Map Placing here is wrong it's 29692 La Chullera, Málaga, Spain. We had creamy tomato soup and the pate. And it was a large starter. We could not finish it as we were waiting for the main and didn't want to be stuffed. We had prawns and suckling pig for the main and as other has stated here the the... More

I found the food here lovely. Mixed starter ratatouille, sausages in cider, black pudding - all very good. The steaks were huge - cooked as asked. Really enjoyed the potatoes with garlic. The portions were very generous so we had to have a take out box - which the waiter was more than happy to oblige. Wine choice also varied... More

Each time we visit Duquesa we come here. Looks nothing from the outside but once inside it is very Spanish. Genteel service (they let you try your Spanish, if you wish, but rescue you nicely if you struggle), excellent food and lots of it. This is a restaurant and not a Bar or Cafe. You can get dressed up if... More

The restaurant doesn't look much on the outside being right on the N340 between Duquesa and Manilva but it's pleasant inside in the usual dark wood Spanish style. A good choice on the menu with generous portion sizes. The peri peri prawns, prawns with avocado, French onion soup and black pudding starters were all good. The tuna with peppers came... More

We have been going to this restaurant off and on for over 25 years. It used to be very good then it had a bad period, we gave it another try and it improved, then it went off again etc. We decided to give another try recently and it will be the last ever. I ordered fish, they gave me... More

Always our first stop when we arrive. Excellent food in this Spanish restaurant. If you go early mainly holidaymakers. Later always Spanish families or groups. Food consistently good. Staff always very efficient. Highly recommend. Book in summer and parking can be a challenge when busy.
