My wife and I went to Rampalay with family and friends for a few tapas and drinks. This bar was packed at the time we arrived (around 9:30 PM) so we had our drinks and pinchos outside. This kind of situation is pretty normal in many of the bars in that area, especially during weekends. The raciones and tapas that... More

We've been coming here for a few years now on our visits to Santander and have never been disappointed.

It was helpful to have someone on the staff who spoke better English than we did Spanish. We ordered the lamb ration between the two of us and we were served with a just right cooked half a leg of lamb with sauté potatoes. We had a mixed salad with it and that was more than enough for the two... More

We stop here looking to enjoyed a few pintxos and a drink and this place deliver this. Busy place, elaborate pintxos and really quick attentive service. May not be cheap compare to other places but it is a good value for money.

We were at that place for lunch in a birthday celebration with all the family. As usual some starters(clams, mussles, ...). We left some of them as they were not good. Second dish was a little bit better, but not exciting. Not a lot of possibilities to choice. Service was ok. Acceptable. In summary, a centric and well located place... More

My wife and I spent last Sunday night in Santander prior to our o/n ferry crossing the next day. By good luck more than anything we ended up eating here. The food is authentic, well priced and fresh! The tastes were fantastic and the atmosphere very authentically Northern Spanish. If we decide to stay over in Santander again we will... More

Good place to eat with varied food choices. This Santander restaurant gets quite busy, so obviously popular with locals. You can have a selection of the day menu (in English) which is helpful. Food was very tasty and waiters were polite, kind and have a welcoming smile. Good prices with a great atmosphere. Most enjoyable!

Everything was excellent! I really enjoyed the food and the white wine was pretty good as well. The octopus was so tender and tasty and the calamari as well. I also liked the tortilla and the mussles.
