I joined this site just to post about this restaurant.
The other half and I had a late summer holiday this year in Marbella. We ate at Blue Palm a couple of nights and thought it was fantastic! They had a quiz night on Friday (we didn't win) but they had great prizes- cash and rounds of drinks. What could be better?!
Their menu is great. My partner had the Blue Palm burger and said it was the best burger he had tasted for a long time! I had an omelette, which was perfectly cooked, although I couldn't eat it all. It must have been made with at least 4 eggs! plus a portion of chips! They have an open kitchen, which I really like because I have had a few bad experiences with food in Spain. It's good to see a clean and tidy kitchen. We also went for a roast on the Sunday. This wasn't my choice, as I don't usually like a roast while on holiday but I was very surprised at how nice it was. The beef was cooked wonderfully- with a little bit of pink to it and the veg was so fresh! They had the rugby on as well, which was great.
The staff are brilliant. They are so friendly but still professional. Blue Palm's real assets are the owners. We think they are a couple. The man is one of the chefs and also does the quiz night and the woman acts as a sort of front of house. Both are fantastic! The man is a nutter- very outgoing and hilarious- we loved him! The woman is so friendly and really goes out of her way to make you feel at home. It felt like we were dining in their own home. She also had some toys and colouring for the children on the table near us, which I thought was a nice touch. The hubby left with a bit of a crush on her, I think!
The atmosphere was great- it was busy even for the end of september and everyone seemed to be having a good time. There was great banter between the staff too. It just felt like we were at a party. You can choose to join in if you want or you can just sit quietly and they serve you in peace. It's just the perfect combination. I have no idea how they do it!
Has anybody else been there?
It would be interesting to see if everyone's experience were as good as ours or if we were just lucky?
We are looking forward to going back just after christmas for another roast!
