If you really want to push the boat out, try some beluga might not be the cheapest on the menu, but it really is exquisite.

Main courses range from some fantastic seafood dishes, including Vietnam, which comes from pan-seared sea bass on maki rolls and tom kha gai sauce, to a grilled beef tournedos, served with truffle risotto, cherry tomatoes marinated in thyme , asparagus and red wine - otherwise known as The Malta.

The Indian restaurant Mumtaz, Puerto Banus
If you're in the mood for something hot and spicy, Mumtaz Indian restaurant in the marina is a must. A Marbella institution of sorts, Mumtaz has been welcoming guests for over 27 years.

Overlooking the superyachts, the restaurant has a large wrap-around terrace ideal on warm evenings and a recently renovated and comfortable interior that is popular year-round and a great place for al fresco dining in winter.

The chicken jalfrezi is to die for and the Mumtaz soup, served as a starter with lentils and spices, is one of the best dishes on the menu. If you want to treat yourself, order the Tandoori King Prawns. Not the cheapest dish on the menu, but absolutely phenomenal...

Hailing from North India, the team of talented chefs pride themselves on using authentic Indian spices and the freshest ingredients to continue a long tradition of serving premium Indian food.

Die Banditen, Puerto Banus
Los Bandidos is one of the most well-known restaurants in Puerto Banus, and if the walls could talk, this lively place would have a few stories to tell. The restaurant was opened in the 1970's by Jill Lindeberg and her husband as an after-golf spot for his golf club, Los Bandidos. The Los Bandidos Golf Society included some famous names from the small screen and sports worlds including Sean Connery and Kevin Keegan were frequent visitors to this famous venue.

Today, guests still come across a number of well-known celebrities who dine at the restaurant and enjoy the fine cuisine on offer. The menu features a delicious selection of Swedish, French and Spanish dishes and Los Bandidos restaurant is a must when in Puerto Banus.

La Sala-Restaurant, Puerto Banus
La Sala is something of a revelation and has been one of Marbella's biggest success stories in the last 12 months.

Open seven days a week from 10am to 2am, Las Sala offers a wide range of different areas to sit, relax, enjoy the music, eat, drink and be merry. A large outdoor terrace offers a magnificent view of La Concha mountain.

La Sala has quickly become a must-see place in Puerto Banus for both residents and vacationers. The restaurant is located near the large roundabout below the Nueva Andalucia bullring, next to Kristina Szekely's office. La Sala enjoys a great location. Whether you fancy a light bite, breakfast or a gourmet dinner, La Sala comes highly recommended.

Spanish and international dishes feature on the menus, and a private dining room caters to VIPs and larger groups. The breakfast menu is fantastic with full English, smoked salmon, muffins, croissants, you name it... you'll find it on the menu. The Menu del Dia is just €15 for three courses and an all day bar menu is available.

Live music is offered various nights during the week, plus free valet parking, which is a huge plus considering the fees for parking in the port.

The red pepper, Puerto Banus
The Red Pepper Restaurant offers an excellent selection of fresh seafood with a Greek twist.

Located on the front line of the marina with great views of the boats, this is also the perfect place to watch the world go by and soak up the cosmopolitan ambiance of this famous port.

Well established and in an unbeatable location, this Greek taverna style restaurant combines the finest seafood with a variety of typical Greek dishes and ingredients. Prices are reasonable, service is friendly and efficient, and the food is absolutely delicious.

The mezze (starters) are outstanding and the Greek selection of dips includes humous (with chickpeas, lemon and fresh herbs), taramalsalata (fish roe, extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice) and tzatziki (yoghurt, cucumber, fresh mint and garlic) are wonderful with a selection of warm, home-baked bread. We also enjoyed a crunchy Greek salad with olives and feta cheese. The wine list here is as impressive as the menu and the dry white Ribera Del Duero is fresh and perfectly chilled.

For a treat, try the grilled lobster for main course - selected from the restaurant's tank - this king of crustaceans couldn't get any fresher. Served either grilled with garlic, thermidor or boiled with salad and mayonnaise, the lobster was absolutely delicious and the best we have eaten in years.

A great place for a special occasion or a delicious al fresco lunch overlooking the marina.

Route 66, Puerto Banus
Located just behind the actual marina in Puerto Banus, on Plaza Antonio Banderas in front of El Corte Inglés, Route 66 is a fun, quirky place to eat and drink and is quickly developing a fantastic reputation.

Guests at Route 66 are likely to pay around €15 per head, excluding drinks, and the bar and grill offer great food at amazing prices. Route 66 is open all day and visitors can enjoy T-bone steaks, excellent homemade burgers with a variety of toppings, salads, delicious desserts and much more. Make the most of an excellent cocktail menu, too (try the Mai Tai, Long Island Iced Tea, Frozen Margarita or the ever-popular Strawberry Daquiri. And if you have a favorite that's not on the list, ask the barman and he will do it for you!

If you want to soak up the booze from last night, try one of the sumptuous breakfasts featuring eggs, sausage, bacon, breakfast fries and waffles, rump steak, mushrooms and all the trimmings. On the other hand, if you prefer a healthy breakfast option, try the fruit salad with granola, the omelettes or the continental breakfast. This is a great place to bring the kids and on our last visit the kids menu was less than €6. A great place for birthday parties and special occasions.

The Astral Cocktail Bar, Puerto Banus
Astral is the place to go if you want to enjoy your cocktails al fresco, and the staff serves a wide variety of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. One of the most famous cocktail bars in the port, Astral uses the finest fresh ingredients including fresh seasonal fruit, natural ingredients, fresh mint, herbs and spices and plenty of crushed ice.

Only the finest spirits and liqueurs are used to create a delicious range of cocktails. The bar was built to look like an old sailing boat with mast and sails and is located at the east end of Puerto Banus (towards Marbella).
