The food was great. They had some set menus that you can share. The place is original and beautiful. It was elegant and quiet. It is good for special occasions.

The place is beautiful and the location is great. However, food is not up to the stardards they claim. Pasta was good but everything else was soaked in oil. Almost inedible.

This was one of the best meals we had in Santander. Although the menu was rather confusing, we finally chose the 'tasting' menus , which were absolutely wonderful. This also meant that we didn't have to spend ages choosing individual starters etc because they were all included in the menu, and also you felt you were able to sample lots... More

I've ben to this restaurant many times over the years: I made the fatal mistake of ordering a standard lunch menu, (16 Eur)which was quite poor in quality. The place has been decorated and modernised somewhat but the quality is at the moment suffering.. Considering the fact that Zacarias used to have a quite good reputation, a great setting and...
