Well worth a visit

This place is a gem. It is down a side street and we found it very quiet. Food was superb. Sangria was very refreshing after a long day on the beach. Traditional food was on offer and I loved it. I could not fault it.

It's a very nice restaurant in one of the side streets. The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly and nice. I had dinner there twice in a short stay and all the food is amazing but the steak is absolutely excellent. Also try the shared set of starters.

This was recommended by our friends hoteliers. From the minute we arrived we had met and got to know a little of the family who run this place. Great menu and everyone's choices were looked upon with envy by the others at the table. Will definetly return on our next visit.

We wanted to eat and it was quite late so decided to take a chance here. (Particularly as it had a 4.5 trip advisor poster on the wall). We ordered the goats cheese salad and some chips and calamari on the side. We asked for it all to come at the same time. Needless to say it did not and... More

We got the €24 set menu, I had smoked salmon salad starter and my partner had homemade canelloni. Both were tasty enough but there was very little salmon and a lot of lettuce for the smoked salmon salad. The mains were just very average, roast lamb which came with 2 wedges of boiled potato. Zero for presentation. The other main... More

Visited this restaurant with my family, very spontaneous, because we passed by a Sunday. We all selected from one of the menus del dia, priced at €24. The dishes were lukewarm and bland. Friendly staff, charming and nice atmosphere. Not a restaurant I would recommend, given the variety and quality of restaurants available in Sitges.

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
