A nice place for a typical pinchos lunch/dinner! Definitely worth going and returning. Just, a little bit tight and messy- we payed for a couple extra pinchos because they dont write them down when you take them.. oh well, not a big problem.

Highly recommended and a love of tapas had us looking forward to Casa Lita. No help finding a table and little help explaining the system which is go and order what you fancy from the bar, where there are no labels or explanations. Wine good, beer cold so promising start. Explaining nut and crab allergies a struggle but managed. Tried... More

We happened on this lovely bar while exploring Santander before boarding the ferry home. We tried several varieties of seafood-based tapas, all of which were superb, as was the local rose wine with which we washed it down. Delightful.

This is a busy, good value, well run tapas and pincho bar, with great staff and a continuous supply of fresh food being delivered from the kitchen to the bar. You can sit inside or outside depending on the weather.

It is a Santander MUST! Several different tapas to choose from cheese to fish to meat it has it all. Personally I loved the black pudding and had 2 but there is a huge and tasty variety on offer. You go in and do the circle of tapas on display; then sit inside or out enjoying the matching wines (advice... More

We called in here on the back of Trip Advisor reviews and I have to say these were the best pinchos we had in Santander. We tried one of the three pinchos for E4 and had another couple with wine. All had an individual taste and were very well constructed and tasted delicious. The waiter explained what was in each... More

Casa Lita is very nice located. It's a cafe with a bar packed with all kinds of quite big pincho's on bread. Wine is a standard Rioja. Not special but okay. I expected a lot more from the pincho's. The selection is impressive, but they are a little stale. When you've made your selection of three or four pincho's, they... More

In 2003, we embarked with great enthusiasm in a gastronomic adventure. Our desire was to develop and consolidate Santander Spanish cuisine at its most traditional and popular way: "The pincho" . Reflecting the high quality of our skewers, Casa Lita has received numerous awards and various press mentions and appearances on television, both national and international.

High quality "pinchos" prepared at the moment.

Our cook, Joseba Guijarro , who in his long career has won a prestigious Michelin star , is in charge daily to buy on the market the freshest and best quality products to make "pinchos" you can taste daily in Casa Lita . All our "pinchos" come to the bar freshly made, as they are made ​​to order , so that our customers can enjoy this form of the best Spanish gastronomy through authentic cuisine of "pincho".
