Patrik, chef and owner, of this great restaurant has adapted to the challenging current environment by changing his menu to cater for the limited opening hours available. He now offers a fantastic afternoon range of tapas based on a set menu of 5 for 15...euros. Choice ranges from risotto with mushroom to swedish meatballs to lovely patatas bravas and more. So, if you are rambling around marbella of an afternoon and feeling a bit peckish, I would strongly recommend you pop in and enjoy the fare. You wont regret it.More

We were staying in the Old Town and wanted to eat somewhere close to home on a Sunday night. We saw this was highly rated so decided to stop by. Sitting outside in a nice quiet location, it was a perfect setting for an evening...meal. The menu caught my eye immediately - simple yet classic dishes elevated to another level. I had the satay chicken starter and very reasonably priced fillet steak in red wine sauce. My wife had goat’s cheese tortellini - the pasta was freshly made and delicious - and she also opted for the fillet steak. Both bits of meat were cooked perfectly. Mine was rare and it was genuinely up there with the tastiest I’ve eaten. Both the chips and the potato puree sides were excellent. Finished off with dessert tapas - having 4 out of the 6 available. Some great options, all really, really good. See photos! The service was great - Laurens (I think!) was attentive and very friendly, while the chef brought out the meals to the table himself which was a nice touch. We finished off the evening by getting one more drink just to carry on chatting to our waiter! We’d happily go back and work our way through the menu - keep up the good work!More

Amazing romantic restaurant. Not so many tables. The service was excellent, forgott to ask for our waiters name but he was perfect. Very professional but also easygoing. Great wine suggestions. The food was top notch. Had pasta dish as pre course and the lamb as...main course. It was excellent and cooked to perfection. We will always visit Bistro Paloma when visiting Mabella in the future. Thanks you for a great experience. Mikael & Anna from Stockholm/Sweden :)More

Following a recent visit to Marbella with two friends on a golfing holiday, we decided to dine well in the evening after a frustrating day on the golf course. Bistro Paloma has stunning food, best chef in Marbella and his mode of dress is somewhat...humorous, head waiter is a top man. Highly recommended.More

Would like to wish you a busy 2020. We eat in this restaurant each time we visit Marbella, owner chef has great menu choice and front house staff are excellent. Situated in lovely street not far from orange square. We look forward already to our...first visit of many in 2020More

Very long service-40 mns to get your meal- heavy and salty- wouldn’t recommend. Musician too close from the tables.

As we sat eating our meal more and more people were coming in to book for other nights and was obvious they were recurring visitors so that says a lot! Not many outside seats so you’d definitely need to book them. But inside is also...very comfortable. Food is excellent. No complaints and really tasty. We went for fish options. Didn’t have desert.More

Dinner on a Monday evening and it was excellent. The food is very good and the service is very friendly and efficient. Would recommend all the dishes we had - pulled pork spring roll, stroganoff, onion soup and fish. If you want a table outside...maybe best to book.More

Hi, I just called them to book. Not sure if there's an email on the website or you could maybe send a message on Facebook. Sorry I'm not more helpful. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
