Set in the heart of Puerto Banus, Tibu’s Rooftop restaurant offers their customers a relaxed, VIP atmosphere underneath the stars until they are ready to dance the night away in Tibu, one of Puerto Banus’ most popular and most established nightclubs. The Mediterranean inspired restaurant offers a unique selection of fish, meat and vegetarian dishes, taking traditional recipes that one step further. Our reviewers described the Rooftop restaurant as “alive” a place to relax and enjoy fantastic food and cocktails with friends.
Marbella undoubtedly has some of the best tasting seafood on offer across the coast and Tibu’s Rooftop restaurant takes full advantage of it. The Mediterranean inspired menu is almost dominated by seafood dishes, which is expected due to the quality of seafood in and around Marbella. To kick off the evening our reviewers sampled a selection of seafood starters which were on offer, including the Tuna Tataki which was served in a soy, sesame and lemon grass sauce. The tuna had a delicate and smooth texture, the combined ingredients within the sauce enriched the flavour of the fish, constructing a light beginning to the evening´s meal. Additionally, another seafood starter which went down a treat with our reviewers was the Spicy King Prawns Thai Style. If you’re a fan of prawns then this is definitely the dish to order. The combination of spices infused into the tomato based sauce left tastebuds tingling. Similar to the Tuna Tataki, the spicy king prawns left our reviewers feeling satisfied by the light starter but ready to continue and see what else Tibu had in store.
We were advised by staff to sample the chef’s signature dish Ravioli Mock Tender with Beef and Foie Filling, winner of ‘the best dish in Seville’ 2015 award. The precise presentation of the main course was impressive, ever so delicately garnished with microscopic flowers and mouthwatering pomegranate seeds. The Italian inspired main course was filled with bursts of flavour specifically from the tender beef which filled the ravioli parcel. The gravy based jus completed the overall dish and although it was an unusual recommendation, something our reviewers had never tried before, it was definitely apparent why it was award winning. However for those who prefer to stay safe there are some fantastic, yet simpler options on the menu, such as the Sea Bass which is served with an assortment of vegetables in a white wine sauce. Mediterranean cuisine is typically known for using fresh fish and moderate amounts of wine to create dishes which are rich in flavour. The Sea Bass undoubtedly offers all these components, creating a light, but heavenly main course.
After sampling both a starter and a main course it was unlikely our reviewers weren’t going to try their best to squeeze a desert in after seeing what sweet treats were on offer. Our reviewers enjoyed a warm white chocolate soup, we can already tell what you’re thinking, chocolate soup? Believe it or not it was the most flavourful desert, which was accompanied by fresh, seasonal berries. This simplistic, yet unique recipe had some cause for concern amongst our reviewers when it arrived at the table, however, it was definitely a gamble worth taking. The contrast in textures complimented each other, almost working as a palate cleanser to complete such a fantastic meal. However, if you’re not feeling adventurous and fancy a safer option, the Chocolate Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream also won over our reviewers sweet tooth. The rich chocolate brownie was balanced in flavour when combined with creamy vanilla ice cream and raspberry coulis. A perfect end to the most amazing meal.
Tibu’s rooftop restaurant delivered an overall outstanding performance. The charismatic staff made our reviewers feel extremely welcome. The food was faultless to say the least and we were lucky enough to be given the pleasure of meeting the head chef to thank him personally for a fabulous meal.
