Amazing!

I visit Messina every time I'm in Marbella (about 4-5 times now). The food is amazing and I can always try something new and surprising. The service is also outstanding.

We read reviews and went there for wedding anniversary. Very disappointed. Decided not to have taster menu as I do not like eels. Portions very small and the service very pretentious. Bread were served in a brown paper bag. The entrecôte we had four half of mange tout and about six very tiny square of potatoes. Waitress put a one... More

Been many times and always surprised by this mans creativity and talent! Do try the gnocchi, skate wing and curry...to name a few. Pia was brilliant as always and they made extra effort as it was my friends birthday.

Went to Messina with 38 of my collegaes to celebrate. Even if we where many persons in a party mood, they managed to keep the food at a top level. We recommend this place to all people fancy gourmet food to decent price (for norwegians at least). We will be back - thank you!

We loved this place! They opened early for us (dining with a small child is tough in Spain) and gave us such a lovely dinner - highly recommend. It's creative and modern, but warm. Great food, wine recos, attention to detail. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Our table of 4 went for the 5 course tasting menu & 2 or 3 amuse bouches which were delicious, we were able to change one of the five courses which was very helpful. The food is deliciously creative and innovative and I have not experienced a meal like it before, the service was exceptional and each course was presented... More

Fabulous food, imaginative and perfectly cooked (starters of neck of tuna & bass particularly good, and fabulous cheese desert like you have never seen before) and a sense of theatre. Lovely service, a little quiet out of season, but best food we have eaten in the south coast
