Tempora Restaurant, Old Town Marbella
Restaurant Review, December 2014
It was a very chilly evening which precluded us from eating outside, and they had a party of 12 inside, but, the owner, Anders, managed to squeeze us in against the bar. This filled Tempora's 14 covers inside, with a pair of hardy diners wrapped in blankets taking up 2 of the 20 seats outside.
From the menu of 9 starters, 4 fish and 4 meat mains, we chose grilled Scallop salad with Asparagus, Smoked Salmon, and a passion fruit dressing, and Steak Tartare marinated in Dijon mustard and with red onion, topped with Manchego cheese shavings, and for mains, Magret of Duck in a red fruit sauce with sautéed vegetables, and for me, what was to be a Sole, but because of informing Andres of a intolerance I have to olive oil when used in cooking, and my misunderstanding that he said that the chef could cook this meuniere, that I ended up with my only disappointment of the meal, to this day I don’t know how it was cooked!
Every thing else was to a high standard of cuisine, beautifully served, and flavoursome.
Tempora is open for dinners only and is in the passage way of Calle Tetuanin, Marbella Old Town.
