Located in the very heart of the old town of Malaga this is a tiny atmospheric place decorated with bright mediterranean colours. Food was excellent and a bit different - turbot with beetroot worked really well. Service very friendly and helpful. Prices reasonable for quality of food - mains around €20. Really enjoyed pour evening and will definitely return

We had walked past this restaurant on a number of occasions on previous visits to Marbella and had always remarked on its attractiveness. However, we had never got round to sampling the place - until last weekend. We arrived early and on the chance that the restaurant would be open and would be able to accommodate us. The very amiable... More

Having read the other reviews on TripAdvisor we set out on a cold February evening to find this restaurant and what a find. This is a small cosy bistro in the centre of the old town and serves a good quality meal for a reasonable price. I had the Chilli Prawns which were beautifully cooked and my husband had the... More

We were recommended to eat at Bistro Palermo by our hotel (Villa Marbella) and I'm so glad they did. On a chilly February evening the restaurant looked warm and welcoming. We had no reservation but were welcomed anyway. It's quite small but well furnished and as cozy inside as it looks from the outside. There were three or four other... More

We were very lucky to stumble across this charming little restaurant in old town Marbella (though having seen it mentioned on this site beforehand). We had to wait a few minutes for a table to become available and while we were waiting another ten people were turned away - so best to book. The Dutch owner was very friendly and... More

This was my favourite restaurant during our holiday in the summer of 2014. The food was lovely and the service fantastic in that the staff were very pleasant and friendly but not overbearing. The setting is nice, you are basically dining on the street outside the restaurant but as it is not a busy street this isn't an issue and... More

Located in the heart of the Old Town, this is the best restaurant in Marbella in my opinion. Out of ten days in Marbella we chose to spend three evening meals here. The service and ambience cannot be beaten. (Upon entering the Old Town, avoid the main square, it is the same generic food). The fillet steak at Bistro Paloma... More

From making a reservation to paying the bill everything was great. Made a morning booking on their voice mail. Lawrence rang us back to confirm everything. The restaurant is in the old town of Marbella and is both comfortable and intimate. Food, wine & atmosphere were terrific. Will be recommending it to friends and will be returning in the spring.
