I love this restaurant and have been a number of times but I felt I just had to write a review after the amazing hospitality we received for my partners 40th birthday. Andy & Jonny were attentive from my first email enquiry at a time...when it is not easy to plan a celebration. We had a group booking albeit under the current restrictions we had to be seated on separate tables but nothing was too much trouble when it came to accommodating those with dietary requirements and offering a range of menu and drink options. The food was fabulous and full of flavor as always. I would highly recommend the sea bass ceviche, Japanese pork and solomillo in South American inspired marinade. And from previous visits the cocktails are some of the best in town. The owners and their staff truly care about your experience and the restaurant has a great ambiance whether you go in a couple or with friends you wont regret it.More

Me and my partner have been eating at Mama's every time we go to Sitges and it is definitely one of our top 3 restaurants there. They are so consistent and the quality of the dishes, presentation, flavours is out of this world. When you...think of what you pay for such quality, it makes this restaurant fantastic value. The staff is great too...always welcoming and the restaurant has a very cosy warm feel. Oh and if you are lucky to make it when Gigi is there (one one of the owner's alter ego).....you are in for a treat!More

Our second visit to Mama's Picanteria, this is now an essential stop on every visit to Sitges. The quality of food is superb - can't recommend the Vietnamese Lemongrass chicken enough

Two of us dined at MAMA'S Picanteria. The restaurant has a very nice relaxed atmosphere. We were provided with a couple of complimentary drinks. We made all of our orders at once, which included appetizers and a main dish meal. We ordered as an appetizer...some Fried Yuccas, the waiter delivered this dish, and upon placing the dish on the table, a couple of the sliced yuccas fell off the serving plate and landed on the table, the waiter saw this, since he was in control of the serving dish, but he ignored it, and simply left the plate on the table, along with the spilled fried yucca pieces, and walked away. The fried yuccas were just ok. We ordered a sampler appetizer of meatballs, and other Lebanese items which were quite tasty. As a main dish we ordered a pork dish on a bed of rice. We finished our appetizers and had to wait about 40 minutes before being served our main meal, despite our seeing that other customers whom had arrived after we had, were receiving various food dishes of their own. I commented to the waiter that while the pork dish was quite good, he should mention to the chef to maybe not pour so much soy sauce in the dish in the future for other guests, the waiter immediately became defensive - we were just trying to be helpful in commenting on our dining experience, there was no reason to get defensive. We were asked if we wanted desert or coffee, but we declined because we didn't know if that would be a delayed delivery order as wellMore

I couldn’t recommend this restaurant anymore as I’m about to. The service was impeccable. From quick sitting down to describing what each dish is individually. The waiters and owner of Mama’s were professional, efficient and quick to please. The food was Delicious. I ordered the...sharing platter with a friend to begin, as I said earlier the lady described what each food was. Then for my main I had the Argentinian beef steak. The marinade they have was rich and flavour-sum. Not too many chunky chips which gives you the the chance to eat more of the beef. 100% recommend to eat here.More
