I recently stayed with two friends in santander and went here. We arrived in and the place was packed which was a good sign. We had 3 courses and for our starters and mains we all had very different foods which were all delicious. the layout of the place was very authentic and the service good also. After fumbling with the spanish menus they brought out the english ones to help us along! The food was fantastic. On my holiday this was the best meal we had and it was very reasonable when the wine was thrown in also. i would defintely go back. it was very authentic which is what we wanted. oh and we didnt begin until 2300 which was very spanish too. Mucho Bueno

This is a great place to visit for Pintxos and some wine. The location and atmosphere are great but time it right as it's a busy place, from 9:30pm onwards seemed to work well for us. The food is good although I did find some of the dishes a little greasy, it didn't spoil the overall experience though. Try to sit at the bar and watch what the locals are ordering and then go for it. Enjoy !

I went there twice in a week with two different groups of friends. They all enjoyed everything we asked for.

We had 'Pastel de cabracho' (scorpionfish cake) - delicious and really good for sharing.'Maganos encebollados' - depending on the day, they may not have them. 'Huevos con jamón y habas', 'Rissoto con setas' and desserts (all of them were great).

We also had wines and they were good. Prices are OK. Not the cheapest place but good quality-cost relationship.

If you are nearby and you are a group of friends, go there and ask for some dishes to share among all of you.
