we have tried many of the Restaurants at Knutsford terrace but we had not been to El Cid. The place looked great and not too crowded so we were in. the service started a little slow and I had to get up and find a waitress which never floats my boat. The drinks were expensive and the wine list was... More

We mostly came for chill out from the insanity and great cocktails. Mid week was a relaxing time to come and the cocktail menu was quite varied. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Surprisingly we found a couple of vegan options on the tapas menu which were very tasty. Live music by flamenco guitarists set the scene for a Spanish... More

We stopped here few times while visiting bustling kowloon. Situated on the knit Ford terrace it is a welcome yo escape from traffic and noise. The food is great and they make good cocktails too. The service was really nice, they really took the time to chat to us and see if we needed anything. They also had a great... More

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?
