We went to Sitges which was recommended by friends and could not believe how expensive it is.

We had previously been in Barcelona and a similar tapas bar, Maitea Taberna, where the tapas were 1.50euro however included a drink, this one is 1.50 for the tapas and 1.50 a drink so double the price.

Tapas were nice, though not worth the excessive price.

Guess that is Sitges for you.

Call into the Galeon Hotel where you have a buffet dinner for 9.50euro and 5euro bottle of wines for a variety of seafood, tapas, hot food and salads which is much better value.

Like others have said, we stumbled across this little bar quite by accident, wandering the back streets of Sitges! We liked it so much, we * stumbled * back there most of the 5 nights of our visit!! ;)
Lots of variety, freshly cooked, many different things I'd never tried/seen before.....and so reasonably priced! For me, the white wine was EXTREMELY drinkable......only the house special, nothing fancy, but VERY easy on the palatte!!
A must to enjoy if you visit Sitges, it's full of locals.....always a good sign!!

We loved this place. Best pintxos in Sitges and a great way to start the night. 1.40 Euro per cocktail stick and a vast array to choose from and a popular little spot, so they don't sit out for hours, unlike other places we tried.

A good mix of locals and tourists. The service is a little grumpy if you don't make the effort to speak a little Spanish, but fair enough! We tried, badly, but managed to raise a smile. :)

Enjoy!

The pintxos are amazing, fresh little bites, you pay per stick (about 1£ per pintxo), the meat is also unbelievable and so its the wine. Affordable and super tasty dinner in an informal setting. Try it!
