This was my second attempt at Maricel in 2 years. We went on a Sunday for lunch. The menu is not huge and this is a good sign. I started with a melting warm octopus dish. This was absolutely amazing... I've never had this kind of texture in mouth before. It's a 5* dish. The Ceviche is one of the... More

Nice restaurant, fantastic service and food! You had better book a table in advance. It is a bit expensive to be honest but the quality is good. They also don half portion, so that you can try different things! Recommended.

Starting from 9 in the evening through to at least 1 o'clock, the food, service and atmosphere in this plush restaurant situated on the promenade just beneath the church in Sitges, was terrific. The "degustation" type meal was varied and interesting, with copious amounts of food with wine to match. The evening ended with patrons being given a sack of... More

The Spanish don't share the British love of their pets. Many reputable restaurants in Spain do not welcome dogs, which is uninviting for many British visitors with doggies. The staff at Maricel are incredibly welcoming and friendly. The menu is fascinating and makes diners want to choose everything. We decided on the Set Market Menu, which was 4 courses plus... More

The fish soup with prawns was delicious. The Prawns on garlic sauce were the best I had in my life. Fery tasty veal tongue with pasta. The only course I was a bit disappointed about was a chocolate dessert- just did not have the taste I expected and was too heavy. Anyways, this was one in my top 5 dining... More

Some very good, some very bad dishes. Visited 3 years ago, was sublime. Came back today, disappointed. New chef? New owner? 2 times way too much salt, returned one plate (€30), no apologies. Charged us half the price of the dish. Friendly but tensed staff. Will not come back.

Maricel without any doubt is the best restaurant in Sitges, at least in its category. Service always is impeccable, and the food is just delicious - whether you go for meat or fish dishes. Tables on the terrace are nicely laid, and the interior also is well decorated. The wine recommendation this time was very interesting and went well with... More

We ate here on a previous visit to Sitges and decided to go again. The food here is among the most refined food that I've ever had. We had the tasting menu which was delightful. We look forward to returning here when we visit Sitges in the future.

We ate here while on a day trip and found the dishes served were wonderfully presented and tasted great. A little pricey but worth it based on the quality.

When dinner is costing 100 euro per head with wine it better be good. Maricel is a favorite place of ours for special occasions. There are some wonderful dishes on the menu and the chef is really talented. The staff out on the terrace are excellent. The staff in the inner room are bored and disinterested. At these prices that... More
