    Another amazing meal, bringing more "newbies" to the fabulous food and family at Cafe Marbella! Our "go to" place when we're looking to fill our bellies and souls with fabulous tapas! EVERYONE should become "regulars"!

    This was my first time at Cafe Marbella. A friend and I shared 4 entrees and two desserts, brought in a bottle of wine ($10 corkage fee), and our bill came to $72. We thought it was a GREAT value! The food was excellent--not one thing we didn't like--and we could actually talk to one another. The noise was just "talking noise," not loud music or blaring TVs. I have already recommended Cafe Marbella to another friend. I will definitely be back!

    I almost don’t want to share about this place lol! No, but really it is a hidden gem! The tapas, prices, & service was fantastic! Normally, there seems to be an older crowd and never packed, however it was valentines day weekend and it was quite the opposite. Despite the busy night, Marbella’s was on point! My hubby and I had a great date night!

    Incredible creative tapas presented thoughtfully and beautifully. Warm service. Great affordable wine list. Homemade desserts. And they have remained consistently great for going on a decade of frequent visits now.

    Not crazy about the small plates. The bill was kind of high with all the dishes ad added up. The spinach salad had way to much dressing. Other then those issues, the food and service was good.

    Dining at Cafe Marbella is always a wonderful experience. We began with the special avocado salad--one of our favorites--and ended with a slice of goat cheesecake. In between we enjoyed 2 specials, crab stuffed avocados and orange roughy. The food and presentation were superb. If you like tapas, you need to visit this restaurant.
