Lovely

Hanging out with family. Eating good fresh local food, at a beach on the Mediterranean sea. You can not go wrong. Bring time, they have been very busy, the times i have been there.

My family goes to Marbella at least twice a year and we always eat at El Laurel. Sat here on a Saturday night about sun down it occurred to us that we don't come to this restaurant enough !!. First setting.. perfect , it's smack bang on the beach and your only a few feet from the med. Second service... More

Went at the weekend had the best paella ever, returned Thursday for lunch had a selection of small fish, quality of which was very poor. Complained to the head waiter who just made face, he collected the plates and asked if we would like a dessert, to which we requested the bill. Shame fantastic location poor fish.

We have had lunch twice at this beachside restaurant. Super location with sun beds (6 euros each) and parking near by. Reasonable food and cheerful service. Grilled fish, salads etc.

We were on the beach, with... More

Our second year to the area which won't be the last. This beach restaurant shares the coast with similar venues with similar facilities but the Laurel is our local spot away from home. The position is untouched with golden sands stretching for miles and clean gentle sea lapping at the shore. The restaurant's menu must be very similar to the... More

This is lovely place set next to the beach which I will have to visit during the day.There was an array of seafood on offer and I really enjoyed my juicy lobster at a reasonable price.Most certainly somewhere I will return!

We always visit El Laurel for lunch or dinner or if on the beach just to have a snack and drink on the terrace. In the winter months it is nice to sit on the terrace, wrapped up, and watch the sun setting.
