BEACHLESS CHIRINGUITO ON THE GOLDEN MILE
Lobito de Mar is an urban chiringuito, a cool beachless beach bar and restaurant. A restaurant from the old school, with a traditional, produce-driven menu. A place where an expert on rice dishes and a barbecued fish specialist are key figures.
The tapas bar is one of the key pieces of the chef’s concept, based on the chef’s happiest memories of childhood, of those Saturdays going to market with his parents to buy fresh seafood, of early mornings playing ball with his father on Pozuelo beach, and the first skewers of barbecued fish that he tasted.
BACK TO THE START
Popular and affordable are the key elements, inspired by the traditional home cooking and produce that Dani remembers from his childhood.
Separate bar and restaurant areas, with two separate menus – an informal tapas and light bites menu for all tastes and pockets, and a more formal menu that is strong in seafood, crustaceans and shellfish from across Spain, Andalusian fried fish, barbecued fish skewers, tuna recipes and a wide range of Alicante-style rice dishes.
The 800m2 Lobito de Mar building has, along with El Portalón, become one of the iconic emblems of Marbella. It is decorated by the prestigious studio of Lázaro Rosa-Violán, who was also entrusted with the interior design of BIBO Madrid.
The sea is a constant throughout the premises and creates a lasting impression, where you notice new details the more you look around. High white ceilings provide a spacious sense of light, with the large bar, high and low tables, vegetation and a fish tank all predominant features.
