Cocas are a type of Spanish focaccia with different condiments (ham, salami, cheese, etc). We had the coca with salami and the one with ham and Brie. Absolutely delicious. We also had a salad with goat cheese. The goat cheese was literally melting in the mouth. The house red wine was very good too. A bit expensive for Spanish standards.... More

In one of the side streets of Sitges lies this warm family run restaurant. You're greeted by the owner and immediately feel like you've known him for years. The food was simple traditional Spanish/Catalan and it was so good we returned the following night just so we could sample the rest of the menu. The place is full of locals... More

This little family run restaurant is something unique in town. The food is great, the wines suggested always very well picked and the owner very charming and generous. When you leave you feel like having made another friend. A place where you want to go back to...

Ate at this traditional restaurant for the second year running and had almost the same meal as last year. Catalan bread with brie and iberian ham, followed by Butifara - both perfect, would definately return on our next visit.

We were greeted at the door by the very friendly Spanish owner. He was more than happy to recommend a few of his favorite dishes. The cheese platter, Spanish omelette and pâté selection are all delicious. The food and customer service were so good that we returned on our second night in Sitges.

We came here on recommendation and were greeted by Charlie. He was very helpful in choosing a suitable vegetarian dish. The food was all delicious and the wine went down well!

Had a great dinner here with 3 friends. Had the pate selection, cheeses and cod starters were delicious and did not disappoint! We then ordered the specials steak and traditional pork sausage... These combined with the homemade aioli were fab! Atmosphere was super chilled and the owner/waiter was super welcoming we felt at home! Would definitely recommend!
