“Nice ambiance and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

We stayed 12 days in Jandia and it was rather difficult to find good restaurants in the Jandia & Morro Jable area. We only discovered Restaurant Marabu 2 days before our holiday ended. We were very fortunate to get a table on the last 2 evenings of our holidays as losts of regular guests seem to dine here every night. We enjoyed the restaurant ver much. You can eat indoors or outdoors in a lovely garden. Very friendly service and GREAT food. The best gazpacho I have ever had, very good meats, fresh vegetables, delicious fish, great desserts and interesting wine list. Try the beuatiful presented platter with serveral starters! When you decide to dine here you must take your time and not be in a hurry. It can be rather busy and then it takes some time before you get your food. We think this is the very best restaurant in the area. We also like the restaurant Avenida del Mar and the Italian restaurant Mattarello in Morro Jable.

“Fabulous...........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2011

If you are in the area this is a must! A proper Spanish restaurant serving locals and tourists a fine selection of well prepared dishes.
We were staying next door and didn't realise this place existed until our last night! We were fortuante to get chatting to a couple who had been the previous evening and accompanied us there for their second night. The dishes were excellent and fairly priced.
Should we retrn to the area we will have no hesitation in returning.

“I would give a 6 if I could!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2010 via mobile

The food was delicious - the seafood starter was enough for 2 people to share- although when it came my husband wanted it to himself. It was very fresh and looked awesome. I had a German dish which I can't spell, it was spetlze I think which is a soft noodle with a mushroom and cream sauce with beef- fabulous! My husband had a fish dish which was beautiful. The waiters were very helpful and attentive and the house White and red wines were great. We liked it so much we went again on the last night if our holiday- we were there for a week so this place had to be special to warrant 2 visits.
Highly recommended- booking is best.

“excellent food and sevice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

My wife and I booked for the evening 09/10/10 It was a good job that we made a reservation as the restaurant was full.Although people without reservations turned up we we never hasseled or hurried.
The razor shell clams were delicious
The Cote Avila beef just metlted in your mouth perfectly cooked and was carved expertly at our table .We chose an excellent Rioja which was a perfect compliment to the beef.An excellent espresso and Magno brandy finished a perfect meal on just the right note.
An brilliant meal in great surroundings.Highly recommended
