Enjoyed a very good diner with local wines. Espacially the Scarlett prawn risotto in combination with a excellent wine from Cadiz can be recommended. Although we had a diner dor two we would take our kids to this restaurant without hesitation.

The location is fabulous and very private, particularly if you compare it to any other restaurant in casco antiguo. We had sea bass tartare as starter and a WONDERFUL Chateaubriand as main (you can’t miss this!). Kind and sharp service. We will definitely come back...More

A good attempt at a fine dining meal in Marbella, but some of the dishes weren't executed as well as we'd have hoped. The man running the show was incredibly nice and made the experience better. Food was decent, which in Marbella is way above...More

This was a fantastic gastronomical experience and is an absolute must for food enthusiasts. The staff were so friendly and interested in their wares which makes a huge difference. We were given a table in the inside courtyard rather than on the street and it...More

The restaurant is located in a privated beautiful patio garden, the ambience, service and food were all incredible. I haven't been so pleased with a restaurant in a long time. Would highly recommend it to anyone for a romantic and/or personal meal
