We had a tasting menue, and that was no good. No taste, no colour, no vegetables, poor presented. Out of 14 dishes, one was meat. Bones in two fish dishes. The food on the plane back home tasted better.

We can definitely recommend this one star guide Michelin restaurant. Nice wine list. Lovely service from all the staff. Take their tasting menu with wine pairing. A lot of surprises.

We had the taster menu, which was very very disappointing It was hardly food only somebody experimenting with the ingredients, it was almost inedible. We could not believe it was a Michelin star restaurant. We had one bottle of house wine, two bottles of water, our bill was 379 euros for four people. This meal was a celebration for a... More

This is a 1star Michelin restaurant in Marbella right beside the Amare Beach Hotel where we were staying. The restaurant has both a tasting menu and an a la carte. The chef sent out some little appetisers before our food came. My scallops starter and steak main course were cooked to perfection and served so beautifully. Service is a bit... More

A Michelin experience of magnitude. Beautiful surroundings, wonderful service, sublime wine list. Based on Argentinian cooking techniques (do not think it's meat on meat, because it's not - although the Entrecote main was to die for) Little plates of amuse bouche treats, one after the other. Starters and mains that are unique in their plating, their construction and sublime in... More

I wished I could go their every day: all of their plates have a spectacular taste and the kitchen is so creative that half of the world ends up during your dinner. What a joy! And their service is alike: top! We will definitely come back for more surprises.

Tasting menu was a delight and loved all the crockery. Staff great and very relaxing atmosphere. Great night out for a special occasion and for foodies. Wine selection was amazing too but the highlight for me was the desserts..... To die for.

This restaurant is a must for foodies. We went for the smaller tasting menu and they were quite happy to replace the two desserts, which we do not eat very often, with two savoury alternatives. The first two courses were one small mouthful each and were just OK but from then on everything was very good indeed particularly the main... More
