Desde que llegamos notamos que se trataba de un lugar único, la atención del personal es inmejorable, te hacen sentir muy cómodo. Eso hasta que llego la cena y supimos de inmediato que se convertiría en uno de esos sitios al que regresas siempre y al que te apetece invitar a tus amigos para que lo conozcan. Felicitaciones por tanto... More

Very friendly staff who seemed to know everyone that came in. Tasty Salmorejo to start and really good Caesar salad. My partner had chicken bites to start followed by salmon which were also... More

Arenal has a new owner and is completely renovated. The woman who owned the place is really very nice and the menu card is great. Lots of choice and very good quality at a reasonable price. As a frequent visitor of Marbella we recommend this place at the beach. On Sunday there is life music with a great singer. A... More

My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful Sunday lunch here and it will be repeated. Was here first with my brother a couple of days ago and the total experience was so good that I couldn't wait to visit again. We live only a short walk away so it's luckily within easy reach for us. The food and the presentation... More

We visited the Arenal Beach bar & restaurant for lunch from the beach. The place has very recently been totally redecorated with all new furniture and fittings.. It looks very attractive. The menu was rather disappointing, and much the same as most other places. Service was very friendly but rather disjointed , with errors made on our dishes ordered. The... More

Restaurant with an international cuisine and exceptional service, beautifully located in the dunes on one of the most precious stretches of beach around Marbella. Enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner, from our lobster fettuccine to a chicken sandwich, we will not disappoint. You are always welcome for a cocktail and a light bite with the stunning backdrop of the mediterranean sea.
