El Lago is an excellent restaurant that pays attention to service and the quality of food it serves. It has an excellent wine selection. We make it a point to dine here at least once every time we visit.

It depends if you go for day or night, its different but you don´t have a dresscode. If you want you can phone to the restaurant and ask anything to Antonio. It is for me one of the best places to go in Marbella
