Christmas and New Year’s Eve program in Marbella: taste the most Mediterranean Christmas and New Year’s Eve 2022 with distinguished and sophisticated bites.

Mosh group

Founded in 2015 in Marbella, Grupo Mosh is the result of the passion of a group of friends to create different spaces where the classic concept of restoration, leisure, relaxation, and fun is reinvented. With the influence of some of the most important national and international trends. Thus, thanks to the extensive knowledge of day and night business in 2015, Mosh Fun Kitchen was born, followed by Playa Padre in 2017, Momento in 2018, and Motel Particulier in 2019. Since then, his proposals, adapted to each space’s needs, audiences, and personalities, have won over diners and food critics.

One of the year’s most special moments can also be felt in Mosh’s spaces. It is Christmas, and different events and menus seduce the public in this last month of the year. For those who plan a New Year’s Eve dinner in Marbella or Christmas days that taste of luxury, comfort, and always original proposals, here are the different options of the other restaurants of the group:

Mosh Fun Kitchen and its mythical CatBaret

The catbaret event is a classic in the first of the restaurants of the Mosh group, and it’s always Fun Kitchen. For the gala dinner this year, they bring a closed menu that is an ode to fresh and quality products: tuna belly, prawns, and caviar are intermingled with other luxury ingredients such as truffles or seasonal boletus.

Seafood products in risky recipes full of flavor to celebrate the end of a year that has been a breath of fresh air after two fantastic years. And to celebrate after dinner, a lounge in the purest Marbella style to dance until the year ends and a new one begins.

An unforgettable dinner at Motel Particulier

The temple of hedonism also has its option to celebrate the most memorable night of the year. For those privileged to be part of the list of members or who have been invited by one of them, on December 31, the charismatic aesthetics of the ’20s await to celebrate the beginning of a new year.

Its delicious gastronomic proposal by chef Franco Franceschini is a tribute to French haute cuisine. This idea will also be the protagonist of the Christmas and New Year’s Eve menus. Delicious oysters, foie gras as an indispensable element, and a lot of imagination to convey to the guests the pleasure of enjoying exquisite events. And after dinner, the best DJs will give way to guaranteed fun in a unique and always vibrant atmosphere.

Momento Marbella: the final new year’s eve party

The most famous temple of electronic music in Marbella also has options for those who want to celebrate Christmas and the following dates. Although they specialize in bringing some of the best musicians and DJs throughout the year, on December 31, they will not be left behind and will also have a proposal to say goodbye to the year 2022.

Marbella Navidad

Grupo Mosh offers complete options for those who want to say goodbye to the year in style: quality menus, fun, and plans without having to suffer the inconvenience of a night when everyone wants to go out and enjoy. Momento Marbella, Motel Particulier, and Mosh Fun Kitchen are the places to be for the last days of the year. Although the rest of the spaces of the group do not have specific events for Christmas, we recommend you be constantly aware of other dates for the desired 2023.

Roostiq Marbella

Roostiq Marbella is not a traditional restaurant, nor is it a pizzeria. It resembles a Basque tavern and a restaurant where gastronomy and good wine come together. Known for its famous torreznos and slow-fermented pizzas, it lands in Marbella, in the heart of the Golden Mile.

Roostiq is a well-cared-for and quiet space; with top-quality service and a casual atmosphere with a correct average price. Since its inception, the restaurant’s vision has had a name: “We Farm.” Roostiq sources from its organic farm and garden, where they produce organic vegetables, sausages, and organic pasture-raised chickens, which are then served in the restaurant. This initiative shows Roostiq’s concern for organic farming and biodynamics as a respect for nature and food taste.

The night of December 31, you have an appointment at Roostiq Marbella, where you will enjoy an exquisite New Year’s Eve menu that will feature a welcome cocktail, with starters to share (bacon with champagne, clams, and sautéed artichokes, pumpkin cream with croutons or burrata and caviar rotalaccio), a second course to choose between turbot grilled on charcoal or stuffed chicken and roasted in the wood oven with guanciale and black truffle; and a selection of desserts to end the last dinner of the year: Christmas cheesecake, grapes, nougat, and Christmas sweets. In addition, on the menu, you can taste the best Roostiq champagnes and wines whether you choose pairing or premium pairing. The dinner has a total price of 300 € or 360 € if you select the menu with premium pairing (in both cases, the children’s menu has a cost of 60 €).

