Enjoyed great Paella and succulent rib of beef here on a busy Tuesday evening in Marbella old town. Attentive service and excellent food and wine. There's lots of restaurants but if you are unsure just visit El Cortijo.

Dine here last night 24May17, approx 08:30pm. Food was average. Avoid the paella, three quarters of clams in dish were shut closed, meaning not fresh, clams dead before cooking. Scampi likely in dish was soft and soggy, again signs that it too was not fresh....More
