Costa Cuisine - Mother's Kitchen, Chowka

advert-chowkaTaking an extremely well known restaurant site, and injecting new life and colour into it is never going to be an easy task. Chowka, however, lives up to its predecessor the Polo House and then some. The formerly lavish interior has now been re-vamped to produce a slick and fresh Indian and Andalucian combination that reflects the menu and ideology behind this fantastic new restaurant.

Head Chef Ravi Deulkar has done something special here, fusing local Spanish traditions of tapas and light bites with beautifully traditional Indian cooking. Chowka means “mother´s kitchen” and the menu steers away from such obvious choices as chicken tikki masala, and concentrates instead on local seasonal ingredients and Coastal seafood, to create a social dining experience.

Costa Cuisine - Beyond the Sea

TaylorISSUE Final_ISSUUU67The Sea Grill at Puente Romano has had the make over of make overs. The décor is simply out of this world making it one of the most stylish venues on the Coast. We were dining with some very experienced industry insiders and their opinion was unanimous, this beachside restaurant has a visual wow factor rarely seen elsewhere in the area.

We sipped our ice cold glasses of rose on the newly designed terrace which is now an homage to chic minimalism and when we moved into the huge interior white pagoda with illuminated bar, we were seriously impressed. Designed by the hugely successful British designer Andrew Martin, it is clear that no expense has been spared.

Culinary Capers

Culinary-capers-IIIHaving been engaged in the catering trade for many years, both as a practitioner and a teacher, I have had the privilege of meeting a vast number of very talented people, and also some who are proof that evolution can go in reverse.

At times the intense pressure of the kitchen during a busy service can give rise to incidents which at the time are hair raising but which, when recollected in tranquillity, are the stuff of which comedies are made.

Costa Cuisine - Sense Sensations

TaylorISSUE Final_ISSUUU82At Umami, San Pedro’s latest trendy eatery, everyday ingredients are spruced up and transformed into spectacular, imaginative dishes. Factor in relaxed, clued-up staff, it’s no wonder Umami is such a local hit.

Located in the heart of town, this Scandinavian take on Nobu offers an eclectic range of Asian-influenced dishes, unexpected fusions of classic French and Japanese cuisine and a selection of Mediterranean inspired delights. This pick-and-mix style could easily go horribly wrong, but the cooking is brilliantly executed and the clever combinations really work.

Costa Cuisine - Masala on the Mile

AmandaISSUE ISSUUUFinal59Enjoying a privileged location in the heart of the Golden Mile, Masala is the Coast’s latest addition to its ever-growing repertoire of high-quality Indian eateries. Just like its excellent sister restaurant in Estepona, Marbella Masala maintains a superior quality of food throughout its extensive menu and is well served by its extremely courteous and helpful staff.

Class Act

The innovative French cuisine at the renowned Albert y Simon restaurant in San Pedro is a unique, culinary experience which fuses flavourful, nutritious foods with beautiful presentation. Creating French food to this standard is an art form that takes a lifetime to master, yet requires that time stand still to appreciate its splendour.



Ideally situated on a bustling corner in San Pedro, everything about this restaurant clearly endorses the fact that it is family owned and managed. Award winning chef Albert Benisty works his magic in the kitchen while his brother, Simon, manages the front-ofhouse team.
