Casanis - Marbella
Request a table outside if you love to people watch as the pretty street is buzzing during the summer evenings but for a more romantic meal then head inside and find a cosy corner table.

Directions to Casanis
Casanis has become a favourite of both residents and visitors of Marbella for its traditional French cuisine with a contemporary twist and the charming decor.
Tucked away like a hidden gem on Calle Ancha in the old town, the French bistro is in a beautiful building that is 150 years old and is picturesque with plants and flowers climbing the walls outside and expertly painted murals adorning the walls inside.
You can dine outside in the summer months and watch the world go by and in winter choose from one of the tables downstairs or upstairs where there is a jungle room that can also be used for parties.
Many of the staff have been at Casanis for years and it has become more than just a job to them - they remember diners on their return to the restaurant and are friendly and attentive.
On our visit to the restaurant we were treated to a sumptuous meal and a great evening, which will definitely be repeated soon.
Our meal began with starters of Vietnamese Nems (a type of spring roll) served with mint, coriander and nuoc-nam dipping sauce; flambéed prawns; and tuna tartar with a velouté of squash and leeks tempura all accompanied by a crisp Sancerre.
Our main meals included daily specials of seared red tuna served with asparagus and potatoes; a ragout of fish with prawns, scallops, monkfish and a lobster bisque; lamb shank served with green beens, shallots and potatoes; and the popular guinea fowl stuffed with foie gras served with spinach and celeriac and potato mash accompanied by Châteauneuf-du-Pape for the meat dishes.
For those with a sweet tooth, the desserts as Casanis are definitely worth trying so we shared the Tarte Tatin and a special of peché mignon - a chocolate dessert that was light and delicious.
Opposite the restaurant is the Casanis shop, which sells wine and many of the different delicacies you will find in dishes from the restaurant.
