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!

The atmosphere is buzzing with conversation and everyone is clearly having a brilliant night out. Yes, it's busy and it isn't always possible to get the perfect table at the time you want it. That's because this is simply a wonderful restaurant that works very hard indeed to give their customers a really good time. There is a very good... More

6 of us went for a friends birthday and due to the not being able to book on a Friday or Saturday arrived at 6 to wait for a free table. Were assured we'd have a table away from the cold door, just as a suitable table became free, a group of 7 people arrived and we were the informed... More

We'll be sorry to loose you - especialy since you felt so highly of us in your previous review. We do our best to accommodate everyone on Friday and Saturday evenings when we are at our busiest. Sorry that we couldn't give you your preferred table on this occasion. More

after waiting far to long for average food we were very unhappy and vowed never to return. there is a new place in wootton basset that weve been to and is fast gaining a reputation as the best tapas bar around. beter food and no waiting around. we will be going back there in future.

The food is perfect!! You have the best Chef! Regarding the other staff,it's sad some people ruin with their feet what others build with their hands and so much effort!!! Anyway,just needed one lesson,I won't return. By the way,next time staff wants to speak in their native language,be aware that the clients can also speak the same language!! La comida... More

Loving the newer larger Los Gatos. If you are like us & prefer to sit and eat at the bar the additional bar space means we can usually get a spot if we time it right. Great selection of tapas (as always) and the staff are friendly & welcoming. I love the fresh fish as the weekend & there are... More

As a regular customer, I have to say that I love the new venue. At first I thought it would spoil the atmosphere but it didn't. I adore the food, the service is super and the ambiance has the most amazing buzz about it. Within the last week I had the pleasure of having dinner at Los Gatos 3 times,... More

Had lovely Tapas lunch. Felt we were on our holidays. Hot and tasty good selection of tapas. Nice wine and finished with good Spanish brandy. Cheaper than an Easter break.

Having visited Los Gatos on many occasions, both in the previous location in Wood Street and the larger premises on Devizes Road I can heartily recommend a visit. I would, however, recommend booking due to it's popularity. Every ingredient from the complimentary olives onwards appears to have been sourced with pride and discernment to offer the most authentic tapas experience... More

Los Gatos has always been spot on during the evening, but they've upped their lunchtime game too. A selection of 8 dishes available on the menu, and you can select any 2 for £7, and you also get bread and dipping oils including in the price. Swift service too, if you're on a timescale for lunch. Ideal for local businesses.
