Welcome to La Escalera de Balthazar, a restaurant that brings the best of Mediterranean and Provençal cuisine to Benahavis.

We started with a simple vision: creating a one-of-a-kind, gourmet dining experience in one of the most picturesque corners of Marbella. At our restaurant, you will find only the finest, freshest ingredients and simple recipes that preserve their authenticity, flavor, and texture.

The greatest proof of our passion for culinary artistry is reflected in our ever-changing, seasonal menu, which showcases the best produce Andalusia has to offer.

But, the food is only half of our story. We have an unwavering passion for wine and our carefully curated wine selection is a testament to this, taking you on a journey through the diverse terroirs of Spain. La Escalera de Balthazar is a haven for wine enthusiasts, a place to discover the rich Spanish viniculture where we proudly showcase some of the finest local wines.
