BWN member and Sitges resident, Pirkko Kasanen, shares some of her favourite restaurants in this picturesque town on the coast of Barcelona. Her tips on what to order and who to invite are helpful, too.
As she eloquently put it: so many restaurants, so little time!
El Vivero Beach Club restaurant right at the seafront has three levels. On the top: a bar, open to the elements, with fantastic views to the sea and the town. It is lovely any time in good weather and great for enjoying sunsets. The middle level is a bar. The lowest level is a seafood restaurant. We had good paella there.
Address: Paseo Balmins s/n, Tel. 93 894 2149
Mare Nostrum is a trusted and well-known seafood restaurant, “to take important colleagues”. For a reason. We went with Finnish friends. They enjoyed their paella, I loved my dorada.
