VOTED BEST TAPAS BAR IN ENGLAND, OCTOBER 2013... A traditional Spanish style TAPAS BAR. Independently owned and run, which relocated to larger premises in October 2014. All food is prepared here from fresh, locally sourced or imported Spanish ingredients. Extensive hot and cold tapas menu changes regularly. Great range of Spanish wines, sherries, beers and spirits. Traditional paella Sunday lunch first Sunday each month. 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) but we are not a restaurant! Closed Mondays.

It's just as good as the old place

Glad to say that Los Gatos hasn't lost any of it charm or quality for moving round the corner. I've Been a regular for 9 yrs (is it really that long) and it just gets better each year.

I have visited Los gatos many times, it's in the heart of old town, run by local old town restranteers, the service is friendly and helpful, the choice of dishes on the menu is in spanish but helpfully translated in english, my favourite being the chiken livers in delicious creamy sauce, and aubergine frittes, then moving on to desserts the...

Loved the quality of the food and wine. Even though it was busy they still kept on top of their service and the move to the bigger location is brilliant. Great selection for vegetarians and I can not wait for my next visit.

It is a fine place to have a few tapas, to go out with friends for a drink. the food quantities are small (for priced tapas) and sometimes not very good (too spicy). What makes the difference is the overall ambiance and the empathetic, helpful and very nice staff. The Rioja and San Miguel also help!

I visited with a business associate and we shared 6 tapas dishes. These were all very tasty and service was good. It was good value for money and the tapas bar was not too busy so we were able to have a good catch up.

We are regulars since opening. The whole team at Los Gatos are individually excellent and collectively superb! Food is amazing and has always impressed. Special mention for the olives. They are marinaded on site and set the tone for an authentic and quite wonderful tapas meal. Thanks, Los Gatos team :-) Phil and Sue

The superb food stole the show again. This isn't very good it is fan-blimming-tastic! Every dish we chose was made with high quality ingredients lovingly prepared. So many tasty dishes on the menu it's a hard job to decide as they all sound wonderful. Specials boards offers some interesting dishes too. The two waitresses were very helpful & assisted me...

Went for dinner with friends on Wednesday night. Loved the atmosphere, and the food and wine came quickly and tasted fabulous. This is the only tapas place to go in Swindon, forget any others.
