One of the best meals I have had, certainly the best in Spain. This place is all about ingredients and flavour. All the meat and fish was matched with the most wonderful flavours. The wine was amazing too. Go, don't hesitate!

Very rude staff and not family friendly at all !! After all the good reviews we decided to have dinner at La Espina. When booked a table and I advised that we were families with babies. We felt very much unwelcome and the only reason we didn't leave the place is because it was very close to the hotel and... More

A wonderful place in Pechon where you can enjoy a home made meal with the excellent service provide by Estela and her time. The location is amazing, the food what can you say made by one of the most accredited chefs in Spain and the service provide by Estela with a wonderful smile makes a difference. Highly recommended

This restaurant is in the attractive and quiet village of Pechon. Quite frankly we were amazed to find such quality in such an "off the beaten track" sort of place. The views from the restaurant are amazing. One warning to non-Spanish speakers (like us!) - take a dictionary- no English menu here!. The food is home-cooked, inventive and Spanish. We... More

Had been walking a Sunday morning up the banks of the Nansa river and as no restaurant was organized we went discovering in Pechón. It's on the way out of the village on the way to the Arenas camping site. You have to turn left and go up an incline. We had a great meal - simple dishes the way... More

Went for the taster menu which was well worth the price! Very generous portions for a taster menu - I enjoyed every course! Beautifully presented and a lovely English speaking waiter and stunning sea view to boot. Utterly enjoyed the evening, and would certainly go again.

I visited this restaurant with two friends, we were on our way to get the ferry from Santander and we stopped off for something to eat. I don't think I have ever been so disappointed with a meal, the meat was very fatty and seemed to me to be a cheap cut. The menu said it came with salad but... More
