Not sure why we picked a Spanish restaurant in the Czech Republic, but we were hungry and thought tapas would be just enough to tide us over until dinner. The orders are small but the Tapas Mixta (octopus, prawns, langoustine) tasted good...just fussy to have to peel there shrimp. The Filipino soup tasted more like Thai (coconut, mild curry flavor)...

Lovely terrace outside to the side of it, most pleasant. used by business people. Yes, the hams were still hanging inside the place. Friendly staff.

There are a huge number of restaurants in Plzen, though in my opinion only four warrant a try if you are visiting for a short stay. This is one of them. Good solid, reliable food at reasonable European prices and a fair wine selection to suit. All in all one to try whilst here.

We visit El Cid on two previous visits to Pilsen, but our latest trip was 7 years on. El Cid was just as we remembered, nothing much had changed. All seven of us chose one of the taster menus which were good. The selection catered for most tastes. Over all, the food wasn't quite as exceptional as we remembered, but... More

When I came I was ignored by staff so I took menu myself. Waitress was rude .When I was ready to order they didn't have things I wanted. They would only serve paella to two or more people and also didn't have glass of sangria for one person. I left and looked for better place

We enjoyed the outdoor dining, and the drinks. However, the food was mediocre. The location was convenient.

We found this restaurant during our walk through Pilsen. Only service what we've get was to have the menus. we we're waiting for 15 minutes if anyone will get our order. During that time waitress served all the other tables so very dissapointing.Staff even doesn't look very friendly and motivated to do their job. I would not recommend this venue... More

I have never had a problem in this restaurant-the food is great, staff is really nice and I have NEVER waited too long for the food. The prices are higher than in common restaurants in Pilsen-but the food worth it ;)
