Very zen, and nouvel cuisine. and charming restaurant. Service fantastic. Staff always on hand. My husband wanted to exchange an item on the deguststion menu, and they did so....food delicious especially the goat. Now that I have "sampled" their food, I will go back for the shrimp entree and goat main course....ummmmm.....

Thank you for another fantastic evening. Your menu and wine list is truly something special. Full of surprises. And even with the star you manage to keep the warm ambience that makes us feel truly welcome and relaxed.

Things are evolving in Marbella: another sophisticated restaurant very different from the usual touristy places one is accustomed to. The Michelin star is absolutely justified. The tastes and textures presented make for a very enjoyable evening. Particularly suitable if the weather does not necessarily dictate sitting outdoors.

If you haven't visited Messina in Marbella you have really missed out! It is suburb in all ways. The food is outstanding in quality, inventiveness, and good value for money, the service is always courteous and informative. I couldn't recommend it enough! Go for the tasting menu with pairing wines...fabulous.

Disappointed this year - pointed out the goat had a lot of small bones in it - not pleasant. They were obviously not bothered. Also on asking for the bill - had to ask at least three times - but they seemed far to busy with their regular customers to be bothered about anyone else. This was our 3rd trip... More
