Boga Boga restaurant in San Vicente de la Barquera

La Sixtina Restaurant

It is located near the center of Santander on Calle del Sol number 47. It is a restaurant that mixes traditional cuisine with modern touches of nouvelle cuisine with a good presentation and a contrast of the usual products with interesting more modern combinations . The restaurant is intimate and houses few tables.

The fusion of the kitchen comes from the hand of May's traditional style and the avant-garde advances of his son Michelangelo who, on the day we visited the place, was traveling to Copenhagen learning about the techniques of Noma, the best restaurant of the world according to the new list of the San Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants.

We enjoy a six-course tasting menu including delicious house croquettes, shrimp battered with avocado sauce, a mini hamburger with tartar sauce, hake with cocochas and we finish with a chocolate mouse brownie and tangerine ice cream.

Average price: about 50 euros per person.

Tonino Restaurant

Tonino Restaurant

It is located in the Monte La Torre neighborhood number 8 and close to the center of Santander. It is a restaurant focused on seafood cuisine and you can also see it in its design and blue colors inside. Upon entering we find a bar and a room where photographs of popular diners such as Zapatero, Buenafuente and Revilla appear who are apparently a regular customer of the place. The restaurant is focused on fresh fish and seafood from the Cantabrian.

Inside there is a spacious room where we tried a tasting menu of different dishes. Among them, some rabas - it would become what in many places in Spain we call Roman squid but strips - octopus, feira, hake and other dishes. The portions to share were abundant and the quality excellent.

The good service of the waiters gave us the feeling of having all the time in the world to taste the food without the sensation of running to make way for the next turn of diners.

Average price: about 50 euros per person.
