Expert review of Finca Besaya
The ability to draw locals and holidaymakers away from the hubs of Puerto Banús and Marbella town centre is a sure sign that a restaurant is extremely good. Finca Besaya is just that. The ochre-coloured, two storey finca (country house) would have once been surrounded by olive groves and, although the area is now dominated by golf courses and exclusive residential developments, I still love the views across the valley from my favourite table on the first-floor terrace.
A fusion of Spanish and Italian dishes made using fresh local ingredients make up the extensive à la carte menu. My partner described the vanilla-flavoured lobster served with seasonal vegetables as “the tastiest meal in the last 10 years”. You won’t be disappointed by the selection of wines either.
It's charmingly rustic with mosaic and wrought iron tables and chairs. Over-sized daybeds also give an air of low-key luxury. I’d like this to be my Marbella country pile.
There are lots of staff on hand without it being intrusive.
It's in the golf valley on the outskirts of Puerto Banús, on the Marbella side.
It's not the cheapest - main courses can cost up to 30 euros each.
In the summer, ask to be seated on the terrace.
