This tapas bar, famous for its “vermut” or” vermouth”, has been around for many decades. Their motto used to be “Del futbol el Racing Club, y de Solorzano el Vermut” (When it comes to soccer, the Racing Club; and when it comes to vermouth, Solorzano’s). Now Solorzano has taken it one step further, and in additional to the classic vermouth... More

We are lucky to have local friends who brought us to this special place. It's great for a casual relaxed eating experience with serious food quality. Stop by for a drink with pincho or sit and enjoy a few more raciones...nothing glamorous but some seriously good food!

I went with a group of friends for aperitivo/happy hour and as usual, we loved it! They have a fantastic wine selection and the tapas dishes are great! We love their sea snails and rabas/calamari dish! The place is well decorate, really charming and cozy! Strongly reccomend! It gets really busy, so do not expect a quiet place!

We went here 2 night for drinks and tapas - ordered the cheese plate and goat cheese salad which were both absolutely fantastic and the service superb. We absolutely loved this place and would highly recommend it!

EL Solorzano is one of Santander's long time existing bars. I specially like it before lunch, to have "el aperitivo", when you can see many locals hanging around. Ask for rabas or mejillones to accompany your drink.

2nd stop on a Pintxo crawl, however it was light on pintxos and more a tapa/racion/meal place. However we were welcomed warmly, given some free tapas and had some lovely wine. There was great atmosphere inside with lots of groups sitting down to eat. I wish we'd had time to stop for longer on our whistle stop tour of Santander.
