From the time our parking attendant greets you, to you walking through perfumed pergolas leading to the entrance of our internationally renowned restaurant, we want you to savour the sensations that dining at Villa Tiberio bring. Owned and run by fabled restaurateur, Sandro Morelli (ex Ritz and Cavendish Hotels in London, and the former owner of Fulham Road's legendary Barbarella 1 and 11 restaurants), Villa Tiberio is not just a fabulous eatery, it is a meeting place. Royalty, diplomats, and international celebrities could just as easily be dining at the next table as holidaymakers or local residents.
Photographs of Sean Connery, Bill Wyman, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Shirley Bassey and a host of leading personalities line the walls of the luxurious interior, reminding guests that, like many things in life, the restaurant business is built on personal relationships. For over 25 years, Sandro and the dedicated team at this legendary Marbella eatery have ensured diners come back - time and again - to enjoy a perfect meal in exquisite surroundings. Client satisfaction is as high on our list of priorities as the extensive menu Italian and international dishes made from the finest fresh ingredients and the extensive bodega with Spanish, French and Italian wines, champagnes and spirits to suit all tastes.
Opened in 1989, Villa Tiberio's location, just a whisker away from The Marbella Club Hotel, is ideal. Surrounded by tall trees, the villa set in sumptuous grounds could never be overlooked or dominated by high-rise buildings. Symbolising the best of Italian and Mediterranean hospitality, Villa Tiberio has an added extra. The unique Morelli touch, which guarantees dining in the coast's most beautiful gardens will be the highlight of any trip to Marbella.
Imagine a Mediterranean palazzo surrounded by lush vegetation, a menu with such a wide choice it suits all palates, a cellar that brings a sparkle to wine lovers' eyes.
That's Villa Tiberio, the 18-year old restaurant known for its high standards and faultless service, where owner Sandro Morelli looks after clients as if they are guests in his own home. Notwithstanding the extensive menu, a note at the bottom asks clients to ask for their favourite dish. Sandro points out that you can never offer a typical menu for Marbella as it is so cosmopolitan. "What we are trying to do is offer the best that Spain produces, which our chefs incorporate into the Italian and international recipes."
The pasta is home made, the sauces rich and full of flavour, the osso bucco, made with Dutch veal, is finger licking good.
Even the fettuccine salmone is made with the finest Scottish smoked salmon. Capesanti e gamberoni alla thermidor (scallops and jumbo prawns served in a cream and brandy sauce); porchetta alla Villa Tiberio (crispy roast suckling pig): anitra all'orange (duck baked with orange and curaçao liqueur) plus baby lamb braised in Barola wine are only a few of the signature dishes that have made the restaurant such a popular rendezvous.
And if that isn't enough, a 1938 Chateau Margaux, a Romanée Conti Grand Cru 1973, Vega Sicilia, Sassicaia and Tignanello Antinori are only a few of the many desirable wines stacked in the bodega.
And we are told our food is superb!
