Marbella Michelin Star Restaurants

Here we list the Michelin Star restaurants available in Marbella, whose well renowned chefs provide a fantastic dining experience.

Restaurants - Three Michelin stars

Dani Garcia
One of Andalucia's most renowned and respected chefs, known for his imagination and originality, Dani has two restaurants at the beachfront Hotel Puente Romano in Marbella. Dani is Malaga province's first chef with three Michelin stars, and only the second (after Angel Leon) in Andalucia.

The eponymous Dani Garcia restaurant serves dishes such as carrot cup cake; nitro tomato ceviche; stew with mint and caviar; and millefeuille of caramelized green apple and goat cheese with foie and sour puree.

Dani trained with Martin Berasategui, and won his first star back in 2000 for his restaurant Tragabuches in Ronda. The Marbellan chef presided over Calima in the Hotel Gran Melia from 2005 to 2013, where he won his first star in 2007, and his second in 2010. For more about him, see our interview.

He won his third Michelin star in 2018 (his two stars from Calima were revalidated to Dani Garcia in 2014).  

In December 2018, Dani made the shock announcement via Social Media that his three-Michelin-starred restaurant would close on 22 October 2019. For more details, see our blog post.
