Cafe Royalty does a really nice reasonably priced menu del dia. The platos combinados are really good too. Reasonably priced, nicely presented food with friendly helpful staff. They even prepared a take away for us to take onto the ferry home!

Royalty is easily accessible along one of the main thoroughfares next to a park, with views of the sea. Had a snack and coffee, it was fine, the prices didn't seem to bad either

Arrived in Santander on way home via ferry. Hotel near bus station so Royalty on doorstep. Good mix of dishes, menu del dia particularly good, not cheapest but value for money until you get to arroz y leche CAKE. Stupendous! Had it twice.

Dropped in for a few beers and a snack after work. Finished off with a Coffee and a lovely slab of Chocolate cake. Very popular with people waiting for the ferry at the terminal across the road on certain days. The place is very clean....More

Good to sit outside and people watch. Very convenient for the ferry terminal. Nice tapas but watch the price of the wine. Ask for a wine list to avoid getting caught as I did!

Service slow. Pricey drinks and food. Walk a little further and there should be better fare on offer. Didn't stay for long.
