We knew there used to be a cafe here and decided to pop in for lunch. Very pleasantly surprised to see it now. Interesting menu, good service and delicious food at a reasonable price. (Generous portions too.) Discovered that they have a live music jam...session on Friday and Saturday nights so planning to return soon. Well worth a visit.More

Fantastic and unique place, away from crowded city center but yet so close. Easy parking, fantastic ambient, delicious food, home made craft beers and outstanding service!

Feeling that they do you a favor serving you in a bar when we are 20 people. I never experienced this situation until I came to this place. Unpleasant waiters. Bad service. Very expensive. Never to return.

Good food and fast service. However one of the waiters was loud and used a few and unnecessary swear words when speaking to the other waiter.

Where to start. Walking into the restaurant one is immediately struck with a relaxed airy atmosphere full of energy. In the corner sits the drum kit and mics for bands on open mic afternoons and nights surrounded by social distanced wooden tables making you feel...at home. Situated in a very large conservatory small birds fly amongst the trees and kids can run around without anyone taking notice. Then there´s the food. My favs to name a few are the tender smokey ribs and the Thai gambas pil pil - both SO much better than you will get anywhere else IMO. The restaurant also brews its own delicious craft beers adding to this unique locale. Excellent pricing rounds off the perfect afternoon or evening with friends and family. If you are in the Marbella area then definitely do not give it a miss.More

So, while killing time on social media, I came across a post shared by a friend of a friend’s cousin that was liked by another friend of mine saying that Cat’s Kitchen had changed chef recently and that they had now a lunchtime meal deal...going on during the week. I had to go and see this for myself. The usual meal deals here (menú del día for all you locals out there) are usually only found in local places and consist of a starter, main, a drink and dessert or coffee for around €9 to €12. The dishes served at these places are usually ones that can be produced in huge batches and vary in quality, with a lot of places opting for quantity over quality but then again, your mileage may vary depending on where you go. Anyways I saw the offer of a starter, main course, drink and dessert for €12.50 and figured I needed to try it as they’re very local to me and as knowledge is power, this played to my ambition of being the most powerful person in my neighbourhood. The choices seem to vary from week to week and by the looks of things seems to be dictated by whatever ingredients they have left by the end of the previous week. Smart. The choices I had on offer were quite fancy compared to the usual simpler options found elsewhere so I was a bit skeptical considering the price point. Would the portions be tiny? Would the food be below par? Would the dish be tiny and below par? I turned up and saw that the clientele were predominantly the senior citizens. I breathed a sigh of relief because these elderly folks love a meal deal where they can take the leftovers home with them to get another three meals out of them and so I knew the portions weren’t going to be stingy. I placed my order and while the food came out at a normal á la carte pace rather than the usual menu del día speed, I wasn’t disappointed as the quality was definitely on point. Great value for money overall. Parking hasn’t changed and is pretty ample just outside the venue. The brewed on-site craft beers are still there and the place is still inside a garden centre. The restaurant is now adapted to comply with COVID measures and as a downside, I had to wait for my napkin to be brought to me while I waited at the table looking like I had just slaughtered an animal with my bare hands (well I did also have some ribs so technically it’s not far off). I miss being able to just get napkins and condiments when I felt like. One downside for me is that the chicken tenders seem to have been taken off the á la carte menu. I’m not sure words can express the disappointment I feel about that decision. It paired so well with their Tarifa beer. To summarise, if you want a menú del día that’s different to the usual offering this place provides a more than reasonably priced alternative without skimping on quality. I’m not sure how they’re making money selling the meal at €12.50 but to this I will repeat what I said to the woman who insisted I was the father of her child despite a negative paternity test - that’s not my problem.More

These guys are killing COVID with Rock Music Jams on Saturday and Sunday, we can't wait for Friday nights to come back!! Thank you so much for making our lives just a little more happy during these ridiculous lockdowns. If you have a doubt about...this restaurant/brewery just go any Saturday or Sunday and get ready for a shock....by far the busiest place in Estepona.... Why?? the food is awesome and the craft beer rivals the best of the best. The staff can be a little slow sometimes and the owners tend to be with the customers chatting away but that kind of adds to the atmosphere and to be honest is a big reason we go back, feels like a home away from home. The Sunday roast is one of the best, sit by the fire have a beer and listen to the band and other locals blast out some great tunes. A must try!More

We were here last Saturday and we had one of the best evenings we can remember! What a cheerful atmosphere and what a great live jam session on stage! So very much needed in these times of curfews and restrictions... Definitely a place that will...make you enjoy not only the food, but the live music too surrounded by all that luscious greenery. Random people having lunch would jump to the stage and either play an instrument or amaze the rest of us with their vocals! I was very pleased to see all the staff wearing their mask at all times and the place was very clean. We all enjoyed our time there very much and a note on the food: You should not miss their Chuletón... the meat will melt in your mouth, and you won't want to share. The curry was also delicious, certainly the chef is worth praising. It was just the perfect place, perfect atmosphere and perfect meal. Well done, will be coming here regularly.More
