Welcome to Let’s Eat Marbella
THERE IS NO EXCUSE for the vandalism and grafitti aimed at the owner of Olivias in La Cala de Mijas after the tragice death of their doorman , Jose Rafael Pisano Pardo, who suffered serious injuries after he was knocked unconscious while attempting to stop an argument between customers. What caused the fight (which appeared to be between two local ex-pats) is still unknown, but I hardly think that blaming the owner Elliot Wright and branding him a murderer makes any sense.
THE ICONIC BUILDING CLOSED FOR YEARS, known as Aresbank is due to re-open as a restaurant/entertainment venue. Something I always said I'd love to do. Why it took so long I don't know. Can't wait.
IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN. MasterChef is back and I for one never cease to be amazed at the talent of some of the amateur “home cooks”that appear on the programme. It’s only the first round and already I have picked a couple that I think will go far. It was good to see the food critic and writer William Sitwell appearing setting a task for the competitors. He is one of the few real critics as opposed to a lot of the wannabees. John Torode is as always on top form but how he puts up with that idiot Greg Wallace whose knowledge of food is limited to the words of, taste, spicy, sweet, peppery, bitter, etc. He really should have stuck to selling vegetables. I’m sure he’s a really nice guy, but……..!

KEMPINSKI HOTEL BAHÍA MARKS ITS 24TH ANNIVERSARY THIS MARCH.
Where has the time gone? It doesn’t seem that long ago when I saw them start building it.With spectacular views out over the Mediterranean sea, its unique beachfront setting and the hotel designed by probably the Coast’s most famous architect, Melvin Villarroel . With its extensive gardens and uninterrupted views towards Africa, Gibraltar and the Málaga coastline, it soon gained a reputation as a paradise for both locals and international visitors alike. From welcoming royalty, heads of state, celebrities, musicians and film stars. As the first international-branded five-star hotel to open in the area, Kempinski Hotel Bahía has a relationship with the town of Estepona that has grown over the years. A number of staff are also celebrating their 24th work anniversary at the hotel as well.
During 2018, the hotel’s key spaces, including the lobby and two restaurants, underwent an extensive refurbishment, creating a modern and inviting dining hub, El Paseo del Mar, which consists of Black Rose The Bar, Baltazár Bar & Grill and Spiler Beach Club, all of which are open to the public. Spiler Beach Club has recently become a popular destination for those looking to escape the crowds and enjoy a more sophisticated yet laid-back pace of life. Connected directly to the promenade which runs along the coast, the beach club has seen a surge in guests dropping in for a drink and a bite to eat whilst out walking or cycling along this enchanting path.
