When we first started to dine at La Santa Maria, a couple of decades ago, around late mid-day there were queues all along the wide open frontage and beyond. One could not book in advance and stood in a line, with predominately locals, and waited till an appropriate table became vacant. Nowadays, no long lines and tables available with little... More

This is a restaurant on the beachfront in Sitges. Good spot to eat and watch the people. Menu is available in many languages.

Used to come for the paella. But found it looks like some of the stuff was deep frozen (shrimps) and the waiters usually very friendly were not so much Found it over rated. But ok.

Great place to eat - overlooking the sea front the staff know us well there over the years, but seem to have a charm with most guests. The paella is the most popular dish, I've never had it but my other half has. It's basic comforting Spanish food that is averagely priced, not too expensive but you pay an uplift... More

Mom and family from Spain... so I think I'm dialed in on a good paella - It was very good. Second night we had a Desert night. Again kitchen hit it out of the park. Spanish Whiskey Tart Cake... covered with Whiskey.... but then free poured another shot on both of our tarts. OLE

Great pavement restaurant, I always like a place where the locals go and you can see the waiters greeting them like old friends. I has Spanish sausage and white beans fried with garlic - simple but really good. My wife had a seafood stew which she said was the best meal she'd eaten in Sitges. Will call again when next...

We were 5 friends to enjoy lunch time. The staff was very efficient and nice. This is the perfect place to eat local fresh food. We ordered seafood products and it was absolutely delicious. Chipirones pulpo paella sardinas seiche etc... really a treat. I will definitely go there again. Typical Spanish atmosphere and mixed type of customers. Location is great... More

We ate here several times during our stay in Sitges, very friendly staff, good service, and tasty traditional Spanish food. Nice spot right on the sea front too.
