I was lucky enough to find the Marrush Lebanese restaurant in Puerto Banús – in which I dined there twice. There are a few requirements that make a good meal – the food, atmosphere, wine menu, and dinner companion. While the Marrush scored high on reasonably priced good food, the wine menu was limited, I was fortunate enough to be joined by a friend Raffaele Beckett, an adventurer of sorts who kept the conversation flowing with stories how his candle factory burnt down, how some shady carpet merchants tried to drug him India while he beat a hasty retreat through a crowded market that broke into pandemonium, this all made for vibrant conversation and a good feast.
The Marrush also offers outdoor seating with a pleasant small-town atmosphere, we ordered a variety of dishes (as one should when eating Middle Eastern food) that included sambusek, hummus, fattoush, tabbouleh, cheese arayes, and Mashawi (chicken, and lamb cubes).
We were pleasantly pleased with everything we ate and the grilled lamb and chicken was subtly spiced with local herbs and very tender.
I would recommend Marrush restaurant for good value for money – especially in a city that is in most cases bordering on the ridiculously overpriced.
