Best Cantabrico fish and sea food at a very reasonably price. The staff its just great people! The restaurant its small but in the centre of the city so you can enyoy having a drink or an ice cream there are plenty of nice places around. Even though they do not accept reservation they will find you a place.

This is one of those gems that you would be unlikely to find without either Trip Advisor or a local recommendation. We arrived just before 8, had we been much later we would have been waiting or a table. By 8:30 there were several folks waiting at the bar and even some waiting outside on the street for a table....

Another triumph for Trip Advisor. A small fish restaurant/bar, off the beaten track. One of those places that you would be unlikely to find without TA. We arrived (two of us) just before 8, had we been much later we would have been waiting for a table. They did not appear to do bookings. Soon became very busy The Menu... More

Another place that might fool you if you judge it by its "cover". The Marucho doesn't look like much from the outside, and on the inside the place is a really small venue with its walls full of signed pictures of, I assume, famous people. As I said, don't be fooled. This is a great place where you can eat... More

A bustling friendly cosy restaurant that delivered fantastic fresh crab & delicious home made puds. A real find. We would definitely go back.

I had scorpionfish pudding and fish broth. Both were delicious. Crabs were also good. Calamari was ... calamari.

I found this tiny place after looking on Tripadvisor before visiting Santander last week and I must say that all the positive comments I read were well deserved! Place is tiny, true, and you might be asked to wait for a while...but you won't regret it! First, I noticed that it's a place where local connoisseurs go, and that is... More

If you like the freshest seafood and fish you cannot visit Santander without eating at Marucho's. The place is very informal but with character : food is superb, and waitresses make you feel far more than welcome. I had dinner with my wife who is not particularly found of seafood, yet she could not resist the temptation of the salpicon... More

Our hosts recommended this place which we would never have found if not for their directions. It is very small and we were lucky to get upstairs in the little attic space with 3 tables. Go early! Bob your head! We had such fun...we ordered the mixed salad which was just abundant with real cooked fish, egg, tomato, lettuce, olives... More
