I have to say with a heavy heart that the food at the playwright was disappointing . I am not at all sure if the chef actually turned up the food was that bad on my visit. For the prices charged I shall not be...going there again - to charge premium prices you need premium food and the playwright does not have it anymore ☹️More

Such a nice Saturday at Playwright ! Super value for the price and the service. Daniel & Kelly were taking super nice care of us. Wine and coctail recommendations were on point and the food was very good, especially the ravioli from the main courses.Definitely...will come back, and definitely will recommend to go!More

The Playwright is a foodie staple in East Marbella. Completely refurbished during the spring/summer lockdown in 2020 all of the original warm comfortable ambiance is retained with an added vibrance of colours and style. The dishes are cosmopolitan British which are a delight to the...eye and a tasty feast to the stomach. Value for money for locals and tourists alike. Recommended.More

Excellent meal in a slightly over the top Amazonian flavoured ambience! Good service and live music. Unfortunately not many clients when we visited so a bit quiet overall but cannot fault the food and service.
