We had a family celebration here and couldn't fault any portion of our dinner. The washrooms are just inside the entrance door and do not lend themselves to wheelchair access.

We have eaten here many times and always had an excellent meal. The restaurant overlookes the marina at Duquesa so the view is lovely. The staff are friendly and efficient and the owner greets you on entering. This restaurant is not the cheapest but the food is of a high standard and never disappoints.

We have dined in Macues on a number of occasions and it rightly has been regarded as one of the best restaurants in Puerto de la Duquesa. Our starters were very good, the stuffed aubergines, iberico ham and smoked salmon with capers all hit the mark. We also had complimentary pate and olives which were very nice. The main courses...

Such a shame, this turned out to be an expensive meal - 125eur for 2 adults and 3 kids with just main courses and water. We were charged for a pâte course that we didn't order (they just bring it, 3 of us are gluten free so we could not eat it anyway). We queried the 20eur charge for my... More

One of the old established restaurants in Puerto La Duquesa, for many years said to be the best restaurant outside of Marbella. It occupies a prime first floor position right on the waterfront and is a perfect venue for special events, birthdays etc.

We were only stopping by Puerto Duquesa for a nice meal before heading back to Malaga and we were charmed by the beautiful look of this traditional restaurant overlooking the port. Sadly, that's where the compliments end. The staff were hostile towards us and cold, almost as if they didn't respect us as we weren't Spanish. Both my mum and... More
