Located in KL Plaza, you can either enter from the inside, or the outside. Coming from Lot 10 Shopping Centre's direction, turn right into the lane once you passed by L'Opera on your right.

Quaint, old-school (Its in its 12th year of operation) and "off the beaten track"... Moussandra is quite the gem!

Spicy clams (RM$18) - The gravy was perfect with the side-order of sliced, and warmly toasted (Perfect! C agrees) baguette (RM$5).

Beef meatballs (RM$13) - Decent, again the gravy was better then the meatball!

Spanish omelette (Tortilla de patatas, RM$8) - I miss Madrid! So much better in Spain..

Garlic prawns (RM$19) - I always enjoy this dish!

Hummus, RM$9, with pitta bread. Remember Zohan :-)

P really liked this, had the last drop of Chicken Liver Pate (RM$15)!

Paella Valencia, RM$38. Quite perfect, but I wish the paella rice was more "al dente". So flavoursome, delicious!

Alla Puttanesca, RM$26 - Deeeeelicious, but once again the spaghetti wasn't al dente/firm enough!
Did you know ... From Yahoo.com, Putta means whore. Unlike the English word, "puta" is a vulgar word - not to be used in "mixed company" in Spanish. There are congnates in most Romance languages e.g., French "putan", Italian "putana".

Established in 1996, Moussandra serves authentic Greek, Spanish and Italian cuisine in a rustic and cosy ambiance. We are proud to be the oldest Mediterranean and tapas restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. A proven favourite of both locals and visitors to Kuala Lumpur, Moussandra is situated in the heart of Kuala Lumpur but tucked away in a quiet spot of the prestigious shopping mall - KL Plaza, a perfect hideaway from the hustle bustle of Bukit Bintang.
