Very attractive interior, warm but not stuffy, very welcoming staff (esp. the gentleman with the cornrows - he was so sweet and helpful!!!). Food is simply amazing (I had steak tartare, which was a perfect blend of several tastes and textures - unlike anything I had before, and delicious. My friends had lamb shoulder and hake croquettes- loved them. We... More

First visit to Santander... nice to see more locals than tourists, maybe the city isn't very pretty, but places like Canadio are 'real' and local. Located in the square, it has a long pincho bar down the right side, with sitting and standing tables on the left. We were there on a Saturday around 10pm, it was already crowded. The... More

We try to have dinner in this restaurant in all our visits to Santander. This time, it had been refurbished and now it is even nicer. The service goes on being excellent. The food, this time, was not as great as before, but may be we did not do the best ellection.

We to went to cañadio for some pinchos during the night. Definetely a right desition. The variety of pinchos is really wide, elaborated and good quality. Pinchos is similar to the concept of tapa, but in a different format or presentation. The quality of the service really good. Always taking care of clients, giving good advice and answering all the... More

I wanted to book the private salon for 12 people in December. They tell me that there would be only one menu available to us. Fine. Since it's an office dinner and to avoid any surprises, I asked the menu to be emailed to me. They said "the menu is not on the internet nor can we email it to... More

First time in Santander and Northern Spain, but not the first time in Spain. After several holidays in Southern Spain this Tapas Bar is what we read about, and have been searching for. It was Saturday night we managed to find a table, then we watched the other customers and how to go about ordering. Ordered the wine, very informal,... More

Only stayed for one drink and had intended to return but could not. The decor is dark, a small stage in the corner was being set up for a live act . The proprietor welcoming and kind and the wine was good. Feels like a nice bar you could while a way a couple of hours in, but I'd imagine... More

Did not get any pinchos here, but they looked really outstanding. The staff were working extremely hard, because this is extremely busy on a Saturday night. Got some nice drinks here, the bar is really a place to be seen, very posh.
