Description: In 2003, we embarked with great enthusiasm in a gastronomic adventure. Our desire was to develop and consolidate Santander Spanish cuisine at its most traditional and popular way: "The pincho" . Reflecting the high quality of our skewers, Casa Lita has received numerous awards and various press mentions and appearances on television, both national and international. High quality "pinchos" prepared at the moment. Our cook, Joseba Guijarro , who in his long career has won a prestigious Michelin star , is in charge daily to buy on the market the freshest and best quality products to make "pinchos" you can taste daily in Casa Lita . All our "pinchos" come to the bar freshly made, as they are made ​​to order , so that our customers can enjoy this form of the best Spanish gastronomy through authentic cuisine of "pincho".

“Great Spanish experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Our party of three adults ate lunch here. Fabulous food, amazing vibe and friendly, helpful staff. A great experience enjoyed by all. Thoroughly recommend. Don't go if you want a quiet, boring restaurant or a la carte service, this is a traditional experience and lots of fun and most importantly good food, wine and service!

“Best pinchos in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

I've been coming to Santander on a yearly basis since the last 13 years, Casa Lita features one of the best, if not the best pinchos in town, excellent taste and quality. You have to be patient though, and make your way through to get to the waiters attending at the "barra", during weekends is quite crowded. Best to be there at lunch time! You will not regret it!

“Lovely fresh pintxos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

We sat down on the terrace outside overlooking Puertochico. Although they only speak Spanish, they are very helpful to make a choice from the many mouthwatering pintxos (tapas). All pintxos (except the sweet dessert kinds) are 3 euro's! Try 3/4 different kinds to have a good lunch! Order a carafe of sangria too!

“For locals only. Don't waste your time here.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

As a non local, you will be overlooked and probably you don't get any service. Zero points from me.
Go somewhere else instead!!!

“Good food, nice location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Certainly one of the best Tapas restaurants in Santander. Freshly made tapas arrives all the time with a good choice of wine. They will talk to you in English and even happy to make you a cup of tea! Friendly staff and spotlessly clean. Just be aware that Casa Lita is closed on Mondays!
