We went there as it was recommended by friends. We arrived and there were only two additional guests. We ordered the Dorade in salt and a salat to start with. Staff are extremely friendly and supportive. The salat was very good and we enjoyed it! The fish arrived and it was prepared very good in front of us. We started... More

My partner and I arrived on an overcast Saturday afternoon, 5th November, about 13h00. The place was almost entirely deserted with the exception of several members of staff milling around. The Hostess met us at the door, (we had waited several minutes) and showed us to a table. I had initially asked to be seated at a table of our... More

We've been before with friends and the quality and consistency remains. Food is a real mix of European modern cuisine. We had gnocchi with prawns and Sea Bass. Both excellent. The service is polite and efficient and Trocadero have a seriously good wine list and tasting room. We sat outside in a lovely setting close to the beach. The inside... More

I have had lunch and dinner here on several occasions and decided to hold my birthday dinner there. We had a nice table and the service was good. However several or my guests sent their food back either because it was cold (tuna) or the not cooked correctly (Thai sea bass). It's a great venue and I would go back

We asked our hotel to recommend a beachside restaurant for dinner. They recommended and booked Trocadero Arena. I then looked at reviews on Tripadvisor and found they were very mixed. It was therefore with apprehension that we arrived at Trocadero Arena last night. We were given the choice of inside or outside dining. We chose outside and were given a... More

You're paying for the ambience here. It has a nice feel when you're sitting outside enjoying the sea breeze. But the food is very expensive and is of a poor quality. Mostly tasteless and uninspired. If you've got plenty of money to waste then you might not care, since you're part of the glamorous set. But there are far better... More

Pictures speak by their own to describe the place. Recommended for a beach day followed by a dinner and some drinks all in the same place. One of the most popular sites in Marbella nowadays. Suitable for kids, as they can play in the beach while adults enjoy dinner or drinks. Cocktails menu quite complete with nice set up of... More

Been here before. Really poor restaurant. Positives ? Really pretty Dining space. African themed. Negatives ? Service is atrocious. You could easily sit and get ignored for half an hour or more. Loads of staff around not doing anything. Bizarre. Food poor and so overpriced. Could not recommend.

Nice atmosphere, the Parking is crowded full, but once you in its a good Beach Club. The style is cool, japanese restaurant was good. Be aware that you will have a stiffed Bill once you finished your Day. But def worth a visit!
