Curro, the pastry chef, makes the best soufflés in Marbella. I’ve only ever had better at the Waterside Inn in England and the Waterside Inn restaurant has three Michelin stars. We order soufflé's all over the world and to use an expression made famous by a much missed "Sunday Times" reataurant critic who passed away earlier this year.....Curro's soufflés are "historic."
So, tip Number one.....try the soufflé....and unusually, you can choose whatever flavour you desire. We had Grand Marnier.....wonderful. Tip number 2.....if you are celebrating a birthday, tell them in advance. They then surprise you with a cake...also lovely, presumably made by the same pastry chef.
For evening dining al fresco in high season, only Villa Tiberio can compete with this. Marbella Club is terrific, their F and B people have totally got it together. The staff have all be around for years and work together as a team.
Have you ever heard a bad pianist in a restaurant or a terrible singer? I have often....including at two nearby restaurants.....but not here....the lady singer is good and the pianist is THE best in Marbella.
My wife did not want a starter. I ordered fois gras for myself. They brought this, put it in the centre of the table, produced two glasses of sauternes (the dish normally comes with one glass of sauterne) and two plates thus giving my wife the option. That was very classy.....but Marbella Club Grille is genuinely very classy.
The sommelier is highly worth talking to....he’s very, very good.
No visit to Marbella can be complete without at least one dinner at Marbella Club Grille (and also a visit to their poolside buffet for lunch). I'm only sorry I no longer stay at the hotel and that is only because we now have a home nearby....however I always recommend the hotel to friends who are visiting the area.
There are no downsides.......long may it last. A lovely venue, terrific service and good food that balances out the dreadful The-Only-Way-Is-Essex-type scenes at some of the beach clubs. There is a classy side to Marbella and it starts here.
