Excellent Spanish Restaurant

Having spent a week in Spain I had the pleasure of going to Macues initially for a wedding reception. Returned as the food was so good the first time and pleased to say not disappointed the second time. Really good service from the staff and the food was exceptional.

Not much to see here except good things: pleasant attentive service, excellent food well presented, a delightful ambience with a view over the Marina, and a small sense of history in a part of the world that is otherwise rather short on that sort of thing. This is a second-generation family establishment that has listed a good many top European... More

The service and food is the best in Puerto Duquesa and surrounding area. The Chateaubriand or Seabass baked in salt are served from a side table to you. On a Friday night there is classy entertainment with the dulcet tones of Peter Charles. This restaurant is family owned and has been passed from father to son over the past 35... More

This is probably the only truly Spanish restaurant in the port and if compared to local port establishments it is good. However, if you compare it to the other Spanish restaurants nearby and in not so touristic areas - it is quite average. I think I expected something else. Interior and cutlery was quite dated. Service without smile or any... More

Just after playing golf at Finca Cortesin, we headed to a restaurant recommended by the caddie master. Macues is located in Puerto de la Duquesa and let's admit I absolutely don't regret having followed the advise. The place is simple but really nicely located looking over the little harbor. But the best is the food. A great sea bass "a... More

Probably the very first Spanish Restaurants in the Port. A very well established restaurant, with excellent food and a superb vista. Service is Spanish traditional and will be remembered.

Fabulous food and an amazing view, it just needs updating a little bit and it will be up there with the best Duquesa has to offer.

I have visited this restaurant many times and have had consistently good meals. We decided to book for a New Years special and certainly were not disappointed. Unfortunately I was designated driver so could not partake in the excellent wines.

I found Macues by accident, and what a great find it was, it looks a little dated, but that is soon forgotten, with the great view of the marina. The Spanish father and son that run it are very professional. You get a free mini starter, the sea bass we all had was simply amazing, and to finish they even... More
