Florian’s Puerto Cabopino

by Morris Bishop
(San Pedro de Alcantara)




They say pedigree is everything, so when I hear of a chef on the costa del sol that
was voted by the Guide Michelin over a decade ago to be the most promising chef for a particular year, then this is a must for me to sample his cooking. Florian moved from France to the costa’s about 6 years ago and opened his front line restaurant in the the Marina, not with French cuisine, but Italian!

Squeezed between La dispenser and a passage way you could easily miss the place.
There are two parts to the dining room, one overlooking the port with 9 covers on the patio
(with no sun shades) and 40 inside and a separate room with a well stocked bar and a further dozen places. The atmosphere is that of a comfortable Bistro, which I found pleasing. A comprehensive, but imaginative menu with most of the things you would expect to find for an Italian meal, plus some little gems! We chose a Salmon Tartar with Avocado and Wasabi Coriander cream, and Beef Carpaccio with rocket and Parmesan shavings for starters, and a Seafood Tagliatelly with Tiger prawns, and a surf & Turf dish of Rib eye steak and gratinated lobster bits in a lobster shell which I really could have done with more of, or I would have willingly accepted some lesser shellfish.. But even allowing for this small niggle, all four dishes were ? "mouth wateringly" delicious, indeed both starters were quite exceptional. We finish with a tasty Apple Strudel

You will find Florian’s in Puerto Cabopino on the left side of the Marina (one from the end) They NOW open for lunch and dinners. Monday is there rest day. 16€ 3 course Menu del dia. Average 3 course meal with wine 36€ but there are many other inexpensive dishes including Pizza’s. they even have an earlybird menu (before 19:30) Philip and Anna are the helpful staff.
