Visited twice and found the service friendly, charming and excellent, and the cooking very accomplished. The mixed grilled seafood was a huge portion and everything very fresh and beautifully cooked and presented. The staff seem to genuinely want the customers to enjoy the experience. Prices at a sensible level for the quality offered.

Stumbled on it last time in Marbella and was most impressed. Headed down immediately on arrival this January to find it fully booked. Got the following night though and was wowed again.

Didn't live up to its rating on Tripadvisor. Solid cooking with good presentation. Staff were good but it was ordinary.

This was my third visit to Paco Jimenez in the past year. I keep going back because each time, it just gets better and better. We didn't have a reservation. Being January we thought we were safe but 'WRONG'. They were booked out. Thankfully the lady remembered us from last time as we have a red head who you couldn't... More

I can't believe that this was the first time I had been to this lovely restaurant, it certainly won't be the last. On the first floor overlooking Marbellas Orange Square, it felt like we were in the front room of a family of Spanish food lovers. After placing our order they suggested that we had ordered a little too much!... More

We were attracted by the cosy and historic look of this place located on the Orange Square in the Old Town of Marbella, and decided to take a chance. And were not disappointed! Traditional spanish architecture of the building and the walls covered by paintings create a charming and romantic atmisphere. The restaurant is rather small and, as evening progressed,... More
