“If you only try one restaurant in Sitges it has to be El Trull”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Let's just say this restaurant has the full package. To start with the menu is great and has some very unique dishes. The partisan ice cream on the salad was incomparable. The fish soup is also different from any I have tried in Sitges. Delicious. Then there is the staff and owner Angelo. They are all so nice and welcoming. Completely knowledgeable about the menu and specials like the tuna tartar. They also have an excellent steak tartar. If you like fine dining or just great food El Trull will not disappoint.

“An absolute must try!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We went for dinner and had the menu (22eur/person). The mussels were hands down the best I had ever tried, with a sauce that still has me wanting to move to that town. The pasta I had came with caviar and paprika, rapped in a white sauce. It was delicious. The menu included main courses and desert. (and bread). It also included a drink, I decided to go for a glass of red wine which, upon Angello's (the boss that night) recommendation, was served cold rather than room temperature. It was the perfect match for my main of lamb shank. When reviewing a restaurant, you focus on the food but the service was equally great. They guys working there know how to be friendly yet without being insistent, and we left absolutely charmed by the whole experience. A Must try!

“Best Meal in Years”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We loved it. Everything about this meal was fantastic, every course better than the one before it, the best meal we had in two weeks in Europe. The staff was amazing, very helpful (and the place was packed) and added to an incredible experience. Even worth taking the trip down from Barcelona.

“Tip top Trull”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We have just got back from a lovely five day holiday in Sitges and Trull was the best restaurant we went to. In fact it's one of the best restaurants we've ever been to.

We opted for the set menu on our first visit. It turned out to be exceptional value. A complimentary Hors d'oeuvre, three courses, a huge glass of red wine (chilled) each, and a shot of the owners home made limoncello. It came to £40.

We had the homemade pasta, lamb, mussels and hake. The pick of which was the lamb. The service was second to none with both our waiter and the owner happy to chat and talk with us without ever intruding on our evening.

We had several good food experiences in Sitges but this one was by far the best and we went back on our last night. The set menu wasn't available & the evening more expensive (it was a Friday evening after all) but we still left feeling we had got great value for money & once again enjoyed our hosts company. We will definitely return to Sitges one day and this place is the first restaurant we will visit.

“This can not be the no.1 ranked tripadvisor restaurant in sitges”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Dined here last week with massive expectations after reading on tripadvisor this is ranked the no. 1 restaurant in sitges. My partner and I started with mussels and fish soup - both very acceptable and very enjoyable. My main course of grilled steak was indescribably tasteless. Same to be said sadly for my partners duck. Very similar vegetables accompanied both dishes and beyond belief, and I mean beyond belief tasteless, and for some unknown reason swimming in oil. Service absolutely 10 out of 10 ....... My half eaten meal went back to the kitchen and obviously the head wAiter was good enough to come over to the table for my explanation. I didn't complain unduly and he was very professional primarily because the price and the money is not of an issue to me it is just a wasted precious evening with my partner. We obviously left disappointed with the restaurant and flabbergasted with tripadvisor reviews that we are rapidly loosing confidence in the site.

What is going on with tripadvisor when every review is 5 stars and this is the no.1 I. Sitges - it seriously isn't. People can't walk out of this restaurant believing they have had wonderful food - if the quality of theirs is similar to what we experienced.
