“Best meal in Marbella!”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

We had to book a few days in advance to get the lovely table on the terrace (there are only 2 tables outside) but it was worth the wait it as it was nice and warm and we could enjoy the view while having the best meal of our whole trip! We shared the Scallops for a starter and they were by far the best ive ever had, the sauce was so delicious and the scallops were so fresh and delicious! They give you really tasty hot garlic bread too which was great with our starter! We then shared the rack of lamb and the Veal, both were cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. The service was excellent too, I couldn't fault this restaurant at all, I only wish we had more time here to come back again as everything coming out of the kitchen looked so good! The price was not bad either, for a bottle of wine, 2 extra glasses, 1 starter, 2 mains and 2 desserts it came to 115euros which i think is exceptional value for the quality of food, setting and service! If you are in Marbella don't leave without trying this restaurant you wont be disappointed :)

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Walked in without booking but I think we were lucky to get a table.

Nice atmosphere and lovely welcome.

Went for mains only as we had a big lunch, had fish mixed grill and the lamb honey mint.

Genuinely 2 of the nicest dishes we've had and I've eaten in decent restaurants.

5 stat food and atmosphere.

Hidden in the corner of orange square, look for the sign on the first floor and entrance is through a mini art gallery.

“Authentic Sanish”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Ok , this is a high quality Spanish place upstairs above Orange square. Orange square is the tourist location. However the food is brilliant. Give it a go.
