This was a truly delightful dining experience! We arrived after making online reservations, to find that the host had sent us a response while we were in transit, explaining that they were overbooked with a large group of 30! However, after showing us his online response, he led us into the rather small dining room, and there were two open... More

From the reviews we had read we expected the wine to be good here and the food maybe a bit tapasy. But it was a true culinary experience and some of the best food we experienced during our tour of Northern Spain. We were able to get a booking at very short notice on a busy Saturday night by virtue... More

It truly is the beat restaurant in Santander. We felt at home from the start, and the waiters were highly professional. The food was literally breath-taking! Fish, jamon ect and the deserts. Even for myself, a vegetarian there was an amazing option of mushroom carpaccio and another plate of egg, asparagus and cheese+potato mousse with trufle sprinkled on top.. even... More

Had a delicious meal here. The service was friendly and helpful. I especially liked the steak tartar! The crema de queso dessert was also exceptional.

Thank you so much to the owner and Maitre d', Koldo, who I knew many years ago before he became an owner. He is still the perfect, charming, helpful and very informative host and made our evening, the first in this restaurant, a delight. Every dish was a taste sensation of the highest quality. The recommended wine pairings were perfect.... More

I would advise to make a reservation here - we just walked in and got the last table in the bar! Service was amazing, bread was delicious, I had the duck and it was tasty yet the portions are huge (don't eat too much bread) and my sister had the swordfish - again huge portions. We drank every drop of... More

Had some good wine & food for a reasonable price. Service was not that friendly. Food was just put on the table. I visited more places were nobody speaks English but still got very friendly service. I guess it's me, I like to exchange a smile. Still, the wine was good...

It's all about flavors in La Vinoteca. I got there at 8.45pm to be first to arrive (late for me). Koldo (owner/manager?) is the face and personality of La Vinoteca but also has a competent staff with him. His English is better than he admits. It was slightly confusing in that the al a carte menu is the basis of... More

The price was more than the value. The ceviche was the best thing on the menu. The lobster lasagna was cold and too watery for my taste. Squid in ink with rice also excellent. Staff was excellent.
