About the restaurant

Inaugurado en Julio de 2000, en Marbella. El Lago, supuso toda una apuesta de un grupo empresarial, por crear un restaurante diferente, provisto de campo de golf, con una cocina atrevida y un servicio personalizado.

El restaurante se encuentra situado en la casa-club Greenlife Golf, entre los hoyos 1 y 2. Ofreciendo el marco incomparable de un lago.

Presenta una decoración contemporánea, destacando su terraza, considerada una de las mejores de su entorno.

El Lago desarrolla una cocina moderna con personalidad propia, basada en la gran calidad de sus productos, en una buena técnica de elaboración y toques de creatividad.

Todo esto se ve reflejado en la estrella Michelín que el local recibió en 2005.
