“Amazing steak! Best restaurant in PB.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2011

Four of us vistied this restaurant by chance when we were drawn in by the offer of a free bottle of wine as the place was empty! (It was 11 at night!) We all ordered different varieties of steak. I have to say, it is probably the best meal I've ever had. The wine was good, the food was out of this world, the service was warm & attentive without being claustrophobic and the chef even came out to say hello. If we had stayed longer, we would have gone back without a shadow of a doubt. There really is nothing I would change about Morelli's.

“Best steak ever....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2011

We visited Morelli's on a Saturday night and was really pleased with everything. The food was wonderful and I can highly recommend the steak, it was excellent.

Service was great, can't fault it at all.

“Average food and average service, nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2010

My husband ate at Morellis after recognizing it from trip advisor reviews and were not impressed. We have been in Marbella for three weeks and have eaten at many of the restaurants in the top ten with pleasant results. This was disappointing. Our server was very curt, the sangria was weak and syrupy and the food was just mediocre. We both had pasta dishes that were unremarkable. We would not go back. We ate at another Italian restaurant in Puerto Banus that was excellent in comparison - I think the name was Amore and Fantasias?? It was at the end of the mooring area by the lighthouse. We would go back there for sure.

“Beautiful Food shame it was so quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2010

We had a delicious meal today at Morelli's Retaurant in Puerto Banus. The food was all freshly cooked to order and tasted that way. The restaurant is ideally situated on the front row of the port with views over the Marina. The staff were attentive but not overbearing and the cost was very reasonable. We will return later in the holiday for an evening meal and reappraise the restaurant fully at that time. Overall very good and worth a visit.

“Easily the best restaurant at the Port”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2010

Having been recommended Morelli's, we decided on the first night of our holiday to check it out. We were made to feel very welcome and the staff were more than helpful. The menu was mouthwatering and we found it difficult to decide on which dish to choose! The kids menu had a good selection to choose from. We had a fantastic meal and choose to return not once, but twice to Morelli's before our holiday ended, so that speaks for itself!!
