IT is literally beautiful food, some of the prettiest dishes served on the coast… and with a venue to match!

IMG_7288With classic Michelin star panache Belgium Master chef Alexandre is a creative genius in the kitchen.

After a decade on the coast at the likes of Casanis and Casa Mono, he set up stunning Restaurant Alexandre – all contemporary lines and hip decorations – nearly two years ago.

Changing the menu by the day and working as seasonally as possible, it is only a matter of time before he wins some plaudits.

A largely undiscovered gem, hidden in a back-street in the hinterland between Estepona and Marbella, expect dishes like scallop carpaccio with seaweed and truffle sauce or poached egg with spinach and chanterelle mushrooms.

His turbot was in a word ‘wow’, while vitello tonnato with white veal and tuna with capers, gherghins, radishes and parmesan shavings was a delight.
