Best place we ate all holiday

We arrived late in the evening and saw it was completely full. Luckily a family had finished and paid, saw we were waiting and kindly vacated the table so we were able to sit down.

I have visited this restaurant on several occasions and have always had a lovely meal. The staff are efficient and polite, you can see the chef cooking your meal in the open kitchen, the prices are very good for the standard of food. The ribs are enormous, I always try to share with someone else as the potion is that... More

Service is quick and enthusiastic. Food is excellent and very good value. I had Rack of Lamb and there were 5 cutlets of good quality.Setting is in a courtyard with several other restaurants e.g., Steak house, Italian, Chinese plus Irish Pub and Cocktail Bar so a little cramped at night. Being a cafe it opens from breakfast which I would... More

Always had good food and service on previous visits over the past couple of years, but today was a very different experience. Unprofessional service from the waitress who gave the impression that she did not want to be there. Had to ask for table to be cleaned, very slow service, 45 minutes from ordering to receiving food, even though the... More

We had a meal recently in this lovely restaurant, the ribs had been recommended to us and they certainly didn't disappoint. James who was working there was so friendly and the service was very good. We shared prawns to start then had the best ribs I've ever had, the meat was falling off the bones. Definitely a place to go... More

This is a lovely restaurant. Great atmosphere, our Welsh waiter was charming and friendly and the food was superb. I had probably the best sole I've ever eaten. Beautifully prepared and cooked to perfection. Will definitely return when I'm next in the area.

Have lived and been to many of the restaurants in and around Marbella. James always greets everyone in a warm way. Very knowledgeable of what we had prior and quick to recommend alternative along with a suitable wine. For you lot who likes deserts I'd suggest the carrot cake but be quick as its many peoples favourite.
