Marbella Dining with a sprinkle of Michelin stardust

The dining options of Marbella are exotic, exceptional and sometimes extravagant. The variety and range of dishes on offer from the selection of international restaurants to be found here provides diners with a choice of the world’s cuisine—appropriately enough for such a cosmopolitan town whose residents share an outgoing view of life.

Marbella diningWhatever your preferences there is an establishment to cater for your taste, whether it be for traditional Andalusian recipes featuring the finest local ingredients or Japanese Sushi using the freshest fish, Argentinean grills or spicy Indian dishes, there is an option of the highest quality available.

With so many fine-dining restaurants in the area there is tremendous competition to provide the best food accompanied by top-class service, and the flagship restaurants in these respects are those that have earned the ultimate stamp of approval—a Michelin star.

Marbella has four eateries that have achieved the honour in 2016, and here we give a brief guide to where you can sample food of the highest standards right on your doorstep.

Top rated Dani García
The most famous of the Michelin recommended restaurants in Marbella is to be found within the grounds of the Puente Romano Hotel at the heart of the glamorous Golden Mile. One of the best-known chefs in Spain—Dani García presides over the restaurant bearing his name, serving imaginative dishes created with flair and the finest ingredients. Set within the resort’s Plaza Village and surrounded by tropical gardens, it is a special location in which to sample truly special food. The quality of the dishes, faultless service and classy décor has earned this restaurant two stars. Next door, is García’s second eatery—BIBO—which has been awarded a ‘Bib Gourmand’ for very good value.

Messina is the new face on the block
2016 may still be young, but it is already a year to remember for Messina after it was awarded a star in this year’s Michelin guide. Not only did the anonymous inspectors love the food—two tasting menus offer the opportunity to sample a variety of dishes—but they were impressed by the contemporary décor and fun atmosphere of this eatery, which is located on Avenida Severo Achoa.

Skina: Small but perfectly formed
Not far away, this time in the heart of Marbella’s old town, is Skina. It may be small, but for the inspectors it is perfectly formed, creating an attractive and intimate setting to enjoy the cuisine, which is dedicated to “showcasing meticulous technique and the highest quality ingredients,” according to the guide. It too boasts one star.

El Lago MarbellaEl Lago for quality local food
The fourth of Marbella’s Michelin starred restaurants is El Lago—tucked away at the clubhouse of Greenlife Golf in the leafy residential area of Elviria. Here Ronda born chef Diego del Río uses his knowledge of Andalusian cuisine and ingredients to great effect in creating dishes with a local flavour. The inspectors, who it goes without saying were impressed by the food, were particularly taken by the setting, saying: “El Lago’s standout feature is its location on a relaxing golf course opposite a man-made lake.”

These four spectacular restaurants lead the way when it comes to fine dining in Marbella, and are excellent examples of the upmarket lifestyle available in the town. Should you be considering buying a villa or apartment in the area please contact us—we can help advise you of your best options.
