Never, ever go to this restaurant!! When we told them we wanted the menu of the day they made us sit outside (the restaurant was empty inside, but they were keeping that in case they had any à la carte clients), and it was a cold day, so not pleasant.

this place has a fabulous location, but as soon as you walk by you can tell they aren't even trying. we had a drink at the bar and they made absolutely no effort to entice us to have a tapas or order anything from the menu. the menu is uninspiring anyway. we enjoyed our cold beer and left. best decision...

This restaurant offers an inviting range of seafood, but as a solo traveller I opted for the 10€ menu del dia, 3 courses including wine & bread. No complaints – sardines a little over-salted, but a good squeeze of lemon juice helped there – & when I return to Cantabria in August with my wife I plan to revisit this... More
