Recently visited this place with a friend. Wasn't impressed at all. White wine tasted like vinegar. Only place we visited that didn't ask you if you wanted to try wine first. Meals were also not very good. Chips were very salty and I have a dislike of anywhere that salts your food for you. It was so salty I couldn't... More

Kristin greets you, Kristin serves you, and you will go back to passe to have breakfast with her. The place enjoys a lovely shop front on the passe overlooking the sea and the beach. The food is fresh and yummy. It's one of the few best restaurants on the beach front.

Lovely restaurant great atmosphere and great food. We had the fish and the beef goulash which were both fabulous and washed down with some great German beer. Out host Ava was so kind and helpful that we went back twice over the week's holidays.

I recently spent a week in Marbella with two friends and, in a typically tourist fashion, we explored the area each night to find different places to have dinner. We had the great fortune of coming across kristins restaurant one night as we were walking down by the beach. From the moment we walked inside, it was very clear what... More

Came across Kristin's while strolling along the coastal path in Marbella late in the evening. If a garden gnome in front if the restaurant is no indication of who the owners are, we wouldn't know what is. Food was great, freshly prepared, we had the fish fillet and the beef goulash, both cooked to perfection by the chef. Chatted to... More

We were staying a couple of nights at the Gran Melia Don Pepe in Malaga and so decided to venture out along the front in search of a restaurant for the evening. A short walk later and we came across a small cluster of restaurants. We decided to give Kristen a try, partly because it looked popular and also it... More

A very friendly restaurant with an excellent choice of menu. It is owned and run by a charming German couple who speak several languages including excellent English. If it's very busy you might have to wait for chef to prepare your meal but it will be worth it so order a beer and enjoy the ambience. We always rsuh here... More

Nice setting amongst the touristic restaurants on the beach promenade. We had a tomato salad to start that looked great but had no taste due to the quality of the tomatoes. The next course was a Wienerschnitzel which was very tasty and of good quality. The winelist had two white wines and two red wines on it both the sort... More

Small cafe/restaurant on the sea front. Service by the owners is friendly and helpful. Extensive snack or full dinner menu and food is home made and well cooked. An excellent standby when there is nothing planned.

We have been going to Marbella for many years but had never eaten here until this year, when friends suggested that we had missed a very good restaurant. Well they were right! It is a small restaurant on the marble promenade run by a German couple who could not have been more hospitable. The food was very good and, with... More
