TWO Costa del Sol restaurants are among 31 Spanish venues to be awarded Michelin Stars this year. 

BACK, in Marbella, has been awarded its first ever star while nearby eatery Skina, received its second. 

It comes after the Spanish Michelin Guide Gala 2024 was held in Barcelona on Tuesday night.  

Dozens of restaurants from across the country were honoured with new Michelin stars and the Costa del Sol shines through as a hotspot for culinary excellence.

Meanwhile, Skina, also in Marbella, is a tiny venue with just four tables but still packs a punch with its ‘sincere cuisine that strives to put a new spin on traditional Andalusian recipes.’ 

The restaurants join the Costa’s roster of Michelin star venues alongside Nintai and Messina, in Marbella and Sollo, in Fuengirola.
