Always a visit for every trip to Sitges and Alfresco still has it. Service, venue, menu choice, food. The owner goes out of his way to speak, ask; service always attentive but not pushy. Wine recommendations are always perfect. Just a lovely discrete, calm, serene dining experience. One of my... read more

A peaceful, quiet oasis in Sitges. Cool decor, comfy mediterranean style. The owners wife was our waitress and was SUPERB. her wine recommendations suited perfectly the meal and were kind of an adventure. LET THEM DECIDE THE WINE.

When are people going to wake up to the fact this restaurant is overpriced and poor value? No local from Sitges would ever eat here, it's primarily aimed at the pink pound. Compared to what is on offer elsewhere in Sitges? I have been to Al Fresco a few times over the years. Yes the restaurant has a beautiful ambiance... More

You have to book. But it is so worth it. The food, the staff, the setting - everything is superb. You will not be disappointed.

We walked in just before 9 as a group of 7 without a reservation and took the last available table. It was the Monday night of festival, so like most places heavily booked up. It was a bit of a reunion so we were not in a hurry and they gave us space to take our time (we left after... More

This is a wonderful restaurant with great food , ambience , excellent service and the daily menu specials are certainly worth trying. I tried the feta and spinach salad followed by hake which was delightful and cooked to perfection. I didn't try any desserts so cannot comment. The wine selection was good and not over priced. I would highly recommend... More

The restaurant was crowded - no surprise on an August Saturday night. Starter was a nondescript cold tomato soup, not a proper gazpacho. The main course (shoulder of lamb) was so small that it could have been eaten in 3 mouthfulls. I don't mind very small portions if they have special, inventive or intense flavoring or sauces, but this one... More

Amazing! You have to try this place! We booked for 5 people at Alfresco last night and our experience was nothing short of excellent. The staff were attentive, the food is DIVINE, the wine exceptional, the ambiance perfect. We wiled away a wonderful evening under a canopy of palms and the stars. Perfect night! Thank you to Xavier and his... More

We've been going to AlFresco for many years, it just gets better and better. This latest holiday we have been 3 nights out of 6, and would have gone more had our desire for variety got the better of us. Great atmosphere and a perfect setting, outside but inside. Open air dining at its finest (hence the name) and great... More
