Really Nice Place to Dine

We have eaten here for the past 20 years or so and in that time they have had a few make-over's but one thing that remains consistent is the quality of the food and the fine service from loyal staff that seem to have been here forever.

We ate here last week after visiting Puerto Banus for the evening and I can't fault a thing :) I had the Chicken in Tarragon Sauce which was served with Potato Wedges and Veg and my boyfriend had the Lasagne. Both portion sizes were good and both meals were lovely!

good choice of vegetarian food well cooked and qood portions. Good location along the main strip. Prices higher than most of the Costa del Sol but not high for this location. For Puerto Banus the prices were reasonable. Service good without being in your face.

We´ve often eaten at this restaurant and were shocked by how poor the food was on this visit. Worse still three out of four of us had our meals served absolutely COLD. We surmised that they had prepared the three which were left cooling whilst the fourth was cooked. Surely they have a heated serving counter. All our food was... More

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

Very good Italian Restaurant located at Porta Banus with view on the yachts. Food of excellent quality, i ordered a pasta Don Leone with lobster and Caviar for 20 EUR and it was one of the best i ever ate. My son ate Pizza and was very satisfied. Absolutely a topper for Marbella.
