The cuisine type is predominantly seafood, with a focus on fresh catches from the nearby coast. Upon entering, guests are transported to an underwater world with the restaurant's unique ambiance and interior design, resembling a cozy cave.

The oysters, percebes (goose barnacles), and zamburiñas (scallop-like mollusks) are also highly recommended. For meat lovers, the solomillo relleno (stuffed sirloin) is a standout dish. Cocktails, soft drinks, and wines are available, with Albariño being the top choice for seafood pairings.

The attentive and professional staff, particularly Loli and Antonio, provide exceptional service and make guests feel right at home. Overall, Restaurante La Gruta de Jose offers an unforgettable dining experience that combines exceptional food, ambiance, and service.

What a discovery!! They welcomed us with a house appetizer which was a delicious scorpionfish pie. As starters we ordered the half portion of rabas, a tomato salad, the scallops and some croquettes... Everything was exquisite, the fried foods were not greasy at all, the croquettes were ultra creamy and had good ham, the scallops were just right, as was the tomato. For the second, the great jewel, the lobster stew where we ate 3 very very well and it was great, the rice very well done, with just the right amount of salt and really very delicious. To finish, we ordered tres leches cake, nougat tiramisu, cheesecake and a vanilla ice cream, the tiramisu was crazy, the tres leches was delicious and you couldn't stop even if you were already bursting and the cheesecake was very creamy and really very good. The place is very very beautiful and the staff is very friendly, attentive and pleasant. We passed through Santander on our way back from a trip and we already want to spend a few days there just to return to this wonderful place.
