On our penultimate night in Noja we may just have hit upon one of its best restaurants. The menu is limited compared to some restaurants but this is no bad thing as they are able to concentrate on getting it right. We had local Iberico pork dishes that we had not come across in our previous two weeks in the Basque Country. The bolas was to die for, the most tasty,tender and succulent pork that I have ever eaten. My wife's brochette was just as good. We also started with fried salted green peppers and Santona anchovies which were fantastic, the juices mopped up with some crusty bread. Desserts looked bought in, but the flan made with goose eggs was excellent and rich in flavour and the cheesecake more than passable. The manager/owner and staff couldn't have been more welcoming.

I was there with my family and it was the best Spanish restaurant which we have visited. The atmosphere there is incredible, the food is delicious and the restaurant is located close to the beach and the playground (which is good if you have 2 children ;) ).

This restaurant is amazing and has traditional Spanish meal. The quality of food is great and the food is always fresh. The menu has variety of Spanish dishes. The desserts taste like the homemade ones. The staff is helpful and friendly. I recommend it to everyone who wants to try proper Spanish food.

We had a couple of local cantrabian dishes. They tasted ok but it was fairly expensive. Staff could be nicer.
