Where to Eat on Your Next Costa Vacation!

Eating out along the Costa del Sol is characterised by exquisite locally sourced ingredients and al fresco dining under a warm afternoon sun or a milder evening sky. Spain is known worldwide for its delicious culinary offerings such as paella and gazpacho, and there is certainly not a shortage in supply in excellent restaurants and chiringuitos in the region.

At Costa Vacations, we are proud to not only offer a variety of resorts to suit many needs and budgets, but also a selection of excellent restaurants within easy reach of your chosen location.

Le Papillon Restaurant & Beach Club enjoys a prime location and is a highly recommended spot for tourists and locals alike. Situated on the stunning beachfront in Marbesa, the restaurant is often bathed in natural sunlight and offers spectacular views of the Mediterranean, an excellent choice of locally sourced fresh fish, succulent meats and an array of wines and expertly shaken cocktails – Perfect for a casual spot of lunch in the sun or a romantic evening for two! Le Papillon also hosts a variety of special evenings featuring live music and entertainment.

Roberto’s is conveniently located in Club Playa Real, our resort set within the beautiful peaceful neighbourhood of Marbesa. Newly styled and refurbished, the restaurant offers an old world charm, with beige columns and marble flooring throughout. Roberto’s specialises in Italian cuisine with a Spanish edge, offering a variety of home-cooked pizza and pasta dishes using the freshest local ingredients. Spanish classics like a Gambas Pil-Pil and sliced Avocado with Prawns can be enjoyed as starters, followed by a freshly baked pizza with your choice of toppings or maybe a Wild Mushroom Risotto, Swordfish Steak or Fillet of Beef with a side of pepper, blue cheese or mushroom sauce. For desert, don’t miss out on the Crepes al Gran Marnier, Profiteroles with Chocolate Sauce or the classic Italian, home-made Tiramisu!

Roberto’s is at the tip of your fingers if you stay in one of our Marbesa resorts and is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner! The restaurant hosts entertainment on various evenings, a Buffet night on a weekly basis and also offers a take away service so that you can enjoy the food in the comfort of your apartment.
