Elegant in the extreme at Cibo try and get a banquette seat below the clematis-covered terrace, which is a wonderful place to sit in warmer weather.

The feather-in-the-cap of the Metro group (Jack’s, Mumtaz, Joys, etc), its chef Simone Riccioni, has been well-trained by the group’s culinary boss Lawrence Otterburn, a former Gordon Ramsay protege, who has cooked for Ronnie Wood, Kate Moss and Roman Abramovich.

A big kids menu, with excellent pizzas and pasta, drawing pad, pencils and puzzles, we were off to a flying start.

The service was also excellent with, in particular, half-Italian, half-Spanish Manuel doing an excellent job charming the nippers.

While broadly geared towards Italian food, if anything, it pitches itself more towards quality, but with excellent value.

There is a simple, easy wine list where even Italy’s two best reds Barolo and Brunello come in for just 60 euros. A glass of ice fresh verdicchio was good value at under five euros.

TOP DISH: The ‘Vincisgrassi’, that comes as a starter and main course, which is a splendid twist on lasagna, heralding from a 17th century recipe Lawrence picked up from his father

TOP TIPPLE: There is a decent mix of wines and even Italy’s two best reds Barolo and Brunello came in for just 60 euros

TOP DOLLAR: Around 35 euros a head including wine

TOP TIP: The lobster for just 32 euros is a great looking dish and extremely good value

TOP KIP: plenty of good places to stay in Marbella. Why not try Town House though
