We were vacationing in Laredo last week and a place I enjoyed eating at was La Casona. It’s next to the promenade, the second street before you reach the harbor, only 2 minutes away from the historic town center.
During the week we were in Laredo we went a few times and they have a wide variety of tapas and full plates, which makes it great for snacking. On Sundays, they have shrimp for and tentacles (which are like fried squid legs, very tasty) for only 1 euro.
It's a fairly cheap restaurant. When we went for full dishes it worked out at 15 euros between the two of us and we ate until we burst. We asked for a “sartenada” ( a skilled of fried eggs, potatoes, and plenty of chorizo and black pudding for only 7 euros, I think), and we also ordered some delicious Cabrales (Spanish blue cheese) croquettes for I think about 2 euros and mussels with homemade tomato sauce which, if I remember correctly, were 4 euros or so.
We also went back to try the daily menu and in all fairness the value for the money is great. It cost 15 euros and had loads of starters and main courses to choose from. I ordered the peppers stuffed with cheese and tuna (I had never tried them and I was surprised, very flavorful), and my partner ordered steak, also very good also. And, of course, they make delicious paella with lots of garnishes, just how I like it!
The desserts are also homemade. In particular, try the coffee liqueur cake; it’s very smooth and easy to digest. That is if you have any room after eating, because their servings are massive.
We ate from the 22 € menu which included wine, beer, dessert and coffee...a bargain!! For starters, we had the seafood paella (average, I thought), a salad with cheese and a plate of ham. For the main course we had grilled sole, which was great!! The service was very friendly and the restaurant has a charming terrace.
Passing through Laredo, we had the opportunity to eat at Bodega Marshal, located on the C / Garelly House, 2. Is fairly close to the beach and, although the menu was not very varied (about 4 dishes for first course and another 4 for second), I liked it. It cost € 11 per person, plus a serving of fried calamari which was € 4. As you can see, very good prices for a tourist area. I had the seafood risotto, scallops with cheese sauce and a Tresviso coffee. It was all delicious and the portions were big. The desserts were typical: puddings, yogurt, some ice cream, but as I had been satisfied with the food, I ordered coffee. The service was very good, a little slow maybe, but good. We ate on the terrace and it cost about 40 cents more, which I think is very reasonably considering what they charge elsewhere for a terrace supplement.
It's the ideal place if you like authentic Italian food. Here you can find the secret of old-fashioned Italian style. There are also several rooms for celebrations which have an element of intimacy. The ambiance is nice, elegant and comfortable . It's in Laredo. The food here is fresh and pre-selected to ensure it is of the highest quality.
My friends ate in this restaurant last time they were in Laredo but this time we only went for a drink on the terrace. The restaurant offers cuisine from Cantabria. It has 2 dining rooms, but one of them is private and reserved for various events including baptisms, meals or dinners, and even bachelor parties. In summer, the terrace is very popular.

Croke is a place where you can go for pinchos, lunch, dinner and in the evening it opens as disco-pub and the environment changes radically. If you are eating you have to ask for the typical toast.
