Just 15 minutes from Marbella, Castillo de Monda offers great views over the Andalucian country side. Find yourself a spot on the spacious terrace, an intimate corner of the tropical roof garden or have a drink with tapas at the bar. Enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine on the patio or book a table at the Albacar restaurant for some fine dining. With chef Jaap Schaafsma in charge of the kitchen at Castillo de Monda, guests are assured of fine dining in an informal setting and international cuisine with a Mediterranean twist at the Albacar restaurant. This spacious, light and airy dining area has all the modern comforts but the Moorish vibe is present everywhere in the tiling and archways of the interior to the fountains and patio garden layout of the exterior to create an exotic ambience and an extra special dining experience. Furthermore, while meat and fish eaters are well catered for, there are numerous vegetarian options on offer, and if you have any specific dietary requirements or allergies, please let us know in advance so that we can do our very best to make sure you enjoy your meal with us. Join us ‘en groupe’ or bring a date!
