Santander Gastronomic Guide for Visitors


Below yo can find a brief gastronomic guide of the town of Santander. It has been elaborated following my particular taste rather than essence of usefulness. Nevertheless I hope it will be profitable. Restaurants are listed by alphabetical order. The (*) means about ten minutes walk from the University. Any case it takes about five minutes using either public transport from the Faculty or taxi to reach the furthest recommended restaurant enclosed in this selection. Take into account that taxi is a cheap service in Santander.

Best wishes,
José Luis Montaña
On behalf of the Local Arrangement Committee

Some good restaurants in Santander

The food and drinks in Spain are without a doubt a fantastic sensation for the taste buds. You can choose from cheeses, tapas, paellas and an abundance of sea food.
