As fans of Tapas we just had to try El Cerdo and we were not disappointed. Shown to an outside table quickly our waitress (Erica) was welcoming and friendly, drinks appeared and then ordered food, took her advice on how many to order and she was spot on. Tapas was excellent, tasty and good portion size, moved on to desserts... More

After 14 days of travelling around we ended up at this very nice restaurant serving pig form nose to tale. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We espacially appreciated the knowledge of our sommelier Jacob that showed great interest in finding a good wine for us.

Good experience to be experienced at least once in your lifetime with your loved ones. However, the price u pay is quite hefty and doesn't justify for a revisit.

Was so nice, when they offered more we gladly accepted. Main meal, I had the Guinness ribs - amazing! Must have been 7 ribs with... More

Description
Backed by 40 years of experience in various fine dining kitchens around the globe, Werner Kuhn set up El Cerdo KL, in the year 2005. The restaurant is well known to many as the No. 1 European style Pork Specialty eatery in Kuala Lumpur, focusing on traditional recipes. Having gathered many accolades for its outstanding food and service quality, the most popular item is "The Cochinillo Segoviano", a Spanish style roasted suckling pig dish that is served with the obligatory Plate Cutting Ceremony. Our slogan shouts out loud 'Nose To Tail Eating'.
