We were on holiday for our daughters 18th birthday on Christmas Day, and we're having cocktails at the very nice bar next door and asked what food they served, the owner recommended tapas from the restaurant next door, which was newly opened and they had eaten there the previous night. The tapas were heavenly, and we returned again to the... More

Had an excellent meal in La Marmita last week. The main reason we chose the restaurant was I used to work with Nick, one of the owners about 10 years ago, and noticed on Facebook whilst I was on holiday that the restaurant was a few miles away from where I was staying in Benaldamena. But on arrival was pleased... More

Ordered Tapas on our first night here and have returned nearly every night, service, wine, food can not be matched. Twisted tapas at La Marmita should not be missed and definitely tried. Perfect for any occasion.

Hidden between many typical beachfront restaurant lies La Marmita. It is easy to miss and the relatively basic decor belies the high quality of the food served. For a first visit it is highly recommended to let the jovial front-of-house Nick guide you on the choice of stunning and original tapas, which live upto the full name of the restaurant-... More

This is one of the best restaurants and would totally recommend a visit. We had the twisted tapas and it was absolutely lovely so much so we ordered 3 more. We then ordered the sweet tapas which was absolutely amazing. Nick and Simon make you feel really welcome. Nick recommended really good wine both the white and the red at... More

This unprepossessing tapas bar at the Western end of The Strip is a totally amazing food experience. Simon, Nick and Lee have taken the Spanish National dish of Tapas and pushed the presentation and quality to a whole new level. The first 5 Tapas come on a long presentation platter and included miniature version of fish and chips, unbelieveable depth... More

love love love this restaurant. Not only is the 'twisted tapas' the best spin on tapas that we have had but the owners Nick and Simon were the best hosts. We discovered this lovely restaurant by accident and it turned out to be the best accident ever. We ended up returning to the restaurant 3 times. The hosts Nick and... More
