“Not for us”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We knew we should not have stayed. We arrived to an almost deserted restaurant and were shown to a table with a crinkled paper table cloth and red poor quality paper napkins.
We were a party of four to celebrate a special occasion. There was no a la carte menu just a set meal which was expensive compared with other restaurants and hotels in the vicinity. The food was mediocre, steak, asked for as medium came as a coarse grained piece of stewing stake that was well done.
The evening concluded with a floor show that was of questionable competence and so loud it was impossible to hold a conversation. It was so painful on the ears we left in a hurry, certain never to return.
If one is prepared to pay over the odds for average food eaten on a paper table cloth, just to enjoy cross dresser screaming into a microphone then this is the place for you.
With other establishments turning away customers this place had many empty tables. they speak for themselves.

“Worth one visit....nice garden !”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We had a set menu meal here and it was pleasant , but not outstanding. Starters were fine. For mains I had Kangaroo (instead of Ostrich...not available) which was excellent. However, my partner had the flank steak which was nearly inedible and he left most of the meat ( gristly and fatty). Desserts were fine.
Service was very pleasant and helpful.
Garden setting was lovely.

“Nice restaurant”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Another very nice restaurant in sitges were you can sit in the open air in the gardens while enjoying good food I had the kangaroo which was very nice as they had sold out of ostrich service is good and attentive. The restaurant is French owned and run so expect good things they have a 3 course menu without drinks for 25 euros per person but each course has about 5 choices so something for everyone give it a try it looks nothing from the front but you will enjoy it the only negative I could find is the tables are a little to close together so not as private as it could be but it's high season so you would expect that go and try it independent restaurants need your help in sitges !

“Warm and friendly staff”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

A lovely French inspired restaurant set in a large garden. Only serving a set menu / fixed price was a worry but I was totally impressed with what we were served and the staff were absolutely adorable! SO attentive and kind they made the whole experience what it was.
