“Jolie surprise”

Nous sommes entre par hasard, notre hôtel etant a 2 pas, et nous avons eu une très jolie surprise. Nous avons été recus tres gentiment, dans un cadre sympathique ou le chef français et son épouse d'origine marocaine ont su mélanger leurs cultures respectives avec beaucoup de goût. Les plats sont simples, mais tres bien exécutés, avec des produits de grande qualité et frais. La vaisselle est originale et de belle facture. Il est évident qu'ils ont apporté beaucoup de soin à l'installation de leur restaurant. Comme il s'agit également d'un bar à vin, il faut précisé que la carte des vins est magnifique. Un grand bravo à ce couple Qui mérite amplement les éloges qui leurs sont faites. Comme nous sommes arrivés de bonne heure, il y avait peu de monde, et le chef et son épouse sont venus parler avec nous, et nous les en remercions car nous avons découvert un couple adorable, courageux et rigoureux dans leur travail.

“The best Steak tartare"

This is such a wonderful place in the Marbella Golden Mile. If you haven't tried it yet, do it. The menu offers a great choice of salads, french specialities, crepes and pizzas. As the title of my review says, my all time favorite together with the couscous in winter is the steak tartare, the best I have ever tried.

The ice-creams are amazing, service is good, owners and staff really friendly and attentive. And they have an amazing selection of french wines, champagne and spirits together with cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks & freshly squeezed juices.
Can't wait to go back!!

“A Gem”

This restaurant opened August 2013 and we were delighted to find it last night. Four of us started with a drink on the patio. As this is a French bistro and has an extensive French wine list, we chose a Duval Leroy champagne. Two of us enjoyed an exceptional filet steak, one of us had a salad and one the pizza cooked in a traditional pizza oven. The food was excellent with service to match.

The dining area at the back of the restaurant was peaceful and surrounded with plants. There are numerous restaurants in the area but Tchin Tchin is a breath of fresh air. Whether you want to enjoy a quiet drink or a meal this place stands out. The prices are very reasonable, the staff excellent and it has a lovely ambience.
