Amazing quality and quantity. For 20euro per person you get a whole experience of local food with incredible cocido montañés. Just pasta should be removed from menu. It doesn't fit there:) Otherwise incredible place! Must visit!

Service is very good and food too. You can buy treats to bring back home and they are really good. The best part is the trip, which takes you around beautiful rural Cantabria, Spain.
