First Marbella dinner

Just finished a great dinner at bistro paloma. Varied from the traditional "Spanish" offerings of fried fish. Swedish chef Patrick offers super epicurean delights to tingle the pallet away from fried offerings into savory meals. Highly recommend the torbut or the pork or the lamb. Waite staff... read more

Swedish chef Patrick offers super epicurean delights to tingle the pallet away from fried offerings into savory meals. Highly recommend the torbut or the pork or the lamb. Waite staff Lawrence is sure to complete your experience to a successful one.

This is our favourite restaurant in marbella. The setting, food, staff and drinks are idealic and perfect. Nothing is ever too much trouble, with always delicious food that never disappoints. Laurens and marlette are always just so helpful and really do set a good standard. It is always lovely to see Patrik the chef at the end of the evening... More

It was rainy and miserable outside when we entered this warm and inviting little restaurant. Our server, who was Dutch, was very nice and chatted with us as it was not that busy yet. We had a wonderful meal with an excellent bottle of wine suggested by our server. All the dishes we had were expertly prepared and delicious. The... More

My wife and I had dinner in this restaurant in Easter week. According to trip advisor there are around 1000 restaurants in Marbella and I am sure there are even more, so, as you would expect the standards are very high. During our visit to Marbella we ate in 4 restaurants, As well as this one we ate in The... More

Dined twice in Bistro Paloma during February, both times with two visitors and it was superb on both occasions. The food is delicious - everyone was delighted with their choice. The place is small but it has a very welcoming ambience and the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, Definitely one to be recommended.

Very nice location in the old town, very good food and staff, but for a group of 10 golfers it lacked buzz. Can't put my finger on it, maybe the dining area is just a little too small, and not so charming? A great place for a couple looking for a quiet meal. We weren't overly impressed.
