Straits cuisine with Moorish reminiscences
The proximity of Morocco and Andalusia has left its mark on Ceuta's cuisine in terms of flavours, aromas and colours. A cuisine with Andalusian and Moroccan influences based largely on the wide variety of excellent seafood and fish caught in the coastal waters and which includes traditional Moorish dishes.
A Spanish-Moroccan gastronomic fusion
From the restaurant's menu, with views of the garden, you will love the seafood rice in broth, the swordfish in rigamonti sauce, the fried fish, the braised oxtail or typically Arabic dishes such as the chicken breua or the Moorish-style tajin of poussin with lemon confit and olives. Handmade pastries, such as the delicious chuparquias, and all kinds of fruit from the neighbouring Alawite kingdom are the perfect complement.

The gateway to Europe
It is a modern building attached to the former Royal Walls, an exclusive location with views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Royal Moat, the only navigable moat filled with salt water. The Parador has a swimming pool, an extensive garden with lush palm trees, a bar, restaurant, meeting and celebration rooms. It has accessibility facilities and a currency exchange.
The city of Ceuta, between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, offers sun and beach, exoticism and culture. The city has 21 kilometres of coastline with baches, coves and rocks. Some of its beaches are in the town centre, such as El Chorrillo and La Ribera, opposite the Parador. You can also visit the Legion Museum and the Port of Ceuta, both of which are near the Parador. The port is especially important due to its strategic location and the economic boost it gives to the city. Special tax regimes enable quality purchases to be made at excellent prices.
Other places of interest are the baroque sanctuary of Nuestra Señora de África, the Cathedral and the Palacio de la Asamblea, the seat of Ceuta's town hall.
