Find out what Spanish restaurants to try in Comillas. Comillas is a small township and municipality in the northern reaches of Spain, in the autonomous community of Cantabria. The Marquisate of Comillas, a fiefdom of Spanish nobility, holds ceremonial office in the seat of power at a small castle which overlooks the town.

La Lonja de Comillas

In the traditional fishing port of Comillas - Cantabria is located our charming restaurant with stunning views over the Bay of Biscay, where we make a careful personal attention as we understand love of food. We offer the best fish and seafood arrived dai

We were really looking forward to trying this restaurant but after 30 minutes of being ignored by the waiting staff we decided to leave. The Spanish get preferential service so if you are an English family be prepared to wait or eat elsewhere where you will be treated with some level of basic respect.

La Terrazuca

Reviewed By Bosbeek

After beach life, many people gather in the lovely square of the city for wining and dining. The elevated terrace of terrazuca offers stunning views on the events in the square. Terrazuca also offers a more modern dining amidst high tourist oriented traditional restaurants. The ambiance and decor of the restaurant reflects that 'young' atmosphere just as well as the surprising and delicious tapas served.

Restaurante Parrilla La Fragua

Restaurant with Argentina's barbecue. Seafood,fish. barbecued meat.

Reviewed By AmandaM317

We arrived and were greeted warmly in both Spanish and English. Menus were available in English if required. We ordered the ternera a la brasa, which is steak cooked on a charcoal heated cast iron hot plate at your table. There were just the two of us so the waitress kindly offered to just bring a half portion (a full portion is a kilo of steak!). It was served with home cooked chips and a portion of padron peppers. You seared the steak yourself so you could choose how well-done you wanted it. Perfect! There was even a free starter of pudding de la Casa, which is a fish mousse served with little toasts. The wine was great (we had their cheapest Ribera del Duero) and the service was friendly. Highly recommended.

So I didn't get to try the Cocido Montagnes, alas, but had the red bean stew instead, with a very nice beer, and all followed up with a queso flan,The food was great, the service was good - not five star, but friendly, warm, welcoming - and the prices were beyond fair (106 euros to feed seven people to a state of happy contentedness).The view is also beautiful.

El Pirata

Reviewed By MurrayR946

This restaurant (bar downstairs) doesn't open until 8 pm but possibly does do lunches. The bar had a really nice feel with tapas serves complimentary which was very nice. The guests were mainly locals and the staff really friendly making our evening a memorable one. The upstairs restaurant was very nice, my friends who ordered the Beef found it tough however. The fish options were limited but on the whole good. Complimentary digestives were served rounding off a good experience.

Reviewed By E5194JYjamesw

Premium service, great quality product in an uncomparable atmosphere. Must visit if you are in comillas. Among my favourite are: Rabas de calamar, entrecote de vaca Tudanca (local cow with extremely tasty meat), ensaladilla rusa and cheesecake with caramel for desert. Will come back to try pastrami sandwich and the burger. If you go for dinner, the place is ideal for a drink after dinner. Location, service, product and price make Gilda a great choice when in Comillas.

El Remedio

Reviewed By mabeytam

This restaurant is a little out of the way but the location and ambiance is amazing and worth the visit despite the really bad service. We were a group of 4 adults and 4 kids and luckily we had some snacks before arriving because after being seated it took them nearly 30minutes just to give us the menus. The slow start was clearly an indication of the slow service that we were about to receive. Although the food was not bad, by the time it arrived at our table it was completely cold. Service was so slow that in the end we let the kids get up to play and then 30min later we called them back for their main courses. Such a disappointment. I got the feeling that they are not used to having more than 2 tables to serve.

This was a nice and tasty dinner. The service was welcoming. We arrived too early not being used to the Spanish dinner time but still got seated and served with refreshing white wine.A little bit on the pricey side for what the restaurant offers; the cooking nothing special, but the meat was of good quality. We could have skipped the desserts. One entry, two main dishes, 4 glasses of wine, a bottle of water and two desserts: Almost 50 EUR.

Reviewed By dmsuk_12

Wonderful service from the owner(?) who explained all the dishes in English, even offering to serve half portions so that we could try more dishes. The Zamburinas (Scallops) were the highlight. We shared a portion of Hake for main course, it was plenty for two and was served with chips & salad and was excellent. I'd recommend ordering one of the more expensive wines as the cheaper Albarino wasn't to our taste, but the lady couldn't have been more helpful in replacing it with different bottle. A must-go in lovely Comillas.

Restaurante La Aldea Comillas

Reviewed By 8cu

My sweetheart and I were spending 4 days in Cantabria, along with my mother-in-law (who is a very cool and dedicated traveler). We had been up in Picos de Europa enjoying the cool of the mountains and some great hiking.On our last day, we headed down the mountain, in part to be closer to the airport for our morning departure and (importantly) to see El Capricho de Gaudí, the beautiful mansion.So, a day of beauty and harmony required a lunch to match. La Aldea Comillas really satisfied that need and left us quite content and smiling (and full!).The restaurant is on a side street packed with other restaurants. When you travel, and see a whole line of restaurants in a row, it's hard to tell the tourist traps from the real thing. Fortunately, we did our research and found this place.There is outside seating and a nice larger room upstairs. As they don't take reservations, if you want an outside seat, you'll probably have to arrive early. We didn't arrive until 3pm, so ended up inside (which was nice, so no complaints).My sweetheart and I really wanted fish. My mother-in-law wanted beef and got a nice steak from local meat.
