Best upmarket restaurant in Puerto Duquesa

Excellent food in lovely setting. Pricey but if you are having a special night out it is worth it. Fish and meat on the menu. Genuine family run Spanish restaurant. Very good service and all the staff have been there for many years.

With an outstanding location on the first level overlooking the marina, this is the place to go for that 'Special' meal. We were there early and the place was quiet, so we got a table overlooking the marina, certainly an outstanding view. The menu is mainly fish and grills but better to my mind than an extensive menu done poorly.... More

Never a poor meal.The staff are charming and friendly. The fish is fresh and the wine very good. The best view in the port as well. Not cheap though but you pay for what you get. Always will go back.

We have visited Macques on a number of occasions over last three years and it never fails to impress. Located overlooking the marina in Duquesa, this restaurant while more expensive than some of its neighbours provides quality food well above the average. Seafood dishes in particular are exceptional with their salt baked fish a speciality worth trying. Staff are realy... More

My wife and I ate here twice on our holiday (she ate here 15 years ago and wanted to go back to see if it was still as good). She was not disappointed, we both loved every mouthful of food. The salt baked fish (we had Bream on 1st visit & Sea Bass on the 2nd) is a speciality which... More

When one of the founding brothers died a few years ago, we feared for the future. His brother William, and William's son have gone from strength to strength, and Macues sets the standard for others to match. Truly mixed cuisine. Service is exceptional and their key fish dish for me is sea bass baked in salt, it just melts in... More

Have eaten here on many occasions in recent years and it is always a treat. Great location overlooking the port in Duquesa. Fish is magnificent every time. Not cheap but worth every cent.

This is a family run traditional Brasserie Style Restaurant with Amazing Views overlooking the Marina. We have visited here many times and never disappointed. They serve one of the best Fillet Steaks I've ever had and we have eaten in many restaurants all over the world. Highly Recommended.

This is as a restaurant should be. The food is all good- try the sea bass in salt. The sole meuniere is also a taste revelation it is the standard for others. The wine list is also comprehensive without being over priced. The service is impeccable. Attentive and friendly without being fussed or fussy. The views over the delightful port... More
