Lunch here to eat tapas and Spanish food. Even we are the only one family in the restaurant, service was so poor and inefficient that we asked if the waitress if she can think by herself from the order to the check... Lamb racks were the biggest mistake we made: smell strong like sheep and overcooked not from Spain recipe... More

dinner and drinks here are nice - one can sit outside (if you don't mind possibly having smokers next to you) and the food was good - enjoyed the fig salad and the calamari, nice variety of different tapas (although a bit pricey if you select quite a bit - it adds up) and the wine was good as well....

It was a saturday 12.30pm and there were only 2, 3 tables (including me and my friend) after we ordered. The fish we ordered was nice . Since there were just the 2 of us, we didn't ordered too many dishes. Will come back for another lunch with a bigger group of friends!

We ordered two tapas and a main. One of the tapas was forgotten. It came with the mains.menu has interesting choices and the seafood paella looked good. We tried lamb shanks and we're diaspointed. Meat was a bit dry, not enough sauce and it was way too sweet. Where was the tomato base or wine base to offset the sweetness?

While there is a wide choice of eating places on the tucked-away Knutsford Terrace in Kowloon, we had enjoyed our meal at El Cid so much on our first visit, we decided to go back on our last night in Hong Kong. While the paella was as good as the first time, we did miss the courteous, friendly and helpful... More

I have it here several times on a trip to Hong Kong. It is a solid place, you will never have a bad meal here, it's just not great. I may be spoiled because I have been to some real Spanish restaurants, so when you do not see any actual Spaniards in the place, it just loses a little bit... More
