Wonderful lunch which lived up to the high Trip Advisor ranking

Stopped here on the way from Bilbao to Santillana del Mer based on Trip Advisor recommendations. It most certainly lived up to expectations - yes a little pretentious, yes a little expensive compared to the rest of the town but still cheap compared to high end restaurants in London which is the... read more

It is a very neat little place with very nice staff, vegetarian and vegan friendly too! I highly encourage to ask the chef to bedazzle you! On that note, it is pretentious friendly too...

Northern Spain/Basque Country is a bar snackers delight, a pintxo here and a tapa there, but if you ever find yourself in Laredo then Somera is a must. The food is not the usual fare, rather an imaginative take on standard tapa and a fusion of styles from around the globe. The chicken dumplings with picante sauce a particular favourite.... More

We tried this tapas restaurant given the reviews read here. Unfortunately, we found it simply pretentious and expensive. It may be the best that Laredo has to offer but it didn't compare well with the many others we dined at on our holiday in this region of Spain.

I really like places which are detail oriented. Somera is definitely one of them. We had there some pinchos, hamburger, tuna and amazing desserts. One thing which was common for this dishes was care of details. The texture and flavor of each course were planned and made them an unforgettable experience. I have to say that croquettes were the best... More

Whilst staying in Laredo for the weekend we found Somera online and decided to try it out. And how glad we are that we did! The restaurant has a lovely modern style and the staff were very welcoming and attentive. The highlight of this restaurant though is without doubt the food. The chef clearly knows what he's doing, the food... More

This was a lucky find in Laredo.. The food was delicious. Fine Spanish cuisine and yet it had its own edge. The restaurant/bar is modern and silique with a great atmosphere. My only complaint, portions are quite small so order lots, it's worth it!!!!

This place has reopenned with a new look and a new twist on the traditional items you might find around town. The presentation is wonderful, but the flovor profiles are what really stand out. The modern techniques used might be found in san sebastian, bilbao, or vitoria pintxos, but to find this quality of cooking in laredo was a huge... More

Arrived and waiter told it was the first night open again. We tasted the croquetas and langoustine and knew it was good. Rabas had a very fine taste with fine lemon spoom and anchoas had a very soft taste. Pastel queso a cheesecake in a surprising manner , bonbons liquidos a surprise in itself. Nice to have been here on... More
