We've been in KL for about 5 weeks and of all the places we have eaten, this would probably fall almost last on my list. Not to say it was terrible, because it wasn't - but it just didn't make me want to rush back for anything. We had four different tapas - salad with avocado, chirozo with bread, Spanish... More

Tapas really tasty and, as tapas go, good sized portions. Pinchos - make sure your beer is served really gelado! (ice-cold).

We have been to this restaurant several times, trying out the different items on their menu. Each time we have come away impressed. Try as we could, we just didn't find a mediocre dish! The restaurant isn't cheap, but makes up by providing generous portions. Highly recommended are the sardines and the Jamón ibérico. Superb!

We're there yesterday. The atmosphere is nice, but none of the tapas chosen stood out. Manchego, Ternera, Tortilla and Setas were not really Spanish style. Everything was a bit greasy and setas were simply mushrooms, not setas. The best deal of the night was Belgium Elephant beer, which I had not tried before.

Nice tapas bar with a lot to choose between and friendly staff. The dates with bacon and the patatas bravas with aioli was probably the favourites. Tried to order 5 things each (as that would be the recommended number of dishes at our local tapas place) but the waitress kindly advices us that it would be too much. We finished... More

Authentic but a little pricey, this joint offers delicious tapas, a good wine list and some serious cocktails. Try the ham and cheese platter over a bottle of Argentinian Malbec for the perfect sultry afternoon in Kuala Lumpur.

Need I say more? Food was good - tasty and surprisingly filling, but the draught beer was definitely watered down. Having said that, I think this is true for many of the drinking spots in the town centre. The next place we went to also had watered down beer. Obviously bottled beer is safer, but much more expensive...

I need to brag on @pinchostapasbar KL. We stopped by last night after I read a good review on Trip Advisor and it ended up being probably the best meal I've had so far in KL. From the outside, Pinchos isn't much to look at. It's a simple brick building; a bar crammed amongst a street of bars. However, Pinchos... More

Went to Pinchos last night for dinner around 20:00 without booking! It was a busy Friday night but they found us a table. Possibly the best tapas I've ever had, the food was pretty much spot on. Service was so faultless and will be visiting again for sure
