“Professional cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Robbies is known for many years, as founder of the Yellow Book restaurant about 30 years ago, he split with his companion and started under the name Robbies. An experienced professional in the field, unfortunately with not always constantly in quality. But when lucky you'll have a nice dinner.

“Relaxed atmosphere, lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Fabulous food, attentive staff, lovely evening. Highly recommend it. Not easy to find but well worth it when you do. Cheese soufflé was to die for. Lovely collection of star photos, will definitely be back when next in Spain, couldn't write anything negative, was well worth a visit. Thanks for a lovely night.

“good but oldfashioned”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

English owned Robbies is a restaurant with long history (27 years) nicely located in the outskirts of the old town of Estepona. The owner and his staff are extremely attentive and take care of every detail. Decorated almost in a rococo style with strong details of kitch. It works as the theme is film stars ant every inch of the walls is covered in photos of film stars. The dishes have names of the film stars as well so everything makes sense. The food is well cooked and made of fresh ingredients of very good quality. However it feels old-fashioned. Most of the dishes are very rich; some gratinated with cheese and with heavy sauces and it’s a lot of it! Unfortunately and despite its well prepared and of good ingredients, it does not feel fresh enough specifically in times when awareness of healthy habits is trend. Could be perfect if the menu would be modernized, now therefore only normal.

“Wonderful meal and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

We stopped in early to see the restaurant and the menu. Made to feel welcomed, menu looked good also past comments on TA and others.
Came back about 1 hour later. Had grilled squid, fried sea anemones, salad, and few others. Vino, etc. definitely recommend

“very good service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

The service was very good as soon as we got though the door we where setted to have our drinks in the bar.

After the drinks we where taken into the restaurant and me and my family had an amazing time eating the lovely food.

The atmosphere was interesting all the walls where covered full of pictures of singers, a little bit cramped for me.

P.S. I will be coming back :)
