We were a party of four dining here on a wet evening after a short walk through the old town having been recommended by the very positive reviews we had seen. It is a small and charming dining room with nice views over the square and when the weather allows the balcony must be a very pleasant place to spend... More

The restaurant is located on the 1st floor above an art gallery overlooking the Plaza de Los Naranjos in the old town. We went there with some friends and had a fantastic meal. Definitely one of the best meals we have had in Marbella. The restaurant is small with only covers for 20 people so if you do go make... More

Incredible restaurant! Food, service, atmosphere - all excellent. The food was amazing but honestly the friendly, helpful staff really made our night special. Each member of the team offered a helpful hint to make our dinner perfect. We split the scallops as starter paired with a really nice white wine. My partner had a suckling pig special and I had...

A very nice restaurant located at the Orange square. Located on the 1.st floor it is more authentic and not as touristic as the other restaurants located at the street level.

Visited this restaurant for the first time with friends on a recent trip to Marbella. What a find. The cooking at Paco Jimenez is second to none. Every course - absolutely delicious. Nice interior and friendly efficient staff. Not found a better place to eat in Marbella Old Town yet. Do yourself a favour and pay a visit. Can't wait... More

Our resort recommended this restaurant. It was small, 10-12 tables, on the second floor facing a lovely square in old town Marbella. The best location to dine would be on the balcony overlooking the square. It is very popular, requires a reservation and was not going to give us one because we couldn't provide a working phone number even though... More

This superb small restaurant has now become a regular must whenever we visit Marbella. Ate there on New Year's Eve - lovely friendly atmosphere and excellent food and wines. Also visited in September to celebrate my birthday. You are always made to feel welcome; the service is attentive and knowledgeable. Steaks are always excellent but the sea-food platter we had...

Wow, what a great place. Just had a terrific experience. Beautiful food, great wine, lovely spot and staff were fantastic. What more is there to say. I had the seafood special followed by the suckling pig special. Both beautifully presented and tasted as good as they looked. Would certainly recommend and will definitely be going again.

This restaurant is excellent. The food tasted wonderful and was also in generous portions. Very elegant. The staff were polite and welcoming. If I lived nearby I would go to this restaurant often. Prices are in line with the quality. It isn't a cheap evening out, but it is a fine evening out.

Thank James G
