“Excellent value restaurant.”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Visited this restaurant for the Sunday lunch, four adults and two babies. Excellent value, three courses for 12.50 euros and they had a two for one offer on making the bill exceptionally cheap. Food was excellent. I had onion soup which had fresh rosemary in it, roast chicken with veg and stuffing, inc cauliflower cheese followed by chocolate fudge cake and cream. The service was friendly and prompt, absolutely superb.
Only gripe would be that there are no baby changing facilities. Had to change baby on the floor. There is room in the ladies for a pull-down one so not sure why they don't have one. Highchairs and kids menu available. Nice decor. Can sit in or out. they have two sittings for sunday lunch. Overall, a really nice family restaurant, would definitely go again.

“great value sunday lunch”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Just been back to the area for a break and visited this bar a couple of times and went for Sunday lunch... It's advertised at 3 course lunch for €9.95, well thats not too bad eh, but because things are so quiet and competitive in Spain right now they are doing a 2 for 1...... unbelievably 2 of you eat a 3 course meal for €9.95, and i have to say, it was not a tiny little portioned meal to compensate for the small amount of money the bar is making on it.... nice bruschetta to start with and an oxtail soup, roast beef and roast beef with lots of veggies on the side and lovely apple crumble for me and hot cherries and ice cream for herself....now i can only assume they do this deal hoping that customers will buy drinks as they cant make money on the food and this is proven by the fact that we were part of the 2nd sitting, so they had around 140 people in for lunch (and drinks)
All the bars and restaurants are really struggling in spain so it was great to see lo marabu packed out, they are certainly making the effort to try and sustain their business.
The service is always fantastic and very friendly in this bar so pop in if your in the area.

“Great for lunchtimes”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Nice restaurant with loads of outside seating, busy at night but best at lunchtime for the gourmet burgers and sandwiches, the service can be very slow though unfortunately and for some strange reason even as regulars you cannot have a tab in the evening.

Some home made chips would be good as well!!

“Lo Marabu,Horrible cold food!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We have used this restaurant regularly for the past year and it would be a fair comment to say we will never go back there.
On our last visit we went for the curry night,the place was quite busy and we were informed there was a 30 minute wait,no problem as we had plenty of time.
When our food was taken to our table both curries were still cold but the side order of Bombay potatoes were steaming hot, We asked the waitress if it was possible to take the food back and heat it up, she took both curries back.
When the food arrived back at the table it was now warm not hot as you expect but the worst part was when you cut the chicken open it looked grey and to be perfectly honest disgusting,Needles to say we did not eat it, My wife complained and was given the answer “Well no one else has complained”and the woman at the next table said that they had complained about their food earlier in the evening.
in 12 months of using this restaurant I would say the standard of service and the quality of food has went drastically downhill.the only good thing I can now say about this place is that it has free Wi Fi
