This week "icon Now" would like to speak about Marbella´s very varied and wide choice of restaurants for lovers of fine dining : There are so many to choose from that we have decided to write about them in various articles starting today.

Spanish cuisine and specially Mediterranean cuisine is recognized worldwide as one of the most well balanced and healthy in the world and needs little introduction however we would like to highlight some of the best places for Icon residents to sample and enjoy some of the best gastronomic delights on offer in Marbella.

Lets start with one that is a benchmark for Andalusian cuisine . Marbella born Dani García in his 2 star Michelin restaurant BIBO Marbella offers a new innovative kitchen based on contrasts but at the same time maintaining the traditional flavours of Southern Spain.

Within his restaurant he has created two different ambiences : El Rincón de la Abuela where one can enjoy a tranquil conversation with family and friends or the Cocktail Bar: ideal for a lively reunion or La Terraza that he defines as one hundred percent the light of Andalusia.

The famous Michelin guide speaks of BIBO:

" A culinary reference for Andalusia" located within the inside plaza of the luxurious Puente Romano hotel , a modern open space with beautiful vertical gardens that incorporates nature. The chef´s creative cuisine with his own personal stamp offers clients a wide array of possibilities

We can find another Gastronomic temple in Marbella´s Calle de Adúar, named " Skina," which is also a restaurant awarded a Michelin star and is run by the young chef from Barcelona, Jaume Puigdengolas.

The guide defines the restaurant as

"Both interesting and daring ! A high flying gastronomic experience. This miniscule restaruant in Marbella´s Old Town maintains a modern aesthetic with a glass wine cellar . Its creative cuisine is based on traditional recipes using impeccable tecniques and top quality products"

In this small restaurant Seafood is of basic fundamental importance and is chosen by season selecting the best fresh fish daily from the local market.

Skina has found its niche among the great restaurants with its cuisine based on tradition and its link to Andalusia and its customs.
