Description: Hermosa is a Southern Californian style bistro & grill that serves progressive international cuisine. We prepare our dishes using local seasonal and sustainable produce where possible and our menus will often change to accommodate the availability of such ingredients. Our dishes typically fuse the flavors of the old and new world from Tuscany to the Pacific Rim and feature modern interpretations of traditional European, American and Asian dishes. Our menu also features a unique dining experience, 'The Grill', which enables you to comfortably stray from the confines of a traditional A la carte and design a dish that suits you. All of our dishes are freshly prepared and cooked to order, we like to serve fresh food, not fast food. Our setting is relaxed and comfortable. Low key and romantic. We like to call it 'fine-casual' dining.

“Highly recommend, diverse menu!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Amazing experience, would recommend to anyone visiting Marbella! Menu offers a unique dining experience. Every dish and side was impeccably prepared! Excellent service, very attentive. Owner Alex was also our waiter, extremely friendly and welcoming. Asparagus and goat cheese risotto, hermosa salad, salmon w/ succotash -- mac&cheese side was some of the best we've ever had. Visit to the restaurant was a highlight of our vacation!

“Chilled atmosphere”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Just back from a great meal here. Varied and interesting menu, plenty of choices for all 3 courses. I was in a group of 4 who all chose differently: all choices were excellent. The owner/ waiter was very informative and attentive throughout, without being a nuisance. Food was all of excellent quality and well prepared. The atmosphere was relaxing (although it wasn't full, v quiet for a wet Sunday eve). Great background music, very chilled. Would recommend it and will go again.

Many thanks for your review. Indeed it was a very blustery, very wet and very cold Sunday evening but we're glad you had a great time with us and enjoyed yourselves. If you require any information on the music we play at Hermosa then just drop us an email via our website and we'll be happy to pass on the information to you.

“Good food, poor ambience”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We visited here after reading the reviews and agree the food is very good. Nice to have different items on menu. But the whole experience was spoiled - the restaurant was really cold and as we walked in - there were three or four tables occupied it was so quiet and unwelcoming. It felt as if we had walked into an argument there was such a strange atmosphere. Xmas music was eventually played but it made us realise that atmosphere and ambience means so much when you are dining out even when the food doesnt disappoint. It wasnt cheap either. Waiter was efficent but lacked any warmth and didnt create an atmosphere where we felt welcome. We wouldnt go again, there are places so much better. Also be warned VAT is added on the bill but in fairness it did say on the menu but it makes the final bill much more than the prices displayed.

Many thanks for taking the time to leave your review. Although we are glad you enjoyed your food we are sad to hear that the atmosphere and temperature of the restaurant was not to your liking. Hermosa is a small intimate fine dining restaurant that seats about 40 people in the winter. I believe that you dined with us in mid to late December (as we closed for 5 weeks on 1st January 2013) Apart from Christmas week and New Years Eve this is the low season in Southern Spain and as such it can be rather quiet. It can also be rather chilly in the evening. The restaurant is temperature controlled but obviously some customers may feel too hot, some may feel too cold. If we are made aware of this at the time we can easily adjust the temperature to suit. Indeed, I.V.A (Spanish V.A.T of 10%) is added onto the final bill at Hermosa and this is clearly stated on the menu. This is common practice in Spain, some restaurants and bars add IVA on at the end whilst others include it in the price - it really depends on how the business is set up (Ltd company, Partnership or Sole trader). Either way it is a tax that must be charged by the restaurant and paid by the customer. Many restaurants on the coast also have a 'cover charge' which can range from €1.00 - 3.00 per person which is also added to the final bill, however at Hermosa we do not have such a cover charge.

“A great change from the sameolds”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Visited Hermosa the night before New Years Eve and the 4 of us all thought this was a great restaurant. First off the place is Contemporary with lots of great little art touches. Smart but not up itself. Service on the night we went was excellent, alternative but not in your face and happy to give advice on the menu and wines. All the food we had was excellent, served and presented with nice little twists. There are a number of good restaurants in the area but they tend to look and feel the same, not all bad we go to them as well, but this is different and it feels more like you are going out for an occasion rather than that family restaurant or rustic feel. We didn't think it was expensive especially given the quality of the meal, wine and ambiance. Please open a sister restaurant in Mijas, we stay there once a year and boy does it need a restaurant like this.
