NileGuide Expert tip:
If you're going for a romantic dinner, reserve one of the two tables on the balconies overlooking Plaza de los Naranjos.
, Local Traditional
Restaurante Cervantes is a charming restaurant in the Old Town with a romantic setting and inventive dishes. This elegant, yet comfortable restaurant is located in Marbella's famous Orange Square, or Plaza de los Naranjos, and retains the authentic feel of an Andalusian mansion from the 17th century. Chef Raul Gomes uses local ingredients to elaborate a creative, reasonably priced menu that separate Cervantes from other restaurants with a traditional ambience. A selection of fresh, delicious dishes includes the terrine of slow cooked lamb shoulder on a bed of mashed sweet potatoes and goat cheese emulsion. Portions are modest yet satisfying, and you'll want to save room for dessert anyway. We suggest the mouth-watering French pudding with wild fruits, balsamic vinegar, and parmesan ice cream. If you don't see a tasting menu listed, just ask the accommodating staff—the chef will be happy to prepare something special for you.
