A very nice place segregated to 3 sections, bar, dine, and another one with TV so you can watch sports etc etc...Suitable for romantic dinners, family dining, business meetings, friend gathering. There are also private rooms.
Their specialty is the piglet, and the selling point is you get to participate in their tradition of smashing the plates. Size of other dishes are not big, but filling. Taste is EXCELLENT.
The restaurant is clean with very good ambiance. Not too noisy, not too loud. Price wise, you need to have a fat wallet.
What I love most about this place is actually not their food (although they're really good), but their beyond perfect service! James, Marlon and Cho, the 3 waiters/waitress did a fine job making our visit very enjoyable. Always smiling and joking, making us feel as though we're visiting a close friend in their home, instead of being served by a waiter.
I would definitely want to visit these "friends" again!

El Cerdo, Nose to Tail Eating... Porky Pig Beware! Nov 06, 2009
Porky Pig’s nightmare but my ultimate heaven… from nose to tail eating and yes, it’s all about pork! The restaurant is always full so make reservation in advance.
Their signature dish would probably be the suckling pig. One suckling pig could serve four. They do offer the option of half a suckling pig. The fun part of ordering this dish is that there is a story that comes with the dish as well as you get to make a wish and break the plate that was used to chop up the suckling pig to show how crispy is the skin and how tender is the meat.
Some ideas on the menu, dishes like Jamón Ibérico de Bellota el Pata Negra, Spanish Ham Platter, Pork Shoulder Steak, Jamón Serrano with Rock Melon, Crispy Bacon Knuckles, Grilled Roasted Pork Short Ribs, Hickory Smoke Pork Soft Ribs, Pork Chop and do ask if they have any specials that is not on the menu. They do of course serve some pastas and some other non-pork dish but it will defeat the purpose of being in this restaurant and not order something porky. The amuse-bouche is in the form of soup and you can always be sure it is flavoured with something porky in it.
Now the desserts, Werner’s Special, a concoction of fresh strawberries in mango sauce with chocolate mousse and wild raspberry sherbet & Andres Special “A dream in Chocolate”, chocoholics won’t be able to resist this, white chocolate ice cream, milk chocolate mouse, chocolate crumble and banana in passion fruit and pear in red wine. There is more desserts in the selection, just thought I would name two of their specials.
They have a wide variety of after dinner drinks as well as an extensive wine list.
