Visited Jam two days ago, we were left waiting from start to finish. Waited to be seated at a table for 10 minutes even though the place was practically empty. When we were seated,it was another while before we got to order and when our food finally arrived the order was wrong. However the food was decent.The only quick part of the service was receiving the bill!!

One of the best Italian restaurant in Costa del Sol. Although they opened just few years ago, they can make you feel the real italian vibes.
Owners of one of the most iconic and well known Roman restaurant, Emanuele and his family brought to Puerto Banus the real italian recipes, togheter with their cuisine knowledge. it is a food trip, old real and tipical recipes and fusion are well combined in the menu, fron the starters to desserts and handmade cakes.
It is a must go

We as a group of 4 booked a table last night. We booked during the day for 10pm. When we arrived the table was not ready. We waited 20 minutes and even then didn't get the table with swings.

The table was grubby and set for 3 people - even after the 4 of us had waited 20 minutes! We weren't offered a drinks menu while we waited incidentally. The waitresses were so grumpy. Faces like thunder, slamming down drinks. The garlic bread with cheese was awful, totally over priced! It was 3 slices of burnt bread with a spinkle of cheese (tasteless). That was €6.50!!

The mains were ok but again service was slow and if we asked for anything (salt, pepper, parmesan) they huffed or didn't get it for us.

We were so looking forward to eating here but it was clear from the beginning it wasn't going to be a good experience. The staff didn't know who was doing what and they made us feel so umwelcome and uncomfortable. There are so many better places to eat - don't be taken in by the swings!!
