This was a splurge for us budget-conscious backpackers, but it was definitely worth it. 1000NPR per person for a 13 course tapas feast (plus the 23% tax and service charges) isn't cheap compared the surrounds, but it will probably be one of the cheapest and best value tapas experiences you will have. It included dessert and a coffee/tea too.

El Mediterraneo will never make you miss the Spain as we get real Spanish food there. The owner speaks perfect Spanish and with his personal attention to the kitchen and the guests, makes it all the more fun and enjoyable.

If you are feeling homesick for Southern European food, the owner has created a little corner of Spain in Nepal. Safe food and drink for those who want to have a break from eating in "safe mode". Good and friendly service, finding a gazpacho in Patan is a nice surprise, the food has the flavors of the Mediterranean cuisine.

Although there is always a room to improve, I'd like to say that this place had definitely got an aroma. The chef, as we were told, has lived in Spanish over 10 years and learnt how to cook during the time. We had authentic risotto, salad and espresso there. The egg caramel pudding could have been better though. It's a... More

If your looking for an excellent European meal in Kathmandu, this is the place. The friendly owner speaks Spanish and English. The gazpacho is just the best. The salads are washed with purified water making them safe for consumption, while being delicious. The meat is generous and perfectly prepared.

El medeteraneo is an authentic Spanish restaurant in Kathmandu. The proprietor Bibhusan Joshi spent many years in Barcelona to observe and learn Spanish cuisine. We ordered various tapas, seafood paella, grilled fish and stuffed calamari. The taste was very close to Spanish paella, and pleasantly different from the usual Kathmanduite spicy taste. Hospitality from the owner and staff was excellent.
