1. Kemuri Marbella– Sophisticated twist on the traditional Japanese food
Kemuri is a brand new restaurant, one of the newest additions to Marbella’s ever-evolving food landscape, and Dani García’s new HIT in his hometown, Marbella. As the name suggests, this is a Japanese restaurant. It is PERFECT and a delight for those adventurers who enjoy Japanese food with some Mediterranean twist. Kemuri Marbella is located in the spectacular Plaza Village on the Golden Mile, a part of hotel Puente Romano. *Opens only for dinner.
2. El VIVO by Conrade (a Michelin Star Chef ) – authentic Italian cuisine
Delicious Italian Dishes. This restaurant is considered by the locals to be the best of its kind on the coast.
Quote from Dr. Susanne Finzel -the voice of food:
‘Surprising taste and honest cuisine! Always on the lookout for real food, I was able to get to know the star chef Renée Conrad, who was highly celebrated in the German press, and his wife Sabine here in Nueva Andalucia. That was 15 years ago now. Typical of Renée Conrad, he cultivates his values of honest cooking undeterred: the best ingredients, little “fuss”, pure taste and the greatest respect for the food and the guest. Amazing the fair price for these taste experiences! Look forward to pure enjoyment in a beautiful, loving and friendly atmosphere.
3. Bar El Estrecho, Marbella downtown – Spanish Food Served with Bonhomie
