“My restaurant of choice when in town”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

A great restaurant, offering a good choice of dishes. The setting alone is what keeps me going back. On my last 2 week vacation I ate here at least 7 times. The set menu including wine is great value for the quality of food that you get. My only criticism is that some of the mains do come as described....so it may be an idea to order additional sides, although they do not have these listed on the menu....my burger was just that!!! The lady who manages/owns the restaurant runs a tight ship hence the staff being so attentive.....highly recommend

“A Touch of Old Sitges”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Designed by the architect Gaiet Buigas i Monrov the restaurant offers people an opportunity to sit outside in the bar area and have a few cocktails before sitting down near the pool for an excellent meal. You can choose from two set menus, one which offers starter, main course, dessert and a coffee for €25 or slightly more sophisticated food for €35. On the menu they are able to offer additional sangria for only an extra €4. All in all it was a delightful light menu before going out in Sitges for the evening. A very underrated establishment.

“nice location”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

l go some times there, it's a very nice place with the trees, the chilling part at the entrance, the swimming pool etc.
the food is ok, it was better in the past years
the son and the waiters are doing a good job, but the mother is very arrogant, she not even knows what kind of side dishes will be served, not very cooperative and client friendly, l know family business which are more guest friendly

“Bit of a dip!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

I have eaten here with various groups of friends over the years. Its tables surround a pool; the setting is really lovely. We were presented with a fixed price menu, the food was good, sadly the wine was corked. The staff replaced the wine - the replacement was also corked. We were informed that this was the wine that came as part of the 'menu'. We had to buy wine separately from the menu - all the wines were served at 'room' temperature, unlike the Sitgean custom of serving reds chilled ie at N. European temperatures. I will try again but suggest that they taste the wines before buying and store them properly.

“delightful”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Delightful garden setting around a pool. Two prix fixe menus, food somewhat limited but reasonable both in value and service. Laid back place for laid back people.
