There are no tapas like tapas in Spain, but, for KL, Pinchos does a really good job, delivering tasty and interesting tapas. My only dissapointmen with this place was that we showed up when it opened and already 80% of the tables had a reserved sign on them, with the name of the guests on them, as we were there,... More

As a Spanish, I was reluctant at first to visit this restaurant. When I travel I usually like experiencing new local food, but I just bumped into Pinchos with a Malaisian friend who raved about this place. He wanted me to visit this restaurant to give an objective and knowledgeable opinion about the quality of these Spanish tapas. And I... More

This restaurant is located in Changkat Bukit Bintang and has great selection of tapas, and they all look so good. Went with friends and we ordered about 7 tapas and they were all great. One favourite has to be the sauteed mushroom. It was one of the best I have tried so far and would really go back there again... More

It's a best tapas restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. The food was good a bit expensive but worth to pay. Service was really good. Manager is so friendly and knowledgeable I was alone and had a great time with him. He made me a espresso martini I can say the best espresso martini I've ever had. Will come back soon.

Ask for food specials available from time to time. Friendly and attentive staff. But if you're looking for a quiet couple time than not that suitable. Can get too loud

A packed Friday night at Pinchos and the place was buzzing. Excellent service, drinks flowed freely and the tapas of a very high standard for an Asian Spanish restaurant. Prawns in a chilli garlic butter sauce were excellent. Loved the chorizo with crouton. Sardines on crispy toast were lovely as were the Spanish goats cheese and tomato. Bowls of paella... More

After reading many reviews on Tripadvisor I selected Pinchos for a gathering of a few friends meeting for the first time. The service was ok, atmosphere was pretty good but the food was disappointing especially after reading all the glowing reviews here. We ordered a cheese and ham platter, mushrooms, paella and a bread dish with ham and prawns to... More

Tapas? Oh yes and really good, until now the best (Spanish) Tapas bar in Asia (better then in HK, BK or SIG). The only thing that they could improve, is that the ham should be cut thicker (by hand) and that the Pimientos did not have the proper salt (Maldon). Next month I'll be back in KL and Pinchos will...
