Tried on the off chance. Wonderful. Lovely white table cloths, excellent service, quite a few Irish staff. Beautiful food, husband said it was the best meal he had had on the coast in 12 years, some recommendation as he is very fussy. Small wine list but excellent selection. If you go Thursday to Saturday there is live entertainment and you... More

Dined on a Thursday evening with my girlfriend and had a great night. Restaurant was reasonably quiet but entertainment from Johny G was fantastic. Great collection of music tracks and always worth a watch for his dance moves. Food was cooked and presented beautifully, had delightful sticky toffee pudding to finish off a wonderful night.

The food is always great and the service and atmosphere matches. Can't knock this restaurant. I use it with family and friends during holiday periods and friends when we have golf trips. Always spot on.

Excellent food, service and ambience - with the best prawn pil pil I've ever had. The staff were very friendly and attentive - not too fussy. Don't miss out on this culinary gem

We went to the playwright on Friday night. The experience was stunning. We were invited by another couple, who are regulars there. I couldn't say more about the food and service. Divine.

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

Thank you so much for a glowing, and somewhat extended report. You know there's no harm in having a three course desert menu next time! See you soon :) More
