We decided to go to this restaurant after reading great reviews - and we were not disappointed. Yes the menu is a bit pricey but the food is not your standard Orange Square (where it is situated) fayre. By chance we were given a table in one of the balconies overlooking the square and if you are a couple, I'd... More

Cute restaurant in a romantic spot, we sat out on the balcony sipping our wine while people watching and taking in the free live music entertainment from down stairs... Then the food came out and it was amazing! We enjoyed our meals do much and would highly recommend. Only slight downfall was the desert, we were excited to see the... More

I don't usually do trip advisor reviews - in fact this is my first ever! However, the evening spent at Paco Jimenz was that good I felt I had to give it the credit it deserves. This was my first time in Marbella / Puerto banus with my girlfriend and because of that we where unsure where to eat during... More

This was our second visit and surpassed our first. This is the real deal. The staff are genuinely friendly and very knowledgeable. The food is excellent. I had a prawn cocktail and chicken supreme while partner had langoustines and veal. There is no bad choice on the menu I feel. The location is perfect and if you can (it's a... More

Without a doubt the best food in Marbella and one of the best meals I've ever had! The quality of the food was amazing! The restaurant is inside but there are two small tables on the balcony so reserve in advance to get a good view of Old Town Marbella. The service was extremely good. The best service I've ever...

Restaurant is excellently located in the Orange Square in Marbella's Old Town. Food was very tasty with original plating. Service was also impeccable. We visited this restaurant in July, and they have no air condition inside, so it can get very warm. Also, we did find it a little over-priced overall. However, the overall experience was very pleasant, and would... More

We spent a beautiful evening in this special restaurant which based above an art gallery on a corner of Orange Square. The atmosphere is lovely and the service is wonderful. The special of the day was a whole monkfish grilled beautifully, it was so fresh we talked about it in the way home! Nancy is the owner, her husband is... More

This small family owned restaurant must be the hidden gem of Marbella old town. Seating max 25 guest in this cozy apartment overlooking the Plaza de los Naranjos. Quiet and relaxed athmosphere with superb food and service (probably the closest you get to gourmet dining at the Costa del Sol). Our family had the Monk fish, Confit the canard, and... More

Good food and great service. Also a very "cozy" restaurant over all. Not expensive. Recommended as a normal dinner visit.

Lovely spot in orange square. Came with a few friends and there were no disappointed faces! Would love to come back soon and try the other dishes!
