This eatery hasn`t changed or dropped its standards since our last visit several years ago. The staff were attentive and helpful. Starters were a lovely scrambled egg and ham and asparagos dish and melon with prawns. All were excellent. The mains were lamb shoulder, fillet steak and chicken curry . The whole party had an enjoyable meal.

We have dined at Playa Bella on numerous occasions and it occurred to me just now that I have never reviewed it. Saying that, I haven't reviewed most of the restaurants we have dined in, probably because of time! My most recent visit was on Monday this week and on this occasion I was dining alone. As always it was... More

This was our second time of joining friends here for dinner in the past year. Never disappointed. You must have a reservation. The restaurant is relatively small and tables are always full. We were seated immediately and our drink order taken. Drinks appeared promptly, as did the garlic bread and olives. We ordered appetizers as well as entrees (extensive list... More

It's been a year since we were here. It's a really popular place. The menu and the boss himself always recommends the sirloin because it is tastier and not the fillet. When the sirloin came, it was huge but frankly the amount of meat on it was quite small, the rest being fat! My colleague who had the fillet was... More

I've been here tens of times and always eaten the same entrecôte with chill and garlic. It is simply so good.

My wife and I have been to this wonderful restaurant very often...because the standard of food is so consistent!! Great steaks, amazing duck and superb leg of lamb. This combined with friendly and helpful staff.....5 star!!! You might easily pass this restaurant between Puerto Banus and San Pedro, but please don't. Enjoy

We LOVE this restaurant and visit every year. From the outside it looks uninviting because it's next door to a petrol station. Inside, it's beautiful with a warm atmosphere and very friendly staff. A pre-starter is provided, which is delicious and filling, so we ignore the choice of menu starters and always order a main and a dessert. My husband's... More
