Really good food but not tapas as we expect it, Casa Lita is a very nice, very busy restaurant and bar. There was a party of 10 of us and we sat outside which was fine and had a selection of very reasonably proved 'pinchos'...which is what they seemed to call tapas in Santander. They were all nice but the majority of the choices are toppings on a slice of crusty bread so not what we expected. To be fair all the other options for tapas style serving locally were the same so if you are not keen on a bread heavy meal then take care where you eat as it might not be for you. Also need to bear in mind that in Northern Spain, English is not widely spoken and many places do not have menus in languages other than Spanish.More

With a large selection along the waterfront, this is the one to try. Tasty gourmet pinchos that are the right size so that you can try several….will rerun on my next visit. Staff was friendly and patience in helping describe what was in every pincho….no...menus, just point and go.More

Tasty, generously sized Pintxos. Location great and staff were helpful. Some of the pintxos were missing something in terms of flavour (but this could be my high standard of food being half Italian lol) and some of the pintxos were overloaded with Mayo, The indoor...seating was limited & at least three tables were giant round, barrels making it a bit uncomfortable for eating.More

We visited on a couple's trip with friends for the weekend and found this spot local to our Air B&B. The food is amazing. It feels a very traditional Spanish setting. The quality of the food for the price and the wine is fab! We...visited twice on the trip and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Santander!More

This place feels very traditional, yet the staff were really kind and helpful. I asked for Pinchos without meat and they described ones suitable. The atmosphere is friendly and the food was very tasty. I would definitely visit again to try more!

The place appears well deserving of it's previous Michelin recommendations what with the vast array of pinchos available. Very reasonably priced, and washed down with some delicious Alberiño. Highly recommend going and seeing what pinchos tickle your fancy. Though we didn't ask what things were...and I ended up with haddock or cod with olives when I thought it was scallops with caviar (we live and learn). Sat outside and watched the world go by, the perfect ending to a holiday.More

Authentic tapas bar offering a wide selection of tapas from their counter. Reasonable selection of wines by the glass and helpful service made this a pleasant stop.

We were a family of five and visited early evening. A great selection of pintxo available and refreshed regularly. Good selection of drinks and plenty of seating. Very good value for money given the seafront location.

After eating in a few overpriced and frankly average restaurants near the main Sardina beach area we walked to the port region and found Casa Lita. What a piece of luck. Great service. Great good. Best of all, great prices.

Read about it here on Trip Adviser and it lived up to the great reviews. An amazing selection of pinchos and very good prices, even the wine. We sat inside in the booths and felt very comfortable. Nice friendly staff serving you too. Do it!!

Extremely friendly and helpful staff! As our Spanish isn’t the best, they went out of their way to explain the tapas on offer & gave us some recommendations. Every dish was so tasty, complimented with fantastic local wine. Extremely good value for money.

Pinxos we’re great, good variety. Bar staff were friendly. Cheap glasses of Rioja wines to try, which was nice. This is a bit of a tourist trap as the quality and value for money is better elsewhere
