La Sala Puerto Banus
Nueva Andalucia / Puerto Banus 

No visit to Puerto Banus is complete without the La Sala experience, buzzy and very ‘Marbella’. Food delicious, bar prices affordable, people watching and fun factor – huge! Best comment, Barbie looks gorgous but Ken’s showing his age!

Ambrosia Mercardo Gourmet Marbella
Nueva Andalucia East / Puerto Banus 

This is something really special. Opened July 2015, it is a stunning contemporary gourmet food destination, where you buy and dine. Like a very upmarket food mall, you choose what you want to eat and its then brought to your table. Central bar for drinks too, plus upstairs a cocktail bar. Very chic, very Madrid. Love it.  Excellent people watching too. Nearby parking supervised by Ambrosia’s own ‘guards’!

Restaurant El Guino
San Pedro de Alcantara

Located close to the main roundabout on Boulevard San Pedro this modern gastro type restaurant is worth a visit … if only for their great hot starter of Mash, Fois, Truffle and Poached Egg, delicious. A modern take on traditional Spanish recipes, plus great urban decor. Very cool and suitable for families too. with nearby playgrounds and skating rink.

Asador Vovem
Nueva Andalucia

Stunning new grill restaurant, next to El Dorado’s and Supercor in Nueva Andalucia, specialising in the top beef around the world, stylish and for meat aficiandos/  carnivores only – the less meaty eaters can be put off! Newly opened in 2015. Lovely outside stylish terrace.

Shango’s Restaurant
La Campana

Good value local restaurant, food prepared in Wood Fired Ovens. Good reviews from recent visitors who visited more than once during their week holiday.

El Dorados
Nueva Andalucia

Loved by locals and ex-pats alike – little hole in the wall bar with great lunchtime tapas. Closed on Monday.

Bistro Bar Urban
San Pedro de Alcantara

Great location, good value and trendy decor. Nice lunch or casual dinner appeal, plus good for families, teenagers, casual diners. Pool table and sports TV indoors too as well as outdoor seating. Good choice in burgeoning San Pedro de Alcantara, two visits this week, looks like it could be a regular no brainer.

Restaurante Guey & Skybar
Nueva Andalucia

Beautiful stylish restaurant and gorgeous food, recommended for a ‘special grown-up night’, get dressed up and get the babysitters in! Stunning outside garden and indoor ‘skybar’.

La Sala by the Sea
Nueva Andalucia

Loved by the TOWIE Crowd, wannabees and their elder sisters! Jewellery, hairspray and bikinis are de riguer. It has an excellent Asian inspired restaurant which is open for dinner late into the evening, perfect for late summer night dining, and often has live entertainment. Highly enjoyable, very Marbs!

Pedro’s Beach Chiringuito
Nueva Andalucia

Featuring a canopy of thatched parasols, and upturned beer kegs for seats, this low-key, long-established Chiringuito is right on the beach and is a Puerto Banus favourite.

Mistral Beach
Nueva Andalucia

Mediterranean sea food and people watching with sunbathing and massages for desserts, very chillaxing. Great for glamorous grown ups, you 40 pluses! That means ladies in kaftans, gents in white linen (accessories with hairspray and sunglasses).

Ocean Club Marbella
Nueva Andalucia

Champagne parties and footballers, soapstars, wannabees and boy bands, its like a real life ‘Hello Magazine’, see the gossip live, before its published, take a camera and your wallet … can be expensive (most of the beach clubs are). Still, you’re on holiday, enjoy!

Boulevard de San Pedro
San Pedro de Alcantara

The best thing to happen to San Pedro de Alcantara in a long time. Extensive boulevard above motorway tunnel packed with kiddy playgrounds, activities, cycling paths, promenading, gastropubs, an outdoor skating rink, skateboarding park, music pavillions and a photographic wonky bridge.

Aventura Amazonia Marbella

Aventura Amazonia Marbella, is the largest adventure park in Andalusia and the only one right on the coast. Just 500m. from the beach it has a total of 83 challenges in the trees and 20 ziplines distributed over 6 adventure circuits: MiniKids, Kids, Explorador, Jungla, Aventura and Deportivo, plus 3 training circuits.

You can experience a variety of water slides, trampolines, jumping cushions, climbing walls and many other challenging attractions, in all different shapes and sizes. Guaranteed fun for all ages!

Happy Days Skating & Mini Golf
San Pedro de Alcantara Boulevard

Owners and family men Pascal and Sean were continually looking for places to take their families where everybody could have a great time. This is where the idea of combining an American street food style diner, an all-weather ice rink and a mini golf course came from. Everything in one place, great! Really good fun for all the family… and open late into the evening ‘Spanish style’.

Costa Jump Puerto Banus
Nueva Andalucia

CostaJump is the one and only indoor trampoline park in the Costa del Sol. CostaJump is a massive indoor arena filled with wall to wall trampolines. There’s more than 50 interconnected trampolines in the jump zone. Great for kids and adults.
