The owner of SOL Steaks & Grill personally imported the cast-iron charcoal grill here from Barcelona, and the menu relies heavily on it. This is the type of grill that Spanish restaurants revolve around. Don't miss the chance to dine in one of the narrowest historic buildings on the Sittard market square. The menu is a beef-lover's delight: Black Angus, Irish Shannon, Dutch dikbil, and more. Also a wide selection of steaks, finger food, fish dishes, appetizers, and desserts.

Restaurant P

A new restaurant in the picturesque Grevenbicht. Opened its doors in 2012. A restaurant with an unusual story, in that it is run by a group of 'pensionados' - people who have taken up the restaurant in their well-earned retirement - and 'passionados' - devoting their passion to the restaurant alongside a career. They include a doctor, a butcher, two managers, and a restaurant owner, combining their passion for all things culinary into a new purpose in life. Of course, the 'P' stands for pensioner - as well as passion, pure, perfection, and pleasure. Irresistible Mediterranean food at an attractive price in a relaxed atmosphere. Good press started pouring in in the national newspapers barely 2 months after launch.
