I have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions. It never disappoints. Great food! The seafood is excellent (the Merluza is fantastic).

Will always be back when I am in Santander.

We came here as we were staying in a nearby hotel after arriving on the evening ferry from the UK and it seemed to be highly recommended on Tripadvisor - and rightly so.
Our hotel booked a table for us (probably not necessary on a Wednesday evening at the end of August), and we were greeted warmly and shown to our table without any formalities. Although not a tourist restaurant (it is rather off the usual holiday beat), at least a couple of the staff (including our very friendly and helpful waiter) spoke some English and seemed happy to use it. They also provided a menu in English (although some of the translations were worth a visit on their own!), which made our choice easier.
After we had ordered they brought home made bread - warm and with an unusual but very enjoyable flavour. We shared a starter of anchovies (they were very happy to provide two plates, which was just as well as the main course was quite generous). Unlike the anchovies you usually find in the UK, they were about six inches long, very flavoursome and not too salty.
For our main we had their last portion of sea bass, served roasted and with potatoes. It came semi-filleted on the backbone but it proved unexpectedly easy to get the flesh off without mouthfuls of bones. And it was delicious - very moist, tender and tasty.
We also had a couple of glasses of wine - we asked for a recommendation, which proved to be just right for the fish, and they charged by the proportion of the bottle that we had used. Moreover, their estimate was generous (to us) and, unlike some places, the wine they suggested was very reasonably priced (it cam to about 8 Euros for nearly half a bottle).
Add in the couple of "on the house" offerings (a mise-en-bouche before the starter came and a glass of grappa at the end of the meal), and the total of just over £50 for the two of use seemed very reasonable.

Tucked away far from the typical tourist places you will find one of the most incredible restaurants for seafood. The "rabas" are the best in town.

We came here because of the excellent trip advisor reviews, and haven't disappointed. Even it likes a restaurant for local people and we cannot speak Spanish, but no problems, the owners are very friendly and get everything we needed. Very good ambient and foods are the best in our Santander trip. After the dinner, there's another party in town and no taxi available, so the owner's sister kindly drove us back to the hotel.
