Annika Urm food review: Restaurant 'O' by Paco Roncero Suprise Millennial Olive Tree @ Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Hotel, 2019

I (Annika Urm food review) and Veiko Huuse visited the new restaurant ‘O’ by Paco Roncero in August 2019 in Marbella, Spain. We enjoyed this new gastronomic concept in a privileged location on the hills of the Costa del Sol, Spain, and the Mediterranean, part of the facilities of Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Benahavis Marbella Resort, an oasis with historic charm.

On the other hand, it was lovely having a glass of welcome champagne and looking menus in different welcome areas. It was very special.

We had a surprise entrance over the Millennial Olive trees with free different tasting experiences. We had to go over the trees and the waitress explained to us what taste exactly each olive has and how they are different. They all taste good and special with a slightly bitter touch that differentiates them one from another.

We also had a different wine to each plate and they were the perfect match in each case, giving an extra touch to the food.

Every plate, every meal, every drink were just divineThe red prawn ravioli felt so fresh and was not pasta ravioli –The name can be confusing-, but they explained to us when ordering the food. But the taste was new and fresh and exotic.

Oh! and the cuttlefish, I just loved it, and of course, there was the foie gras with a touch of champagne mmmm fantastic.

The pigeon was a fresh and had an exotic taste you can’t get a pigeon this god anywhere, it was very special. Furthermore, Rhubarb soup was amazing.

O’ by Paco Roncero is a new haute cuisine project by the chef based on the best products from Andalusia and opened its doors on Friday 26th of July, 2019 at La Terraza del Casino of the Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Resort in Marbella, Spain.

Paco Roncero opened his restaurant ‘O’ By Paco Roncero with 2 sets:

  • Menu a la Carte (75 € for a 3-course meal/ 80 € for 4 courses)
  • Tasting menu for 99 €.

In this new project, El Olivo de Paco Roncero is recovered, with the power to enjoy a tasting of olive oil taking the olives directly from the millenary olive tree.

The influence of this cuisine is 100% Spanish, with a nod to Andalusia, giving rise to examples such as shrimp tarts with pink tomato and round cheese, and other elegant dishes full of traditional flavors of the region.
