Hands down the best seafood I had in Spain, such a good experience. Slightly more expensive than your average restaurant and very small inside but all worth it. Everything fresh, good portion sizes, great wine list. A must if in Santander.

Fantastic little gem. Awesome food and staff. The seafood is excellent. Crab and the Gooseneck barnacles were wonderful. Highly recommend.

This is an un prepossessing place but the fish is fantastic. Fresh, large portions and wide choice of fish. Some salads but not much else on offer. Families obviously welcome and great value for money.

We went there with my husband a few weeks ago and we had a fantastic experience. The place is nothing fancy, very simple, type of family restaurant so you can go in casual clothes after a whole day walking around in the city. Of course, the most important part is that the food was extremely yummy :) very very tasty... More

In search for a nice seafood meal on our last night in Santander, I thought of asking the locals where they could recommend and this place was well recommended. Unfortunately we share a different experience. The place was small and felt like a canteen instead of a restaurant. The pictures on the wall did create a different and nice feel... More

Worst experience ever. At the end of an average meal, lacking in taste, we ordered coffee. We were told to vacate our table and stand at the tiny bar counter, full with waiting clients. WHY??? It is their policy. The manager explained without much conviction. Does the same policy apply to the owners who were sitting next to us with... More
