Ona·Nao, Javea 865616192
Interesting name & great view of the beach…
This impressive modern restaurant is located overlooking the Arenal beach at 11 Avenida de la Libertad. The name comes from the valencian word for a wave “Ona” and a nearby countryside area of Nao.
The menu del día is priced at €15.95 and we received a delicious pumpkin soup whilst we studied the menu. The delicious home baked bread with alioli and tomato (€2) followed before we tackled our starters of steamed mussels, tartar of salmon, garlic baby squid and delicious plate of baby broad beans, pancetta and mushrooms.
One of our party decided to go á la carte and enjoyed garlic shrimps (€10.95) followed by lamb cutlets (€18.50), pricey but tasty apparently.
On the wine front our host selected the house white, Utiel Requena Macebo called Capellana (€12.50) and a Rioja called 22 pies 2016 crianza, both honest.
For main course most of our group shared a substantial paella with Iberian pork, baby beans and mushrooms. For the rest of us we had a substantial lamb chop with apple sauce and an Ona·Nao burger.
Completing this enjoyable lunch were desserts of tiramisu and crema catalan, both homemade and delicious, followed by coffees and chopitos. As a bonus we enjoyed a great view of the beach and at an adjacent table some attractive neighbours…
