First time in Santander and Northern Spain, but not the first time in Spain. After several holidays in Southern Spain this Tapas Bar is what we read about, and have been searching for. It was Saturday night we managed to find a table, then we watched the other customers and how to go about ordering. Ordered the wine, very informal,... More

Only stayed for one drink and had intended to return but could not. The decor is dark, a small stage in the corner was being set up for a live act . The proprietor welcoming and kind and the wine was good. Feels like a nice bar you could while a way a couple of hours in, but I'd imagine... More

Did not get any pinchos here, but they looked really outstanding. The staff were working extremely hard, because this is extremely busy on a Saturday night. Got some nice drinks here, the bar is really a place to be seen, very posh.

Great bar, cafe and restaurant all in the same place, a lovely place for any occasion and the food and service were great, lovely tapas and one of the best bars I've been in in Santander.

We had pintxos here for dinner and all the dishes were delicious, the total bill for two of us with two drinks each plus around 10 pintxos was around 33 euros. The service was attentive and very patient with our limited Spanish (and some help in English). Would definitely recommend!

We were looking to kill time while waiting for the ferry back to Portsmouth and 'dared' to venture this far out & we were so pleased we did. Fab food, patient staff (as our Spanish is non existent) & relaxing atmosphere - highly recommend!

Our airbnb host told us to come here for "party time" it definitely wasn't a party atmosphere but everyone was enjoying themselves. People quickly came and went, ordering a tapas or two and a drink. I was just excited to sit with sangria and try the great food. Nothing was in English so we did struggle ordering stuff, luckily, the... More

The question is do you go here for tapas or dinner. Done both and both was good. Tapas allows you to try more variations, but if you are a group, nothing stops you from sharing some plates as starters.

A great place with buzz with excellent tapas . Even better if you can get a table around the bar area . The restaurant is sophisticated but always a great place to eat . I like the fact you can ask for half portions if not very hungry . All the food is good but in particular liked the salads... More
