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

When we first arrived in Sitges we passed this taps bar and later that evening went back, amazing tapas that are spread out all along the entire bar area, we ended up going back 2 more times, the later the better as they put out more and more new items as the evening progresses, it's filled with tourists and locals...

A friend recommended us El Donostiarra on Calle Nou. We were 6 of us and when we called to ask whether they had space they told us they were full. They suggested however to call their other place on Calle Mayor, which is called the same. The restaurant was not exactly cosy or inviting. Football was on (Barca was playing)... More

You select from the various tapas or pintxos that they have on display, each has a toothpick stuck into the finger-food item. At the end of your meal you take your plate up to the bar (if you are not already sitting by the bar) and they count your toothpicks to know how much you owe, pretty neat. I loved... More

This place was quaint .The staff was very nice. We had plenty of tapas and 2 drinks and our bill was only 14 euros. Not gourmet but very good and an excellent value.

El Donostiarra have a great selection of very tasty pinxtos at pretty good prices. It was the perfect place for us to have a relaxed, tasty, cheap and quick lunch away from the beach. Would definitely head back for another lunch if in town.

We have been here a few times, two years ago we watched the World Cup here. This time around when we went in we weren't greeted as usual, there was hardly any atmosphere and the staff weren't very enthusiastic. We left after two sticks and two beers. For a small stick here it is £1.65 and in Lizarran it is... More
