Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa, member of The Leading Hotels of the World, is a haven of elegant Andalucian luxury nestled along Spain’s sun-soaked “Golden Mile” at the very heart of the Costa del Sol.
Located between Marbella and Puerto Banus, Puente Romano offers a private beach, tennis courts, several swimming pools and a choice of eight restaurants.
StyleNest recently had the pleasure of experiencing the Sea Grill, their upscale beachside restaurant nestled between palm trees and overlooking both the swimming pool and the Mediterranean sea.
Walking into the Sea Grill restaurant, the stripped and whitewashed wooden floors, ceilings and beams create a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere, whilst the high pitched roof and floor-to-ceiling windows blend the inside with the outside seamlessly and flood the space with light.
Trendy lounge music played in the background whilst well-dressed couples drank their wine in the soft sea breeze on the beautifully styled outdoor terrace.
We were guided to our table – a beautifully arranged table for two with breathtaking views over the ocean, the sound of lapping waves the soundtrack to our lazy afternoon.
After toasting the perfect afternoon with a delicate and fresh blush (house) rose, we headed inside to admire the extensive buffet.
The Sea Grill restaurant is well-known for their generous selection of fresh salads and their fresh fish and meat dishes cooked to perfection in their renowned Tandoor Oven or their Charcoal Grill.
Overwhelmed with choice, we decided to start at the salad bar where you can have a chef individually prepare your perfect salad along with your preferred dressing (using specially selected oils and vinegars), or choose from the selection on offer – including roasted peppers, beetroot salad with cumin, aubergine salad, spicy mango, cauliflower salad, and fried courgettes to name just a few!
Needless to say, we decided to try a little bit of everything and returned to our table with our plates piled high.
Next, we headed to the fish bar where chefs were hard at work grilling giant tiger prawns, preparing fresh fish and cooking an impressive looking paella.
Again we tried a little bit of everything and tucked into some Spanish “almejas” (fried whitebait), followed by plump and juicy steamed mussels, firm and juicy charcoal grilled giant prawns and fresh and delicate sea bass – all cooked to perfection.
We enjoyed our meal and our bottle of rose overlooking the ocean and it couldn’t have been a more perfect afternoon.
A gastronomic experience using only the finest and freshest ingredients and set in chic, elegant and romantic surroundings, we can’t recommend the Sea Grill highly enough.
