An Argentinean delight

Sep 30, 2011 No Comments by

I get really excited when I find hidden gems such as Evita Restaurante in Nueva Andalucía. Open from 7pm, they specialise in serving a mix of Argentinean meats fused with international cuisine, all within typical Argentinean surroundings. All the meat served in the restaurant is sourced from Argentina. The reason for this? The large plains and the excellent quality of the pasture is the ideal climate for raising the perfect cattle and, therefore, the perfect meat. Argentina has always been known for its high-quality, tender and tasty produce.

In keeping with Argentinean tradition, all of the meat in Evita is cooked on coals, making its taste, aroma and appeal all that more genuine. Adding to the atmosphere, there is live piano music every Monday and seductive Tango shows every Thursday and Sunday, with professionally trained dancers serenading you and transporting you right to the heart of Argentina. The restaurant’s core clientele return to Evita again and again to enjoy the experience and the food.

Since August 2008, Evita has been wowing diners with its fantastic cuisine and service. Argentinean owner Luciano has always worked in the restaurant business, and brings his wealth of knowledge here to Marbella. Nueva Andalucía is now such a rapidly growing, popular area, and with the abundance of parking, spacious terrace, and the outstanding view overlooking the 13th green at Royal Las Brisas, it is the perfect location for this authentic eatery.

The chef Juan Ignacio Calomeni has a wealth of experience that is reflected in the dishes on the menu. Together with Luciano, the creative menu consists of combining typical Argentinean cuisine, with international, fish dishes and homemade pastas to suit all tastes. Previously working in some of the best restaurants on the coast, Juan’s dishes are beautifully cooked and presented.

To begin: two delectable starters. Tempura prawns with two dipping sauces – teriyaki and sweet chilli, followed by a light green salad with warm goats’ cheese, apple slices and drizzled honey. The batter on the tempura prawns was the perfect consistency, not too oily, lightly coating the juicy prawns.

Next came the array of meats: sirloin, rib eye and fillet. All were cooked to order (we went for medium) and were absolutely divine. The succulent meats cut beautifully and were served with a choice of baked potato with cheese, French fries or Caesar salad (French fries was the winner for us). We also decided to try something different and went for lacquered chops in mint, rosemary and cous cous. The lamb and mint worked deliciously together and the cous cous was light and fresh.

We dined on two desserts; profiteroles with ice cream and warm chocolate and pancakes with a caramel filling. After fighting over the gooey pancakes, we enjoyed the cream inside the profiteroles, which was so light and fluffy. We certainly left Evita with a smile.

Whether you are planning to enjoy an intimate dinner for two in the interior dining room, or gaze over the views from their beautiful terrace, Evita Restaurante is one of those restaurants that leaves you planning your next visit as you walk out of the door.
