used to be THE place for brunch but the competition is tight and the restaurant, especially the one at Bangsar Shopping Center, is getting old. The tables and setting are getting old. The cushions are getting out of shape even they recently recovered them. You end up with backache. the price for quality and quantity has deteriorated for the brunch.... More

Enjoyed the outdoor atmosphere and drinks at La Bodega Bangsar. We came for drinks and a light dinner of tapas. Our mistake was ordering tapas. Instead of ordering a numer of tapas dishes at once, we should have just tried one dish before ordering more. Had we ordered one, we would not have ordered any more. From cold, lifeless Tortilla...

We went here to have Spanish tapas and had Malaysian tapas. If you are looking for food drenched in oil with little taste but a nice outdoor evening atmosphere, this is the place for you. The staff was friendly but unhelpful and English language was an issue. Enjoyed the outdoor dining near waterfalls and lighted trees (hence the 3 rating)... More

Actually this is not a restaurant but a "Bar de Tapas" where you can get some small dishes to accompany your drinks during a social entertaining event. The atmosphere is good, but it’s also noisy.

the service was glacial. if you are driving very safe as you could never get drinks at rate fast enough. the crowning glory is that we ordered 4 beers they took 15 minutes to tell us they only had three. one of our party graciously said he was fine. after another 10 minutes two arrived with apologies. after complaining the...

The good: * Great outdoor seating (particularly nice in the evening). * Delicious fruit smoothies - really, really good for a hot day. * Quite good tapas (particularly the meat balls). * Nice location outside Bangsar Shopping Centre - can always flee to WIP, 21 or another place. * Good for tourists to see that KL does have classy outdoor...
