Reviewed 11 September 2016 via mobile

Having been in Santander for a week and eaten at a number of restaurants, in terms of food quality and taste this was the best so far. The inside was nice and clean and the tables were laid out with attention to detail. The staff were helpful and sought to explain anything we were not sure of. I needn't had translated their menu before going as they had one in English - though oddly that wasn't the case when it came to the dessert menu! We had the Grilled Sea Bass and Hake stuffed with the crab sauce, along with a mixed salad. Although this was the most expensive meal we had had with the bill coming to over €70, which included a bottle of water and an apple juice, we were happy to pay on this occasion for the treat to our taste buds.

Nice dining room, attentive staff, very good varity of fish dishes. We had rice with lobster. Delicious and good portions. We came 8.00 pm and that was probably a bit early. We were the only ones in the dining section the first half hour. When we left it was almost full.

if you are looking for a place with fine And fresh fish, prepared according to local recipes, And need a Pleasant setting for your guests, look no further! The list of fish preparations is endless, And if you are not familiar with local cuisine, have someone advice you. Shellfish is gorgeous, fish is always fresh, wine variety is also suitable. Not much english spoken, but thats part of the game, and in the end mutual understanding is reached Anyhow!

We were there for a romantic dinner and from the first moment we had kind attention from the waitress. She provided explanation of the menu with a book that had all the pictures of the fishes and their translation in several languages. We opt for cold and warm starters, including oysters and shrimps. Both were outstandingly fresh and tasty. As a main we got a fish cooked in salt, it was amazing! Really recommend this place if you are a fun of fish and you like excellence in service!

Apparently, paella should only be eaten at lunchtime...so I got some advice and headed to La Mulata (Monday is also not the best time for seafood....) Possibly not the most inviting place from the outside, inside the staff were extremely friendly and gave us a large table. Having explained all the fresh fish that were available we asked for the local Paella, with seafood, and they suggested a small starter while we waited (don't be out off my quite high starter prices - they offered me a half portion, which was quite big enough). I went for Scorpion Fish Pudding as it sounded great and it was an excellent fish pate. The Paella was wonderful and got better the longer you can delay gratification and leave it in the pan (ie second helpings are great!). I was too weak to turn down a triple chocolate dessert which was a bomb of.....3 different chocolates! Heavy!!
The fish served to other guests looked great! Recommended
