We have been going to this place since 2014. I must say, their portions have shrunk substantially and this has affected the standard in their food. We were there last week, and noticed that a few tapas were not as good as they used to...be. For example, their baked mushrooms have shrunk and this in turn affected the texture of the dish. The mushrooms now look wrinkled and pathetic. To add insult to injury, their Spanish croquettes used to be very good. But now, they have reduced the size of these croquettes so much that one can no longer taste the creaminess of the fillings and can only taste the breadcrumbs coating of the croquettes. The whole thing tasted dry. For their Gambas al ajillo (garlic prawns), although the size of their prawns is still the same but I noticed that they now give you 6 prawns instead of 8. In the past, they were quite generous with the garlic bits in this dish (hello, it's called garlic prawns for a reason!), it has now reduced by at least 60%! I understand that times are tough with Covid-19, but I hope the operators can continue to maintain the standard in their food. After all, they did revise their prices not too long ago. From a concerned loyal customer.More

This restaurant is on the up-market side. Food & drinks are expensive compare to the other bar & restaurants along changkat. Food portions are served more for snacks size. I enjoyed the oven baked mushrooms & chicken garlic. The pan tumaca is kind of solid...& dry. Nice dining experience. Clean restaurant & friendly service crew.More

I have been coming to Pinchos for over 7 years, and they have been incredibly consistent with their food quality, cocktails, service and atmosphere. Undoubtedly the best Spanish bar in KL. Highly recommended!

Something happened with the portions of food and the pouring of alcohol on the drinks and cocktails. Not sure if ownership changed or Covid is affecting that bad to this tapas bar... we are clients since 2 years ago and suddenly the value for money...is gone ... Sad to write this.More

Thank you for sharing your review. Yes, it is true that we have changed the presentation and adjusted the portioning of some of our tapas. This was part of the new plan for the year 2020 which was delayed due to the lockdown. Some items...More

We ordered 5-6 different tapas and they were quite delicious. A bit oily and expensive though for such small plates. Service was good and drinks too.

Amazing tapas! Had 5 dishes. Great manchego and the bikini sandwich (cheese and iberico ham toasted!!) was to die for. Would happily return.

It's a non-hallal place... but there are lots of tapas without meat (They also serve sea food tapas!)
