The Best Restaurant Lunch in Marbella

 I have never gone in for Restaurant reviews, this blog has always been about the food we cook at home, but I am going to make an exception.

I had the most fabulous Lunch on Saturday at Cafe De Ronda on the Av. Ramon Gomez de la Sena, Marbella. It was so good on so many levels I thought I would share it with you.

 Its well located in the smarter part of Marbella and expensively fitted out with cool white walls, cream tiled floors comfortable chairs and some banquet seating, flattering lighting. Its light its modern, its stylish as are the clientele, lawyers and Ladies who Lunch.

It's a Restaurant a Cafe a tapas bar and Lounge in one, you could have a coffee and Pastry or a serious Lunch.

We were shown to a comfortable table and ordered a couple of glasses of Cava (5e each) The service was polished and friendly Two delicious little complimentary Tapas dishes arrived with the Cava, the first was a dish of baby Merguez sausages cooked with Aubergine in a Paprika infused oil, the other a little delicately cooked Chicken Curry, delicious..really delicious.
 I ordered in French Brasserie style the Entrecot Steak with French fries (home made) and the famous original Relais de Paris Sauce, wow what a sauce it is too. which was accompanied with a fresh French Salad in a dijon dressing.
The Steak was superb cooked perfectly and the parsley tarragon Relais de Paris sauce irresistible, the cost 9.90e ...yes 9.90e unbelievable! I finished off with a Chocolate Fondant and drank a bottle of the house Rioja at 10.50e a bottle.

If you are ever in Marbella I urge you to go, Rosa the Manageress was wonderful. It was probably one of the very best Lunches I have had in Marbella and how they do it at the price is beyond me Telephone 0034 952 900 899
