Expert review of Finca Besaya

Contemporary, Mediterranean cuisine in a classily-restored Andalusian mansion.

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.

Food and drink: 

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.

Ambience: 

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.

Service: 

There are lots of staff on hand without it being intrusive.

Location: 

It's in the golf valley on the outskirts of Puerto Banús, on the Marbella side.

Price advice: 

It's not the cheapest - main courses can cost up to 30 euros each.

Tables to book: 

In the summer, ask to be seated on the terrace.
