Handpicked by a Marbella Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'Best Restaurants In Marbella Old Town'.

Every trip to Marbella has to include at least a couple of nights dining under the stars with the heady scent of Orange blossom and Dama de Noche. Here is your guide to whats best in the Old Town, and even a few tips on what to miss.
Marbella Old Town is a foodie paradise, with something for everyone. It's always worth a good long wander to find your favourite dining spots, but I would recommend not getting too excited about the dining on Orange Square, it's a gorgeous spot but you will be better off for your sojourn to the famous square by just sticking to a nice coffee or ice cream and spending your food money on one of the amazing places on my list.

Bar El Estrecho

Situated off the beaten track down a narrow alley in the centre of Marbella's old town, you may be hard pushed to find Bar El Estrecho yet it is one of the most acclaimed tapas bars in Marbella.
