The place serves spanish cuisine. The specialty is the roast piglet. It has become a KL institution for this particular dish. We were a table of four for dinner. Waiters were well trained and responsive. We had a great night of good food and wine.

Quite surprised to find the place full (but not packed) on a Monday night, mostly with Chinese. Never felt like going there in 3 years I have been in KL. But the food was good and so was the service. Spanish wine was also decent....More

Hello, we are traveling to KL to celebrate my husband's 40th Bday in about a month's time, I am sure he will love this restaurant, I am just wondering if you will be willing to help me with a little surprise for him, maybe a little cake with some candles to blow and some balloons or something to decorate the table. if you do, could you please contact me or let me know the options for it and how much will that cost me? Thanks in advance for all your help :)

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'.
