It's a nice restaurant that offers you good food. Nothing we tasted was so amazing that I would rush back to this place, but everything was good. The best part were actually the desserts for us!

Messina is alway's on our must go to restaurants when we visit Marbella. It's Michelin Star was totally appropriate and long overdue. The cuisine is totally creative and presented with great passion. The stall are extremely well informed and add immeasurably to the experience with their enthusiasm and personality. An outstanding venue for a special occasion.
