“Fantastic food and service”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

What a lovely evening. We visited El Gato during our holiday with our two young girls. On walking in I was a bit unsure as we had to walk through the pub to get to the Restuarant. But once we were greeted by the friendly witty waitress we knew that this would be a good evening. The food was amazing. Very seldom does my hubby enjoy Restuarant food but he loved the chicken so much that he ate way too much. The prawns and calamari were delicious and though the trinchado sauce needed more wine, garlic and spice, the meat was melt in your mouth. We will definitely be back.

“Great Portuguese food”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Great food and great value. Their Portuguese chicken is always good and the prawn dishes are great. Staff very friendly and if you arrive with a crowd they are always accommodating and will move tables around to fit you all in.

“The food makes up for. ..”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

Service is slow and unfriendly. I don't like the atmosphere. The dining side has zero ambience and feels like an eating house tracked onto the side of a noisy smoky pub. BUT the food is good and well priced for big portions. The Peri Peri is some of the best I've had and I've had a few! Looking at Portuguese food in the area I rate the food here better than Quinta, bit the service and atmosphere really let this place down. Choices, choices. ..

“Back to its best”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

El Gato went through a bad patch late in 2013 and we took a break from visiting it. But gave it another try and am glad to see it is back to its best again
