We ate here towards the end of a long walk through the Poquiera valley and were very hungry when we arrived. The restaurant was the first one we found as we came into the village at the bottom, rather than via the road where it seems most restaurants are. A local man directed us to Estación 4 as the nearest place to eat. It is very small but there was room for us. we were served substantial tapas with our drinks which helped keep us going until our mains were ready. The food was excellent, I had mediterreanean style chicken with couscous which was full of flavour. Friendly service too. We didn't eat anywhere else in Bubion so can't comment on how this compares, but I would definitely go again.

This place is tucked away above the main square and feels like going into an arty family's front room. The food is great - the lamb Kofte were subtle and succulent , the lamb and honey tagine very special. Medium price but good value. Helpful staff . And coeliac friendly too- happy to offer rice instead if couscous and discuss ingredients

We were advised to book a table as a party of seven as a small establishment. The food is cooked to order and is really fresh and delicious. Would recommend to anyone. Not easily found if not aware of the place. Look for it!!

We ate twice at Estacion 4 in Bubion. On both occasions the food was excellent and the waitress Gemma was brilliant. Free tapas to start, starter large enough to share (goats cheese and walnut salad) and good quality main (we had lamb casserole and veg lasagne). Wonderful desserts to finish (pears in wine and chocolate mousse). Local wine and coffees. All for about £25 per head. The restaurant is well away from the main road and there is also a shop. The premises are very small but at the time we went this wasn't a problem.

A wonderful place, and definitely worth looking for. (See below.) In fact it's worth coming to Bubion just to eat at the Estacion 4. This was one of the best meals I had in Spain.

Great for foodies looking for substantial traditional local dishes (I had a sort of stew - it was in December - but I can't remember the name) and also, judging from other tables, for Spanish families, especially ones with hungry children.

I'm pretty sure the ingredients are all local too.

There are only two problems. One is that it's very small (just one downstairs room, with an arched white ceiling, old red tiles on the floor and rickety old tables and chairs), so ring up and book, particularly in the high season.

The other is that it's a bit difficult to find. (There is a sign in the little square before you get to the restaurant, but it's not clear what alley it's meant to be pointing up - I didn't understand it anyway) You just have to ask, or come with a map. Searching gives an edge to the appetite though, so you end up enjoying your food even more.

Slightly more expensive than a common or garden ordinary restaurant, but very definitely worth it.
