Expert review of Polo House
The ex-Army major and former lover of Princess Diana opened the doors to the Polo House, on Marbella’s Golden Mile, a couple of years ago and since then it’s been a firm favourite of mine. I’ve run the whole gamut here: aperitifs, light bar snacks, full on lavish meals and post-dinner cocktails around the baby grand piano. It’s all very civilised.
Drinks are beautifully presented in crystal glasses by staff wearing military jackets. The menu is well thought out and innovative. I love the Galician oysters or the scallops (served with popcorn!) to start, followed by the rack of lamb. The wine list is exceptional - as is the sommelier.
Dark wooden floors and bars, brass fittings, huge potted palms against white walls, Indian statues, tablecloths and champagne-coloured sofas create a quintessentially colonial feel. The mix of locals and holidaymakers creates a lively, sociable vibe.
It's slick and well polished. It seems to get better every time I go. James Hewitt usually does the rounds in his distinctive, debonair style.
It’s on a busy junction on the eastern end of the Golden Mile.
It's about 35 euros a head without wine, so about average for the area.
