Undoubtedly one of the best restaurants in Marbella. Truly excellent food served by a friendly and well informed team. Relatively small restaurant so reservations absolutely vital. Not to be missed on a visit to Marbella

Oh my god. Amazing dinner. Starter was a complete reinvention of 70's classics - prawn cocktail but with caviar, quail egg and fresh oranges & Parma ham with melon but with really great jamon iberico. As for the main course - confit duck (the photo) but with a really deep sauce, pistachio... If you visit Marbella eat here!

Lovely romantic rustic setting on the always beautiful orange square. Very attentive friendly service and nicely presented dishes. The main attraction is however the atmosphere.

We chose this restaurant as it had been recommended to us by "word of mouth" and TripAdvisor but it was nothing special. We chose the turbot that was not at all as it had been described to us. It was supposed to be garnished with muscles wrapped in bacon but all we got was a very small portion of turbot... More

Amazing place, very hidden, it's upstairs above a gallery. Upon arrival, was treated like a celebrity, the food was fresh, king prawns and the first and vegetable was succulent and delicious. The goo presentation was like first class, like a sushi chef that has presented it. Well worth the price €33! Must try! You won't regret it. Wonderful, would visit... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with exquisite food and atmosphere. The food and wine were absolutely wonderful and the atmosphere was warm and intimate. This was a special dinner and would be considered fine dining. I would eat here again!

Upstairs in the corner of the square but so worth finding. We got the last table so booking is probably necessary. The best meal we had in Marbella. Every dish was gorgeous. Will be back

Finally a "real" restaurant with decent waiters who actually care for their guests. The food was so delicious, very gourmet! We had a starter and a dessert wine on the house. It was all very romantic with the view to the Plaza de los naranjas, the Spanish interior and the living fire place. I'm definitely gonna come back

The restaurant is located above an art gallery and can be somewhat confusing to find, but search for the art gallery on the Orange square, enter into the gallery and go upstairs and you find the restaurant! It is advisable to book a table since theere are only a limited amount of tables available, which makes the restaurant very cosy... More
