I went there with some friends recently. We wanted to try out a Spanish restaurant that we haven’t been to before so we decided to give Cava a go. Unfortunately the food wasn’t great. The paella was small and quite bland to be honest. The...other dishes were also so so. The price is also expensive. There are other much better Spanish restaurants in KL. Marta’s Kitchen is still my favorite in KL.More

Had dinner with a few friends 1 day before the Hari Raya holiday. Just came back from a 30 day vacation in Spain and expected to find a good "Spanish" restaurant locally in KL. We ordered 4 tapas, 1 mixed seafood paella and lamb cutlet....The Prawns a la Plancha came first and it was actually Gambas al ajillo. I talked to the waiters and they stressed that it was prawns a la plancha.... (I only found out that their menu stated Prawns a la Plancha but "Cava’s specialty of fresh prawns in rosemary, garlic, and chilli oil" stated underneath .... ). It was my mistake not to check out the small prints in English before ordering. Indeed, the chef or the owner of Cava should have this mistake spotted and have the menu corrected earlier. Nothing wrong with the waiters as they have been told that this is "a la plancha". Pulpo a la Gallega was so bad that it did not sprinkled with any sea salt and the right amount of paprika .. and olive oil was missing too. The octopus was indeed tasteless as well! For the Crispy baby squid, any local restaurants will do a better job and again, the squid was tasteless. The fourth tapas was Baked portobello mushroom and there was nothing to brag about. For the main course, we had Maricos Paella and it was totally not acceptable as the rice were simply cooked somewhere and put on the pan for "show" - No Crust or any rice being stuck to the bottom of the pan. The prawns were OK but clams and mussels were tasteless as they came directly from the frozen seafood mix bag. The Grilled NZ lamb cutlet was ok though a little chewy. Overall, a bad experience for me and will not return again!More

Had a lovely dinner date with the husband for our very wedding anniversary dinner. Food was great. The only disappointing dish was the cold cuts platter which did not come with Ibérico meat surprisingly. Other than that, it was a very pleasant meal. Despite our...booking being very last minute, the restaurant did kindly prepare a cake for us to celebrate our wedding anniversary.More

Was at this place earlier tonight with family. Place was full. But inspite of the number of customers the service was really fast. The decor and ambiance was really good. As for food....we ordered the black ink paela....baby squid....lamb boulletes.....cod fritters....i think....potatos....and a prawn soup...like thing.....cant remember the names. Everything was nice. Yes a pricey place....but still worth going to occasionally. Dinner...mainly tapas for 6 of us came to 400.00.....out of which 100.00 was for a jug of sangria. Worth going here....if you have money to splurge. Ps theres also a very reasonably priced lunch menu. Special.mention must be made of their staff....very attentive...very hard working..esp the young lady who took care of our table ie a Ms Rose.More

The Tapas plata for seafood and meats. Poor selections of meat cuts. Poor quality breads. Poor presentation. Tons of low quality products, but charge a premium! Very very poor in value. I can get all the ingredients from local supermarket. Salad with orange dressing. Dressing...was too sweet. It’s like eating Marmalade. Over powering. Gambia’s ala Planca. Reasonably well cooked...but what’s the Rosemary doing in there? And more poor quality breads to go with it... Chicken tenders with aioli..more like eating bread crumbs then chicken tenders. Frying oil taste rancid. Worst is the fact that the bread crumbs soaked it all up. Poor presentation. Chicken is thin as cardboard papers. Hmmm...at least McDonald nuggets are thicker! Forgettable food. Forgettable service. Definitely not a place I will want to return.More

The atmosphere and the service are excellent. The soup, Sopa de Mariscos and the Chocolate Dream was really delicious. Would definitely return for these 2 dishes. The main, Paella with seafood was nothing to shout about. It had an after taste as if it was...wrapped in either grapevine leaf or some other leave before being put in the paella pan. The steak was cooked to perfection and for me lacked a little salt. Would however return to this restaurant to try their other dishes.More

I have been searching for the beat sangria in KL city for a long time and believe that I may have found it at Cava (please let me know if you think you know of better) Most spanish restaurants put chunks of fruit into the...wine, which kinda sucks especially when you bite into an orange peel but Cava solves this buy blending the fruits with their sangria. Favourite tapas are the goat cheese, oxtail and prawns ala plancha. The squid ink paella with chilli padi dip is the best way to finish the delightful meal off. Cava is priced on the high end but there are few in KL that can beat it for a satisfying special night out.More
