Eaten here 3 times on visits to see friends in Spain. The food is excellent and service to match. Quite often has live music in bar and the bar can be lively. However the restaurant is very traditional and relaxing. Recommend the steak and a good bottle of Red. The wine list is reasonable and not over the top. We... More

We were extremely disappointed with the poor service on our visit here in October, but decided to try again and went back for another Sunday lunch yesterday. Manager Jamie more than made amends and this time we were looked after really well. The food was once again excellent, and the staff coped admirably although the restaurant was very full. The...

I have been to this restaurant twice in the past two weeks and both times the service and food has been excellent. They have a singer who sings a variety of music and is very entertaining. The menu is varied and there is something for everybody.

Invited by my brother to join him and three others from Birmingham UK for my first experience at playwrights. Fantastic warm welcome, great service by staff who obviously enjoyed working there, large choice of good wine and spirits served in the correct type of glass, sat down at our table to look at the menu... Well what a great choice... More

We were so impressed by our delicious meal and the elegant, but comfortable atmosphere. All went downhill when we waited 25 minutes for a dessert menu and then another 20 minutes for the actual dessert. There were too few employees to handle the very full restaurant and their attention was scattered. So very disappointing when the meal was so good!

We hadn't been back to this restaurant in a year. We were given a great table next to the singer in the bar area. Drinks were served at the counter immediately and shortly after we moved to our table. The Tempura of Lemon Sole in a sweet chilli sauce is truly beautiful. We asked for a starter portion and were...

The restaurant is 20 mins from Marbella but close to the hotel where we stayed. The food was exceptional especially the starters and mains. The choice was varied and of good quality. Evidently it was well received as every evening it was full with parties, families and couples enjoying the atmosphere and food. Wine choice was extensive and reasonably priced.... More

Located in Elviria I had heard good things about The Playwright and was eager in anticipation to try this restaurant. Upon being seated, we were surprised be the annoyance of flies at our table and for an indoor establishment in Spain, not an uncommon scenario but not pleasant nonetheless. Drinks were forthcoming with haste which was great however from that... More
