Fusion Food in Marbella Featured

 Traditional Spanish tastes and ingredients get a fresh twist with these fusion restaurants in Marbella. 

by Jessica Bowler

Spanish cuisine is renowned for its variety and fresh flavours. While there is plenty of fantastic food to be had that’s 100 percent español, it can be a bit repetitive seeing the same tapas staples on menu after menu. That’s where these restaurants come in. Rather than simply sticking with tried-and-true classics, they add in a twist from further abroad to give old favourites a new spin. They still highlight their Spanish roots, whether that’s by incorporating the best ingredients from around the country or transforming an old recipe into an entirely new dish, while giving you an entirely new dining experience.


BACK! Tapas Bar & Restaurant
With a philosophy of always staying up-to-date with the latest trends from around the world, BACK! adds a breath of fresh air to the tired tapas scene. Their dishes are rooted in tapas favourites, but each has a twist of its own that means each dish tastes like something entirely new. With an ever-rotating menu, you’ll never have the same two meals here. Try their ‘Anarchy Salmorejo,’ a new take on the cool tomato soup that features smoked sardines, or the oxtail gyozas fried Andalusian style to start. For your main, why not order the Iberian pork with star anise sauce?

Mosh Fun Kitchen
This restaurant concocts a blend of great food and drinks, with a stellar soundtrack for a fantastic conceptual experience. Their menu has a heavy Asian touch, with Japanese buns, spring rolls and sushi all making an appearance, and fillings that are a mix of Asian and Spanish. When you’ve had your fill of food, stop by the chill-out terrace and enjoy a hookah session while listening to the coolest music in town.

Your regular Spanish calamari get a boost with salt and Szechuan pepper, while their sea bass fillets come with red wine butter sauce and udon noodles. Their signature dish is the 24-hour slow- cooked short rib with sweet potato and jalapeño puree and kimchi. Every night, the restaurant has a live DJ.

Besaya Beach
The views of the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean provide reason enough to go to Besaya Beach. The menu of this restaurant on the sands of Coral Beach highlights the culinary riches of the Mediterranean. For particularly refined palates they offer the Rincón del Gourmet (The Gourmet Corner), which features the very best from their menu. You’ll find plenty of Spanish favourites, like fresh salt-baked sea bass, paella and meat dishes. After you’ve enjoyed your meal, unwind at the restaurant’s chill-out bar as you listen to a chic soundtrack from top DJs.
