Eduardo’s in Costa Blanca’s Villamartin is an extension of Marbella’s Olivia’s La Cala, the vision of TOWIE star Elliott Wright.
Combining a fine dining experience with celebrity guests and live entertainment had Orihuela Costa hopping on Wednesday, June 22.
Speaking exclusively to Euro Weekly News, Mr Wright explained that Eduardo’s was a tribute to his dad, who passed away last year.
“This is a personal thing [opening Eduardo’s] for me to do since my father passed away last year,” he explained.
“A couple of years ago, pre-pandemic, I actually said to my dad that I was ready to open up, that I wanted to open up another Olivia’s.”
Eduardo’s was originally owned by Elliott’s father and the 42-year-old pitched him the idea of knocking the “restaurants together on the Plaza” so it “would be big enough for Olivia’s.”
“He agreed and I actually made plans for it and showed him the renders. So my dad got to see what I was going to do,” he said.
He added: “If there was anything I could do for my dad then to prolong his legacy [this was it]. This is his legacy.”
From the decor to the service, to the food and entertainment, Eduardo’s hit all the right notes.
The wonderful three-course meal fuelled diners for the fun-filled, dance floor-shaking entertainment on offer, which included performances from X-Factor singer Gary Barker, Marbella’s Masquerade Duo and TOWIE star James Argent.
Mr Argent, or Arge as he is affectionately known, spoke exclusively to Euro Weekly News and sang the praises of the new restaurant on the Costa Blanca.
After belting out a few Frank Sinatra hits, James said the grand opening “had been fantastic.”
“Lovely crowd, lovely energy, lovely vibe. Everyone has enjoyed themselves and everyone was up on their feet dancing the night away. What more could you want,” he said.
Speaking about the vision for Eduardo’s, ‘Arge’ said: “Fun, holiday, family vibes. Perfect parties. That’s what we want, that’s what we’re aiming for.”
“[Elliot] has done his dad proud. He’s done everyone proud,” he said about his friend of 16 years.
“Everyone had a smile on their face [tonight].”
