Beach Restaurants
So we're the kind of people who love good food and good people and like to support local businesses. We appreciate consistency and tend to stick with the same places and go for that "where everybody knows your name" kind of vibe. So this list is made up of the kinds of places where we usually know the owners and the servers tell us their stories and weekend plans. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do...
Sergio is the proud owner of this gem of a chiringuito (Spanish for Beach Restaurant) located in Costabella. We recommend you make a reservation because what used to be our best kept secret has become everyone's favourite place to eat... And for good reason! A big menu with lots of options to choose from and daily specials, this is the kind of place where you ask Sergio or his son Jesús which fish was caught that morning and they'll recommend away. We usually order a selection of starters depending on how big our group is: Gambas Diavola (shrimps in a spicy tomato sauce); Gambas a la Gorgonzola (shrimps in a gorgonzola sauce); Pimientos de Padrón (grilled green peppers); Calamares; Ensalada Pecorino (Insanely fresh mixed salad with feta cheese); Champiñones a la crema (creamy mushrooms in a creamy bacon sauce), and Berenjenas Fritas (Fried Auberjines). For our mains, we usually order the Pizza with Salami Picante (spicy pepperoni pizza), and the Penne Arrabbiata. Friends have ordered the fish of the day, Risotto and the Solomillo (Fillet Steak). For Desserts, the Tiramisu of course or Rita's choice is always the Neopolitan ice cream (Chocolate, Strawberry & Vanilla). Spanish meals always end with a traditional "copa" or liqueur, like Pacharán for example. Our bill for the two of us including a bottle of house wine usually comes to around €70. As we say in Spanish: ¡Que aproveche! Enjoy!

What is not to love about this place? Arguably one of Marbella's most stunning venues, Trocadero is also the place to go for the best (and prettiest and tastiest) cocktails. It also has a beautiful beach vibe and serves great food too but that's how amazing the cocktails are when everything else takes second place. Tim and I love to go to Trocadero just before sunset, grab a table on the outdoor patio, each with our cocktails in hand and watch Marbella's glorious sunset unfold before us. It's moments like this when everything is just right and you know that Paradise is here at Trocadero Arena. Paradise comes at a price but anything worth having usually does. Cocktails start from: €12 A meal for two with a bottle of wine should set you back approx. €120. As we say in Spanish: ¡Salut! Cheers!

Simbad in Marbesa is a great chiringuito (Spanish for beach restaurant) with a gorgeous setting and decor. The menu, service and ambiance are all excellent and while it's a little pricier than Miguel y Maria for example, it's worth every penny! Every time we've been here, we end up ordering a spattering of starters (we change it up every time depending on what's fresh and recommended by the servers) and Rita loves the salads and Gazpacho (in the Spring/Summer season). If you're planning a visit during the summer season, be sure to reserve (on the terrace preferably) because this place is big but it gets packed! A meal for two and a bottle of house wine should set you back around €80. ¡Que aproveche! Enjoy!

We appreciate consistency and tend to stick with the same places and go for that "where everybody knows your name" kind of vibe. Check out our local magazines Essential and Society for fabulous reviews and lists of restaurants and bars to visit.

One of our best kept secrets in Elviria, our namesake restaurant will blow you away with its sumptuous cuisine and flawless service. We first stumbled upon it on a wintery evening years ago and walked in with zero expectations and we were left speechless. Everything we ordered was cooked and presented to perfection and the service and entire evening was another level. We have been going back ever since and recommend Elviria to everyone we know. Tim personally can't get enough of the Beef Tartare and my vegetarian heart is all about their Gratinated Goat Cheese! For our main courses, we always change things up and see what the Chef's specials are because they're always new and mouthwatering. Since it's literally just down the mountain and across the bridge, we hope you get a chance to enjoy a dinner at Elviria Restaurant. We do recommend you book as it's usually fully booked. Three courses here with a bottle of wine for the table should set you back approx. €50/head.

