Costa del Sol and Costa de Almería Restaurants




Calima Review

Avant-garde celebrity chef Dani Garcia uses scientific techniques to transform traditional ingredients into innovatively textured, flavored, and visually stunning dishes at his much-lauded two Michelin-star restaurant, where diners can choose between the à la carte and prix-fixe menus (€125). Liquid nitrogen, for instance, is used to maximize the flavors in dishes such as the false tomato. Other signature offerings include foie gras with a creamy slice of Ronda goat cheese, roast sea bass and curried mackerel. Finish off with the chef's favorite dessert, Luna de Marbella (Marbella Moon), a concoction of white chocolate, vanilla and tangerine. The space manages to be Zen minimalist, yet warm and intimate, with beautiful panoramic sea views and the entire kitchen before diners' eyes.
