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.

"Simply the best pinchos in town" Great for a glass of wine and pinchos. The choice is enormous and most of it very tasty indeed. Friendly staff and buzzy atmosphere in the evening. I love grazing through the bites and sipping a couple of glasses of red whilst enjoying the company of family & friends

Casa Lita has the best pinchos in Santander. It has won a number of awards Barmen very friendly they ring a bell if you tip them. Very very busy 10pm on-wards Many different pinchos always refreshing plates from their kitchens. Fantastic chocolate cake for desert

We've been in a lot of restaurants in Santander and we have our favourites but Casa Lita, after this summer, has definitely earned a place in that list. If you are two or three and are not a picky eater I would recommend standing at the bar and ask the waiter what you should try. They have excellent service, great... More

Good option to have a wide range of tapas in Santander. Amstel beer in draught. It gets very busy and too crowded in peak times. Better go early in order to avoid crowds. Try the curry chicken tapa.

We found this place by chance and later we got to know that is the best place for tapas in Santander. We liked the atmosphere very much! One of the waiters spoke English and was very helpful. He gave us good recommendation what to taste.

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
