WHAT do you do when you have one of the most popular restaurants in La Cala de Mijas that has gained so much support in only a year?
The answer was easy for Steven and Michele Saunders, owners of The Little Geranium and that was to open another restaurant with the same style, ethos and high quality cuisine but this time on the Golden Mile in Marbella.
Situated directly opposite the Marbella Club Hotel and next to the latest in the Danni Garcia chain, The Little Geranium Marbella has some impressive neighbours but will fit in well asit is going to attract aficionados of the La Cala Geranium and create a whole now base of those who enjoy the gastronomic best in the affluent Marbella catchment area.
Michele who has been in charge of interior design will be running the 35 seat restaurant and welcoming guests to enjoy a fine dining experience based on a menu designed by husband Steven.
Whilst all of the food is prepared from fresh ingredients daily and the menu will including a la carte and a tasting selection, one ingredient will be a permanent fixture which is a delicious aromatic duck dish which was a favourite of former client in the UK Diana, Princess of Wales.
Two chefs from Dunnes Michelin star restaurant in Belfast have been recruited to produce the superb cuisine and once they are firmly established, they will work with Steven to present a number of new dishes, worthy of international recognition.
With a well thought out wine list and immaculate service from waiters Tate and Manuel Angel, this will fast become a major new name in Marbella but prices are not sky high, especially when you consider the top quality ingredients and the level of expertise that goes into making the dishes.
This is unquestionably fine dining in delightful surroundings in an easy to find location with free parking in the rear.
Evening service only is offered from Tuesday to Saturday in order to allow all (including Steven and Michele) to have some time to themselves so that they are always fresh for their customers.
