If you like eating in special places from time to time, this is a culinary experience. We frequented this place a lot when it was up on the hill above Elveria. Food always special and the menu changed little for a few years when it moved to Marbella. However, this place is very good value if you are expecting Michelin... More

This was our first visit to Restaurante Messina and we completely agree with previous reviews that praise the high quality of the food and the overall dining experience. Over the years we have been fortunate enough to eat in a number of highly reputed restaurants, many with 1 or 2 stars and our experience last night was one of the... More

have eaten here many times and in the past always completely satisfied but my last visit with some golfing friends wasn't just as good hard to say what going wrong as the food is excellent but not much atmosphere in evidence so perhaps they need to have a bit of a rethink on style

I have visited Messina a few times now and it has never disappointed. I always have the tasting menu, it always top quality and something different to the normal restaurants in the area. Staff are always very helpful and polite, on my last visit there was a vegetarian with us, the staff modified the tasting menu to their diet which... More

I have visited Messina on a few occasions and I have found it a very pleasurable experience! You are looked after with great care and respect and that is before you start eating. It's an unhurried affair with homemade rolls served with special oils and vinegar and as my title suggests wonderful inventive menu designed to be a work of... More
