    Once in a while is fine. The suckling piggy is really oily for me. But the lamb was good! :) plus point for the birthday service ;)

    Try the bacon roll and the twin rice. The half pig portion actually is good up to 6 person

    Paella was too wet and the shrimp that was served with it was mushy and not fresh at all. Being a seafood paella that almost cost RM90, certainly expected better. Would not recommend it at all

    It's been a while since I came here and the previous experience was good. However this time the ribs were dry and the pork knuckle was bloody at the core which was disturbing. We had diarrhea after:(

    It's well known for the pork dishes. Apparently their Spanish whole roasted baby lamb leg is awesome too!! Juicy meat with minimal "lamb smell". Fantastic!

    Tapas&paella. Baby back ribs too chunky, not dainty at all

    Piglet and all things pork, gorgeous (but ask for the salad to be undressed)

    The food was mostly a hit or miss. Roasted piglet was great but the sangria was a disappointment. Service was excellent!

    If you're not sure what to order, ask for recommendations. The staff will stop you if you've ordered too much

    If you're sharing the pork knuckle between 2, please do bother to order starters. Massive portions

    Having language barrier with the waiters, almost bang my head on the wall trying to communicate with english.

  • Danial

    Good service! Nothing special about the food!!! Why spare ribs are oily? Do they marinated in butter or oil?!!

    Danial · May 13, 2014
  • Larissa T.

    If u like parma ham with melon, u'll be totally blown away with the iberico ham with melon coz it's way better! The pork shoulder is also a must try!
