Lobito de Mar, chef Dani García’s bar, which has already conquered cities such as Marbella and Madrid and has even crossed borders as far as Doha, will open its doors in the new LaFinca Grand Café shopping centre on Thursday 14 September.

This restaurant, whose first space saw the light of day in 2017 in an emblematic location in the heart of the Costa del Sol’s Golden Mile, landed in Madrid in 2019 and, shortly after, became a haven of the Mediterranean Sea in the capital, due to its gastronomic proposal focused on the flavour of the sea. Three years later, Lobito de Mar opened its first location outside Spain, taking the essence of the concept to the capital of Qatar, with the aim of transmitting the cuisine of the chef from Marbella beyond our borders.

Now, after several years of success, the iconic restaurant is inaugurating its second location in Madrid with the opening of Lobito de Mar in the LaFinca Grand Café shopping centre, a space where quality, safety and design have come together to create a unique atmosphere.

This new Lobito de Mar, which is located in Pozuelo de Alarcón, in a residential area and close to La Finca Business Park, has a capacity for 206 people, a restaurant divided into different spaces so that diners can enjoy a unique dining experience that adapts to every occasion.

The interior area includes an impressive bar that invites diners to share delicious portions and enjoy the gastronomic proposal in a more informal way. To enjoy the experience in a more relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, the main dining room is the ideal space. On the other hand, its large outdoor area offers a variety of atmospheres to suit every occasion. From exclusive reserved areas to a cosy outdoor bar and a terrace with a pergola, which allows you to enjoy the experience all year round.

The highlight of the experience in this new enclave is its second terrace, which stands out as a unique space. With two tables immersed in the lake that surrounds the shopping centre, this terrace adds a touch of magic to the experience. An ideal space to enjoy signature cocktails in a pleasant atmosphere and which offers the possibility of holding special events and presentations, making it a versatile and charming space.

The interior design of this wonderful space is inspired by the sea. Thus, its colours and textures are present in every corner of Lobito de Mar. This design reveals the essence of the restaurant through a palette of blue colours and striped patterns, reminiscent of the Malaga coastline. The crackled textures inspired by salt, a fundamental element of the sea, as well as the sculptures that simulate the movement of water, create a dynamic rhythm that transports diners to a maritime universe.

Its gastronomic proposal, centred on offering the freshness of the sea that arrives from the best fish markets, presents a range of flavours that are revealed in a menu based on shellfish, crustaceans, national molluscs, Andalusian fried foods and espetos. Particularly noteworthy are the rice dishes in the pure Alicante style, with options such as the sweet lobster rice with trumpets of death or Iberian pork ribs and mushrooms, the daily fish market, which includes dishes prepared with the catch of the day and its ode to bluefin tuna, which offers raw, tapas, stews and grilled tuna accompanied by potatoes “a la roteña”.

For those who want to enjoy a more informal dining experience, the bar offers the option of enjoying half portions of these delicious dishes, allowing you to savour the proposal in a more relaxed way.

Thus, Lobito de Mar continues its expansion with the opening of its second location in the capital, which will be located in one of the most prestigious areas of Madrid, and becomes one of the most innovative restaurants to open its doors in the LaFinca Grand Café shopping centre.

The mood in Madrid is permeated with excitement and anticipation as the anniversary of Lobito de Mar, the prestigious restaurant of renowned chef Dani García, approaches. With each passing year, this iconic venue has become a landmark for gastronomy and seafood lovers in the Spanish capital.

Since its opening several years ago, Lobito de Mar has delighted diners with an incomparable culinary experience that combines the freshness of the sea with the gastronomic creativity of Dani García. The restaurant has been praised by critics and gourmets alike.

Lobito de Mar’s anniversary is a special moment, not only for Dani García and his team, but also for the diners who have had the pleasure of enjoying his innovative and delicious dishes. The celebration promises to be an unforgettable event, with a special menu on the evening of 7 September designed by Dani García and a unique pairing. Lobito highlights the freshest and tastiest ingredients from the sea. From oysters to lobster, every bite will be an explosion of flavour and culinary creativity.

But Lobito de Mar’s anniversary is more than just an occasion to enjoy exceptional food. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the impact Dani García has had on the gastronomic scene in Madrid and throughout Spain. His focus on excellence and innovation has inspired a generation of chefs and raised the standard of cuisine in the country.

This year will undoubtedly be a celebration that will remain etched in the memory of all those present.

The return to normality after the summer holidays marks the beginning of a gradual transition from relaxation and rest to daily routine and responsibilities. After enjoying moments of leisure, travel and disconnection, it is natural to experience a sense of adjustment as you return to everyday life.

This stage can generate mixed feelings. On the one hand, there is nostalgia for holiday days, where time seemed to stretch out and worries were put on the back burner. On the other hand, the return to routine brings with it a renewed sense of purpose and structure. The feeling of resuming regular activities can be comforting, providing a sense of order and normality in the midst of a constantly changing world.

It is important to approach the return to normality with a balanced mindset. Reflecting on the positive moments of the holidays and taking that revitalising energy with you can help you face the challenges that come with returning to work, school and daily obligations. Drawing on holiday experiences and learnings can enrich the way you approach your daily life.

Planning ahead is also essential. Organising schedules, setting goals and managing tasks efficiently can make it easier to adapt to the routine. In addition, maintaining a balance between work and personal time is essential to avoid burnout and allow for moments of relaxation even in the midst of routine.

The return to normality can be an opportunity to establish new healthy routines. Incorporating exercise habits, a balanced diet and time for self-care can help maintain a consistent sense of wellbeing, regardless of the time of year.

Ultimately, returning to normality after the summer holidays is a process of adjustment that involves combining the positive aspects of summer relaxation with everyday responsibilities. Maintaining a positive attitude, planning ahead and finding ways to balance routine with moments of enjoyment are key to successfully navigating this period and maintaining a sense of wellbeing throughout the year.
