First night in Spain and stopped off in Laredo on way to San Sebastián but if I do this in future will always stop off in Laredo ( Hotel Monte Cristo great as well). Table booked at 2030 on a festival night in Laredo whole place buzzing and five minute walk to restaurant. Shown to table and everyone in restaurant... More

Location is brilliant, if you have to be in Laredo. The Rabas were wonderful but not any better than good fried squid anywhere else. Smokers in the eating area was off putting as there wasn't enough ventilation, and closeness to the sea would be great if you could see through the plexiglass...

My wife and I visited Laredo for our anniversary after a good friend recommended El Pescador. It is situated along the promenade next to the beautiful long and deep beech. I have never ever been treated so well in a restaurant. The staff were attentive and very helpful in guiding us through the menu. We ordered the grilled Langoustines and... More

Every time we visit laredo we come to el pescador for rabas (and beer). They are extremely good. They are tender with a crispy light coating...the best ive had anywhere. The views of the beach, especialy at sunset, make it a wonderful place to relax after a long walk on the beach. We ate in the restaurant once as well,... More

An excellent choice off the boardwalk: very fresh shellfish, seafood, and fish. The clams were tasty. The fish was very well presented – a bit too big a piece for me. The bonito (fresh or escabeche) is too good! The desert (if you have room), excellent.

Stopped off here more by luck than judgement, looking for a place to take a quick break on the way to Santander to catch the ferry back. Managed to find a car park space nearby that would also take our trailer so popped in for a bit of lunch & pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed fresh clams, octopus & good salads.... More
