Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 September 2017 via mobile

We passed by El Cocinero twice looking for a supermarket. With my wife being Peruvian we speak Spanish all the time and the name of the restaurant appealed to my wife. We stopped for lunch and it was amazing to say the least. Chef Arnaldo cooked for us dishes that brought back memories from our time in Spain were we lived for 4 years. Fabulous reception and attendance by the staff and superb 'pescado al horno', solomillo a la plancha, gambas al ajillo, pizza margarita for the kids. The fact that even our six y old son almost finished his first pizza completely in two years that we have lived here is testimony of the taste bud pleasing art Chef Arnaldo has presented to us . Definitely a place to visit and revisit over and over again.
Muchísimas gracias Chef Arnaldo !

Food was great, they had Spanish and some Italian food (pizza and pasta). We had the paella (30 minute wait) and the pizza, both were very authentic and excellent. Servings were for 3-4 people. Service was also excellent, the servers are attentive.

A fine dining place when you're in Nasugbu.. Paella is a must try and their home made pizzas, and the other entries are all delicious. In case you're traveling with a "balikbayan" this place will suite your palate. Quite pricey though if you're on a budget..
