Loved the food and the service was impeccable as usual - the choice of plates of food we were served was lovely and we also had three bottles of wine between the six of us and the value for money was incredible - have the Wagu hamburgers they are excellent!

The map is incorrect, El Pou is at { Lat: 41.236257, Lon: 1.809141 }. We got the wrong impression and ordered our own items, but they were delivered one after another in the true, relaxed sharing meal attitude. The food was delicious and it was easy to be adventurious. I went a bit too far ordering the steak mince tartar,... More

We had a fantastic last night meal at El Pou, but as this is a small place booking is advisable. The food was so good, it is tapa's but on a different level, the flavours were amazing and they have also mixed in a few asian inspired dishes which were very good. We had very good service and help with... More

The food here is excellent but as usual the service was marred by the extremely unfriendly waiter. Does he hate foreigners? Even if they speak Spanish? Why does HE get to decide what you have AND the order the dishes come in to the extent of delaying the next course because we hadn't finished every mouthful of what was on... More

This place is easy to miss, small, unassuming and without any real streetscape. But don't let this quiet exterior fool you, el Pou produces the most innovative and lip smacking tapas we have enjoyed in Spain. We ate here twice in two days and cannot wait to return. Everything we ordered had wonderful flavours and a freshness often lacking in... More

I can't believe this place isn't higher up the list in the rating for restaurants in Sitges, its a tough call to decide who is better between Nem Sitges and El Pou, both are exceptional really and have their own individual specialties, however I think El Pou may just slightly have the edge! We really pigged here.... ended up ordering... More

We came across this restaurant by accident as we had been intending to visit another, however i am extremely glad we had a great meal here. Good Spanish cuisine, great atmosphere, nice decor and excellent service and a very reasonable price as well. Clearly popular with the locals as well which is always a good sign.

The food we had was generally very good, but our experience at El Pou was spoilt by a waiter who was rude, inattentive and slow. He was apparently offended by the fact that we had sat down ourselves after having waited for a minute or two without there being any waiter on the restaurant floor. Normally we would agree that...

Had spotted this on Tripadvisor and were delighted to have done so. A real highlight of our 4 night trip, we went twice. A simple traditional Spanish setting, the delightful manager was very helpful in suggesting a few dishes when we asked him to - but everything was scrumptious and, visually, beautiful. The food is served to you at your... More
