it was last minute deciusion to do the Friday dinner there at one of my favorite spots of Marbella, Corner fo the virgin. Eladio gave us an interesting menu, and also founded interesting to be in one of the oldest restaurants in Marbella.
Eladio´s father opened a bar in 1961 and in 1965 opened the 3rd restaurant in Marbella, still open till now.
Food is really nice anad for sure it will not be the last time we go there!!!
We had a great time, we had the inside all for us, waiters were very attending and quick, food delicious and they did not mind all our wadering around talking, photos all the time in the middle of their way!
UPDATE We had never been disapointed in our visits, so when we decided to get married, we knew where we were going to eat. I knew I did not have to worry about anything, service was perfect, food was excellent .. I felt at home :-) thanks Eladio for making our day even more special :-))
Great service with a smile.
We had a group of over 55 people, & so had pre-booked everyone's menu selection. Unlimited drinks were negotiated in their price, making ordering drinks very easy & hassle-free.
The waiters were most accommodating, bringing in the plates one after the other.
Food was very tasty & well-presented. This place has great variety for vegetarians too.
Starters to share - selection served as tapas, home made croquettes with ali oli sauce, lemon mousse.
Favorite Dish: The Cold Gazpacho was my favourite - mainly because I'd read about it but never had it before!!
It was a smooth soup however, later in Sevilla I was served the soup with a platter of various chopped ingredients, which I could select to be added to the soup.
The restaurant does not work on thursdays. The food is rather good, but we couldn't choose something as an example of restaurant's masterpiece. Just food and nothing more. Good for having a meal on your excursion to the old town. The stuff is not very friendlly, just a litlle bit friendly :-)
When you are partying with other VTers, this is the place to go! I loved the situation and the look of the place. Very Spanish, very welcoming and an awful lot of fun!
Favorite Dish: Paella. Done properly, this is the best of all Spanish dishes. Not easy to cook, it has to be done in a certain order. I'll leave that to the professionals.
Friday, May 8 VT Dinner Meeting at RESTAURANTE CASA ELADIO.
Founded in 1965, this is one of the oldest and most traditional restaurants in the area. Their rich and varied traditional Spanish cuisine (Cocina Espanol ) is based on fish, meat and rice dishes.
Favorite Dish: The Menu for the Friday night Dinner Meeting at Casa Eladio was as follows:
Starters (Tapas ) to share: Croquettes in olive sauce & Pate' with toast
Pork Sirloin in Stroganoff or Cadiz style Tuna
Dessert: Lemon Mousse
Drinks: Red / White wine ( 1 bottle for every 2 persons ), Beer, sodas & water
Cost per person: 30 Euros
This was the first time I had eaten in a restaurant in Spain, a pleasant establishment that specialises in local Andalucian cuisine.
Favorite Dish: Gazpacho soup - an Andalucian speciality made from tomatoes, onion, cumin, lemon juice and garlic among other ingredients, very tasty. A word of warning for those that don't know - Gazpacho soup is served COLD .. don't embarrass yourself by complaining to the waiter!
A three course meal inclusive of drinks will cost you approximately 30 Euros, not cheap but you get a LOT of food for your money.
Kudos to Carmen and Stace for finding this charming restaurant in the old town on such short notice, even though there were so many of us, the food was excellent and the service was good!
Favorite Dish: The menu was fixed since we were such a large group, I was starving (I'm an American, we don't eat dinner at 9 pm LOL) so when the appetizers started coming out I was overjoyed, plates of Iberian sausage and bread and one of my favorite Spanish tapas, croquettes with ali oli sauce, I ate so much of the appetizers that I'm afraid I was stuffed by the time the dinner came out!
But I did make an effort to eat my entree, a pork sirloin in stroganoff sauce which was delicious!
We had the Friday VT meeting at this location. There was wine, beer and fun for everyone! This was a great location and the staff treated the crazy lot of Paparazzi VT'ers very well. I don't recall seeing even one staff member rip their shirt off and run screaming like a madman into the street!!!
They made sure that wine and water was always available and didn't bother with silly questions like "would you like another bottle of wine?"
Favorite Dish: They served a tapas style appetizer course and a very nice main course. The meal was good and the atmosphere exquisite!
As a disclaimer on on the price rating, the restaurant gave us an all inclusive price, including the drinks. It was well worth the money spent! (and their regular menu is not as expensive)
This was the first restaurant choosed for the VT meeting,we had a very nice dinner,but the service was a little bit slow,maybe we were too many Vt'ers at same time? LOL!!!
But the food was excellent.
This was our menu:
Iberian Cured sausages and Ham,
Home made croquettes with alli oli sauce,
lettuce with anchovies,
Pate & Toast
Pork Sirloin in Stroggonoff Sauce
or Tuna Cadiz Style
