Our group were told we could get the local dish of Fidua which is a Catalonian version of Spanish paella. Instead of using rice they use thin, short, almost spaghetti-like pasta. It was a really delicious twist of the classic and the atmosphere we ate it in was a lively, comfortable environment out on the terrace. Unfortunately, one of the starters didn't arrive for one of our group and then a main dish didn't turn up for another person. Despite this, we all came back twice more! It's a great rendezvous spot if you're meeting people for a drink and a quick bite to eat.

We visited this restaurant which is part of the hotel twice during our stay in Sitges recently.
The staff are always keen to get you into the restaurant which has great views of the promenade.
The food that we ordered on both visits was fresh,tasty and very well presented I find the sea food and steak choice really good value at this outlet. My companion who is not really a fish eater was very impressed with the sword fish steak and really enjoyed it.
The only down side to this restaurant is the more full it gets the less service you receive as if the staff cannot cope with a full restaurant. My advice is to arrive around 20.00 pm as then you have a good chance of receiving good service and enjoyable food.

Overall I was happy with our meal at La Santa Maria. The location is lovely, right on the seafront.
Its very affordable & the portion sizes are quite large. The service was good, nice and fast once they got going!! Something that really bothered me though was that the waiter brought out a basket of bread rolls that we didn't ask for. We assumed they were complementary as he just put them on our table without a word (we had all actually ordered starters already) We didn't even touch those bread rolls and noticed when we got the bill that we had been charged for them!!! Very cheeky if you ask me!!! Also my mum got paella which she was very happy with, but again on closer inspection of the bill we noticed we were charged twice for it! I enjoyed the meal though but what I would say is to check your bill carefully & tell them to take away the bread rolls of you don't want them as you will be charged!!!

Ended up here purely because it was open at 7pm unlike many places in town and the children were hungry. The food was the worst we had in the nine days we spent in Sitges. Really poorly cooked lamb shoulder, terrible pasta and overcooked fish. Wine was poured quickly complete with sediment. Only redemption came in the form of a pretty decent crema catalan a.
