Santander is a lovely town in Northern Spain and La Cania is a lovely restaurant. We were so pleased with our first dinner that we returned the following night.

La Cania has a busy outside terrace and a noisy tapas section as you walk inside. Venture beyond that and you’ll find a great restaurant with amazing fresh fish.


Our waiter was pretty friendly and after we’d made a few attempts at broken Spanish warmed to us and spoke in English.

The wine by the glass and bread selection were good.

The fresh prawns and vegetables we had to start were just amazing.


On our previous visit, we’d seen a family order a large fish that was filleted table side. We ordered that – not really knowing how much it cost.

There were three of us and we each had a huge piece of delicious fish.

It was well worth the 72 Euro cost that appeared on our bill.

If I lived near La Cania, I’d be there every week.
