“Great food for all the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

We - 2 grandparents, 2 parents (incl a vegetarian), 2 small boys - went here for our first meal of the holiday and enjoyed it so much that we booked again for our last night. Really genuine welcome from the proprietress who seems to be fluent in most major languages. Very accommodating of the children. We ordered a whole range of hot and cold tapas and enjoyed them all. There is something here for everyone. Would recommend highly.

“Small but very good tapas restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Went here with a friend and chose the restaurant just because of its look. Small, clean and full of people. We were lucky that there was a free table so it's definitively recommended to make a reservation.

The waitress was very friendly and spoke very good English.

We started with bread and tomatoes and a platter of cheese. Simple but very fresh (especially the bread which can sometimes be a turn off it's not fresh) and a very good taste.

Then we had the mussels and artichoke which were also very nice.

We were almost full by then, so thought to end with something small. We chose the veal stew. When it arrived it turned out to be more than we expected. It was heaven! So although we were full we finished that too.

All in all a very good restaurant with very fresh and tasty tapas.

“Fantastic tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Visited la picara twice during a weeks holiday with my girlfriend in sitges. First visited based on trip advisor reviews and I am glad I did. Absolutely fantastic tapas and great service. The owner even suggested we remove an item from our order and was spot on! The food comes out as it is prepared and encourages drinking and enjoying the meal rather than the rush job of many restaurants. We had 5 items of food and 2 drinks each for €45! A lot cheaper than other restaurants in sitges. Every item I had was superb and I will be back with my father in May for sure!

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

My son said it was his best meal in Sitges! The food was excellent, both traditional and modern tapas! The queue outside the door when we left says it all!
