What a find. Excellent.

Fantastic. All the fish and seafood you could ask for. Excellent service, great wine and the nicest staff. I guess always busy but we were lucky enough to get a little corner table for the four of us.

You will not find better food in Santander, or anywhere for that matter. They are proud of what they serve and everything is cooked to perfection. You cannot book, so you need to get there before 9pm as it fills up very quickly. Perfect balance of good food, wine, service and value. Love it there.

We loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The fish soup we had there was the best fish soup I've ever had. Totally recommended.

The Bar Marucha in Santander is the most amazing place. First of all the service was just wonderful. The whole stuff even at the bar or in the kitchen was extremely nice. We had a menu with a bottle of water and a bottle of wine for 18 Euros and the three courses were so delicious. Best value for money... More

For two of us this was a return visit. When in Santander this is a place we would not want to miss. We actually tried to eat here the previous night but timed our arrival badly. (Arrived at 8:30pm, the place was packed and there was no hope of a table until 10:00pm) So this night we were at the... More

Given the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor, we were a little disappointed with the food. Also the place is very small and the tables are very close to each other. Perhaps we were unlucky with our choice of fish dish because the place was full.

Not to be missed! This place has it all...delicious fresh fish and a terrific atmosphere. Locals and visitors fill this small, fairly insignificant looking place and with good reason - fab food. The food and the friendly service are why is has and why it keeps its reputation. We ate here on a Sunday night and rebooked for Monday night... More

Great place for seafood. It is a small place, which you may not notice on your. Come early to get a table. You will not be disappointed.

We went to this place on recommendation of a local. Being slightly on the late side for lunch, we had to wait for about half an hour, the waitress took down our mobile phone and called us when a table freed up. At that time we had the first glass of wine outside and nibbled on the snacks from the... More
