Daughter's evaluation: Koko beach Marbella had bad service and was really slow. It took about an hour just to make a simple ham and cheese sandwich. The fish was frozen even though the restaurant was next to the beach. We didn't try dessert since the other food was so bad. Grade: 4.0
Mom's evaluation: Koko beach Marbella is located just on the beach side of the go-kart park Funny Beach.
I have to admit that I was pretty disappointed, however when we got
there all the tables were reserved, so maybe I´m just the only one that
feels this way.
The restaurant has a generally nice atmosphere that includes the chic sunbeds that you´ll find at some of the other swankier places in town. We didn´t get one of these, but just sat at a simple plastic table with plastic chairs. The place really looked like it was all booked, so I was pleased that the staff was quick to accommodate us and quickly brought out another table and chairs....even a high chair for the baby in our party. We were stuck at Funny Beach without a car, so it was really convenient for us to feed the kids here.
We all ordered pretty simple dishes. The kids wanted pasta and sandwiches, and the adults took fish. Unfortunately, the orders took so long and the kids were getting pretty antsy. The first dishes to finally arrived were the fish dishes, and we were really disappointed that the fish was clearly frozen. It had a rubbery texture and absolutely no flavor. This is really surprising for a chiringuito (beach restaurant) which is known to be the best place to order seafood.
Unfortunately, the last in our party to get their meal was the youngest and hungriest. What´s more, he ordered a sandwich that took one hour to build. We couldn´t believe it.
On top of it all, the service was really bad. Our waitress seemed to forget everything and was not very sympathetic. So, if you must eat at Koko Beach, order the fried fish like anchovies, calamaries or grilled shrimp. I have a feeling that this may be better than what we chose and possibly faster. And if you have an option, SKIP IT. Grade: 4.0
