About
Jardin Gil Blas is in Parador Gil Blas, a famous "casona" built ath the end century XVII. The culinary offerings at our restaurant, El Jardin de Gil Blas, are based on traditional Cantabrian cuisine. We especially recommend our cocido montanes (bean and pork stew). Or enjoy grilled Tudanca beef sirloin with vegetable ratatouille and potato pie, turbot steak or an excellent Cantabrian cheese plate. And for a sweet finish, sample our homemade desserts, including tarta Santa Juliana (cheesecake with a cookie base topped with peach preserves), grandmother's special dessert (custard with ice cream, meringue and a touch of liqueur), and torrija pasiega (French toast) with ice cream or sorbet.

We always include the breakfast buffet when we stay in Spain's Paradores. The choice is abundant and will set you up nicely until dinner time. What is not to like?! Fabulous!

For Coeliacs the offer of a "fruit salad" for desert when you have probably had to have fruit for breakfast is lazy I suggest. What's wrong with rice pudding, creme caramel, ice cream or sorbet? I was told I could not have ice cream or...More

On a tour of the area we dropped in here for coffee and lovely pastries. It is a beautiful building in the beautiful town of Santillana del Mar. It was only a brief visit but very enjoyable.
