I really really hate the jam in Jalan Bukit Bintang but for the food served here, i don't mind going through it.

The place is not that easy to look for from inside Fahrenheit 88 mall (former KL Plaza), it'll be a lot easier to find from the outside for it's located on a sub-lot. Just go to the side (in between Lot 10 mall) and you'll see the restaurant's signage, though at night the signage doesn't seem to be lit up.

Had their meat tapas, Moussaka and seafood marinara which was superb. I particularly LOVE the garlic shrimp tapas.
Ordered the ravioli & Paella but didn't quite like it. The pasta was overcooked and not sure if Paella's meant to be soggy like that but it was. And their chocolate cake Torta de-chocolate was a bit sweet and dry.
Their creme brulee & tiramisu on the other hand is so creamy and delicious. Didn't feel pasty or sandy like some other places. Overall the food is worth going through the Bukit Bintang jam.

Note:
i was told that they're moving to Solaris Mont Kiara, i think somewhere around late March.

It wasn't busy this evening, which surprised me at christmas. The menu offered many choices of Greeq, Italian, Spanish and some other Mediterranean dishes. We had some tapas for starter. The olives were very fresh and well marinated, tzaziki and fried mushrooms were also excellent. The pasta had a good amount of sauce on it and the pizza was also nice. Only the lime juice I didn't really like, as it tasted a little to sweet for me as well as a bit salty (?)
But overall excellent, very fresh food and very nice staff! So, get in de street between Lot10 and Fahrenheit (between the parking decks) and look up.. Location is a little bit hard to notice but it's well worth going off the busy street for this nice restaurant!

We spent several weeks in Kuala Lumpur on assignment and a local colleague took us to Moussandra for a relaxed low key dinner. The restaurant is unpretentious, on the 2nd floor on a side street off Jalan Bukit Bintang, there is a white awning and a simple sign to note its location. It is across from KL Plaza, and 2 blocks away from the Westin and Marriott hotels. It has a warm red, rustic dining room with oil painings to decorate the room, and there are large French windows that provide a nice view of the trees outside. It is a little bit of the real Mediterranean in the middle of KL.

The food is quite delicious, each tapa was perfectly prepared, and all the pasta dishes were well made and served piping hot. The owner is welcoming and made good suggestions. Two tapas we chose were not available and his suggestions for substitutions were very good. The service was good and unrushed. They plan to move locations in February 2013 because of a lack of foot traffic there (although I think that better signage and advertising would resolve this).

We enjoyed ourselves very much and returned for dinner the following week.

Had their set lunch which was great - nice food (loved the mushroom soup), good portions & too-die-for creme brulee (crispy burnt sugar in a little plate so you're not overwhelmed). The price was reasonable but what I loved the most was the place, cozy, homey - the atmosphere was really nice. It was lunch on a workday but I felt like I was away on holiday. Nice!!!
