Restaurant Casino Marbella - winning ways!

Of course it goes without saying that you don’t have to chance your luck at roulette or blackjack in order to dine in the restaurant… or vice versa. “Many clients do both,” says maître d’, Gerard Vall-Llaura, “but we have plenty of guests who come simply because they want to enjoy excellent food in upbeat surroundings. Some of our clients take the gaming tables very seriously, others are happy just to have the briefest of flutters on the fruit machines after their meal.”

With the kitchen open until 2.30am, Casino Marbella is also the perfect eatery for night owls. After you’ve dined you’re welcome to linger in the restaurant and – with three bars to choose from, plus the gaming tables and state-of-the-art slot machines – why hurry home when you can prolong your night out until 4am if you so wish.

As for the food, well with Basque chef Borja Villanueva at the helm – who incidentally has worked alongside the likes of Arzak and Subijana – you’re in for quite a treat. “It obviously depends on the season,” he explains, “but hake and sea bass are always popular with our guests, as is the terrine of foie, while desserts such as baked hot chocolate or gratin of dates with almond ice cream always go down well.” The menu changes three times a year so there’s always something new to tempt you, and Casino Marbella also hosts various gastronomic events featuring, for example, fish and seafood, shish kebabs, and Italian, Oriental or Russian cuisine.

The wine list comprises around 50 different options, mostly all from Spanish vineyards, with an emphasis on rarer wineries as well as several of the more avant-garde of bodegas. There’s an impressive selection of gourmet coffees and teas on offer, too. And as if all that were not enough, with a series of temporary exhibitions throughout the year, you can also take time out to look at the stunning works adorning the walls.

With all this and more, it’s no surprise that by visiting Casino Marbella, you might well hit the jackpot in more ways than one.