Rosmarino is not only an Elviria landmark, it's a local institution! For over 15 years, the Rosmarino family have been serving us traditional Italian cuisine and Elviria and beyond is loving it. Located in the heart of Elviria just off the main roundabout (you can't miss it!), Rosmarino is easily accessible with ample parking and a menu that truly has something for everyone and seriously... Who doesn't love Italian anyway? My favourite is the goat cheese salad that is served in the edible parmesan basket that is to DIE FOR! Tim loves the Beef Carpaccio here. I usually go with the Penne Arrabiata for my main course and Tim always chooses something different and has rarely not loved what he's ordered. Rosmarino is great for both lunch and dinner. Stylishly designed and decorated by a friend of ours, Rosmarino is a restaurant where Elviria comes to eat. Tim and I usually have two courses here and the house wine and our bill is around €75.

This newly-opened Italian restaurant has become Tim's and my #1 place to celebrate anything and everything. If you like Italian, you'll love this place! Beautifully decorated in light, neutral tones, you can choose to eat in the outdoor garden, the glass enclosed all-season terrace or the main salon complete with library and fireplace. Tibor, the Italian owner, is on hand to welcome you and his passion and energy are palpable. Our favourite server is Pri, always there with a smile and a recommendation. Every member of the team is professional and there to make sure your evening is enjoyable. But the prize goes to the food... Ahhhh the food! You're welcomed with a complimentary glass of Prosecco and delicious breadsticks soaked in olive oil, garlic and rosemary. Menu options are a list of specials or the a la carte menu. Tim always wings it and has never had a less than amazing experience. I'm a vegetarian and usually stick with what I know so I order the Eggplant Parmigiana for starters (which is the best I've ever had!) and the Penne Arrabbiata for my main. Then for dessert (because there's always room, right?), we split the cheesecake, which is divine! Three courses here with a bottle of wine for the table should set you back approx. €50/head. Molto buona!

Who doesn't love a curry, am I right? Our local is Masala in Elviria where we know that Sam, the owner, will always take care of us. In the eight years that we have been eating at Masala, we have never had a bad experience and when we crave a Tikka Masala, this is the only one we like! We usually choose to take away but the newly-enclosed terrace is fabulous and during the summer season, it's packed with patrons all enjoying the authentic Goan-style cuisine served with true Asian flavour. All the servers Sam has on his team are the most humble and sweetest guys you'll ever meet who can't do enough for you. Everyone speaks English so you won't have any problem ordering your favourite dishes, and they're all on the menu... Guaranteed! No need to tell you our favourites here but try the Tandoori stuffed mushrooms. A dinner for two with a bottle of wine should set you back around €60. Enjoy!

We honestly feel a trip to Marbella just wouldn't be complete without having a meal at this Old Town Jewel and that's why we've included it. They have also opened a branch on the beach in Elviria called Casanis La Plage, which is also fabulous! If you're visiting either of the locations in the summer months, we recommend booking well in advance because they get booked up fast! (The Old Town branch lets you book online). Casanis is Belgian-owned and their cuisine is Belgian with a French-twist and literally everything is delicious. Just thinking about those Belgian fries makes my mouth water. We usually order the Beef Tartare and the Goat Cheese Salad respectively and finish off with the Crème Brûlée and Chocolate Fondant. A meal for two with a bottle of wine should set you back around €120 and is worth every single penny. Bon appétit!

If you're looking for the best seafood in Marbella, this is it. But be prepared for a cafeteria, neon lights type setting. This is a workers' place, cheap and cheerful where there's no fuss, and it's purely about the quality of the food and the catch of the day.

The name of this restaurant translates to "The Fisherman's House" and that is literally what it used to be. The owner protested the destruction of this home, fighting to preserve it, camping outside it when cranes stood to tear it down. And he finally won and painstakingly restored it brick by brick and today, he and his family proudly serve up freshly caught fish and seafood and other local dishes that are truly delicious. The pride they have in this family business is in every bite. You won't regret a visit to this quaint Marbella treasure!
