Fantastic Establishment!

You will not be disappointed, It pays to pre book a table to ensure you get in as this place does get pretty busy .....great food and drinks. Fantastic people, hospitality and live music.

This was the most expensive place we have eaten so far with prices similar to a nice restaurant in the UK. We had booked a few days in advance as they were fully booked for fri and sat evenings. We were greeted warmly when we arrived and other waiting staff all smiled and said hello. The interior is very nice... More

Tried this place as it was recommended to me by someone in the bar I was in. Booked a table and went there with some friends it was extremely busy and the staff seem to be in a rush. There was live music there but the food was very average and overpriced for what we were charged probably wouldn't go... More

We visited this restaurant several times during our recent stay near Marbella. It is tucked away past the other eateries and we would not have known about it unless a local English lady we got chatting to had recommended it. It's the place all the ex pats eat at. Booking is highly recommended as the food is excellent and tables... More

We visited this restaurant twice on our holiday and I cannot find fault at all. We ate on the "early bird" menu and this was fantastic value for money and again with the a la carte menu. The staff are very busy, but are always extremely attentive especially Victoria, the Salford lady. An extremely hard working, professional girl. Can't wait... More

Thank you for your review and of course the "special" mention. We will pass on your comment to the team The Early Bird menu is indeed very good value and is one of our busiest service times, so it's nice to know that we performed under pressure :) More

I would not normally review a restaurant without trying it out, but on this occasion I must admit that I have not eaten in The Playwright Restaurant as yet, but a lot of my friends and acquaintances have done so due to my recommendations, and have all raved about the place.

Anyone reading his review will no doubt be very confused compared to the many many 5 star awards and of course our Award of Excellence. We feel your comments have little substance on which to base your opinion on our staff members, but thank you for referring to our food as "good" More
