Small Mom and Pop bar/restaurant. Very tasty fresh seafood. We had the most delicious fish soup which was enough for 4 people. We also had the fried calamari which was very tender, and a sea bass cooked to perfection. Great service, and great prices.

We stopped by Santander for 1 day during our holidays. And enjoyed dishes here in Marucho. It tastes like very localized dishes and delicious.
