Arriving around midnight, Miss Longoria, whose flight from the US was delayed, was accompanied at the dinner at the luxury beach club by various A-listers, including Oscar-nominated actor, Terrence Howard, Puerto Rican Prison Break actor, Amaury Nolasco, top Spanish actress and model, Mar Saura and Ms. Longoria’s good friends, Maria Bravo, and Alina Peralta, along with Spanish basketball legend, Fernando Romay. The group greeted each other excitedly as they met up at Marbella’s most iconic beach club to dine under the stars with the waves of the Mediterranean lapping gently on the shore just a few meters away from the candlelit table.

It is not the first time that Eva Longoria has been spotted at Nikki Beach; the sassy actress has previously visited Nikki Beach’s VIP lounge at the Cannes Film Festival, and she has also popped up on the pristine white shores of Nikki Beach at Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The popular actress, 37, is best known for her former role as Gabriela Solis in the phenomenally popular TV series Desperate Housewives and now campaigner for President Obama’s re-election campaign.
Enjoying the Nikki Beach Experience
On this occasion, Ms. Longoria was wearing an emerald green, mini culotte dress and strappy nude heels accompanied on the evening by a posse of close girlfriends. Her party enjoyed a selection of mouth-watering dishes inspired by the exotic locations of the various Nikki Beach clubs around the world, including the impressive Nikki Beach Steam Boat of sizzling Chateaubriand and lobster and classic Nikki Beach Chicken Satay. Also on the menu were some Spanish gourmet delights including a cheeseboard and the best cured Jabugo ham which the actress enjoyed with a glass of full-bodied Spanish red wine.
Guests dining at Nikki Beach were delighted when the A-list diners started appearing, adding an extra touch of magic to the Nikki Beach Moonlight dining experience. The first to arrive was Spanish basketball “giant” Fernando Romay, 2.13m tall, who later posed with the petite Ms. Longoria, 1.55, who found the height difference simply hilarious.
When handsome Prison Break actor Amauri Nolasco, accompanied by his girlfriend, Martina Anna Lund and Spanish actress Mar Saura, the friendly Puerto Rican actor caused quite a stir among the ladies with his thousand watt smile. Oscar nominee Terrence Howard also arrived in a really friendly, relaxed mood, hugging security staff and mixing it with fans and admirers.
Eva Longoria arrived with her good friends Mario Bravo and Alina and despite her two hour delay, was looking sensational in an emerald green mini culotte and strappy nude heels (will try and get details later this morning). She was looking really happy and relaxed, showing off her legs to full effect and with her glossy L’Oreal mane loose – which she later pulled up into a chic chignon at the table.

Spanish Delights for Latina Beauty
The party were offered a glass of champagne on entering Nikki Beach – and most of the guests partook of a glass – Eva had a few sips before posing for a few pics. Eva and her guests chatted, hugged, kissed and were really excited to see each other. They later sat down to relax at the shoreside, candlelit table which was strewn with bougainvillea. The guests enjoyed red, white and rose Nikki Beach Wines, Eva favouring a full bodied red Spanish wine. The group ate their appetizers Spanish tapas style, enjoying foie gras, a cheeseboard and the famous Spanish cured ham, Jamón de Jabugo. The group clapped and cooed when the waiters brought out the main course, three impressive Nikki Beach Steam boats – of sizzling Chateaubriand and lobster – complete with sparklers and class Nikki Beach Chicken Satay and ribs.
A relatively quiet evening at Nikki Beach Marbella, the venue being world famous for its spectacular parties, Ms. Longoria and guests enjoyed the sounds of a live trumpeter who played along to the Nikki Beach beat, staying around chatting and chilling out until around 2.30am.
