Had a great dinner experience at El Cerdo Changkat Bukit Bintang for a birthday celebration. Food is nice, ambience is great and the service from Grace who took care of our table is excellent. Thanks for a wonderful dinner!

Definitely the worst possible service. They didn’t bring our food together. There was a 20 minutes gap between our order. The food wasn’t delicious either.

Been 3 years since my last visit and the standards are still high. The Spanish way of curing, cooking and presentation may differ from other styles but it is unique the taste of the pork on the top of my tongue I can still feel...hours after the meal. Helpful and friendly staff. Food was cooked to perfection. My mother in-law 70th birthday bash was smashing . Literally plate smashing. Piglet was full of juicy crackling. Don't know when I will be back in these parts but again will be top of my list.well done guys.More

Esther was helpful in getting us a room for Father's day celebration. Free Heineken for the Dads. Grandkids loved the cutting of suckling pig # 79000+ with plate for good luck and smashing the plates. Great service too!.

I wasn't impressed with what I ordered. We had the pork shoulder steak. Meat was very chewy and the mash still had potato lumps in there!! It was so badly done. How could you screw up mashed potatoes? We also ordered the tiger prawn wrapped...in bacon and jamon croquetas. These appetisers were good but I wouldn't call this full star worthy.More

Just had a lovely birthday dinner celebration with my boy & my man! The sausage platter was so juicy and grilled to perfection. My BBQ soft bone ribs was so flavourful and I almost wanted to lick the whole plate clean. We ordered Fruity red...Sangria and really enjoyed it. Birthday boy got a complimentary Basque burnt cheesecake with 2 margarita and 1 orange juice on the side. We didn't expect such a generous dessert and thanks El Cerdo for a wonderful service. We will be back for more. Gracias!More
