“Great but not cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Probably one of the best places to eat in Santander. I usually go there once or twice a year. Clams (almejas) are great. This last time I also had 'Bonito' (tuna from northern Spain - it's good during summertime) and was delicious. It was a recommendation from the waiter. My grandmother had Red Mullets (salmonetes) and I bet she enjoyed them. She is from Santander and she knows what a good fish is.

I have to recognize that it's not a cheap place but it's totally worthy. They will not dissapoint you.

“La Bombi good choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

The restaurant has the typical North of Spain fare, in a very nice setting. There is a facy dining room, and also a bar. Excellent fish, the croquetas are also good. A little pricey, but worth it!

“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.
