Restaurants, Plaza de Andalucia
Restaurants in Ojén
On the main road in Ojén, but especially around the church and the Plaza de Andalucía be found. Many restaurants Mainly specializing in tapas and raciones. Nice to try all portions to share together. In the hotel we have a map of the city showing the most bars and restaurants indicated.
Plaza de Andalucia
El Calabazo: opposite the church. Lunch in the sun and also open in the evenings but small capacity inside. El Calabazo is also open at around 19:00 when all the other restaurants are closed. Nice varied Spanish cuisine, specially raciones (portions) and tapas. If something is not on the menu or on big boards, just ask Paqui.
Just behind El Calabazo is the Vikingo restaurant. The Danish owner has started an Argentinian restaurant with his wife (Argentinian). For a nice piece of meat from the grill, this is an absolute must. The salads are well stocked and the pastas are fresh.
El Portero is situated next to the fountain. Nice terrace, simple but tasteful food. Outside television, popular during sports-events. The food comes from the same kitchen. On Thursdays it´s closed.
Next to the church is Bar Diego. It is always open and if in the evening, you find the door closed, just push and you will find Carmen within. There is no menu but she will serve some good Spanish food. It doesn’t have a big capacity inside but it has a fabulous terrace.
Next to El Portero is El Fuente, popular because of the morning sun. Coffee and sandwiches with cheese, garlic, tomato and olive-oil.
If you are at the end of Calle Mesones, just in front of the the Farmacia, walk to the right, through the narrow street towards a large car park and on the right is Bar El Tapeo a cosy large terrace with good food for not too much money. Fish.
When you follow Calle Mesones till the end, and there 50 meters uphill to the left, you will arrive in El Tunel. The owner, Rado, speaks good English and he will be happy to serve you his best dishes. He has pizzas, charcoal dishes and Spanish specialties. Possibilities inside and outside. Closed on Tuesdays
Next to the Farmacia is the Panadería. Fresh coffee on the terrace, with or without a sandwich. Also sandwiches “to take”
If you follow the narrow street up, just opposite the hotel you will came to the main road. Just opposite this little alley we can recommend Gau Txori. Bar/Restaurant with fine steaks
A little bit to the right (wooden veranda) you will find Mesón Lorente. You can sit inside. Spanish specialties
If you walk a little to the left, you will find Castillo Solis on the other side of the street. This is a restaurant where a the villagers come. Perhaps the restaurant with the tastiest local dishes. Order half portions of everything and, do it the Spanish way: share!
The restaurant at the pool, Fogon de Flore, on the sports centre, has a good reputation.
On the square, you will find Bar Ojen, that´s where the whole village meets.
Going for a late-night drink? Bar Santos is opened till the early hours. Big screen TV for football (always) and cool drinks.
Calle Carretera (doorgaande weg boven)
Indien u het smalle straatje tegenover het hotel omhoog neemt, komt u aan de doorgaande weg. Een beetje naar rechts, met een houten veranda, ligt Meson Lorente. Prima restaurant met een Spaanse kaart. Uiteraard afhankelijk van de openingstijden die ons, zelfs na 8 jaar nog wat onduidelijk zijn. Het restaurant heeft de mogelijkheid om binnen te eten.
Tegenover het smalle straatje kunnen wij Gau Txori aanbevelen. Dit is een bar/restaurant waar men prima steaks op de kaart heeft staan.
Loopt u een stukje naar links, dan zit aan de overzijde van de straat Castillo Solis. Dit is een restaurant waar zich een groot gedeelte van het dorp ophoudt. Misschien wel het restaurant met de allerlekkerste lokale schotels. Bestel van alles halve porties en, op z´n Spaans´s: delen!
Het restaurant van het zwembad (Fogon de Flore), op het sportpark, helemaal boven, heeft een prima reputatie.
Pinchos y Chocolate
Veerle and Richard, who have been with us at the hotel for several years, have taken over the Tetería on the corner since October 2018. The Tetería was known for its delicious crepes, but nowadays they also offer homemade cakes and cookies, perfect with a cup of coffee or one of the many fresh tea varieties. But they serve also very tasty daily specials and others small bites. Sjonnie the house cat keeps an eye on everything.
The Pinchos are prepared with local products and are a little different from the colleagues that can be found on the square. In addition, you will also find a variety of well-filled salads, sandwiches and poké bowls (a traditional dish from Hawaii, where fresh fish in cubes and vegetables are central)
The terrace is a great spot to relax with an ice cold beer, a good glass of wine or a tasty Gin Tonic, surrounded by de locals from the village.
Due to the collaboration with the hotel, they also offer a daily special several times a week. For more information about the “daily specials” you can inquire at the reception.
Monday to Sunday 16.00 – 00.00
