“Excellent Spanish restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2013

Stumbled upon here due to the curiosity of Spanish food, turned out it's fantastic, the waitresses were attentive and efficient in serving. The food consists of myriad tapas selections, and several pork menu, i opted for the Iberico pork loin which tasted devastatingly succulent!!! The Estrella Damm beer imported from Spain is also excellent.

Pinchos is truly recommended for either an enjoyable light tapas or heavy dinner with beer at night!

“Awesome ribs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2013

We went there for dinner as a group sometime last weekend. It's a rather cozy little resto/bar but a bit too cramped though if you need some private space. Most of the time, you will be hearing other people talk and you of course would need to talk louder. However, the service wasn't that bad. The waitresses are very quick in bringing whatever we wanted. If you do go there, you have to try the pork ribs. They are amazing! It's difficult to describe what they used as marination but it's just simply superb. Sangria is a must try to according to my friends. However, their tapas aren't that great. It's a fun place to hang out though overall.

“A nice tapas bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013 via mobile

My fiance and i came here on rave reviews on trip advisor... Either the tapas in Ireland is phenomenal or we're not easily impressed .. It was nice .. No complaints but "orgasmic" as one person described.. Meh ?!? I will say it was nice and the only place not to try and drag us in .. Which was nice .. and clean .. And 205 mr for 5tapas dishes a jug of beer and a mojito.. Nice .. 7/10

“Yummy tapas, reasonably priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

We love going out for dinner along Changkat Bukit Bintang, there is so much variety and eating outdoors and people watching is always fun. Last night we tried Pinchos for the first time and we were not disappointed.

Ordered 8 tapas dishes between 4 of us which was nice and filling. Service was prompt and they replenished water and bread regularly.

Highlights for us included the eggplant in a tomato sauce (yummy parmesan!), the pork and beef meatballs and the potatoes with garlic mayonnaise. Didn't try any drinks this time around as had just been at Twenty One earlier for cocktails, but will definitely be going back to Pinchos soon!

“Orgasmic Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2012

My girlfriend and I are huge foodies. We'll always hunt down the best places to eat whenever we travel.

We were in KL recently and decided to try out Pinchos. We are not exaggerating when we say it is one of the TOP 3 PLACES we have tried WORLDWIDE. (The other 2 being Diodos in Athens and 小杨生煎 in Beijing)

The highlight was the sauteed prawns dish in garlic and olive oil. It was to die for. If there is one dish you must try, it is the prawns. We loved the sauce so much, we asked for another dish of bread just to soak up every last drop of it.

We also had the pork loins with truffle oil, tenderloin skewers, chorizo stew which were excellent as well.

To top it all off, we had the chocolate with sea salt and olive oil on toast. Before the dessert, we were still debating if Pinchos would make our top 3 list. The dessert tipped the scales.

It was all very affordable (for tourists). Our meal of 4 dishes, dessert and 2 cocktails set us back RM170.

A must try if you're ever in KL!
