We loved the dinner at the roof top of the Duquesa. The oysters and wilde dorade were excellent. Also very nice wine selection. Views and services are also perfect and for the quality offered, the prices are quite reasonable.

Firstly, the bar is amazing and their specialty drink was a favorite for my husband and me.Best burger sandwich ever. Desserts to savor. We love this spot. Have eaten here on a previous visit in 2014 and returned to stay here in March for almost 3 weeks. Will return when we can!
