“Ruby's A great place for a drink and a natter”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

Ben - the manager of this bar has been working in the bar trade in Sitges for many, many years so he knows how to run a good bar. He runs the place well because he selects excelent staff. The bar is part of the Parrot group and it is not unusual to see the owner of Parrots in the bar either helpingm out or just mixing with the customers. The gem of this bar is a young barman who works behind the bar preparing all the drinks. If the customer simply asks for a small beer or the most complex cocktail this bioy can fix the drink in a matter of moments. Enter the item onto the computer sales software ready for another member of the staff to collect the drink and deliver it to your table. Ruby's is a bar for people who go with the flow and are out to enjoy themselves. I was in Sitges for over 2 weeks in early September and never had a bad moment at Ruby's. The only poor point...... it really needs bigger toilets there is usually a bit of a queue.

“Avoid - rude manager”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

We came here for an early evening meal, most of the bars - restaurants in the local area where busy apart from this one, which maybe in hindsight should have been a warning.
The manager took our drinks order and when my friend asked for a certain type of white wine his reply was aggressively rude, along the lines of 'the wine you want isn't the ******* house wine' which was fine, we didn't want the house wine, we were politely asking for a different wine. Again my friend asked for the specific wine, when the manager shouted at us again and told us to' [--] out of the restaurant' We left straight away, this nasty verbal aggression was completly unnecessary, and came from nowhere. Steer clear of this place, Sitges is full of great places to eat, this is not one of them.

“rude unpleasant manager”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

visited this bar when it first opened a couple of years ago
found the managers determination to make 'funny' comments boorish so never returned

whilst passing the bar this year noticed 2 chaps we hadn't seen for a while and stopped to talk for a few minutes
we were stood in the street at the side of a table on the outdoor terrace when the manager asked us to buy a drink or move on
when we didnt react straight away he came back to say 'I've told you once'

it certainly is a fun bar

“A great place to while away a few after dinner hours”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We found this bar on our first night............8 nights later we had been every night . It was that good. From the moment you order your drinks it becomes clear you are going to have a good time. Lovely staff serving the drinks (Although apparently only paid 3 euros an hour and they don't get to keep the tips!!!! - sorry Ruby's sort this out with the owner!!)
