Editor's review

Opened in 1940 by the Andreu family, El Cable is considered by many as the best tapas bar in Sitges and something of a legend in these parts. Now in it's third generation of Andreu's (Francesc and Manel are the current team), El Cable specialises in getting the basics right such as their delicious patatas bravas, fried potatoe chunks in spicy sauce - the staple side order of any good tapas meal! Along with such classics, you can also order innovative house specialties such as the McCable, a mini-burger with brie and pepper which far exceeds anything Ronald's kitchen has ever rustled up. A great atmosphere and friendly service make this the perfect place to sample Spain's most famous gastronomic phenomenon.

We go to Sitges a couple of times every year. This place always looks good but we won't ever go back. Last couple of visits the service was poor but we thought we would give it another go. Unfortunately the service was once again awful. Staff are sullen and rude. Bad attitudes and act as though they are doing you a favour by allowing you in. Real shame because it looks good. Arrogance loses you customers though.

The food isn't bad and it is a very lively atmosphere but the service was slow and they are actually quite rude. Not a pleasant experience overall.

Rude staff. The waiter told us to 'Go fu** ourselves'

Terrible Service. Waiters are rude and have no manners. The environment is not nice, too noisy and chaotic. Also the price doesnt help, for simple tapas it's quite expensive.

Avoid this place like the plague! My friend and I decided to give this place a try after reading some decent reviews from a couple of places. I was seriously left disappointed. Do not waste your money on this tapas place. There are plenty of better places out there in Sitges with better service and quality food.

I was first confronted by the rudest bar server everrrrrrr. This woman had an awful attitude and kept rolling her eyes as I was trying to make a decision as to which tapas to have (I should have simply walked out of the bar by then). After ordering bravas and calamares, I asked if I could just simply order tap water but was totally refused and told that I HAVE to order a bottled drink. I'm sorry...but what type of tapas bar refuses to serve tap water to a customer. When the food arrived, everything was absolutely below par. The patatas bravas was drenched with pounds of oil and mayo. The calamares a la romana tasted bland (and I mean BLAND) and had a soggy batter coating. I just can't comprehend why people would want to waste money in a place with bad service and awful food.
