Again a wonderful meal !! The first courses were perfect, the ceviche as good as ever, the fish balls excellent, the beef melting in the mouth (for the non-vegetarian one) as well as the rest of the meal… the fish was also very good !...And the dessert, which was an Apple strudel, was a very good end of the meal… accompanied with pink cava and Bailey’s for dessert !!! A must if you are in Sitges !!!More

What do you get when British and Armenian partners start a Lebanese restaurant in Spain? The answer: an amazing result. The Lebanese kitchen already is a mix of influences from all around the region. When fused with the experience of its owners, the outcome is,...as Master Chef Australia judges would call it, “epic”.More

Dined here twice with two other couples (the first experience was so good we went back a couple of nights later!). The food was all freshly prepared and delicious and obviously made with great care & attention to flavor & presentation. The staff were all...very welcoming and attentive. Will return to eat here every time we are in Sitges since it is one of our absolute favorite dining experiences.More

We regularly go to this amazing restaurant as the food is superb and the atmosphere always great. Nice cocktails too. Yesterday we came on a special night as it was dinner and a drag show with Gigi. A lot of fun as she sings live...(no miming there) and can belt out a number… as well as jokes. Really fantastic experienceMore

Booked here based on TA reviews. The food was fantastic ! Mixed starter to share gives a taste of everything and really good portion size. We had the chicken and winter hake main courses. Delicious. Managed to share a cheesecake dessert as quite full by...that time. Was a lovely night in a lovely setting so definitely worth a visit if you want something a bit different.More

Despite of the fact we are in Spain we got interested in this near-east cuisine mixed with some Spain dishes. The mezzo-platter for 2-3 persons (I would rather say 2) was a nice start. Various dishes like meat balls, humus, salad etc. were very nice...to eat. The main courses: the beef was great! The sauce so intensive, a really nice dish! The fish and chips Main was slightly overrated, or should I say too much modern interpretation? The two large pieces of fish could have been smaller to become more intensive in taste. The fried banana in the middle was a kind of Chinese dessert irritation, but in general it was all nicely done. For the dessert we had chosen Maracuja cheese cake which was a nice choice. Conclusion: a nice restaurant with helpful and attentive staff, flexible with our time moves due to unforeseen issues. We really recommend this place for sure!More

We had an amazing night here. Group of 17, we went on Thursday so we could enjoy the drag show. We had the set menu given the size of the group. Food was amazing and so much of it!! It never stopped coming - we...pretty much had the whole menu. The steak was just one highlight. They even catered for a coeliac member outstandingly. Service is great too. The drag show was so much fun and we all ended up dancing. All the staff are wonderful and couldn’t recommend it enoughMore

What a fantastic restaurant. Highly recommend. The food is phenomenal, prepared with care and beautifully presented. We went here for a 50th birthday dinner and sat outside although the inside of the restaurant is very nice also. The food is a bit of a fusion...between Lebanese and Latin. We had chickpea croquettes and Lebanese meatballs as a starter, both delicious. Do not miss the Yuca fries! For main we had winter hake and the Djaj Bil-Bahar. Both good but the chicken dish was exceptional. The dessert menu has about 4-5 items on it, and we tried a passionfruit cheesecake which was really different, and quite nice. It was so good, we immediately booked in for the following night. All of the staff are warm and friendly and all speak excellent English. We felt so welcome there. I wouldn't hesitate to go again next time I am in Sitges. Make sure you book a few days ahead. It is a popular place and tables get booked quickly.More

We were very excited to try Mama's during our visit to Sitges as their menu and website looked exciting & different. The location is perfect, down a quiet side street off a main street and felt secluded yet close to everything going on, we were...outside on the terrace but would have been equally happy inside in the eclectic interior that was also air-conditioned. The staff were simply lovely, very friendly, happy to answer any questions and very attentive. Let's start with the starters! We shared the Vegetable & Chickpea Croquettes which came with a marmalade sauce and the Yucas fritas. The croquettes, in our opinion were the star fo the show, sooooo delicious and the sauce complemented them perfectly, the Yuca fries were tasty and went well with the cashew nut sauce but possible could have benefitted from a little extra in the flavour department. Both starters were enormous. For our mains we had the take on traditional fish and chips and also the marinated beef fillet. The fish and chips were cooked well, tasted good and the pea puree was a great compliment to the dish, the banana fritter however seemed a step too far, it was enormous and was not needed on the plate. The beef fillet was cooked to perfection, however, the dish was swimming in soya sauce which completely took over it's flavour and I wasn't able to finish it due to the over saltiness of it all, I was expecting South American inspired flavours as promised on the menu but they weren't there. We did feed back our issues re the banana and the soya sauce to our lovely waiter and hopefully they were fed back to the kitchen. We finished our meal with margaritas which were perfect. Definitely would go back for the croquettes but would try different main courses next time, which is as it should be!More
