We came to this restaurant based on the Trip Advisor reviews. They were spot on. It is an intimate, pleasant restaurant, one story above Orange Square. The food was excellent and the service was attentive and professional. We came in the off season, and they squeezed us in without a reservation (but I wouldn't recommend it!) for dinner - it seats about 20.

The seafood salad appetizer was fresh and just the right temperature.

The roast wild bream was excellent with fantastic presentation.

The rabbit stew was really braised rabbit in a sauce, which was tender and very flavorful.

It is worth planning for in advance.

We were unaware of this Restaurant's high rating, we just liked its look above an Art Gallery. We booked a table for 4 an hour before we ate, in case it got busy, it did [Sunday]. The food was superb, a cazuela of Fish, good desserts a good meal in Central Marbella. Only complaint....the meal was served too quickly and we were in no hurry, we took an hour before ordering dessert!

This is a small charming restaurant, with friendly attentive staff. The menu is limited but what we had was wonderful, the scallops and the quail. Great value and a lovely dinning experience.

This is a small but thoroughly delightful restaurant tucked in the corner of Orange Square. In season you'll have to negotiate your way through the tables of adjacent restaurants, but it will be well worth the effort! We visited twice during our stay in Marbella in February and on both occasions the food was well present and absolutely delicious. Nancy runs the front of house with two very attentive and efficient helpers, and her husband Paco ensures the food is prepared to perfection. As you get into the season I would recommend you make a reservation as the intention is always to limit the numbers dining in order to ensure the quality remains of the highest order. Definitely one to visit.

Everything about this little hidden gem was excellent. Lovely clean restaurant, friendly welcoming staff. The food is excellent. My partner said the cheesecake is the best he has ever had. His steak was cooked to perfection as was my sea bass, worth every penny of the 87 Euro bill.
