Gorgeous food with great service

Total treasure of a restaurant in old town Marbella, really good service and a fab menu, everything tasted so good! The Mud Slide dessert (shared by two people) was amazing, definitely one to try. Book in advance!

What a fantastic bistro in Marbella. Had a table outside this small bistro which adds to the ambience. The food, service is beyond any fault. House wine is very good at around only 13euros a bottle. I think you will need to book in advance.

Paloma is a small cosy restaurant with a good selection of mid range wines. Choosing two different fish dishes both turned out to be excellent. I would say Spanish with a Scandinavian twist.

My wife and I visited Marbella for the first time last week and found this little treasure of a restaurant. It was so good the first visit, we returned a couple of evenings later and booked in advance to ensure we got a table. The welcome and atmosphere were great on both occasions. I had the beef stroganoff on the... More

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 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

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
