Went with a bunch of friends and the staff weren't friendly and could do nothing to meet our simple requests. Food was good though. Over half of our party agreed the staff were rude. Very disappointing

This experience is so unusual for us that we'd very much like to know more. Please do contact me directly by phone or email and let me know when you were here and what went wrong, so that I can make sure it doesn't happen again. Best wishes, Phil More

Some reviewers comment on it being cramped. That sort of adds to the atmosphere and once you are seated it's fine. The music was good, service good, food is good as is the choice. Shame you can't book but that is probably a good policy here to ensure full tables. 4 of us enjoyed food, wine for our wives and... More

Went today during lunch, lovely ambiance and wonderful food. Not somewhere I would go for a quick lunch, it's all about the relaxing experience here. Would highly recommend it. Thank you.

The tapas were good, the atmosphere was friendly and vibrant, but it is very cramped. Worth a visit but not sure I would go back again.

This is my go-to restaurant, the food never fails, it's always busy (which is a positive as far as I'm concerned, along with all the other people that go here that aren't misery guts) and I've always had good service, which feels a little more personal than from the robots you get in most places. Only thing I would suggest... More

We have visited Los Gatos three times since the last review and these visits have been as good as previously. Especially on the one occasion when we visited as a group of 4 and really enjoyed the Lignum Negre organic red and the chocolate pudding is yummy. The best things about Los Gatos are the food, the wine, the staff... More

Remarkeably busy for a Monday has to be a good sign. It was. Food qulaity was well above what I have had in chain "Tapas" restaurants. Lots of dishes not seen before. Chicken livers superb, black pudding worth trying. All fresh and quick. Manzanilla and Rioja very good. Will be back,

I was taken here for my birthday...after hearing rave reviews I was super excited to try the menu. Such lovely Tapas choices, very authentic and everything was so tasty! The wines are also very nice and compliment the menu well. The thing that really makes this place, as well as the food, is the fantastic atmosphere. Always busy, in a... More

Came here for a business lunch half an hour early. I was made to feel very comfortable and had almost one on one service. The place does get busy with large groups so it would be better to book. Ordered approx 8 different Tapas between 2 which was more than enough. Wine Menu is perfectly Spanish and Exquisite. Keep an... 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.
