the food here is excellent, delicious and well prepared and presented. staff are so friendly and attentive. when busy it can take them quite a while to bring the orders out but im sure that this is merely due to them preparing everything from scratch. it is quite pricey but there is a 3 course menu for €32 which is well worth it. the fillet of beef was so juicy and tender, the deserts selection great, my only minor niggle would be that i would like a choice of potatoes with my meat as the roast potatoes they served were not to my preference, although delicious i would have liked a choice. other than that everything was excellent

We have visited this excellent restaurant some 20 times since its opening and have never been disappointed despite our ever rising expectations. The quality of the food prepared by Renee and his assistants in the kitchen has always been just outstanding. Difficult to choose the best courses, they all are so delicious and we have tasted almost everyting on the menu. Add to this the excellent athmosphere created by the always friendly, smiling and smoothly moving Sabine and Tola in the restaurant room and you get the overall asssesment : simply a place worth visiting.
The prices too are very reasonable given the high quality of everything.

The food is unlike anything else you find in the Marbella area, and at a similar price to other local restaurants, it really is worth making the journey . We have been many times over the last 3 or 4 years and have never been disappointed . We took a friend on Friday who has lived on the Costa del Sol for 7 years, and she said it was the best meal she had ever had in Spain . Although the style of cooking is modern, the portions are reasonable and I have never left there feeling peckish . The service is friendly but not overpowering and the ambiance good. However the main rreason for going,without a doubt ,is the food .

At this smoothly run restaurant with a sophisticated feel. Unobtrusive service from multi lingual team in the Nueva Andalusia area of Marbella(T.A. Note) and with easier parking than many will ensure we keep returning. Last nights meal of the ravioli with truffle sauce and glazed Parmesan followed by beef cheeks produced intense flavours with the accompanying sauces being perfectly in balance. The other dishes which I did not try received positive comments and the house Ribera de Duero was a bargain at 16e. Not a table spare so for reviewers who comment on its location, remember El Bulli.
