If you are going to offer english style fish and chips then get a chef who can cook them. Greasy fish and soggy chips.

Thank you for your review. Our Fish & Chips is proving very popular with very positive feedback. We are sorry it wasn't to your liking. Our design is industrial. We wouldn't call it scruffy but thanks for the feedback. Regards Mike Owner

This restaurant is a firm favourite of mine whenever I visit Marbella. Fillet steak for lunch was cooked to perfection. The service was attentive and prompt so overall another thumbs up for this restaurant. No dessert today but who knows maybe next time.

Thank you for your review. We certainly don't have a sea view but we are ideally situated just off the Golden Mile with the best free car park in Marbella! Hope to see you again soon! Regards Mike Owner

Really Fantastic roast and so much of it we could hardly manage to eat the wonderful apple crumble and chocolate brownie but it was impossible to leave a morsel. Staff were also so helpful and friendly will definitely be back.

Description
SmallWorld Cafe has won the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2013 - 2015 and has received several awards from the Mayor of Marbella. We thank our amazing local and international clientele and last but certainly not least, our wonderful team, past and present. We opened our doors 8 years ago next to the world famous Olivia Valere night club and the Palace of the King of Saudi Arabia. We are also very close to the world renowned Swiss hotel management university, Les Roches. We built it in a Shoreditch and Manhattan style, with brick walls, wooden floors and an exposed ceiling. SmallWorld has 4 terraces and there is plenty of space for private functions and birthdays. The inside has a raised podium dining area with sofas to chill out on and free wifi in case you need to get some work done or simply surf the net (or review us on TripAdvisor!). The menu, well, simples... big portions, small prices and delicious, nuf said! We aim to please, so you shouldn't be disappointed... Again, thanks to all our lovely customers and hope to see you soon.
