We were hungry and looking to eat. We chose this restaurant because it was near our hotel and some of the others had weddings etc going on. The food was OK but not all fresh ingredients. A basic cheap meal which was delivered to our tables very rapidy.

Food was not good but I didn't expect it to be. I wanted something quick and cheap but I ended up being very sick. Will not go there again!

Of all the places in Santander I had to walk into this dump. My mind was somewhere else when she said this looks ok!! Food cold, tasteless and rotten. Service sloppy. Go with my instinct in future and just keep walking.

Food was good but atmosphere was not so great as some other local places. The waiter tried hard with us and our limited spanish.

1 lata de atún del super que te abren 8euros. Trocitos de queso 7euros lo que equivale a más de 1 euro el dedito de queso. Do not go. This is the biggest rip off the history. They serve you OK food that you can find better in the supermarket and charge you a gourmet meal for it. They are... More

We were on a quick stopover en route to Asturias. We already wasted a lot of time trying to find somewhere to park. Santander in August is not a fun place to be. It was quite late already and we needed to have lunch. This was the spot we chose. It was August, like I said. Everywhere was busy. Perhaps... More

There was one staff who spoke English which helped us to have a great meal. We ordered based on her recommendations which truly did not disappoint. In general, we found nearby restaurants' staff tend to not be overly friendly or patient with non-Spanish speakers, but the staff here great, as was the food. Price was reasonable relative to other nearby... More
