If in area just go.........

Was in Marbella and had a early evening meal at this restaurant with my wife on Thursday 12th March. No question this is a lovely establishment with excellent staff and the food is very good, the ambience is lovely. Would recommend eating inside but just go and you will not regret it.

We now call ourselves Playwright Regulars when we visit this part of Spain. The one thing we are always wary about is, will it be as good as the last time? Thankfully we have yet to be disappointed with The Playwright. The standard of food is always amazing, from the seafood chowder, mussels and pate we had for starters to... More

Drive past and decided to call in for dinner. Didn't realise it was a bar too. Had live music on and a great vibe. We had to wait ages for our drinks and when they finally arrived the waiter gave them to us free as we hadn't complained! Then gave us another round free too! The food was excellent. Highly... More

Great flexible service and excellent food at acceptable prices. Depending on the day of the week there is live music which will allow you... More

One of the best restaurant in Elviria. Very elegant presentation and delicious food. If you are in the area do not hesitate to dine for lunch or dinner. I highly recommend!! Price is very reasonable specially if you dine before 7:30pm.

Easy to find just off the main highway between Elviria and Marbella. I got treated here by friends for a lovely lunchtime menu of 2 courses for €15. I had mushrooms pil pil with jamon and battered sole with lime. My friend had seared salmon. It was all delicious and well-presented. The decor is original with huge photos of famous... More

Stunning food, 6 of us went for Sunday lunch and there wasn't a morsel left at the end of it, everything from vegetable soup, seafood chowder, pate, and mushrooms in a Stilton sauce to roast beef, belly of pork and chicken roulade we all devoured. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone

Thanks for your 5 star review. Our Sunday Lunch is indeed very popular and we're glad you enjoyed it. I especially like this bit "morsel left at the end of it" More
