We stoped there after a long walk in the old town. The place is beautifull and in nice location where you can sit outside, relaxing and watching the crowd. The staff was friendly and helpfull, they speak english. The tapas we ordered were fresh and delicious, in companion with excellent cold white whine..what else you can want? The only negative is the fact that they do not accept credit cards. I definately recomend it!

They have a QR code on the table, leading to an app to call for the waiter or place an order. Technically it works but apparently the message doesn’t reach the waitress. Anyhow, she is far too busy to have time for a gadget. The coffee was nice though.

We have always visited this restaurant when in Marbella and enjoyed it. We came in June and ordered a tuna bagette as always and were told they didn't do it any more.
My daughter and husband had a Ratatouille dish which they said was horrible. I chose to go somewhere else. Surely they could have made what we asked for?

We went for breakfast on our first day and it was good and very handy for where we were staying. We returned on Monday and noticed that the waitress seemed less than enthusiastic but thought no more about it. We returned on Tuesday morning and by then her behaviour was just plain rude. For example we were trying to attract her attention to order an additional 2 coffees. She studiously ignored us for a bit and then when it was clear she'd have to respond to us she actually rolled her eyes and then plastered a sarcastic smile on her face as she said "yes..." Just like a stroppy teen-ager would. We have no idea why. We aren't a high maintenance group of people. We always say please and thank you.. and until then we always left a decent tip. You'd think a café would welcome 7 people eating breakfast there but it would seem not. I therefore cannot recommend it unless you want to try and work out the bizarre and rude behaviour of the waitress.

We always visit here for sangria on our trip, we went last Friday night, and it was busy, luckily we got a outside table, and ordered a jug of sangria and a glass of vino Blanco, whilst it was very nice, I did find that the pricing is just a little too expensive, 16 euro for a jug of sangria is a bit steep, sign of the times in the old town, tourism attracts higher prices.

We will be back again in September, however I wouldn't go every night when there is far too much competition and better prices around Marbella centro.
