“A real treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended by a local olive oil/wine store. We have been in Seville, Cadiz, Ronda, and Marbella for the last two weeks, but this was the highlight. Handcrafted, beautifully presented, delicious food. After many experiences of cold, unfriendly service, the waiter and owner were warm and inviting. Do not miss this restaurant!

“Great food, friendly staff, hospitable owner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Strongly recommended, very nice food (although you may wish to request a lighter hand on the salt) with a very interesting menu. Very small and popular so best to book if you can. Very friendly and hospitable, great dining experience. Wine list was reasonable also. We will certainly return and in fact on the strength of our first visit immediately re-booked again for later on in the week. Marbella, and Casco Antiguo in particular, has many restaurants very few of which are poor, but some stand out above the others for both the food and the staff, this one does.

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Yet again tripadvisor has proved to be invaluable. My partner and I dined here during our stay in Marbella. I couldn't find it the first night because we weren't in the old town. Doh. From the main road into Marbella you need to be on the opposite side to the beach side. The restaurant is small but very swanky. The food is Michelin star standard and we got star treatment with a couple of extra dishes and a free glass of champagne from the owner :-)

“Nice things come in small packages!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Found this one on trip advisor and was worth the effort. We went in and the waiter welcomed us with a smile and showed us to our table. The place is tiny! So much so your living room might be bigger. The food, I have to say was amazing. Small menu which is always a good sign but with a good selection to choose from. The two chefs are obviously dedicated and take pride in their art. Starters were around 10€ and mains starting from 17€ to 24€ with deserts priced at 6€ each. It might be pricey for some but the waiter brings you little extras which are not charged on the bill. It's only open in the evenings and reservations are a must in the summer months.

“Glad we read Trip Advisor and booked this fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Ate August 2012 and pre-booked duly noting the previous comments that it was small and wanted to guarantee a table. Not the easiest place to find but well worth the trek.
We went for the menu of the day/tasting menu which was around 5 courses and each one was absolutely fantastic with various extras thrown in. Think it was around 25-30 Euros per person
We had a fantastic evening guessing that the ingredients in each dish and can highly recommend the food and service in Tempora. Can't wait to return to sample their food and prices again.
Thank you Trip Advisor for the recommendation!
