“Excellent location and value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Plenty of choices in red-meats, fish and shell-fish.
Very good attention to detail.
As most Spanish restaurant "proud" owner operated, and it does show.
Try the "rabas" as a starter and ask for any of the sea specials of the day.

“Excellent service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

We visited this restaurant after reading numerous good reviews and were not disappointed. There was a fantastic selection of fish, meat and wine served by outstandingly friendly waiting staff. The dining room got the balance of sophistication and relaxation perfectly.

“Amazing Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

We went to this restaurant in early November, and managed to book a table for a Friday night on the evening. The food was fantastic, some of the best I've ever had, and so was the wine. We paid around £100 which was absolutely worth our experience. The staff were extremely helpful, helping us translate the menu with a little booklet of translations. Everything was brilliant.

“Just great !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Everything is good in this restaurant. The service is very welcoming and decoration is nice. And food is great. We tried several plates; percebes (grate); pudding the cabracho (very fresh flavor pudding fish); fried calamari; One tasteful small crab and seafood croquettes. Really enjoyed, I am returning soon.

“First Class - An excellent experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We had an amazing meal at La Bombi, Santander.
The atmosphere is intimate, although there was a corporate table next to us, but not at all distracting. It seems to suit couples and meetings.
The food and wine is first class although it has prices to match.
If you want a guaranteed impressive experience, I cannot recommend this too highly.
The bar area is small and convivial and is the area while waiting for your table.
The restaurant itself doesn't open until 9pm which seems typical of the area.
Booking is mandatory to ensure a table.
Not sure of parking as we arrived by taxi.
It cannot be far off a michelin star.
One small improvement would be to decant the wine.
I'd go back any time.
