Mmmm... Basque food, family style.

The Noriega Hotel was founded by Faustino Noriega in 1893. Taken over in 1931 by Juan and Gracianna Elizalde and has been operated by her family ever since.

The original Hotel, after many years, became a boarding house for men only. In 1940 the restaurant business was such that it became necessary to expand, and the present bar and dining room were added.

The Noriega Hotel is still the hub of the Basque community and continues to serve exceptional meals to the public as well.
