“A jewel of a find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Tucked away on a side street in the depths of Estepona, Robbie's is a tried and tested favourite restaurant of travellers who return over and over. Amazing decor and excellent friendly service. Faultless food and a very relaxed atmosphere.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We went as a party of 6 and were slightly disappointed. The starters are the size of main courses and quite a few people had a starter for their main. I had a spinach, bacon and liver salad for starter which was OK and I should have stopped there. The steak and kidney pie was poor - a very thin gravy and little seasoning - veg was overcooked. My friend had a the fillet steak which again was enormous and covered in a cloying sauce but meat and sauce were both cold. Service was OTT - between a group of us we had 3 different bottles of red wine and they insisted on a different set of glasses each time so the table was awash with glasses! The place itself is full of photo's of people who were once famous and the music is of the same era so I guess it knows its market and plays to it.

“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.
