From the moment you enter this place it feels very different to any other restaurant in Sitges. The atmosphere is unique with a traditional outdoor setting feel. The hosts are welcoming and create a dining experience with exquisite food - the starter was the best Octopus I have ever tasted. We left this restaurant till last on our trip to and it definitely left a lasting impression! It is pricey but would recommend it highly and will be going back on my next trip!

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend who had eaten here last year. It's probably one of the best restaurant recommendations I've had in years, so much so we went back again on our last night.

The menu was very varied with a good mix of meat, seafood and vegetarian options. The waiters were very knowledgeable about their food and made recommandations not on the top grossing product but on gentle questioning of what sort of food you like. The wine list was equally impressive.

Some reviewers have commented on the prices - yes it's not the cheapest restaurant in Sitges, but the quality of the food is unrivalled. We dined one evening with a friend who is a chef and even he was swept off his feet by the quality (and he's a hard one to please when it comes to food!)

I also like the ambience of this restaurant - it's set partly in a walled garden which gives it a very intimate feel but without feeling you're sitting on top of the next table.

Overall, this is one of the best meals I've had while on a holiday. As the head waiter said to me, his team's goal is to create a good lasting experience for their guests - and I'm pleased to say that on both occasions they excelled.

The first time I visited Sitges 10 years ago I was told that this was the best restaurant, and to me it still is. Wonderful service beautiful setting and perfect food what more could you want.

I take guests to Alfresco when I want a risk free great meal. I always try to vary my menu choice and this visit's selections proved as delicious as every other visit.
