This is a very popular restaurant that serves delicious tapas with Japanese influences. We especially loved the sardines, the hot potatoes, the mini-hamburgers, and the Wagyu beef. Refined and rich tastes. Only downside is that the place is totally understaffed. The waiter and the kitchen seemed to have a continuous argument which ruined the atmosphere.

We had a good variety of tapas at this restaurant including the chicken kebabs, wagyu burgers, meat croquettes and fried aubergine. They were all of a good standard and at reasonable prices. I think we spent around 40euros including a couple of glasses of wine. I would go again.

From the outside just another of the many restaurants in Sitges, from the inside a gastronomic delight, the waiter pleasant welcoming and workmanlike, assists with the menu. We chose four to start with and were so thrilled with perfection of the dishes that we went for two more. If my body allowed I would have stayed all night long. The... More

The food here blew me away! Having eaten in some of the highly rated tapas restaurants in Barcelona I have to say El Pou is more than a match for them. It's difficult to choose a favourite from all the dishes we tried, they were all excellent. The mini wagyu burgers, Japanese chicken skewers and patatas bravas were so tasty... More

There has been a change in the waiting staff of this very small and lovely restaurant but I am glad to say the food and ambience are as good as ever. Their sardines are fantastic.

Living in Sitges we have tried many restaurants and this is our regular 'go to' restaurant. Fabulous food, very fresh, hot, wonderful flavour combinations, great service and good wines - what more could you ask for? Always full, be sure to reserve.

food is fantastic with an unchanging menu and limited wine list but great value. Seating is limited so a reservation makes good sense.

So good we went twice in five days. This Catalan/Japanese fusion tapas restaurant does wonderfully delicious, inventive food. Dishes are from about €4.50 to €10 – you need 4/5 for 2 people. Wine is local and inexpensive. Highly recommended – reservations essential.
