Good location. Packed with a happy crowd. The pintxos at the bar looked good, but we made the mistake of ordering a meal in the adjacent dining room. The portions were so hefty we should have ordered less. Unfortunately, our food was average at best and the server was slow and couldn't get the check right.

We visited this wonderful wee tapas bar years ago and again today. What a treat to discover that the quality and diversity of the tapas, the value of the wines and delightful service has remained consistent over time. The cost relative to quality is exceptional and if you are in Sitges you will not be disappointed. We will return once... More

Couldn't recommend more highly. Great tapas, huge variety of both cold and hot and the best vermouth in the world as well as friendly and welcoming staff. Not expensive either. Fabulous at lunchtime or in the evening.

We visit this tapas bar on lots of occasions during our stay n Sitges. The wide variety of hot and cold tapas is astounding! Made even more delicious by serving Basque Cidre! Very welcoming service and great tradition atmosphere. A must for any tapas lover.

Good choice of tapas and wines by the glass. No sherries at all; I asked. Good prices; can sit by the bar or sit at a table.

We stayed with friends who had rented an apartment for the winter and this was their local. We went several times, lured in by the sign saying they made the worst vermouth in the world. They didn't, it was excellent as were the magnificent array of chilled pinxos and the wonderful freshly cooked hot tapas that arrived at just the... More

Went here twice. Once with family and then as a couple. It is a great little bar with a great selection of very tasty pinxtos at pretty good prices. I would recommend with no hesitation. The house red was very nice at a reasonable 2.5 euro's a glass. You grab a plate , take what you want and your bill... More

We visited here to try the tapas, they tasted OK (not amazing and they weren't cheap) but after we had started eating we were slightly put off by the realisation that the food was left uncovered on the bar and there were lots of flies around. What really appalled us though was that one of the chef's came out to... More
