Popped in for lunch unplanned on a Wednesday as the place had good reviews. Not disappointed. Others thought the same as though it was midweek - the place had nearly filled to 3/4 capacity. Ordered the black pudding, chickpeas and squid amongst others - all good. £12/pax altogether which was filling In summary: Good tapas - great bread - prompt... More

Late Friday afternoon/early evening continues to be a pleasurable experience thanks to Los Gatos. The mix of tapas dishes, especially the specials is very good, and the Lignum Negre organic red wine is very pleasant. Long may this continue.

Swindon is not famed for its great restaurants but this gem is one of the exceptions. It is what it says on the tin, a tapas bar. That said it does that well, sit at the bar and have a few drinks and plates of their lovely fresh cooked food or book a table (advisable towards the end of the... More

As per usual the welcome from Phil was warm and welcoming. The overall service was excellent. The menu was vast and indeed took a while for the four of us to establish what we wanted across the table. The drinks arrived quickly and food soon followed. The table was full and over flowing - we are ordered too much. However,... More

Lovely food! So well prepared. Interesting menu plus the daily specials. Very busy with a real buzz, all the food is delivered speedily. There is a great wine list too. Not to mention the gins....

Really enjoyed this tapas restaurant with my husband and family. The food was authentic and the portions generous. The drinks were fab too, gin and tonics served in balloon glasses with lovely garnish. My only critique would be that it was quite hard to get a drink once our food had arrived, the waiter was rushed off his feet. We... More

The restaurant was busy, which is always a good sign. The service was faultless, menu provided a wide variety of choices and the quality and quantity of the food were both superb. I will certainly be going back and would recommend a visit to anyone. Good idea to book because of its popularity.

A wide range of tapas dishes in a restaurant with a warm atmosphere. Service is pleasant and the food arrived very quickly. Paid £35 for two of us so not too pricey either. Recommend booking as it is very popular, especially on a Monday night when not a lot else is open in the area in the way of restaurants.

I went back to this Tapas bar after several years to see if it had improved from my first visit. Unfortunately it had not changed. When I entered the bar I was not greeted with a smile, but a frown. The owner seemed pre-occupied and he definitely displayed some attitude and when customers asked any questions, he seemed defensive. After... More

Phil S, Owner at Los Gatos, responded to this review

Well, perhaps it was good of you to give us another chance after writing your first review of Los Gatos almost 5 years ago, when you also complained you were hungry and went off to sate yourself with KFC. However, against all your hopes, we haven't changed. We're still a Tapas Bar. Perhaps you should take your own advice and... More

Description
Who we are: We are a Spanish style TAPAS BAR. Independently owned and run, which relocated to larger premises in October 2014. This means we are a bar that serves tapas, not a restaurant. Because we are often busy and buzzing, we are not the ideal place for a quiet romantic night out, but we offer a warm welcome to all our and aim to restore you, whether you're in need of food, drink or company. What we do: All our food is prepared here from fresh, locally sourced or imported Spanish ingredients. Our extensive hot and cold tapas menu changes regularly and we list 6-8 daily specials. We have a range of Spanish wines, sherries, beers and spirits. We have some tables in the bar, which can be booked (max 8 people) at lunchtimes or evenings, except Friday and Saturday evenings, when it's first come, first served. Closed Monday lunchtime only, open 6 lunchtimes and 7 nights a week. On Sunday lunchtimes, we serve paella, as is the tradition in Spain, with a choice of mixed, seafood or vegetarian paellas. Advance booking for paella is essential.
