El Cid has never disappointed us. They have maintained their atmosphere and quality of food for 25 years. We enjoyed the guitar player who came to our table. It's our go-to restaurant for special occasions.

Great food. Good service. We ordered 9 tapas, a paella and desserts. They have a great list of tapas to choose from. The atmosphere is good but a bit too noisy for me.

Price is OK. Foods are not that typical but can be accepted. The environment is good for chatting with friend. Would like to mention that it is good for the singers sing alone somewhere in the restaurant instead of singing in front of you. You don't need to be bothered by the singer.

Great atmosphere. Good food. Slightly pricey now, hence a 5 and not a 6. The tapas on the main menu have fewer choices than before, but their 25th anniversary tapas menu brought back all the ones that El Cid was famous for.

Happy atmosphere, good services and food. However, the minor deduction for the score is that the table arranged was not so good that we couldn't watch the flamingo dance.

Food delicious, wine taste good; the reserved seat not so good, located in the dark narrow corridor, too close to other table, too easy to listen to others talk, prefer other area indoor.

Good food as always, but atmosphere can be a little noisy for relaxed conversation. Squid in ink, potatas bravas, and chorizo with apple are particularly excellent.

Always good, decent food and a pleasant atmosphere. Service can be a little variable. One of the most comfortable places for tapas in Hong Kong.

Convinent booking system, it is easy to reserve the table without making a call. Hope more restaurants would join this booking system. Really good job!
