After an active day a delicious diner awaits you under the old fig tree!
Andalucía has a broad and delicious cuisine and has been influenced by its rich heritage of Romans, Arabs and Jews. The diversity of dishes is huge from the Iberian pigs inland to a great variety of fish along the Atlantic and Mediterranean coastline.
Olive oil and olives are abundant, vegetables still have their real taste and freshly pressed orange juice is bliss. Tapas originated from Andalucía and, like gazpacho are known worldwide. Every restaurant makes its dishes in its own specific way using recipes carried on from mother to child.
There are many restaurants and bars near El Molino Santisteban that especially during lunchtime are busy with locals. Along the beaches and in Marbella and Málaga there are a great variety of eateries offering simple grilled fish or culinary masterpieces. At night it can be busy here as well.
You can have dinner at El Molino Santisteban as well and every night a 3-course dinner is made on request. When the weather is nice, Gerard serves dinner on one of the terraces outside and when it is a little bit colder dinner is served in the mill room of the watermill. Madeline uses fresh products from the region and the cuisine is Mediterranean. For many guests it is really relaxing to draw up to the table after a day of exploring and activity. No need to go out again! There is a wine list with affordable wines and other drinks.
For the children at the hotel a meal is served at a convenient time in the mill room at a large table with all the other children at the hotel.
Guests who don’t want the 3-course dinner can order pasta, a green salad, a cheese plate or tapas plate instead.
Madeline and Gerard also organise cooking workshops for groups renting the whole place. An outside kitchen is set up beneath the covered terrace and the home-made dishes are enjoyed together at a large table in the garden.
Should you be inspired yourself, there is also a guest kitchen at your disposal!
