We visited this restaurant with high hopes based in no small part on reviews, and were fairly disappointed. We both selected from one of the menus del dia priced at €24. Starters were spinach ravioli, and cannelloni. 4 pieces of ravioli with no discernable filling, smothered in a sweet mushroom sauce appeared as did cannelloni with a non specific meat... More

Despite the good advices here, I've found this restaurant really disappointing. The quality of the food was not bad, but the treatment was simply really bad. Only the grilled mussels were really good. The meat and the codfish were not well cooked and the presentation was really poor. The deserts presentation was rough and the combination of the "leche frita"... More

After going to El Celler Vell every time I go to Sitges, it is by far the best restaurant in town. The service is always excellent and the food super fresh an exquisite. I definitely recommend that place for a good meal experience, especially in a touristy town like Sitges, where is difficult to find good but not expensive dining.

I have been here several times, and it is always an amazing experience. It's like eating at someone's home, they make you feel comfortable and absolutely everything here is always fresh and cooked to perfection. Having gone to many restaurants in the area, many much more expensive, I keep going back to this one as it always leaves me and... More

Ate from the Menu del Dia. Food was simple but first class. Service was excellent. Located in a back street and mostly frequented by Spanish and not by tourists on the day my wife and I were there. Decor was slightly old fashioned but very pleasant. Would recommend this restaurant.

We visited El Celler Vell twice in July. We had a set menu lunch for 8 persons and birthday party dinner for 25 persons. Food was excellent and portions were big enough. Price level was something like 12 € for 3 courses lunch including a glass of wine. For the dinner we had also set menu which was really tasty... More

The set menu was ok, but what we wanted was already sold out. Therefore selected from a la carte. The food was excellent as well as the wine what teh waiter recommended to us. Price/quality OK - not a cheap one but in relation what You get is good.

Lovely place, in the pretty back streets, not basement as title suggests - it has a glass floor view to the cellar. Very friendly owner, lovely food.
