NOJA by Cotton

Located in the heart of Ibiza town, the intimate and exclusive new NOJA by Cotton presents a traditional Japanese culinary experience with an elegant fine dining touch, all year round.

Discreetly tucked away in a side street in the heart of Ibiza town, NOJA takes discerning diners back to the roots of ancient Japanese cuisine via the coastal mountains and icy fjords of Norway. The intimate fine dining restaurant is the first of its kind in Ibiza – a refined and elegant space created by Cotton Lifestyle Group with a capacity for just 24 diners at any one time (14 at the bar and five additional tables of two), where the highest quality ingredients are prepared on the spot using age-old techniques in a way that is akin to fine art.

Taking inspiration from Edo era Japan (1603 to 1867) and building on it with the famous coldwater fish of Norway, there is no specific menu at NOJA. Here, the dedicated sushi masters at NOJA prepare each piece Omakase-style which translates to chef’s personal recommendation. Delicately crafted morsels are served one by one so the freshness, flavour and purity of each ingredient can be enjoyed with the respect it deserves, uniting these two very different parts of the world through a pride and passion for raw fish-based cuisine.

In addition to sophisticated sushi, Norwegian Rakfisk, most often made from trout, char-salted and fermented for up to seven months – will be available at NOJA, served with sour cream and onion and subject to availability alongside other uniquely Nordic ingredients like smoked and marinated fish and seafood, løyrom caviar, ryebread, blinis and more. The icy cold waters of Norway are renowned for producing some of the finest quality crab, salmon, cod and lobster in the world – the dogmatic precision with which dishes are calibrated at this exclusive Ibiza fine dining restaurant means each mouthful is savoured at the optimal moment.

Short grain rice is prepared and vinegared specifically for each table at NOJA and the carefully stored fish is unwrapped and sliced just before serving to maintain maximum freshness and flavour. Only the finest, cleanest fish is sustainably sourced – wild wherever possible, and ethically farmed in the Norwegian fjords. Rice, wasabi root, vegetables and homemade soya sauces are procured for their quality regardless of cost and only the best premium green tea, fine Champagne, crisp white wine and high-end sakes are on the menu. The result of this insatiable quest for excellence is exemplary preparation, deep, complex flavours and an unforgettable Ibiza fine dining experience.

Sleek blond wood countertops glow softly in the low-lit contemporary space, where decoration is minimal; here, the emphasis is on experiencing the moment, and delighting the senses. Handmade tableware highlights the beauty of the fresh, first-class cuisine on offer and NOJA operates a strict reservation time policy that extends beyond reasons of etiquette.

While tradition and authenticity underpin the NOJA experience, it comes as no surprise the team also embraces innovation. The Ibiza fine dining restaurant is dedicated to developing new ideas and flavour combinations, while constantly evolving its made-to-order menu. Designed for sushi purists, fine dining devotees and those seeking a culinary experience in Ibiza that appeals to all the senses, NOJA has its sights set firmly on becoming one of the world’s pre-eminent raw cuisine destinations.
