Sitges recommendations?

tracey Jun 29, 2008 07:33 PM

A group of friends are making our first trip to Barcelona in late July. While we expect to spend most of our days in Barcelona, we are actually staying in a villa just outside of Sitges. Although I can find lots of good advice here for Barcelona, I'm wondeirng if anyone has any restaurant recommendations for Sitges? Also, our villa has a barbecue and I'm wondering if there are any suggestions for places to buy fresh fish, seafood, etc. that we can cook ourselves?

    I hope this means that no one has eaten there, not that there are no good places to eat! ;-)

      Tracey, I have been watching this thread - sorry there is no info here for you. But I hope when you return you will post anything noteworthy in Sitges - as I am going to be spending some time there myself next year.

      Have a great time!

      A post I made with a suggestion of where you might find some info has been deleted (dunno why - as it only suggested you look at other sites that have a more European membership). Feel free to email me for details (address in my profile).

          OK - so far, a few strikeouts. Some guidebook pointed us to La Masia, and it felt like the kind of place where tour buses show up with the crowds, and the drivers get a fee. Very, very miss-able.

          Friends went to the Mexican place and said it was good, but since we're all from LA, nothing that good.

          We had pizza twice on the beach front road, and those were both fine.

          I really with there was something *good* here - but tomorrow, we'll be in Barcelona, so we'll get some good eats.

            OK - I'm back from Sitges, and I've got some info. It's mostly on my blog here:


            But the bottom line is, the old city (near the church) seemed to have the better restaurants, by far. These places are slightly less touristy and have more authentic and local food.
