We had dinner here yesterday and I must say it was very tasty & beautiful decorated on the plate. Initially we thought that the prices were quite expensive but it is very reasonably after seeing how much effort they put on the plate to make it look beautiful & it was delicious food! Everything is house made, including the bread.... More

Just off Orange Square down a relatively quiet street. Lucky we booked as they were turning people away as we arrived. They managed to sort us out a table outside and were very attentive throughout. Food was fabulous, tasty and very well presented. We felt like real VIP's and had a wonderful evening - outside in the middle of October... More

Have visited previously so that it would be nice to see if it was the same high standard. I wasn't disappointed. It is still high quality food with excellent service.

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant, just off Orange Square. It has a loyal and regular clientele who come back season after season. It is a small and intimate restaurant, and the outside tables on a hot evening are enticing. Lawrence is front of house, and is efficient and very friendly, and seems to know everybody. In the...

Excellent service, varied interesting menu, beautifully cooked dinner with first class presentation. Some good wines and all at very reasonable prices, in a great location. We have been visiting Marbella and the surrounding area for over 20 years, this is probably one of the best, if not the best restaurant we've ever found. You will not be disappointed, if you...

This is my 4th visit to Marbella and I have always wanted to eat at Bistro Paloma, however, have never been able to get in. We reserved a table this time in advance for outside and it was everything I had hoped for. Beautiful romantic setting, great food and very professional, friendly staff. We will be returning next year!

We have dined at Bistro Paloma several times. The staff lead by the fabulous maître d' Lawrence and the excellent food is always exceptional. We dined here twice last week and had a fabulous time. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The best place to dine in the old town of Marbella. I will be back soon.

We loved the food here so much we went back the following evening. It was the best food we had in Spain. Every part of the meal was delicious. The olives are the tastiest I have ever eaten and shall be trying to source some now I am back home. Great friendly service, reasonable cost. Can't recommend enough.
