“First class food and service”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

We booked several days before arriving in Marbella and you will need to book in advance as so many people were being turned away on the night, despite the rain and bad weather. The service was top class and the food and wine was brilliant. Try the duck pate starter. Staff were professional, friendly and attentive. I can see why this is high up on Tripadvisor. Will be back on next trip.

“Disappointing meal”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

We have always enjoyed eating at Paloma until we had dinner there with friends which everyone thought was disappointing. One main course we had previously liked was presa Iberica pork (made from special pigs) which was always full of flavour. While it is still called presa Iberica, it now looks completely different and tastes like a cheap cut! The liver was overcooked and unseasoned and served on cold, tasteless mash. Our friends liked their fish courses and we all enjoyed the desserts. The service was friendly as usual.

“Lovely service!”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

This little gem was a pleasure to find! Very welcoming hosts and impressive food made for a very special night. It is very cosy/small and we were sitting right near the kitchen - despite these factors the atmosphere was very calm and relaxed. Although the prices are quite high (but not higher than most good restaurants in Marbella) the food is very much worth it. The hosts clearly know their food very well and seem passionate.

Would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to celebrate a special occasion. Very romantic atmosphere, great service and fantastic food. Would also recommend their Chardonnay - see photo for a picture of the cute label!
