Located at the outskirt of the commercial centre where not many good restaurants are found, this Spanish restaurant may be the best in town. All their dishes, ranging from tapas, main courses to paellas are of superb quality. The settings in the restaurant are comfortable and their staff are professional. Great value of money for their weekday lunch sets and weekend brunch.More
My husband and I have been wanting to try La Paloma for a little while, obviously restrictions and that have made it tricky. Also having eaten some mediocre tapas we were a bit hesitant at first, but we were feeling spontaneous and took the risk and we went and it was a risk that paid off greatly to our surprise. The food was very delicious, fresh and full of flavour. The atmosphere of the restaurant is relaxed enough to make you feel comfortable, but fancy and nice enough to feel like you are in a nice restaurant. We had many things, but I enjoyed the mussel croquettes and the beef cheek empandillas the most. Considering we ate a fair amount of tapas and had a few drinks, the food was very good value for money. The staff are friendly and the service was great, definitely will be back again soon.More
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
