It’s my first visit to La Paloma. I didn’t expect much. Our meal turned out to be very enjoyable.
My friend and I took the Restaurant Week dinner menu (HK$438 per person). There’s a lot of food. All dishes were delicious. I particularly liked:
- Iberico ham croquette
- garlic and chilli prawn
- slow roasted suckling pig with Brussels sprouts and mushrooms
- squid ink paella.
The food, especially the paella which we couldn’t finish, came in substantial portions. We’re both very full in the end. Considering the food quantity and quality, the menu offered excellent value for money.
The service was commendable. Chef Alex Fargas (previously at Fofo by El Willy which is now closed) was very friendly. He came to say thanks and ask our comments on the food.
I only gave 4 stars because:
- It’s very noisy in the restaurant.
- Our table was in a corner near the kitchen. There wasn’t enough air-conditioning.
- Some of the staff didn’t wear their face masks properly (i.e. with the nose exposed).
However, it’s worth coming back for the good food alone.More
...and nearly everything about it would be worth 5* were it not for the fact that several of the dishes were far too salty, almost like they had been covered in it. However, I hope to visit again because several of the dishes, such as the suckling pig and the stuffed octopuses, were extraordinarily good. Lovely space too and the staff were fantastic, even allowing us to remain long after our time had finished to polish the last of the free-flow drinks.More
Very nice atmosphere. We went for Sunday Brunch and free flow drinks. Very generous portions with deliciousness. Reminds me of Barcelona. Sangria was really amazing. Friendly and attentive service. Good for friends gathering as well.More
Have had the pleasure of dining at La Paloma a few times now and each time it's been an excellent evening. The food is delicious and beautifully presented every time. The chefs are clearly passionate about their craft and it shows in the food. Every team member that interacted with us was warm, friendly and highly knowledgable about the menu and able to make excellent recommendations to us. Will definitely be back again soon.More
La Paloma really gives you ✨the feeling✨. The atmosphere is so vibrant and the staff are very friendly. We went on a Sunday so they were cooking a huuuge paella that brought me back to Spain as soon as I saw it! All the food was wonderful but my favourite was the tuna tartare 😍 Also one thing I MUST mention, I’ve tried a lot of churros in my life but these were INCREDIBLE! The chocolate that they use is clearly of very high quality and it honestly makes such a change from other places that use low quality chocolate and it completely ruins the dish. Will 1000% be coming back here again to try the a la carte menu!!More
