I had a smile on my face right through the whole dining experience...think that says it all!

Staff were wonderful - flirtatious and charming. The atmosphere was romantic, minimal and relaxed and the food was delicious. We enjoyed every mouthful. Good wine list with a decent selection.

The restaurant was busy so I would recommend booking in advance.

Definately worth a visit - great experience

We took friends as we had been before on previous visits to Sitges and it did not let us down. Service was excellent, food was delicious and the wine perfect. All in all a most memorable evening.

I was well looked after here by their great staff. One of the more serious restaurants in Sitges.
An amuse bouche of salmorejo set the scene which I decided to follow on with scallops which came with a lime, spring onion and wasabi dressing, and a shaved fennel salad with lamb's lettuce. The wasabi-lime kick was a perfect element of interest
My main course of Presa Iberico (apparently the muscle between the top of the shoulder and the beginning of the loin) wrapped in sage and pancetta was absolutely sublime and came accomopanied by roasted leeks and, unusually, a sauce vierge. But it worked. It was a fantastic dish. Of course, this pork dish was cooked slightly pink or medium. This is the norm for acorn fed Iberican pigs which have a lifestyle more like that of a wild boar than an intensively farmed pig.
All this did not come cheap - both the Presa Iberico and the Scallop starter were just over 21 Euros each.

Still Sitges best. Expensive but worth it... Best to ask for an outside table, one of the 2 circular ones if you can. Atmospheric+++ in beautiful the beautiful surroundings of a courtyard garden. Superlative food, well cooked and presented, all timed to perfection. Who could want for more. I had steak and was pleased with a melt-in-the mouth and cooked to perfection triumph, my partner had pork and we yum yum yummed our way through it. It was diabetes out the window time and we got stuck into a crumble as well!!... 3 hours of ecstasy.

Had another excellent meal at the Alfresco. Romantic setting in an open courtyard (some tables are inside, but try for the open air tables in summer), attentive service, expensive but worth it. Inventive menu with some interesting dishes (try the duck with tempura vegetables). Good wine list. Will return again on our next visit to Sitges.
