Zozoï, Marbella – The Culinary Haven In The Old Town

On the historic Plaza Altamirano, in the enchanting old town of Marbella, one finds Zozoï, a relaxed fine-dining restaurant that has truly stood the test of time, becoming one of the city’s favourites.

The restaurant is one of the historic buildings of the city centre, capturing the Mediterranean charm of this area. Zozoï design is an eclectic mix of vintage and contemporary, with a choice of dining areas from the outside courtyard, the intimate interior, and a large interior garden courtyard, with a glass roof.

The Luxury Editor discovered the latest chapter in this restaurant’s culinary story, where the narrative is a tale of creativity and seasonality, with an international menu and off-menu dishes that evolves with the changing seasons. From the simplicity of homemade guacamole to the decadence of imperial osetra caviar, each dish promises to captivate guests

International Menu

The menu, an interesting mix of Mediterranean and international dishes, showcases quality ingredients and culinary creativity. So, we ordered a cocktail, took our time, and enjoyed making some delicious choices.

From the choice of starters, such as pizza bread, kalamata olives, hummus with breadsticks, homemade guacamole with nachos, edamame, and bellota ham, we tried the Flemish style Asparagus (perfectly cooked, served with a typical Belgium Butter Sauce, Eggs and Parsley), the Seared Wild Scallops (again a very generous portion, and delicately prepared, preserving the texture and flavour), the Shrimp Pastis (rich, bold sauce makes this dish very memorable) and also Duck Foie Gras ( an indulgent dish that remains popular here in Spain).

The salad options include warm goat cheese salad, Greek salad, and king crab salad, each featuring the chef’s creative blend of ingredients and flavours.

This restaurant has Belgian heritage, so you can’t visit without trying the steaks and the fries. The Black Jack tenderloin is prepared in a hot skillet, and alongside is a creamy black pepper and Jack Daniel’s sauce, which was surprisingly good – subtle and not over-powering. The Galician Beef Entrecote is a must – superb quality and bursting with flavour.

The puddings list included classics like Crème Brûlée, and a satisfying Tarte Tatin, Pavlova, and a signature Tiramisu.

Old Town favourite

Zozoï has created a menu that has broad appeal, and each dish in our experience is prepared with flair and executed with finesses. Dishes are generous and the service is friendly – making Zozoï a popular and busy restaurant. It’s the kind of destination where you can be confident to eat well and enjoy with friends and loved ones in a relaxed, friendly and lovely ambience.

Next time you visit Marbella, add Zozoï to your dining destinations and discover a charming corner of old town where the essence of Andalusia meets the spirit of upscale international cuisine.
