“Delicious Tapas!”
Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

Amazing food, good service and a nice atmosphere. They have a good selection of wine and cava.

Must haves are the cherry gazpacho, and the ox burger. We always manage to find and try something new every time.

Been going here for a long time and will continue to come back. In the high season it gets busy so queues are normal.

“Nothing special, dissapointing”
Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

You expect some good food but you get just average st the best. Service not good either, just slow.

Got served the "michelin dishes" but it doesnt live up to michelin level at al. No flavours!

Also got served water in a dirty waterglass

I will not visit again.

“Tapas at its best”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

I am a regular visitor to Marbella as I have family living in Southern Spain. La Moraga is simply one of the finest high end tapas eateries in Marbella (which is not famous for fine dining).

The choice of dishes are endless. The quality of food superb and the flavours exceptional. It's an ideal lunch or dinner venue and perfect for those who love to share food.

Great Champagne/Cava choices, good service.

You cannot book and the queues can be long. Limited opening hours. But worth it.

“Excellent modern restaurant but small portions”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

This is an excellent modern restaurant which is very popular which means that sometimes you have to queue for a seat. We had a seat at the bar for lunch where the service was excellent. The food was rather expensive for the size of portion but was of good quality. Will definitely return.

“Don't know what happened to it..”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We went there a few days ago with the family as we used to LOVE this restaurant and its concept. and we were totally disappointed! Never again!!! to start with, they built a very nice terrace, but don't make any use out of it, not even for a bunch of waiting people who have to sit in the back of the restaurant staring at other clients making those having a meal feel awkward.
Now, the restaurant looks worn out, it really needs a change of some tables, chairs, cutlery, etc.
The food is ok but not as conceptual and exceptional as before, they have changed a few things and not for better.
We ordered chocolate fondant as a dessert and some coffee… when we cut the fondant it was rock hard, never mind the absence of liquid chocolate inside. the coffee they've got now is one of the cheapest you can get for the restaurant, the cup doesn't even match the plate and you can get a better coffee in the cheap spanish bars (and we are talking about supposively top class restaurant).
And the culmination was the bill… for two with wine we paid 87 euros. My husband gave the waiter 100 and we were waiting for the change for ages, it has never arrived.. we had to go and ask for it… this is not the end.. when they gave it to us it was only 3 euros on a tray.. 10 euros were missing..
to conclude, it USED TO BE GREAT!!! now its just an average worn out venue working just because of its name and location.
