Excellent food and service, once again!

We have been to Sambal every summer since they opened. Once again they excel - michelin quality food and great service in beautiful environment. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Noja or Cantabrua - definitely the best restaurant in Noja!

Played the 9 hole golf course in Noja and decided to have lunch at Sambal which is in the same premisses as the club house. Good decision: we were treated fantastic and were offered countless great starters and excellent and nicely presented food. And, service is just perfect - a must when being in this area!

A beautiful location in a golf court, a quiet terrace with good weather, a glass walled kitchen, a very very good wine list with moderate prices, a prof customer oriented service, a recomendation by Michelin, one of the best chefs in Cantabria, and...
