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 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.

Marbella and summer form an undeniable dichotomy, which is why, as the most eagerly awaited season of the year approaches, the Costa del Sol town prepares to show off its best clothes with an unparalleled range of luxury beach bars. Aware of this, the Grupo Dani García and the Mosh Group have joined forces to carry out an ambitious project that will give a second life to the emblematic La Cabane beach club.

This initiative is part of DG Resort, a journey through the Mediterranean in which the prestigious Italian fashion brand Dolce & Gabbana has taken its iconic prints to the most luxurious beach clubs on its coasts. Places such as Capri, Taormina, Saint Tropez and, of course, Marbella, are on this list of the most sought-after summer destinations in southern Europe.

In Marbella, Dolce & Gabbana brings its iconic codes to La Cabane, located in the Los Monteros Spa & Golf Resort hotel *, which reopens its doors with a completely renovated face following the acquisition of the hotel by the Stoneweg real estate fund. To this end, both Dani García and Grupo Mosh have been in charge of the redesign and management project of this exclusive space, transforming its gastronomic and entertainment offer to take it to another level.

There, the renowned chef Dani García, with three Michelin stars, has been inspired by the beauty of majolica ceramics, typical of southern Italy, to create a menu capable of transporting you to the transalpine country with its flavours. This culinary transformation draws on the flavours of Italian Mediterranean cuisine and features avant-garde dishes prepared with the finest raw materials. From a range of pasta, caviar and pizza options to second courses with a marked Italian-Mediterranean style that transport you to the Amalfi Coast, to a raw bar with a wide variety of fish and seafood, all with the unmistakable stamp of the chef from Marbella. While the beach club will be dressed in Dolce & Gabbana’s iconic Blu Mediterraneo print, including a pop up shop of the fashion brand with the same creativity, the restaurant will be crowned with a final surprise, the Dolce Room, a room to enjoy the sweetest moment of the meal, the dessert. This unique space includes a selection of desserts made exclusively for Dolce & Gabbana. You will be able to taste one of the best sellers, the DG Logo Bag in different flavours (vanilla, passion fruit and command, and pistachio). As well as others inspired by the brand with yoghurt and raspberry rose and lemon. It features the richness and vibrancy of the Carretto Siciliano by Dolce&Gabbana print from which it takes its inspiration.

With a concept inspired by the most Mediterranean Italy, Grupo Mosh will develop the leisure offer that will not skimp on the rhythm with a calendar of daily performances and resident DJs.
La Cabane is located in one of the most exclusive areas of the Costa del Sol, just a few minutes from Marbella and Puerto Banús, in the emblematic hotel Los Monteros Spa & Golf Resort *. Combining tradition and modernity, this establishment has an incomparable setting that allows you to enjoy good accommodation, excellent Mediterranean cuisine, practice your swing on the Golf Mile or enjoy one of the most iconic beach clubs in southern Europe.

Afternoon snacks are that time of the day when we can relax and enjoy a little treat before dinner. A delicious option for these occasions is to visit Lobito de Mar, the famous restaurant of the renowned chef Dani García. There, in addition to his exquisite seafood and fish dishes, we can enjoy one of the chef’s most famous ice creams, Happy Hippo. As well as cocktails that will make our afternoon snack even more special.

Located in a privileged place, both in Marbella and Madrid, Lobito de Mar offers us a cosy and sophisticated atmosphere to enjoy a relaxing afternoon. As the sun begins to go down, we can take a seat on the terrace and enjoy the wide selection of cocktails. But we’ll stick with the summer special that together with Roku makes your afternoon unique thanks to their snacks highlights. 

What better way to accompany our ice cream than with a well-crafted cocktail? The restaurant’s expert bartenders will surprise us with unique and sophisticated creations that combine perfectly with the sweet and refreshing flavours of the ice cream. We can opt for a classic mojito or go for something more daring, such as a tropical fruit cocktail with a touch of vodka.

The combination of creamy ice cream and an expertly crafted cocktail is simply irresistible. We can enjoy every bite of ice cream while refreshing ourselves with sips of our favourite cocktail. In addition, the relaxed and elegant atmosphere of Lobito de Mar makes this experience even more pleasurable. The sound of the waves crashing on the beach and the sea breeze will transport us to a state of tranquillity and absolute enjoyment.

Going to Lobito de Mar for a snack becomes a special moment, where we indulge ourselves and get away from the daily hustle and bustle. The combination of ice cream and cocktail provides us with an explosion of flavours and textures that will delight our senses. It’s a perfect experience to share with friends, family or even to enjoy alone while gazing out to sea.

“It’s addictive and that’s why I dream of everyone being able to try this sauce”. Just a few years ago, Dani García shared his impression of Bull Sauce with his community of followers, a condiment that has made some of his most emblematic dishes recognizable.

Firm in his desire to take his flavours and creations to all parts of the world, the Marbella chef has taken another step towards the democratization of his cuisine, and on this occasion, the secret is in the sauce. In collaboration with Carrefour, Dani García is bringing his Bull sauce to everyone’s fingertips for the first time. From now on, it will be available in more than200 of the companies’ supermarkets in three versions: original, gluten free and vegetarian.

Salsa Bull

Fundamental in its restaurants

Also known as Dani García’s “secret sauce”, this dressing forms part of some of the Andalusian chef’s most iconic dishes and meat bites. These include the oxtail brioche and the Bull Burger from BiBo, his most travelled concept; the burger that made sense of it all from Leña, his concept inspired by embers and smoke; or the Rossini burger from Dani Brasserie, his cosmopolitan and casual proposal at the Four Seasons Hotel Madrid. 

As of a few weeks ago you can not only enjoy it in the chef’s restaurants, but also at home with this new launch.
