“Lovely setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Last here for dinner with my family two years ago and we think that the food had improved since then(it was pretty good last time). The choice is board, never had problem understanding the menu and the service is efficient without being overbearing or slack. This place is great for a big family dinner.

Word of warning though, beware the cocktails! They are very strong but delicious.

“Romantic but friendly poolside setting for an al fresco meal of excellent dishes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Reopened for the 2012 season, this friendly but tranquil oasis is the place for a relaxing al fresco meal around the pool. Excellent choice of dishes, two different fixed price menus, and beautifully prepared and presented food with good wines- and cocteles in the outdoor bar to begin with if you wish.

“Lovely setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We enjoyed the setting of this restaurant and the service was good and overall it was good value for money. Their are 2 fixed price menus and we ate from the cheaper 24 euro menu which was 3 courses including wine and coffee. Overall the food was ok but I felt they were trying a bit too hard and felt the food was a little pretentious and not always a good balance of flavours. My aubergine starter was only luke warm and I didn't feel that the mixture of vegetables, chicken, goats cheese and curry sauce really worked. Mypartner had musells which were stone cold and served with a bowl of olive oil and balsamic vinegar which seemed rather a strange accompaniment. The mains were ok although I felt the sauce with my Iberian pork wad a little oily and tasteless, nothing really to accompany it apart from a tiny garnish of peppers and sauce. Desserts ok. Overall it is good value in a nice setting but I feel a more basic menu of simple well cooked food would be much nicer.

“Beautiful!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

We cannot praise this restaurant enough. The food, ambiance, service, price, all first class!!! We eat here at least twice a week on our holiday each year.
It is a place we always look forward to, and we are never disappointed.

“Good food, great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

One of Sitges finest places to have dinner is in the garden of this small Hotel. Food is good and the prices are, I must say, very cheap. Service can be better but, an overall very nice restaurant.
