Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Located opposite the famous Colegiata in one of Spain's most picturesque towns, Santillana del Mar in Cantabria. Fantastic meats cooked on open wood fired grill, very well-known locally for its delicious ribs. Extremely popular with tourists also, menus in all languages.

We ate here on our first night in the area and did not eat in Santillana again after the experience. The main dishes came with plain fries, the children's spaghetti with a cheap canned tomato sauce and the waitress was run off her feet and not shy about letting customers know she was not happy. Many better places to eat outside Santillana.

There are a lot of tourist traps here. This isn't one of them. A charming waitress took the order for ribs, which we could see cooking on a roaring fire.
They didn't disappoint. Well cooked, tasty and beautifully seasoned. All washed down with beers.

Perfect.

This is simple, well cooked food at realistic prices. The key thing is that it is full of Spanish people! Don't order spaghetti though, unless you are a fan of Heinz ! Go for something from the incredible grill !!

This is something to our best experiences when we had to eat at the tourist spots in Spain.

Casa Cossio is matching the competition around for 12 euros on the set menu, but the food quality is one of the best in the price range. Also, very big portions of the soups, hams, the fish (very well grilled and fresh) and ribs (straight from the BBQ in the first floor) make us feel just like staying at a friends' house whose grandma cooks the most homely country cooking for the guest.

Before leaving the area of Church of the Colegiata, recommend to drop by at the Ceramic workshop across the Casa Cossio. We found out one of the most crafted ceramic works, with very affordable prices there (compared with what we found out later in Andalusia)
