BOULEVARD PRÍNCIPE ALFONSO VON HOHENLOHE, 29602 MARBELLA

MICHELIN Guide 2019 opinion

Bib Gourmand: good quality, good value cooking: ≤ £28 / 40 €

‘Bibs’ are awarded for simple yet skilful cooking for under £28 or €40. This bistro with a hint of Andalucia is informal, colourful and fun! Discover the cooking of award-winning chef Dani García at its most uninhibited. This is thanks to a concept designed for sharing, and a fusion of techniques, styles and ingredients of the utmost quality.

EXTRA: Luxury Marbella Restaurant

Although not featured in the 2019 Michelin guide, but definitely worth a try, is restaurant Tahini. The restaurant is one of the best in Marbella for sushi and the views from the terrace are simply fantastic (day or night). Very romantic restaurant and also good for families or large groups. If you would only have one single sentence to describe this restaurant, it would be Sushi on the beach. In Marbella.

Well, that is actually two, but who cares? The food is delicious, the location superb. Did we already mention that Tahini is open for lunch and dinner? You find this luxury hotspot near Hotel Gran Meliá Don Pepe, on Calle de José Meliá in Marbella.

From Cilo Marbella, we say Bon Appétit or as they say in Spain, Buen Provecho!
