Located on the cute Commercial Avenue in Aspinwall, Marisqueira is beautiful and inviting inside. We started out with some tasty Sangrias, mine with red wine and his with champagne, and though both were great, we both liked the champagne one a little better.
My entree choice was the Pato a Colonias, or roasted duck in a sweet mango sauce, accompanied by a fresh side salad.
The skin on the duck was crispy and the meat tender. The sauce was sweet in a way that enhanced the flavor of the duck. A highly enjoyable dish. R. had a chicken dish that he loved as well.

Towards the end of the meal, we were treated to some complimentary Amarguinha, a Portuguese almond liquor.
The high quality of the food and the friendly service at Marisqueira are reminiscent of its sisters, Mallorca and Ibiza, but Marisqueira also has its own distinct style, flavor, and feel that makes it stand out on its own. It was, all in all, a lovely meal.
