Where to Eat
There's no shortage of Restaurants in Sitges, however here are small restaurants that we recommend:
- Le Queenz Dinner Show: Decorated in a modern style, you can taste Spanish flavours and enjoy the cabaret show. You will receive a particularly great welcome with a glass of champagne. Something you won't regret!
- El Trull: A great local for more traditional Spanish food with a wide variety of tapas. An all-round great restaurant that's ideal to visit with friends, family, or a partner.
A tip if you want to eat something local: From winter until spring you can order a Xató Penedes. This dish is a salad of endive, tuna, and local cod that usually is accompanied by an omelette and is very typical of Sitges.
