Max Beach in Riviera del Sol, Mijas Costa
We love Max Beach and its authentic boho style and laid-back atmosphere, not to mention the fair prices. The restaurant is located just by the beach in Riviera del Sol in Mijas Costa, with easy access to the A-7, whether you are driving towards Málaga or Marbella. Max Beach is actually next to one of our favourite upcoming property areas, Rocas del Mar, where we have invested in properties with a lot of potential, which we have afterwards reformed and sold.
There are several seating possibilities at Max Beach, all depending on which view you prefer while having your magnificent meal. You can enjoy the sea view from the terrace, balcony, or the cosy inside area – or from the sunbeds on the beach in the summer. You can also get a table outside by the pool area where you can hear the live music, and see the dancers, or the DJ, who often performs at the end of the pool.
Max Beach has everything; Christmas meals and show, New Year’s Eve dinner with entertainment, breakfast, Sunday roast, drinks, and of course, the main menu, which includes sushi, salads, lobster, pizza, burger, grilled salmon, lamb, Angus beef, rib eye, and much more. In addition, there is a parking valet, exciting events and entertainment throughout the year, and mouth-watering food for a surprisingly reasonable price.
Breathe in Puerto Banús in Marbella
You have probably heard of Puerto Banús in Marbella before, the exclusive marina with luxury yachts considered a playground for the wealthy and one of the best-known tourist destinations in the world. In Puerto Banús, you will find a beautiful, stylish, trendy restaurant named Breathe. A description will not do the restaurant justice, as it is a special experience dining at Breathe. The restaurant is unique and wonderful, with a multifaceted fresh-thinking approach to food.
Breathe consists of several spaces to reflect your different moods. There is a covered terrace overlooking the garden area, with zones where you can sit, relax, and enjoy the garden with cascading water features which are an integrated part of the design. There is also a bar area and a main dining room, which is the most formal part of the restaurant. The latter has its own panoramic terrace with a rooftop cocktail bar with views over Puerto Banús and La Concha Mountain. Below the restaurant, you will find the associated artisan café and bakery called Ground.
Now, we have established that the area is the world-famous Puerto Banús in Marbella, the restaurant is unique with a fantastic design, so I bet you are wondering what kind of food to expect. Breathe’s menu includes oysters, caviar, tartare, lobster, salads, mussels, ravioli, seafood tagliatelle, wagyu burger or brisket, entrecote, tomahawk steak, as well as vegetarian and vegan options. Thus, whether you have a home in Marbella or just visiting for the holidays, we can highly recommend Breathe for an unforgettable gastronomic experience.
Trocadero in Benalmádena
It is no secret that we are crazy about Trocadero, which is owned by TrocaderoGroup, and therefore, one out of several beautifully designed restaurants located by the beach in Benalmádena, Marbella, Estepona, and Sotogrande. Since both Per Mønsted and Jacob Johansen, the two founders of House of Mojo, own properties in Benalmádena, they often pay a visit to the local Trocadero in Torrequebrada.
We often talk about buying and investing in properties in Benalmádena because it is a lovely city with something for every taste. Whenever we show potential clients homes in the area, we always recommend a nice meal and drink at Trocadero, which is the most exclusive restaurant in Benalmádena overlooking the Mediterranean sea.
Trocadero is a classy restaurant mixed with a relaxing beach club atmosphere thanks to the outstanding location, the magnificent architecture and the thoughtful decoration, as well as the various open-air spaces such as the large wooden terrace with a fantastic view over the sea. There is a rooftop bar, direct access to the beach, parking for the clients, and impressive signature cocktails, which are best described as unique, creative, and with a taste that stimulates all your senses.
We save the best for last! If you are not hungry yet, then we warn you. The cuisine at Trocadero is just as exceptional as the place, whether you choose one of the classic Mediterranean dishes or one of the more international courses. On the menu, you can choose between a variety of Iberian meat, delicious cheese, rice dishes with seafood, grilled fish or meat, burger, deep-fried food and more. The presentation of the food is, as with everything else, perfectly in line with the style of Trocadero. However, it is not just gastronomy that attracts people to Trocadero; it is also a popular place for events and weddings on the Costa del Sol.
