Nice place

The food was very high quality, very tasty. The service was a bit un attentive. One thing to note they have the best cheese cake EVER home made very creamy un believable. A good option in Santander.

We ate in the restaurant Canadio at short notice when we arrived in Santander. We booked a table, and had to wait until the restaurant opened at 9.00pm so went for a walk in the old town to work up an appetite. I'm glad we waited, as if we had gone elsewhere we would have missed a hugely enjoyable meal,... More

Called here on a friday night, but fully booked, fully booked saturday and sunday as well, so we booked lunch on monday. The food freshly cooked in the nearby open kitchen is fantastic. Everything is of the best, service, ambiance, food, and drinks. We could not find anything to find fault with. Not cheap, but you have to pay for... More

The restaurant itself is very beautiful and spanish decorated and has the typical Spanish atmosphere. We only had the pinchos, which is a feast for they eye, as well as the mouth, in such a huge variety. The staff is more than friendly and even though it was very busy, kept smiling. I am sure that the food in the... More

We had lunch of tapas and local wine here before the ferry home and it was great value for interesting small plates, a cut above the usual fare on offer in Santander.

On our first night in Spain w were not disappointed with the culture of Pintxos. This bar served a fantastic selection of Pintxos and also good wine. Notable mentions go to the fried fish with eel and prawn, goats cheese and anchovy And the octopus but there must have been over 20 to chose from. We arrived at 8pm on... More

This modest size restaurant has surprised us with excellent cuisine, outstanding wines and wonderful service! T, while their restaurant area he front of the restaurant is mostly for tapas (appetizers of all types) while the rest of the restaurant provides a wonderful ambiance for a relaxed time with excellent food.

Canadio pinchos bar My wife and I went to Canadio restaurant the day we arrived in Santander. We went to the bar and ordered some of the best pinchos we ever had, together with a bottle of Albarino wine. It was a most enjoyable experience. This bar has a well earned reputation for the excellent pinchos they prepare.

I've eaten here a number of times now. We've used the restaurant and the bar and always had excellent food. Our latest visit involved tapas at the bar and it couldn't be faulted.
