Description: El Cable is a Tapas Bar in Sitges. Our tapas are really tasty (our customers say that they are the best tapas in Sitges and around).Some of our tapas have the best reputation in town, such as, Patatas Bravas (french fries with a spicy sauce), squid roman style (fried rings) or our homemade ham croquettes, to name but afew. And we have been in this business for years:The Andreu family opened el Cable in 1940, in a different premises not far from where the bar is located now. In February of 1956 we opened el Cable where it is now. The whole building was built by members of the same family. In the beginning, the first floor was the family’s home and the upper floors were guestrooms (a hostel).In the sixties we lived through the northern tourism boom working as a bar and hostel.In the late sixties the bar was given to one of the family son´s: Sisco Andreu (Sisco del Cable) and the rest of the building stopped working as a hostel and was turned into apartments.In 2003 el Cable was passed onto Sisco’s Sons: Francesc and Manel, the families third generation in the business. From then on, el Cable has gone from strength to strength, it has been updated and modernised while still keeping the original style.Nowadays we are not only a little town’s bar: we are the bar of this town, a friendly local meeting point for many people in Sitges.

It can be slightly intimidating finding a seat but it is worth persisting as El Cable offers fantastic tapas at a very reasonable price and the waiters are calmly efficient. Suggest you try the 'specials' that have won local prizes.

Juan was an outstanding server! He was very friendly and welcoming and also extremely helpful and efficient. The place is hopping with locals and some tourists. Then tapas is excellent and the atmosphere is wonderful. It was a highlight of our stay in Sitges.

This was by far the best food we had in sitges! It's a busy little place but the staff are efficient and service is quick. When we got the bill we were convinced they'd undercharged us but they hadn't! €15 each for tapas and drinks (including alcohol). Their patatas bravas is the best I've ever had!

After reading so much about El Cable we decided to go, must say it made our trip to sitges the food was great and the wine that was recommended to go with it was excellent too. yes it gets busy but that's a sign that they are doing things well and the price was very reasonable. A must if visiting sitges

My wife and I came here last week. We got there at 19.30 as it opened and were seated straight away.
We were surprised how many staff were behind the bar in such a small venue but we realised why this was as it filled up rapidly with tourists and mainly locals. We were brought drinks straight away and the waiter left us to look at the menu. A few minutes later he returned and took our order from the tapas style menu. We had ordered 4 dishes and was about to order a fifth when he assured me that he thought 4 would be plenty which proved to be spot on. We ordered the mushrooms ,the chicken curry,patatas bravas and the cod fritters These were all fresh and delicious leaving us nicely full. The prices were very reasonable and the waiter was very friendly and efficient. Will definitely return.
