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 !

this is really good tapas and the portions are big compared to tapas in Europe. 2 tapas each will suffice! Really tasty and a decent wine menu to go too.

Service was very fast, friendly and efficient. We ordered some tapas and highly recommend the jamón ibérico the bellota which is a bit more expensive but super good!

Great place to hang out on Friday or Saturday nightin KL. Great atmosphere with good selection of Spanish music.The quality of food has always been consistent, though it is simple dishes, yet tasty and fresh! I have never had a bad meal in this restaurant. Waiters' service very courteous and obliging. Music becomes livelier in later evening , and guests... More

In the very popular Changkat area of KL, you could do a lot of sampling before finding authentic Spanish tapas as good as this. The locals and the expatriates have found out, so it becomes difficult to ring a table after 8pm, but they do open up if willing to wait. Good wine, fantastic tapas and good paella. Do try... More
