Excellent food and service well worth the effort to find it in the lovely backstreets of old town Marbella. You will need to book if your are not eating early doors. House wine very good. Don't miss this place if you are in the old town

We went with friends who had been before. We were greeted warmly by the Chef and the friendly staff. Its small inside and very quaint. We had the steak which was very good and the desserts too. An enjoyable dinner. Just around the corner from Orange Square great location. We look forward to returning again.

We ate here before we read any reviews. We went as a couple and both got the fillet steak served with vegetables and an option of mash, fries or baked potato. Service was really good with friendly staff. Food presentation was brilliant and tasted even better. You could not fault it. Just located off the Orange Square with competitive prices.... More

Both the food and the house wine was beyond expectations at Bistro Paloma. We had the salmon and the lamb, and sangria for dessert. Located a few steps away from the busiest streets in the old town, it is a perfect location for a calm dinner with a partner or friends. I would recommend Paloma, and we are definitely coming...
