My husband and I were traveling through the north of Spain and spent the night in Santander. It was really late at night, so they recommended us to eat at this restaurant. The service was one of the best ever, even at that time of the night. We were greeted by the actual owner, who took care of us at... More

This place hit the spot. The steak was perfect. My wife had a fish dish. It was incredible. Even my 3 year old ate some steak.

This is a classic in Santander, known by many families. Great outside seating right on the Puertochicco marina in Castelar St close to downtown. This restaurant is well-known for its fresh fish and seafood, which we attested after eating a superb grilled "rodaballo" (turbot in English). Very professional and friendly staff.

This place was recomended by a family member who is a local to Santander. Excellent great to sample authentic Spanish cuisine. Seasonable infrequent very big portions, very attentive service. This place is where locals come to eat well by no means a touristy place. Very nice location on the promenade. Great meat, fish and starters. We had grilled meat (chuletón)... More

If you wish a good restaurant, with competent cooking of fresh fish and seafood, this is a fine place to go. The "rodaballo" was superb and the wine list was very balanced, with fair prices. The service is friendly and professional. It is a place to return to.

Beautiful fresh fish cooked simply but perfectly with good service. The kids are always made to feel welcome which is typical of Santander & Spain even in most bars at anytime which is something we should do... More

Superb fish and seafood. I shall dream of the perfectly cooked hake. The portion was enormous. The clams to start with were also absolutely delicious. Don't be afraid to share starters. They are vast and many people were also doing this. This is definitely one of the smart restaurants in town. On a Saturday night it was filled with locals.... More
