Nestled in the heart of Marbella Old Town, Casanis Bistrot is one of the city’s most popular and beloved restaurants. It’s also one of the few dining spots in town that stay open during the winter months, enjoying a regular clientele of locals.
In addition to its charming, old-fashioned décor and lively atmosphere, this intimate restaurant prides itself with great food and service. It offers traditional French cuisine with a delightful modern twist, but also an excellent selection of wines and tapas, as well as other creative specialties prepared with the freshest local ingredients by some of the most talented chefs around.
Housed in a 150 years old country house, Casanis boasts traditional, charismatic interiors with wooden beam ceilings, terracotta flooring, and unique paintings adorning the walls. The space also serves as a living art workshop, where famous artists such as Aldo Gigli or mosaic specialist Mudarra come to create and display their original artworks.
The restaurant is set on two floors and has an idyllic leafy courtyard, where guests can entertain and relax while being surrounded by plants. When the weather is pleasant, a couple of tables are placed on the pavement outside, inviting people to sit, have a coffee, watch the world go by, and enjoy alfresco summer dining.
Situated right across the street is Casanis’ gourmet shop, where in addition to a lovely selection of handmade products, visitors will also discover a tapas bar and La Casa del Vino de Casanis, which boasts more than 120 bottles of high-quality wine from across the world.
