Wandering around Marbella today we wondered where to eat good Spanish food. We happened on bar el estrecho and as we could hear Spanish coming from within we thought if this is where the locals go then this is where we will eat. Wow! We have been in Spain 8 years and i think i have had the best calamares and rosada today in El Estrecho. Try the salmorejo too, its fabulous.
Service was excellent. I cant fault it, Don't know what some other reviewers complaining about, perhaps the language barrier tainted their experience but that is their fault not the fault of El Estrecho's. This is a typical Spanish bar where guess what, they speak Spanish but please don't let that put you off. Try this place, its well worth it. I'm definitely going to return to try the rest of the menu!
