12 of us went for a celebratory dinner. The atmosphere was great and we didn't feel we were in the way of others or pushed to any sides. The place is quite small so I would advise any booking - even for two of you.
The staff were very helpful and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. They even brought a celebratory cake out for our friend whose birthday it was.
The food was delicious, none of us had a bad meal in there, and the food, while pricey was not as bad as some other restaurants in Marbella.
A really enjoyable evening was had by all and if we had had more time we would have gone back.

This is a traditional restaurant on the first floor overlooking "Orange Square". It is not large and therefore booking is recommended, especially if you want one of the 2 tables on the balcony overlooking the Square. We arrived for an early dinner at 7.30pm and the restaurant was quiet when we arrived on a Thursday evening: every table was taken by 9pm.
The menu was extensive and the food was absolutely delicious. We were celebrating the purchase of a property in Spain and when our dessert arrived, it was beautifully presented with "Felicitaciones" (see photo).
Service was polite, friendly and efficient and the atmosphere in the restaurant was enhanced by the large collection of art.
A great evening and we'll be back!

Really enjoyed our meal in this lovely restaurant overlooking Orange Square. Food was excellent and not a very big restaurant. Ideally, book one of the tables for 2 on the balcony.

First of all: reserve a table 1-2 days before, on our first trial it was fully booked, but it really worth to wait 1-2 days. Restaurant has a nice atmosphere, waiters are extremely nice, food is simply perfect. I have celiac disease, the menu was explained to me, I had plenty of options to choose. All food was delicious, recommended wine matched our food well. Gluten free bread was also available.

Saved a trip to Paco Jimenez for our final night in Marbella. It was well worth it. Made our reservations early in the week and asked for one of the two balcony tables and were fortunate to receive our request. The owner mentioned that we would be in the sun, but it was not a problem. We were able to see the activities in the square of Old Marbella and enjoy a splendid meal. Excellent bread was provided to accompany our appetizer-prawn cocktail with enough chilled fresh prawns in a creamy sauce to share. My wife had the scallops-prawn au gratin and I had the rabbit stew. Both were excellent and the servings were good size. Our service was very personal, the food was great, and I wish they were located in Florida so we could try more items on their menu. What a great dinner to complete our stay in Spain.
