Nice and quiet place, the staff is really friendly and the food is good! I loved the paella!! But the sangria is horrible... It's industrial and really no taste such a shame for a spanish restaurant... I recommand the place but not the sangria...

We sat outside and ordered a bottle of house red wine with eggplant and hummus crostini, croquettes, bacon wrapped dates and potatoes with aioli. We were not disappointed! There was music inside but maybe some music on the patio would make the ambience even better. I would definitely recommend this if you're looking for a little switch from the local... More

Lovely atmosphere, attentive service, delicious food. Couldn't have asked for more. Was fairly pricey for Malaysia but you do get what you pay for. Highlight was the bacon wrapped date and almonds... Incredible.

Really nice bar/restaurant serving tapas style food. We ordered a lot of different things off the menu such as chicke, chorizo, prawns, Spanish omelette etc. All the food that came was very nice and although tapas the portions were decent. We ask had rioja alongside. The food had some very nice flavours. The place was busy and had such a... More

We've been in KL for about 5 weeks and of all the places we have eaten, this would probably fall almost last on my list. Not to say it was terrible, because it wasn't - but it just didn't make me want to rush back for anything. We had four different tapas - salad with avocado, chirozo with bread, Spanish... More

Tapas really tasty and, as tapas go, good sized portions. Pinchos - make sure your beer is served really gelado! (ice-cold).

We have been to this restaurant several times, trying out the different items on their menu. Each time we have come away impressed. Try as we could, we just didn't find a mediocre dish! The restaurant isn't cheap, but makes up by providing generous portions. Highly recommended are the sardines and the Jamón ibérico. Superb!

We're there yesterday. The atmosphere is nice, but none of the tapas chosen stood out. Manchego, Ternera, Tortilla and Setas were not really Spanish style. Everything was a bit greasy and setas were simply mushrooms, not setas. The best deal of the night was Belgium Elephant beer, which I had not tried before.
