There are so many words to describe this great place but I will stick to 2. YUMMI and EXCELELNT! It's one of these places where you can go everyday as their tapas (and other dishes) are soooo good. It is always packed which might be the only small negative point as it can get quiet loud.

This review by a solo business traveller is based on three visits to Pinchos tapas bar in December 2014. Pior to these visits my preferred tapas bar in KL was Ohla in Ampang. Both are excellent but very different. Ohla is small with a very contemporary and limited menu selection whilst Pinchos is a vibrant venue with an extensive and... More

My best friend treated me to dinner there and it's really one of the best pork tapas in town. We were there early so the place was still empty. The restaurant staff was very friendly and helpful. Recommended a few tapas and wine. Everything was yummy! The place gets crowded later. Best to make reservations.

Fantastic Spanish food in this little tapas bar in the international Bukit Bintang, for some dishes even better than in Spain (in our experience). Still, be aware of two facts: it is frequented mostly by non-locals, and the service is far from being at the warm service of a Spanish tapas bar: the dishes are taken away from the table... More

Pinchos is mellow, relaxed restaurant/bar near the top end of Cangkat. It has wide range of imported meats that grace a delicious tapas menu and an excellent selection of wines, beers and cocktails. The staff are friendly and do a lot to enhance the ambience of the place. A great place for quiet drink and/or meal and a top ten... More

Located at the top of what seems to be the latin/european bar quarter of KL. Very busy and a decent and cosmopolitan clientele. Tasty cocktails and interesting tapas. Not cheap nor too dear on the pocket.

We chose 5 different tapas from menu. Four was recommended by waitress still we were dissapointed to the taste of our courses excepted one (goat cheese on toast) wich was REALLY good. However, price of the courses were reasonable.

Went to Pinchos for the first time with high expectations thanks to the great reviews on TA. As always with tapas you are uncertain of the portion sizes before ordering but we ended up with five tapas. Unfortunately the portions were hugh - it would have been so much better with smaller portions and a cheaper price. The food tasted... More

I was in Kuala Lumpur for a week and had to go back after my first visit despite the jerks that haven't figured out people aren't keen on ingesting their second hand cigarette smoke... Apparently, KL hasn't caught on to the trend of prohibiting smoking in restaurants... I guess this place is as much a bar as a restaurant. Like... More

Pinchos is a place where you need to reserve a table in advance if you want to get a chance to taste their excellent tapas. Honestly, it's worth it. Pinchos is an excellent restaurant on the popular chankat bukit Bintang street with a nice atmosphere and also a very good wine list. Highly recommended !
