Fodor's Expert Review Messina

$$$$ Marbella Mediterranean

Between the casco antiguo and the seafront, this innovative restaurant has an unpromising plain exterior, but forge ahead: the interior's chocolate browns and deep reds make for cozy surroundings for a quiet dinner from chef Mauricio Giovanni, who renewed his Michelin star in 2018. The menu has an Italian slant, with more than a sprinkling of Spanish cuisine in its unusual fusion dishes. Try the lightly pickled red snapper or the Málaga roast kid goat with roasted French onions. Homemade pasta also features. Finish off with caramelized pineapple sorbet with red pepper and pisco sour. Tasting menus are also available (€67 and €85).
