ADDITIONAL RESTAURANTS IN THE AREA:

Puente Arce:
South of Mogro along the Rio Pas river is Puente Arce. It has a few very good restaurants worth visiting.

From Mogro, cross the freeway overpass and continue along the Rio Pas river a few kilometers.  At the next main road crossing, you will see a bridge to the left.  This is Puente Arce.  Straight across the road at the intersection there is a modern restaurant/bar called La Puentecilla.  It has good food and drinks in a modern decor usually with lots of people enjoying the terrace.

If you continue two blocks along this small road you will see a park on your left and an old roman bridge crossing the river.  Park here and you will see two restaurants of the other side of the street.

Casa Setien has a high reputation and interesting interior design.  They also have the less formal restaurant with a big front patio next to it towards the bridge.  Both are good depending on what you feel like.  The one with the patio will have football games on the tv’s and lots of people watching.

El Nuevo Molino is also well regarded and is interesting because it is in an 18th century manor house.

Santander:
In the city center we like to go for tapas, wandering from one place to the next eating what is available on the bar displays.  There are a few that we prefer and each also serves sit down dinners.

Bodega Cigaleña
Bodega del Riojano
Rampalaya
Restaurante Cañadio
Asubio Gastrobar

La Bombi (fancy, expensive modern cuisine)
Casa Lita (tapas only)
Bar La Cruz Blanca (typical bar and grill food, not fancy, with televisions to watch football games, relax and drink lots of beer.)
Barrio Pesquero (Various restaurants in the fisherman’s neighborhood in the port at the entrance to Santander. Fresh catch and casual eating.)
Restaurante Maremondo (On the Sardinero beach with great views.)

Suances:
Suances is a party town that is packed during the summer.  The port area is the main spot with lots of bars and restaurants of varying quality. Lots of action, dancing and partying all night, and on the water to walk around.  La Darseña and La Armita are known to be the better restaurants.  You can also go up towards the lighthouse for a nice walk and find a few quiet restaurants overlooking Playa de los Locos beach. One of the best view restaurants in Cantabria is El Mirador de Suso with an all-you-can-eat menu for about 22€ per person (inside is nothing special, but the view is fantastic, the food is good, and easy parking).

Santillana del Mar:
This historic town is worth visiting and has many restaurants in converted palaces and mansions. Here are some well regarded restaurants.

Hotel Casa del Marques
Parador de Santillana Gil Blas
Palacio Mijares
Casa Cassio  (A good barbecue grill restaurant just across from the Cathedral, looking at it on the right. So much red meat on the fire it makes you feel like you are in the middle ages.)

Hope this helps!
