I always make a point of seeking out a Michelin restaurant, whichever town I happen to be holidaying in. I had high hopes for the Messina. When I actually got there, I struggled to find any starter I wanted. 'Baby goat's neck' is not really something I ever want to see on a menu! The staff were very pleasant, but... More

Recently visited this restaurant with three other people. The moment we arrived it was such a fantastic experience. The décor is smart, staff charming and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding. The cutlery, glasses and plates etc were top quality and different. The place is spotlessly clean and the food was amazing. You just have to go if you are in... More

Greeted by two beautiful and attentive waitresses. Decor spacious and attractive. Starched linen napkins, interesting silver metal menu cases, all china and glass were of excellent quality. Food delicately presented, tasty morsels as pre meal, two different flavours of oils for good bread dipping. Good menu choices. Cooking of a high standard. All very enjoyable and to be recommended.

Everything from food presentation to the taste was perfect. We had the 'Sushi de-fusion' (Tuna sashimi)i to start, which was exceptional, followed by... More

It is clear that they work hard to make your dining experience interesting and rewarding. The staff is very knowledgeable and attentive. If your are expecting traditional presentation and menus this is not for you. If you are adventurous this is your place.

We had the tasting menu with wine and though expensive we enjoyed the experience. A little too much food for us but you can have any course off of the main menu like crab curry ravioli with banana!

Messina is a top notch restaurant, With d e l i c i o u s Food. The dining room itself is large, With large tables - bliss, for once :) . This restaurant is 150 % Professional - but friendly - and the Food is out of this world as is the presentation. A culinary oasis :)

My wife and I finally got round to trying Messina and were absolutely delighted! Finally we have found a restaurant in Marbella that delivers what is promises as we have been disappointed with so many others in the town. The young staff were exemplary and were able to guide us on any dish we were unsure of. Not the cheapest... More

We had a lovely dinner at Messina! Very interesting and flavourful dishes! Wonderful fusion cuisine! The tuna sushi was superb! We all had pasta dishes which were exceptional - full of flavour! Service was great - very correct, efficient and friendly! Some excellent Albarhino to go with the meal! A truly delightful evening!
