A guide to the best restaurants in Sitges

Holidays to Costa Dorada are the perfect time to relax, and in Sitges you’ll find a great range of eateries along the coast and tucked away on quiet side streets away from the crowds. Sitges doesn’t stick to the mould of other Spanish holiday destinations when it comes to its culinary scene. Its top restaurants feature a number of tapas options but most have a unique twist, combining fresh ingredients with influences from around the world and home-grown recipes that have been tried and tested.

Cabaret nights at Queenz Dinner Show

Pop into this glamorous spot after making the most of our Costa Dorada package deals and you’ll be treated to dinner and a show – and a glass of cava on arrival. The menu has a lot on offer, including Mediterranean tapas, main courses and desserts. The cabaret show here is top notch, with drag queens singing and dancing all night long.

Amazing dinner deals at El Trull

This upscale restaurant has a cosy interior with wine cellar decor. The fare here is primarily Spanish, though it also includes the odd plate of chicken wings and a burger. For an incredible steal of €22, you can get a three-course meal with gourmet mains like lamb shank and fish stew, plus coffee and wine.

Britain meets Spain at Nem Sitges

The menu at this tapas restaurant might not be especially big, but that’s because the chefs have perfected what’s already there. Nem Sitges’ owner is from the UK, so some of the tapas here – such as the steak tartare, roasted pumpkin and cod with wasabi peas – has an undeniable British edge while still being distinctly Spanish.

Huge taster platters at La Incidencia Del Factor Vi

Many opt for the taster menu at this sleek, Mediterranean eatery. That way you can sample the highlights without any worries that you’ve left something out. There are also a la carte mains like goat’s leg and beef fillet, all best enjoyed with a glass of vino from the restaurant’s long list.

Authentic home recipes at Davallada 9 Restaurante Cafeteria

This unique, family-run restaurant is set in a renovated fisherman’s cottage. On offer here is a set menu of three-courses with wine included, plus a range of a la carte options. For starters and mains you can expect dishes like fried calamari and paella, but make sure to leave room for dessert as the recipes belong to the chef’s mother.

Farm to table at 33 Sitges

This quaint cafe screams modern, farm-to-table fare and even has live jazz on Sunday afternoons. Highlights here include pumpkin quiche and stuffed aubergine, plus prime cuts of beef and a mixture of Spanish and Catalan wines.

Candlelit elegance at Komokieras

Classy meets quality at Komokieras, an elegant eatery that specialises in fresh ingredients and a relaxed atmosphere. You’ll be treated to a glass of cava upon arrival followed by outstanding dishes, such as steak empanadas and veal skirt, until you can’t eat anymore.

Gourmet burgers at Big Al's Burger Bar

Don’t be fooled by this restaurant’s simple name – it’s much more than a burger joint. Here you can sample creative burgers in flavours such as BBQ or chili, accompanied with curly fries. The restaurant also features a great list of craft beers and house wines, all at prices that make cheap holidays to Costa Dorada well worthwhile.

Down home favourites at La Picara Sitges

La Picara Sitges may be a traditional tapas restaurant, but its fare is anything but average. The ingredients are fresh, the staff are friendly and the presentation is creative. Highlights here are seafood treats like stuffed, deep-fried mussels and prawns in garlic sauce, plus veggie favourites like stuffed artichokes.

Quirky surroundings at El Santo

This eatery specialises in relaxed cuisine made gourmet, with well-crafted burgers colliding with Spanish tapas. The decor here is notably quirky, with familiar icons decked in superhero gear and creative murals covering the walls.
