Maricel for me sits in a class of of its own. Really excellent food, great service and setting. Food is French in style with some Spanish favourites (such as Octopus, Paella). Treat yourself if you want somewhere classy with great quality food and wine. Its probably one of the more expensive restaurant in town but worth it. Don't be put off by the seemingly lack of customers in the evenings, we have often dined there when only 4 other tables are in use. Lunch time is totally different, and we regularly see it full to the brim, especially on weekends. Great place for a romantic dinner for two or a cosy meal with friends. Highly recommended. Do start with a glass of their excellent Cava!

Nice reception, good service, quick as well.
Interior is a bit older looking, but we sat outside.
Food was very fresh and nucely prepared, not cheap, i'd recommend this!

Maricel has outstanding Spanish cruisine with a great waterfront view of the coast. The ambience, service, food and wine list are first rate.

The food was tasty, so there's nothing to complain about in that respect. It wasn't THAT great though, considering the high prices. The service is flawless, but rather pretentious - as if stiff manners would motivate the high prices.
What annoyed me more than anything, though, and reduced my score considerably, was this: When waiting for the food, we were served an "amuse-bouche" and (very good) bread. Very nice - until it turned out that we were charged separately for this! If I hate anything, it is to be charged for something I never asked for - no matter what it is or how small the cost. I would say this is equal to theft, and I've never experienced it in any restaurant before.
Besides, with those prices one would certainly expect bread to be included!
There are plenty and plenty of nice restaurants in Sitges with at least equally tasty (and more filling) food, friendly (and more relaxed) staff - but at half the price. Try one of them instead, and don't be fooled by this restaurant to believe that they're offering you anything extraordinary - except for the price.

Went to the restaurant with a large group and we really enjoyed the atmosphere and food.
The restaurant is right on the street that runs along the beach in Sitges. This day it was raining, so we were sat inside the semi-open covered area in front of the building. This turned out to be very nice; providing a view of the ocean, but still covered and warm.
The food was very good and well presented. An array of appetizers/tapas came first and each one of them was tasty and well presented. The highpoint of the meal was a paella that was simply delicious. Very good meal overall.
The service was fine - no complaints but nothing out of the ordinary either.
