complex on the paseo. Great views and great service from the very helpful maitre d' and his staff. Very good food and wine made for a first class evening.

“A decent restaurant in Marbella”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

At last some imaginative and well-prepared food in a wonderful setting. A friendly welcome and good service in this undiscovered gem with great views over the Paseo and the Mediterranean. Some unusual and interesting dishes at relatively affordable prices. We had a lovely meal this evening as the sun set. Strongly recommended to those seeking a change from the standard formula on the Costa.
