The newly-opened Cascada Cocina & Bar, owned by the same group of professionals as the highly-regarded Castillo de Monda, has already become quite a hit with the locals. This charming restaurant and bar is situated in an idyllic setting, perched just up the hill behind Marbella’s Centro Comercial La Cañada next to a waterfall and surrounded by natural vegetation.

What strikes you when you visit this venue is its utter tranquillity. Though only a minute from the hustle and bustle of Marbella’s largest shopping centre, if you choose to dine outside on Cascada’s large patio shaded by elegant shade sails, all you can hear is cascading water, birds tweeting and the faint sound of soothing music emanating from the restaurant inside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you enter inside, there is a delightful bar area next to the open kitchen, which has a wood-burning fire and beautiful ivy green velvet chairs that invite guests to relax whilst enjoying perhaps a freshly-made cocktail or a gin from their extensive menu – including an array of botanicals.

Cocktails are a speciality of theirs, using only premium-brand spirits, and they invite guests in the afternoon for a two-for-one offer – which is an impressive deal when most of their cocktails cost only around €8 each!

When you enter this airy and spacious restaurant, you cannot fail to be impressed by an interior design that could be described as casual-chic in its style. The sleek wooden dining chairs match perfectly with the stone-top tables encircled with chrome, adding a surreptitious touch of glamour.

The menu is creative Mediterranean cuisine, putting a contemporary twist on the traditional at very reasonable prices. An interesting feature is that most of their dishes can be served as half portions or full portions, making it easy to try different dishes or share with your fellow guests. They have also just launched a new sharing platter, which is currently only available at lunchtime. All the dishes have been carefully thought-out, creatively put together and well-balanced, with fresh flavours cutting through any richness.

The kitchen is open from lunchtime through to the evening, so you can dine at any time of the day at Cascada (which might come in handy if you over indulge on their two-for-one cocktail offer in the afternoon!). There is an impressive open wine cellar in the centre of the restaurant that also serves as a great design feature. Their wines are mainly from Spain, but they also offer international wines, and they plan to expand in that department. The service at Cascada is second-to-none.

The young and vibrant general manager, David, is extremely accommodating and friendly, knowing many of his customers by their first names. When we chatted to the chefs, they seemed very passionate about their work and really cared about what the diners thought of their culinary creations.If you have not yet visited Cascada Cocina & Bar, it is certainly one to try, offering everything you would expect from a great dining experience.
