Parador de Santillana Gil Blas

The culinary offerings at our restaurant, El Jardín de Gil Blas, are based on traditional Cantabrian cuisine. We especially recommend our cocido montañés (bean and pork stew). Or enjoy grilled Tudanca beef sirloin with vegetable ratatouille and potato pie, turbot steak or an excellent Cantabrian cheese plate. And for a sweet finish, sample our homemade desserts, including tarta Santa Juliana (cheesecake with a cookie base topped with peach preserves), grandmother’s special dessert (custard with ice cream, meringue and a touch of liqueur), and torrija pasiega (French toast) with ice cream or sorbet.

In addition to a children’s menu, we also offer special vegetarian and gluten-free dishes, and desserts for diabetics. We invite you to dine in our elegant restaurant with a view of the colorful plants and flowers on the Parador’s terrace. In summer, we open up the room to offer pleasant moonlit dinners. With the arrival of autumn, you can sample wonderful mushroom dishes during our culinary events.
