Great tapas

Try the manchego one. Best tapa I ever had. People are great, good taps, nice wine and good price. Worth for a quick tapas break after enjoying the beach.

Excellent food and service. my recommendation is to arrive just before 2000 (8pm), sit at the bar, and enjoy before the crowd arrives. I highly recommend!!

This pinxtos bar was recommended by a local to us as being one of the most authentic ones in Santander. We weren't disappointed! After having visited several pinxtos bars at the Basque coast in the previous week, we knew what to expect. At Casa Lita it was quite crowded with visitors, both Spanish people and tourists, but the logistics have... More

What a disappointment, not one to complain, but I don't get the hype about this place. We love our food and are not picky eaters. But this place reminded me of petrol station tapas if they had it. Barely luke warm with soggy bread. Would not go back considering the quality every where else.

In Santander for 3 nights, our hotel owner recommended Casa Lita as one of the best in Santander for Pincho's. There was a large selection to choose from and my wife and I had 3 each, one with Serrano ham and mushrooms, another with a type of Bolognaise sauce and peppers and the third which I believe was sweetbreads but...

Located on the seafront in Santander. We have visited this tapas bar a few times and always received friendly, helpful service. Always very busy so you may have to stand or lean against the bar. Great selection of different tapas not just the usual tortilla etc. Staff advised us of what the different tapas consisted of so we were able... More

We found Casa Lita last year when travelling to Santander to catch the ferry and made a special effort to return again two weeks ago. On both visits we found the staff friendly and someone with good English prepared to take the time to describe the various tapas selections to us. The food is really tasty, very different from the...
