Popped by this place on bikes, and liked the look of the interior. All tables full, so we had two glasses of wine and a plate of tapas on the window ledge on the street. Perfect place to watch the world go by with a...More

Went here three times in the week, first time too busy to even get in the door, the went early for a quick drink, finally a whole evening over (one too many) glasses of wine and plenty of tapas.

It can be slightly intimidating finding a seat but it is worth persisting as El Cable offers fantastic tapas at a very reasonable price and the waiters are calmly efficient. Suggest you try the 'specials' that have won local prizes.

Juan was an outstanding server! He was very friendly and welcoming and also extremely helpful and efficient. The place is hopping with locals and some tourists. Then tapas is excellent and the atmosphere is wonderful. It was a highlight of our stay in Sitges.

This was by far the best food we had in sitges! It's a busy little place but the staff are efficient and service is quick. When we got the bill we were convinced they'd undercharged us but they hadn't! €15 each for tapas and drinks...More

Good place to stop for a drink before dinner. Tapas are served. You can hang out in the street in front of the bar.

As a bar it's great, always buzzing and friendly. The tapas are pretty mediocre, although they are cheap

Description
El Cable is a Tapas Bar in Sitges. Our tapas are really tasty (our customers say that they are the best tapas in Sitges and around).Some of our tapas have the best reputation in town, such as, Patatas Bravas (french fries with a spicy sauce), squid roman style (fried rings) or our homemade ham croquettes, to name but afew. And we have been in this business for years:The Andreu family opened el Cable in 1940, in a different premises not far from where the bar is located now. In February of 1956 we opened el Cable where it is now. The whole building was built by members of the same family. In the beginning, the first floor was the family’s home and the upper floors were guestrooms (a hostel).In the sixties we lived through the northern tourism boom working as a bar and hostel.In the late sixties the bar was given to one of the family son´s: Sisco Andreu (Sisco del Cable) and the rest of the building stopped working as a hostel and was turned into apartments.In 2003 el Cable was passed onto Sisco’s Sons: Francesc and Manel, the families third generation in the business. From then on, el Cable has gone from strength to strength, it has been updated and modernised while still keeping the original style.Nowadays we are not only a little town’s bar: we are the bar of this town, a friendly local meeting point for many people in Sitges.
