We had a three course menu, with tuna tartare as a starter, black paella with grilled octopus as main and chocolate bonbon with vanilla ice cream. We also had a bottle of white wine and mineral water. The cost for two persons having this menu...More

I've eaten here a few times and been impressed with almost everything. The mussels are excellent, and the smoked salmon toast is delicious. I've tried the baked fish in salt and although a little expensive I think it was worth it. The staff are nice...More

Perfectly fresh, delicious food with perfect service. It's located in the Hotel Duque de Najere, which is a divine hotel with a fab restaurant.

It was a wonderful location but the food and service were only so so. My daughter's mussels had all of the sauce cooked or drained off and the crab balls were very fishy tasting.

Good restaurant, newly renovated. With extremely good tapas and fish dishes. I would not recommend the beef meat, too expensive and tough. Mussles and octobus on the grill are delicious!

El Embarcadero is the smaller a la carte restaurant within the hotel Duque de Najera. Compared to the main buffet dinner restaurant, built in hangar size, Embarcadero has a relaxed and nearly intimate feeling. Fresh fish and shellfish of high quality are in focus here....More
