“ONE OF THE CONSTANTLY BEST RESTAURANTS IN MARBELLA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2012

Our family & friends have been visiting this restaurant about 10-12 times a year since it first opened about 8 years ago, we have never had a bad meal. The main point to mention is the general ambience & relaxing atmosphere plus the pleasant interior. The happy, professional staff & the ever present boss Lorenzo who knows the restaurant business inside out are there to always ensure you are made most welcome. The food although Italian based also includes daily specials the covers all aspects of top quality food & choice at very reasonable prices. Special mention must be his daily Lobster, local Fish & Lamb dishes, genuine Michelin star standard but much better proportions & at half the price. Wine list is good & the reasonable house wines are most pleasant & great value. When the bill comes you will not be shocked unlike some of Marbellas top restaurants, a fantastic meal with wine & drinks come to about 80€ for 2, plus Lorenzo's huge measures of complimentary liqueurs. Easy to find if you just ask anybody where to find the best & most classy cocktail bar in San Pedro "Pub Charles", its just on the corner opposite & great for a pleasant drink before or after your meal. Parking is a problem anywhere in San Pedro but not impossible as underground parking is nearby & Taxis everywhere. If you want a great night out, the very best quality fresh food, sublime service in stylish subdued surroundings then make the effort & go there you will not regret it & Lorenzo's clients constant repeat business is testament as to what a truly great place this is, they close on Sunday & Monday & probably good to book. In the warmer evenings the outside open front terrace is delightful & a very romantic setting, if you have children they do superb special menus & low prices but they do like children to behave. We believe that Caruso is now becoming a firm fixture to guaranteed fine dining in the San Pedro / Puerto Banus area.

“Top Italian Cuisine in San Pedro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2011

Excellent Italian cuisine with superb service. From A to Z the mastery is noticeable into the tiniest detail. Brilliant performance and presentation for a nice diner out. Good value for money. A restaurant to be revisited. Great variety of dishes for all courses. Highly recommended.

“Stunning food & great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2011

My partner & I went to this restaurant twice on a 3 night break. we had the Minestrone soup which was so tasty and fresh. The lobster fettuccine was gorgeous and the following night we has the stuffed anchovies and fillet steak, amazing. I would say that steak was better than Gaucho and half the price. If you are in the area you must go there. Its opposite pub Charles and ther service is great.
