Eat here with a friend on our first night of a girly trip. It was busy so we decided to go in. Discovered it looked busy as a convention group had taken up most of it. I had duck confit that was tiny and was smothered in salty gravy with frozen veg and watery mash that tasted of nothing! My... More

If you're looking for good Italian food with front view this is one of the best places in the harbour by my opinion. I have been here for working lunch alone (with my laptop) quite a few times and they never disappoint me. Food is very good, service equally as good and I truly believe you here get really good...

We have visited Don Leone twice over the last week and both times left happy. Both times we had pizzas and bruschetta, so I cannot really write about the rest of the food. The pizzas were great, better than any pizza you can get in Ireland, and service was fast and friendly. The staff remembered us in our second visit... More

Had a recent week in Puerto Banus and found ourselves here on one occasions. The restaurant is nicely placed over looking the marina. The restaurant is light and airy. With good service and nice food, it made for a nice evening. The only criticism would be that there was quite a wait between starters and main (30-40 minutes) and it... More

Picked this restaurant for people watching and not expecting a lot from the food. We had the perfect spot at the pavement to watch the posers go by, though indoors looked a little unexciting. My Pizza with Parma ham, rocket and parmesan was excellent - you won't get better anywhere. My husbands bolognese calzone was very bland. However the bill,... More

Don Leone is a decent enough restaurant and relatively good value, but you'll find better a couple of doors down. It's often empty and that could be because they beg you to go in, and that really doesn't look good. If everywhere else is busy, you'll certainly find a seat.
