This was a recommendation from a friend and honestly my family and I were all really pleased we'd made time to come here! For a non Spanish speaking person, I suppose the format is slightly confusing with the added problem of there being no signs to say what the food is. However, we had a waiter who spoke good enough...

Excellent lunch spot close to work. Excellent seafood and wine at very reasonable prices. The owner of restaurant will suggest the best items of the day. Don't ignore the recommendation! Very popular with the local folks.

Went for lunch and managed to get a small table before the rush (and it was a big rush, extremely busy). Nice selection of tapas laid out on the counter - not really any descriptions however and staff spoke little English. Was able to get the gist with broken Spanish however and staff were friendly. Food tasty but unspectacular when... More

What a happy find in Santander on our way home from mass tonight. Just when I thought I was finished with food and beverage for the day, we happened upon Casa Lita - a delightful fund of pinchos served up by helpful and happy wait staff. Cold beer. Wine. Fresh water. Well done. Going back for sure.

The rapidly changing array of pinchos is amazing, we have been before and played safe with food that we could easily recognise, but you really should just go for it, some of the flavours and tastes are simply amazing. If your in Santander you must sample the pinchos here, the best I've had anywhere in Spain!

Very nice little tapas bar. Not expensive. Friendly bar staff. Experience Spain on a small scale. We will visit again in the future.

We had arrived at Santznder bus station when a lovely American saw us looking at a map - he helped point us in the direction of our hotel and also recommended Casa Lita. We were not disappointed - we sat outside in the warm sun and although not much English spoken we managed to have 4 different pinchos which were... More
