Skina is a unique space located in a charming street in the centre of Marbella. Chef Mario Cachinero is at the helm of the kitchen at Skina to offer an experience of authentic Andalusian gastronomic craftsmanship that is well deserving of its two Michelin stars. 

3. Lobito de Mar (Avda. Bulevar Príncipe Alfonso, 178 -Marbella) 

The TV chef Dani García brings the essence of the beach bars to the urban territory. From prawns from Sanlúcar to squid croquettes and espetos, all the traditional flavours of the Costa del Sol have their place on the menu. 

4. Nintai (Calle Ramón Gómez de la Serna, 18 - Marbella) 

The Nintai restaurant is the most exclusive option for sushi lovers in Marbella, certified with a Michelin star. Marcos Granda's bet is materialised in an 'omakase' bar for only twelve diners. It offers an oriental gastronomic experience typical of the itamae masters, who prepare sushi guided by precision and excellence.

5. Coa Restaurant (Calle las Malvas, 2 – Nueva Andalucía) 

Coa Restaurant is a place, especially for lovers of grilled meats. Chef David Aguado runs the kitchen of this establishment, which has managed to fuse traditional Mediterranean cuisine with a chic touch in its menu. If the result is spectacular in terms of flavours, it is even more so in the originality of its presentations.
