Skandies may be small but it's easy to see why it is such a big favourite in Marbella. We were very lucky to have been taken there by friends who have been going there for years. Advance booking is probably essential. Front of the house appears to be handled by the lady owner and her service is impeccable - warm,... More

We were eating in another restaurant when the couple on the next table highly recommended Skandies, but said we would have to book. The next morning we walked around and found it behind the old lighthouse near the harbour. It was closed with a small sign of opening times 7pm to 12pm with no obvious way of booking. We chanced...

The food was perfect, the wine was lovely and the service was second to none. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Marbella. I would advise you... More

We have been going to Marbella almost every year for close to 20 years. Several years back, we lucked into Skandies, and have been eating there at least twice a week during our week-long visits. The food is SOOOO good. (The spongies are my favorite...mushrooms in an amazing garlic butter sauce that you sop up with crusty bread!). Anne is... More

A small restaurant, 2nd line, behind the lighthouse in Marbella. Anna gives great service. The food is excellent and always hot. Give it a try, you will love it. Skandies never disappoints.

3 of us visited Skandies mid week and had a wonderful meal. The mushrooms, soup and chicken wings were excellent as starters and each person adored their main course, spicy chicken pasta called 'honey', meatballs and the steak which was succulent. Anne, the front of house person, is warm, professional and very efficient. Mikey,the Swedish chef, who has created these... More

We usually get to Skandies at least once a year & every time I wish they were nearer so we could go there more often . As always Anna the boss gives you her wonderful greeting ( she and her business partner run this restaurant without any additional help) , the biggest problem then is deciding what to choose ,...

We have been to this restaurant twice in the last week. Food is very good ( particularly their African Curry), service excellent and well worth return visits. It's one street back from the main promenade, so there is no view - but it also makes it a lot calmer too!
