Good experience, except for one annoying staff

I love the ambiance, it's very relaxing and fun. The tapas we had were good, the gin & tonic was wonderfully refreshing. Love the way it's served - in a nice, tall glass. Unlike most places that serve it in a short glass. The only gripe I have is about their staff calling and harassing me about my... read more

One of our favourites, they have good food (but later realised that they are a bit pricey). Staff were friendly. You have to reserve a seat as it is always full.

Great food and nice place but the amount of waiters looking at how you eat is really bad... the place would be better with 30% less staff... Ow and when raining, consider an inside table... Worth a visit ... for sure...

We stayed away from the noise of Bukit Bintang but were glad we went there for this restaurant. We ate at the bar and were so hungry that we over ordered. Luckily, our server took the time to talk us down from 8 tapas to 5. My wife liked the Manchego on toast (she never met a cheese she doesn't... More

Tapas is in everywhere and most of it is a knock-off. Whilst this is far from real or Spanish, it had good tables, good service, good quality food and reasonable prices. Wine list was good but a bit pricey.

You wouldn't expect such a good tapas place in this very touristy and overpriced street. Went here the first time randomly and was very positively surprised so came back here a week later and will go again when back in KL. Good food and big portions. Alcohol is expensive but that's everywhere in KL. I'm getting hungry again thinking about... More

Had very nice dinner great food great service. I don't eat lamb to often but their lamb chops are wonderful. And their pork rib ends and garlic shrimp are great. Tried the Jamon Iberico Bellata which was good. Finished off with paella Mixta was yummy. With great Service. Recommend any time in KL.

Went there for the second time and was really good. But as a tip: you have to reserve they are always full... Atmosphere is nice and they do a lot of birthday party's...

We had a loooong dinner here during our stay in KL. Tapas were amazingly good, wine tasty and tha atmosphere was very nice. Service was also friendly and fast. Only tiny minus was that we did book a table earlier that day on the place, but when we arrived on the agreed time, there were no table booked for us.... More

The "patatas bravas" were a local version, they were not like the bravas we eat in spain (and they were not enough cooked). and the spanish omelette can be improved. Nevertheless, the "jamón ibérico" was awesome (expensive) but incredibly good. A quality difficult to find even in Spain
