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 Served every Sunday lunchtime (booking advisable,) 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 and all our tapas are also served at the bar. Closed Monday lunchtime only, open 7 nights a week.

Seriously good grub and great prices! Can't fault it.

I visited this restaurant for my birthday meal after finding out that somewhere I'd originally planned to go to wasn't open. They accommodated my husband and me at a moment's notice and were so helpful and polite. We had bread with oil and vinegar and some olives to start off with and then for our... read more

Delicious and fresh food teamed with a chilled yet buzzing atmosphere. They've got it right. Can't beat Los Gatos for Spanish food.

5 friends and I visited last week and enjoyed the evening. The menu is extensive and lots of choice for vegetarians. They had specials board as well as the regular menu. It was a Wed night and packed out so glad we'd booked. The food was lovely especially recommend the aubergine chips. The atmosphere was good although slightly too noisy... More

Have now visited Los Gatos several times over the last few months with friends and it never disappoints with the food and atmosphere. Unfortunately there are no reservations on a Saturday night but the wait is always worthwhile. Put your name on the list when you arrive order a drink, sit at the bar, if seats are available, be patient... More

Went to Los Gatos with a couple of friends. I did try to book but there was some confusion over the phone so despite a couple of calls I wasn't able to secure a table. We went anyway, and waited at the bar for a bit before a table became free. There was a bit of a wait for the... More

We read all the reviews and it sounded perfect so we visited. We were told we could not sit at a table for 4 because somebody else might want it later. We said we only want it for an hour and a half (this was 5pm!), but still were not allowed to sit down despite there being four tables empty... More

Thank you for trying to visit Los Gatos - we're sorry you didn't wait long enough to enjoy it. At around 5.00pm, the 2 of you arrived and headed straight for a table for 4. Our waiter approached you to explain that, while we don't take reservations at the weekend, we expected to be very busy so would you mind... More

We really enjoy our visits here as it seems friendly and offers good value for money food and drink, which we find delicious. It is good to see that there is now a proper waiting list system, especially on the weekend, as this was the only thing that previously let down the service. We definitely recommend this restaurant.

All can say wow! What an amazing place to eat in Swindon. Top food and wine. Top atmosphere and a great welcome. Why go anywhere else? I highly recommend the Prawns and Calamari tapas. Incredible taste.
