Often, restaurants which belong to a hotel are not very good at serving a la carte customers who don't stay in the hotel. Here, it's a different story.

This was side walk dining at its best. The Goat Cheese sampler from local farms was great. I also had a few other tapas, worth the walk!

My husband enjoyed the food, the waiters were a bit hit and miss. No veggie options, I ate bread and tomatoes when we went in. There wasn't a lot of choice elsewhere and as my husband enjoys fish I attended the restaurant a number of times.

I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Restaurant El Embarcadero.I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel El Duque and had dinner in one of its restaurants. The atmosphere you experience is a typical marine style but chic and very relaxing with its white colors and details. We were greeted by waiter Antonio and his colleague who had us... More

This place is pretty good. The prices are moderate and the food is tasty. I had the beef in a garlic sauce and the hamburger with fired potatoes while I was in Rota and really enjoyed both. Wait staff are attentive when not real busy but you may have to wave them down at times. The complimentary green olives in... More

We reserved to eat in the restaurant where we had eaten a few years ago, but now they have divided what used to be the restaurant and made it into a restaurant with restaurant service and menu and a bar with table service, tapas and raciones. We opted to try the bar tables as the menu offers more variety. Everything... More

I had one of the top 5 breakfasts in my life. The selections at each station were bountiful and what impressed me the most was the lady who made my omelet that morning. She was full of life and happy to make you breakfast. It made me feel special. This was a rare treat.
