Café Centro Botín

Café Centro Botín is the culinary space at the Botín Centre. It is located in a unique enclave with views over the Pereda Gardens and the sea, and it offers a fresh, modern and quality experience to breathe, sample and be inspired in an incomparable environment.

Carlos Crespo and chef, Álex Ortiz, have extensive experience in the sector and have many successful projects under their belts. They are both responsible for Café Centro Botín.

Crespo is the founder of restaurants like El Riojano (Santander), La Primera, La Bien Aparecida or La Maruca (Madrid). Pan de Cuco, in Suesa (Ribamontán al Mar), is Álex Ortiz’s first solo project. After running the kitchen of Bodega del Riojano for several years, the chef has joined forces with Carlos Crespo to set up their own business.

The keys to Enjoy El Muelle


Charge your batteries at the start of the day with our rustic bread, cakes and pastries, savoury options, and fresh fruit juices with sea views.


A good time to savour our selection of local tapas accompanied by a glass of vermouth, prepared with a very special touch.


Salads, soups and stews are the star dishes in a proposal filled with the flavours of Cantabria and aromas from around the world.


The sweet temptation, a whim, or the perfect excuse to get close to art, coffee, tea, the sea.


Café Centro Botín offers a dining menu to enjoy and share our selection of traditional tapas with a creative twist, available until late.


Look out for the live music programme at Café Centro Botín in Centro Botín! A treat for all five senses.
