Many of us use the phrase, "Mi casa es tu casa", but rarely has it felt more appropriate to me than when I enjoyed the hospitality of this delightful family run restaurant.
There is no pretension about the place. It is a restaurant that serves classic Spanish tapas & main meals and does them well!
The "Scottish branch" of my family have been here many times, but for me it was a first.
To start I had the Albondigas (meatballs in a tomato sauce) and Patatas Bravas, (potatoes in a spicy tomato sauce). Both were fantastic.
The absolute highlight, however, was my Paella Marinara - the seafood paella. A sizeable portion of spiced rice with fresh seafood including Mussels, Squid & some giant Tiger Prawns. Served in the cooking skillet, it was a real treat.
In addition to the classic dishes, they also do specials, one of which I'd have definitely ordered had I noticed the board in time. It was Chorizo & Black Pudding in Red Wine which sounds mouthwateringly good.
If seafood isn't your thing, my Mum & brother both devoured a steak & my Aunt had Pollo Cacciatore - a tasty chicken dish.
I finished with Helado Con Peras, Pears & Ice Cream which was also superb.
The owner and his family are very welcoming and if you like Spanish food, or are simply curious to try it, then get yourself to La Ducal for a lovingly prepared, relaxing meal.
