Chef Mauricio Giovanini produces original culinary creations at his restaurant Marbella Messina. Modern, carefully designed and glamorous, the restaurant looks to the unexpected, offering curiosities such as tomato ?yolk? or strawberry beer. The menu changes continuously according to season, but always features handmade pastas and a tasting menu with dishes such as ceviche with transparent lime peel and fizzy lime juice mousse, or pan-fried tuna terrine with coconut milk ?caviar?. The wine list features plenty of interesting choices, while desserts are all homemade.

    We selected the 14 course taster menu 72Euros, lots of different flavours, a lot of fish dishes and a tasty steak.. The food was delicious, and well presented, the wine pairing informative and the staff very attentive. The restaurant itself is lovely and set out well. staff arranged a car/transport for us at a reasonable price, well dressed drivers, bottled water provided, worth the money to ensure a guaranteed 'taxi'

    Welcomed warmly by the friendly staff. Shown to a spacious table in a calm contemporary setting. Chose the Messina tasting menu (14 courses) Each course was presented with an explanation of what it was and how it should be eaten. The portions were tiny but were of superb quality and taste. Each course was a delight (our favourites being "the legs served with lobster emulsion" and "boned Black Angus ribs") We had a bottle of wine which was reasonably priced. A nice touch was the extra chocolate "fix" at the end! For a Michelin starred restaurant, we felt we had good value for money.

    Absolutely fabulous. We have been visiting this restaurant regularly for 6 years and always felt it deserved a Michelin star. Finally this came true in November 2015. Congratulations to the Chef and his wife who is the excellent maitre de as well as the efficient staff. The food is highly imaginative, bursting with unusual flavors, created with passion and presented beautifully. Would highly recommend.

    As close to a Michelin star restaurant as you can get, without being one. Small portions but beautifully cooked lovely flavours, good staff perfect service only downside lacked atmosphere.
