“Beach House, Marbella, our favourite kitchen in Spain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

If you want to enjoy excellent food, good drinks, the best atmosphere on the Costa del Sol, relaxing - as well swinging music, straight on the beach, and be served by smiling , nice international young people under the most service and carismatic minded young "boss" (Guy)- do not waist time, book your table at the Beach House. We love to make food at home, however, the quality and standard of the Beach House makes this to be our holiday kitchen- can not wait to be back with Lucie & Guy! AC & Paalsan

“Good food, OK service and great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

Went for lunch, walked along the beach from Elveria. Location great, my duck salad was absolutely lovely, really good and my husbands salad was super. Agree with other reviews re the service. It was like being served by one of my teenage children, slighty disinterested and petulant. We ordered small beers and got large (not worth a complaint).
A family group arrived and wanted to change their table arrangements, the manageress said in a very loud voice, "Yes we'll change your table once these people have gone, they've got their bill" at which point everyone looked at us. We said "tell you what we'll finish our drink in the bar". It just felt a bit disappointing. We come to Marbella twice a year and are always looking for somewhere nice to eat but probably won't come back here - there are just better places along the beach that give you a better overall experience at a lower price.

“Slow decline...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Been here many times over the years. The first few times were superb, but since then the service and quality of food has been slowly declining (the prices havent declined though!). There was a sudden drop off in food quality a few years ago, Im guessing due to a change in chef. Also they seem to be employing staff who have either no command of english or no command of spanish. There is one waitress who I have complained about on three separate occasions due to being completely incompetent. Cant speak spanish or english and when I ask her for the bill , she just forgets. She is still working there.
I usually get a free glass of cava at this point, but after several of these, i start to wonder if the point is being missed!!
The positives are the restaurant is clean and tidy and in a superb location, right on the best beach in marbella with lovely views and a relaxed atmosphere.

“Great setting, lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

The Beach House is not one of the cheapest options on the coast however, if you are looking for a restaurant for a special evening then this is the place. The setting is a real draw, it's located right down at the beach side surrounded by palm trees and the sea lapping at the shore and with no-where else around, it feels somewhat more exclusive compared to the back to back dining options along the front in Marbella. The service is consistent - not out of this world but you always feel welcomed. The food is tasty and never disappoints, there is a broad range of options and styles of cuisine. The wine list is pretty good with a variety of price points to suit all pockets. It was an easy choice when I recently spent my birthday in Marbella and decided on a location for the evening. Somewhere you'll want to go back to - although one tip - ask for one of the tables towards the back of the outside seating area. You'll have much more room but you still get to enjoy the outdoor experience.

“Pricey but relaxed. A bit far from Marbella.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Loved the food. Had a good time drinking with my friends afterwards on the outdoor patio area. The beach is ok (as most beaches down on the coast) but this place for me at least is made for sunday lunches or possibly an earlier dinner. I live in marbella and would not make the effort to go here unless I had a lot of time to kill and just wanted something tried and tested.
