Came here again after a few years, service and food is even better. Staff is friendly and prompt. A wide selection of food to choose from, try the pork ribs and if you have a sweet tooth, go for the choclate cake

When we moved to KL in 2015, El Cerdo laid to rest our concerns about finding a good pork restaurant. We've been to El Cerdo at least 5 times over the last 2 years and every time we've succumbed to the roast suckling pig. This...More

Had a normal luncheon here but the food was average. Probably because we had high expectations given the good reviews. Service was also mediocre. Price is also expensive. The atmosphere was probably not as lively as dinner time.More

Very friendly and courteous service. Offered good recommendations of food... the Iberico cheek and skewer. Momotaro salad was something fresh and different. Meatballs with the spaghetti was juicy and moist.

Description
Backed by 40 years of experience in various fine dining kitchens around the globe, Werner Kuhn set up El Cerdo KL, in the year 2005. The restaurant is well known to many as the No. 1 European style Pork Specialty eatery in Kuala Lumpur, focusing on traditional recipes. Having gathered many accolades for its outstanding food and service quality, the most popular item is "The Cochinillo Segoviano", a Spanish style roasted suckling pig dish that is served with the obligatory Plate Cutting Ceremony. Our slogan shouts out loud 'Nose To Tail Eating'.
