Messina and Nintai are two more Michelin one star restaurants. The Argentinian chef at Messina, Mauricio Giovanni, creates exciting dishes combining ingredients from his native Latin America with European and Mediterranean flavors. Nintai is an elegant restaurant that focuses on Japanese cuisine, offering two tasting menus. Each dish is constructed from the freshest ingredients and there is a wide selection of sakes. If possible, sit at the bar where the chef prepares each dish in front of you.

An intimate restaurant situated in the old town of Marbella, Skina is anything but old. With cuisine to match its contemporary decor, diners will enjoy a gastronomic experience in this two Michelin starred establishment.
