Description: The classic Grill and terrace, the gourmet restaurant of the Marbella Club, has long been a veritable culinary landmark. Its famous menu is made up of the most exquisite classic and traditional cuisines, both local and international. Only the best cuts of meat reach the grill and thus the emphasis is on seasonally available ingredients. All of this enhances the historical dishes served in the evocative patios of the hotel, possibly the most romantic setting in Europe, where guests linger over intimate dinners by the glow of candles and starlit skies. During hunting season, this fine restaurant suggests a special menu. Dress code: Smart casual, no shorts or jeans.

This was probably my favourite place for food and drinks. Although still special, having my wine glass taken before empty and wine not cheap. No apology even though bottle not finished yet either. Is the sort of thing that let's it down. Standards not quite as expected. Food was lovely though .

Great food at high but justified prices. We went here twice during our stay and the atmosphere and the quality of the food is excellent. Also, the Champagne Room bar next door is perfect for a drink before or after dinner. The service was excellent and very friendly and the wine list extensive but with a range for every wallet size. One of the best restaurants in Costa del Sol.

Oh Lord! Read this and digest the gross incompetences which defy belief! And with prices that defy gravity things should be perfect. But in Marbella most of the top venues fall far far short of delivering. Booked for Dinner at 8pm on a Sunday Night. This Resteraunt looks and feels class, but so it should in this iconic venue. The Resteraunt menu is obviously tailored round people whose pockets are as deep as Australia and no regard for retrospective value for money. Harry's bar in Rome was the most expensive place we have ever eaten and this was still VFM because everything was right. At Marbella club NOTHING was right!!! We had a drink in the Bar, service was excellent, after 15minutes a waiter brought a menu. There was no lobster on the grill so we asked if we could have 2 Lobsters with tagliatelle pasta and two cheese soufflés to start which said a 20min wait was necessary. At nearly €30/each for the soufflés I was expecting Miracles! The wine waiter promptly came but we declined. The prices were hilarious even by Marbella standards! At 9.35 I asked a Waiter just how much longer we would be waiting. I was told when your ready walk through to the dining area. Ready? Ready? We had been sat there an hour and a half!!! When we walked through to Resteraunt we were greeted by the manager who said curtly "er can I help you". I Exploded! He quickly ushered us asap to a table and then appeared two pathetic flat 4cm diameter x 3cm risen stodgy soufflés sat on a plate as large as a car wheel rim, these were what some restaurants call "twice baked" or in other words "warmed up". At €60 this was RIDICULOUS and left us speechless. Trying to keep calm we ate them. Bread was ok but why the addition little plastic packets on nasty bread sticks? A bit tacky! Next the Lobster pasta. A small portion of tepid tagliatelle and a shelled, single clawed "giant shrimp" of a lobster On top took all of 4 minutes to eat. This then added a further €80 to the bill. Basically we just wanted to get out, including 4 spirit/mixers we left asap nearly €200 lighter. The venue was full groups of passé "jumper on shoulders" golfer type suntanned old men, four or five prehistoric old couples not speaking to each other because they are that bored, and a couple of Tom Jones lookalikes sat slorming with young tarty girls (prostitutes?). Now I know Marbella has lost it's sparkle somewhat, but if this is the best of culinary Marbella, it's time to go back to Benidorm!!!!!

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We sincerely appreciate your feedback. We are very sorry to hear that your experience was less than perfect. The Grill is a landmark restaurant in Marbella. We are very proud of our menu and the service we normally provide. As such, it is vital that we continue to raise the bar and show our clients that our prices reflect the value.

Our soufflé is one of our signature dishes; it has been on the menus for almost 50 years. As it is made from scratch, the kitchen requires 20-30 minutes to prepare it. You are absolutely right in that the soufflé should be served to perfection. We only wish you would have informed the wait staff of your dissatisfaction so we could have either removed it from the bill or had the kitchen remake it.

We would love to welcome you back so that we can show you the extraordinary service and gastronomy we serve at the Grill. I would also be pleased to respond to your other comments in a more personal note. Please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,


María Fernández de la Vega
Director of Guest Relations

Classy very good food and good service. Selection of menu is excellent and has a good variety to suit all. Difficult to book a table and seems to recognize their old clients more than others. Prices are exaggerated but food is worth eating.
