As a non local, you will be overlooked and probably you don't get any service. Zero points from me. Go somewhere else instead!!!

Certainly one of the best Tapas restaurants in Santander. Freshly made tapas arrives all the time with a good choice of wine. They will talk to you in English and even happy to make you a cup of tea! Friendly staff and spotlessly clean. Just be aware that Casa Lita is closed on Mondays!

Over priced for mediocre food and the beer is rubbish. Was not happy with service really they seemed more interested in the locals rather than the tourists.

Stopped by at this place which is recommended by Brittany Ferries as a good place to seek tapas when in Santander. Excellent range of food available, service spot on with our server making great efforts to engage with us in English - sadly my Spanish isn't so good - and prices highly competitive at 2.50 Euros per plate. Obviously extremely... More

We searched on tripadvisor and found casa Lita had good reviews, it's definitely visited by the locals, therefore well worth a try in our opinion. It's tapas only, the trays are constantly arriving behind the counter, they are no doubt it's freshly made but the quality is standard. The staff were friendly and helpful in the dish description, although most... More

Came across this by chance but while enjoying the large and varied selection of pintxos saw that Casa Lita's chef has worked in Michelin starred restaurants. Creativity and quality shows.

We were here a few years ago and were rewarded with the same quality food and service. Right on the front the bar is popular throughout the day with mainly locals. Good selection of quality tapas and wines at reasonable prices.

My party made the last minute decision to run out to Santander while on a weekend trip to Bilbao. TripAdvisor ranked Casa Lita at #4 when I was looking for a place to eat. After our visit, I think this rating is well deserved. Location is prime, on the paseo by the harbor. Service is unbeatable, the staff were extremely... More

I encourage everybody to go have lunch/dinner at this place because: 1. It is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Santander 2. The quality of the food is out of this world. I have litterally never tried anything so carefully made and so tasty in my life. 3. Excellent service. The waiters were very professional and yet... More

My wife and two friends spent a wonderful hour or two here completely overwhelmed by the wonderful food, the choice of almost 100 different Pincho's/Tapa's and great wines and cool beer. The atmosphere was alive with people thoroughly enjoying the superb options and the very friendly staff. The place was packed, and has been since it opened some 10 years... More