Coa Marbella

Lovers of good food are in luck. This year there will be a Christmas dinner in Marbella, unable to leave its diners indifferent. The place? Coa Restaurant Marbella. Relaxed elegance, top-quality raw materials, and a team to live up to the promise to enjoy a Christmas to remember. Discover the restaurant that aspires to become an emblem of the Costa del Sol, where the cult of gastronomy for gourmet palates proudly wears the seal of David Aguado. If you do not know what to do in Marbella this Christmas, surely you can not miss the gastronomy and recipes of one of the trendiest restaurants.

This Christmas in Marbella enjoys a chic and vibrant atmosphere at Coa Restaurant. The program they have designed for Christmas has lunches and dinners open to the general public or closed upon request. This can be consulted through their social networks. Enjoy the imperial caviar with blinis, butter, and spiced sour cream or the scallops with Parmesan cream, marinated asparagus, and acorn ham.

Let yourself be seduced by the taste of sea bass with Nantua prawn sauce and crispy artichoke petals. For meat lovers, the chef proposes the oxtail cannelloni with foie gras, mushrooms, and smoked cheese foam or the Tierra de Sabor lamb shoulder baked in a stone oven. The Galician blonde steak, the national wagyu steak, or the Angus steak complete the chef’s meat proposals. As a finishing touch, we suggest the Manjula, a white chocolate mousse with mango and passion jelly inside, caramel cream, hazelnut crunch, and olive oil sponge cake. Sounds fantastic.

Coa Marbella

Monkey Club

Located in the heart of Marbella’s Puente Romano resort, Monkey Club Marbella is where you can be surprised. This is the ideal place to enjoy an exceptional culinary experience in a premium atmosphere. Undoubtedly a non-traditional space to enjoy a New Year’s Eve dinner in Marbella that will surprise and please you in equal parts. Live a dream Christmas in the most eclectic and tropical atmosphere of the Costa del Sol and toast at the table with your loved ones for a new year full of moments like the one you will live in this foodie temple. With its New Year’s Eve menu, you can open your mouth with the wild salmon loin marinated with gin and spices, its crispy langoustines wrapped in basil leaves and no mam sauce, and the Gillardeau oyster with ponzu sauce and salmon roe.

This New Year’s Eve dinner in Marbella continues with a king crab tartar and Peking-style duck cannelloni. The fish proposal includes sautéed scallops from the Normandy coast, green cabbage puree, and caviar beurre blanc. Meanwhile, meat lovers opt for dry-aged Galician blonde sirloin steak, truffled potato puree, jus corsé, and fresh black truffle; as a culmination to such a feast, a Christmas log and the best pairing are offered by their sommeliers. Their New Year’s Eve dinner in Marbella also features midnight bubbles, grapes, decorations, music, and lots of Monkey energy. In addition, they also offer group menus for such special dates.

Mantarraya MX

Mantarraya MX is the landing of chef Roberto Ruiz in Marbella, who, in this way, adds a new project to the Pacífico MX family. He brings us the best of Mexican cuisine in a proposal with its personality but always keeping the hedonistic soul of its predecessor in Madrid, Barracuda, MX. Marbella’s climate and proximity to the sea favor a menu where ceviches, fish, and seafood take center stage and are complemented by exceptional cocktails based on mezcal and Humo, the chipotle chili liqueur. For the premiere of Mantarraya MX, Roberto Ruiz wanted to surround himself with the team that has accompanied him in other critical moments of his career. He again has Tatiana Allard as his right-hand woman in the Kitchen and Maggie Bañuelos in the dining room management.

In addition, this year, you can celebrate the most magical night of the year with them thanks to their two New Year’s Eve dinner menus in Marbella: the piñata menu and the start menu. Among the ‘dishes’ you can taste during the gala dinner are citrus oysters, Christmas guacamole, corn tostadas with red tuna, txangurro chilpachole, tacos, beef tenderloin, and Bloody ‘Maria’ ceviche. Both menus include a Margarita as a welcome cocktail, dessert, wine, water, soft drinks, beer, and coffee. Don’t think twice and say goodbye to the year with an unmistakable mix of the best of the Pacific and the finest of the Mediterranean at Mantarraya MX. You won’t regret it!
