Restaurant name - Zana Kebab Restaurant

Restaurant address - Calle Virgen del Rosario Local 10,

Telephone number - 966 922 779

Comments - "If you're looking for any good places to eat in La Mata, this is it. The food in Zana Kebab is absolutely delicious!!
 When we stayed in a holiday apartment by the beach in La Mata, Zana Kebab was only a few 100 yards from the apartment, so didn't have far to go for good food.  The kebabs there are excellent and the other meals there are very good as well.
Also good service from the helpful and friendly staff.  You can either sit inside the restaurant, or sit outside, just a couple of yards to the beach, looking out to sea. Brilliant.  To find the kebab restaurant, walking away from the main Church square in La  Mata, and walking alongside the beach, with the beach on your left, go past a few other bars and restaurants there on the right and you'll see Zana Kebab just on the far corner at the end on the right."
Gill and family, Stockport, Cheshire, England.

Comments - "Have to agree with the comments above. Have always enjoyed the meals at Zanas kebabs in La Mata.  They do other meals apart from kebabs, but every meal I've had there over the years of all types, has always been really good.Restaurants in La Mata
There's quite a few Chinese, Indian, German, Italian and Spanish restaurants in La Mata, but this is the only kebab restaurant in La Mata that we've found.  When myself and my husband are on holiday in La Mata (we go for 2 weeks, twice a year), going out for a meal every couple of days, we try get to Zanas at least once a week.  The next time you go in there, say hello from us 'Karen and Steve from Clifton in Nottingham'.
Also, when we've been back to La Mata over the winter, it's even been warm enough some days, to just sit outside with a nice meal and drink and look out to sea across the beach in the early evening."
Karen and Steve, Clifton, Nottingham, England.
