Michelin star restaurants in Andalucia
Marbella is full of cosmopolitan restaurants and chic trendy bistros and tapas bars. Delicious food, excellent fine wine and the company of friends are very much a way of life for the Spanish. But if you want to push the boat out that little bit further you will be pleased to hear that Marbella, and its surrounding areas has some of the most famous and reputable Michelin star restaurants in Spain.
Scattered throughout the region there are a number of 1 and 2 Michelin star restaurants in Andalucia all of which are well worth a visit.
