Marbella--Restaurants

Jump to last reply

Any recommendations for restaurants in Marbella. We will be there for a week, and we are looking for some good food and fun....

    Shelly,
    For Italian, you might enjoy "Villa Tiberio", to the west of Marbella, near the Marbella Club Hotel. It's only open for dinner. They serve excellent pastas and nice tiramisu-moderately priced to boot.
    In downtown Marbella, near the Puerto Deportivo, you can have great tapas at the bar of Marbella's most reknowned seafood eatery, "Santiago". This is the only place in town that I can recommend from personal experience.
    For non stop fun until the early morning hours (I've only been in spring/summer-may be quite dead in winter), I'd head straight to the tony yacht harbor of Puerto Banus where the locals go at night to play (and play and play...). There you'll find bars (Sinatra Bar), pubs, cafes (News Cafe), night clubs and nice seaside restaurants in all price ranges with alfresco dining overlooking the port, the fancy yachts and the Rolls (vicarious pleasures). We like La Taberna del Alabardero for dinner, but you'll have dozens of choices.
    For dancing there's the disco in the Hotel Puente Romano (used to be called Regine's, then Olivia Valere, but it might be "Nell's" now (?), and another popular one in the Hotel Don Carlos.
    Hope others can give you more recs. for Marbella proper. A week in Marbella sounds like a great time. Have fun!

    For a final splurge, and to see how the Marbella "jet set" in-crowd lives, take a taxi up past the Mosque to the ultra chic "La Meridiana" in a tranquil garden setting. There's great people watching (and lots of air kissing) on the terrace and a piano bar that gets quite lively after midnight (during season), and the cuisine is considered by many critics and foodies as the best on the Costa del Sol. This comes at a price, though-I would count on $50 per person. But you can soak in the atmosphere just as well by ordering just one drink at the adjacent La Notte bar.
