We found a review in Lonely Planet for El Mediterraneo and have no regrets. The food was fantastic. The service was one of the most courteous and welcoming we had on our entire journey to Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan!

My son and I ate at El Mediterraneo at the end of our five weeks in Sri Lanka and Nepal. We felt a strong need for food other than curries, and tapas sounded good. And they were GREAT. The albondigas (tiny meatballs) and potatas bravas (roasted potatos with an excellent piquant sauce) were exceptional. As were the Serrano ham with... More

We visited this restaurant at lunchtime. There were many of us but that did not faze the staff. Our four course set menu was excellent. The fish was soft and delicate, cooked just right. Would certainly recommend a visit if you are in that area of the city.

Went here years ago when they first opened and hadn't been back until last week. Nice selection of tapas dishes and some nice mains. Steak was excellent, nice house red to go with it too.

Very attentive, friendly service and a pleasant Mediterranean atmosphere (apart from the weather!). Wonderful, authentic Spanish food - a real gem in the chaos of Kathmandu and a welcome change from curry. Highly recommended.
