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.

Always a good experience - if you can get a table

It used to be the evenings where you'd struggle to get a table here, but now even the lunchtimes during the week are busy - and their lunchtime deal is a great reason to visit. A choice of 2 dishes from the menu, as well as bread and dipping oil for £7.50 - really good value for money, and... read more

Went to Los Gatos on Saturday evening with my husband I was already aware that it was going be busy and not being able to book makes it more difficult however we were told someone would call when our table was ready so we could go off for a drink which was very good. All dishes were fabulous and really... More

You cannot go wrong here if you like Spanish food. Everything about this tapas bar is great but the food in particular is what keeps you coming back.

Stopped in after work during the week and still had a hard time getting a table . Great location but very small inside so seating is at a premium . Service was great but the food was even better . I had the octopus , scallops , and drunken fish . Superb !!!! I would recommend this to everyone and... More

Been to the restaurant a few times now and not had a bad experience. The calamari is always excellent as I everything else. The menu is varied and there is something for all tastes. The service is nice and relaxed, you never feel rushed even when the restaurant is busy. You can't book on a Friday or Saturday night but... More

Everything from the moment we stepped inside was great, the staff were very friendly and quick with serving, the chef(s) were very professional and the food was great, possibly the best we have ever had in Swindon, seriously!

Visited on a busy Saturday night and were treated to a great meal in a friendly place with an atmosphere that transported you to a taverna in Spain or something similar. Would recommend this place to anyone who likes a great meal out without being to stuffy.

Great place to eat for lunch or dinner. Fresh cooked food, great beer. Service very good, but when busy can be a little longer. Went for a meal last Saturday, unable to book so us turned up but couldn't get a table. Not a problem went for a beer around the corner and the owner called me on my mobile... More

What a great little piece of Spain in Swindon! Being a cat lady I even like the name. We perched at the bar and chomped our way through bowls of honey coated aubergine, sweet sweet olives and ate our own body weight in the freshest soda bread dunked in chorizo oil. The downside is we were so busy chatting and... More
