Tables and decor are like restaurant bars in the 60's but everything makes up for it . The staff are so friendly- all of them . Service and attention to detail excellent and all goo very good ....

I had already heard about this place. You cannot book a table. Just go there and if it is early will be easier to find a free seat. We were 4 and we ordered some appetizer and then a main course. Take into account the daynof the week, but especially the season of the year to order seafood. It was... More

We went for lunch as our host in Santander recommended us this place. We had to book because the place is small and gets very busy. We had some local wine and some tostas with cheese and piquillo peppers to start. Then we had some amazing seafood plates like almejas a la marinera and albóndigas de rape with sauce. The... More

The seafood variety was great! I waited for approximately one hour, albeit: the wait was very well worth the experience!

I read great review for Marucho, so we decided to visit this place. We were there around 02:30 pm and it outside people were standing, drinking and snacking. Inside was full, but the owner took my phone number and 20 min later she called and said there is a table for us. And it was good decision that we waited... More

The place is nice and the quality of food (fish) is very good for some dishes and a bit less for other one but I suggest to try this restaurant. Also the wine was good and the price is not so high compared to quality of fish.I recommend to book or to go before 9:00pm. Try it!

This place fills up really quickly so be sure you come early or make a booking in advance; it took us two tries to get a table. But you can see why: the food is great! It has the appeal of a restaurant frequented by locals and has delicious seafood made from fresh ingredients. Staff is friendly and catered well... More
