Stomach and Pocket empty after our visit.

Pasta dishes were excellent although not enough to stop you leaving hungry. For €15 euros you would expect more than a half portion . Even the glass of wine at €4.50 was less than half full . Owners orders seemingly .

Don Leone has been in Puerto Banus more or less since the Port was built about 40 years ago. It was originally probably the most expensive "Fine Dining" Restaurant in the Port. Some years ago business must have declined to such an extent that the Owners [ I am not sure if it was the original Owners or if it... More

I used to eat at The old Don Leone for many years, this was the first time since the change. Service was good but food not what it used to be. I think the only thing the same is the name don't think I will be rushing back!

Nice food, I chose a couple of starters as Italian is not really my thing but they were nice, the Prawn dish was beautifully presented. My friend chose the Onions rings, and be warned you get loads! Could easily be shared between 2. Had a nice bottle of wine, and very reasonably priced too.
