“The temple for seafood and... Football !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Very different of all other restaurants of Marbella, this one is only focused on the qualty of the products they do serve very simply. No attention is given to the decoration which is ... Fantastic ! In ifs genre : Football trophees from everywhere, even rarities for those who like this. This restaurant is simple but simply one of the best and typical restaurant of the area. Not to recommand for a romantic dinner.

“Looks great but avoid avoid avoid!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

We attempted to dine here in sept 2012 having been to the wonderful zozoi the previous night, we spotted it and felt it may be nice to have a nice simple fresh fish dinner. We ordered grilled sole, (asked for no skin, no bone) and were given what the waiter called a "white fish", filled with bones, this was a cutlet of something very much other than sole! When my husband complained the guys tried to play the language barrier. With a small baby, that was our night ruined. Furthermore, the red pepper salad was burned and tasted only of such, and the bread was stale. We paid €13 for our water and the brutal salad and left. We since passed by and overhead another couple say it was the worst meal they have ever has. Avoid! There are loads of great places to eat in Marbella but this aint one of them!

“Top Fish Resturant in old town Marbella”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

We have eaten in this restaurant sevral times but never in the height of summer. We couldn't believe how busy it was! There was still a que at 11.30pm. The food as always was great with a huge choice of very fresh fish although a little over priced. But because it was so busy in there the staff were rushed off there feet and a bit manic. Despite this we had a great meal and enjoyed the atmosphere, we will definatly be returning again.
