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.

yummy tapas, mixed crowed, great atmosphere

I liked this place. Very much a breath of fresh air for Swindon. We arrived just before 8 on a Friday evening. Because (understandably) they don't take bookings at the weekends, we had to wait for well over an hour at the bar. There was a lovely holiday atmosphere and we decided the best solution... read more

The Food was fantastic, especially the Aubergine Chips & the croquettes with spinach and mushroom were yummy... the whole evening was fabulous. The music created the... More

Love this place - the staff are chatty and friendly and the food is freshly cooked and tastes amazing - the aubergine chips are a must try! And the estrella lager - yum! Always busy - best to book when you can.

Visited first time after hearing all the good reviews. As expected, the food was really, really nice, good size portions of Tapas. Definitely one of the best. The place itself is quite small and when full it feels a bit crowded- we had to shout to have the conversation. Also we waited a little bit for our drinks- I think... More

Lovely restaurant in Old Town Swindon serving the best tapas you can buy. Service was by the really friendly staff. The food is wonderful. Visited on a Tuesday lunchtime and the restaurant was full. Sometimes it's advisable to book.

My girlfriend and I spotted this restaurant on the way back to the hotel. We love tapas, so that was the first thing that attracted us to Los Gatos. Secondly the place was really busy at 6pm. The food here is mind blowingly good!! It is cooked to absolute perfection. Unlike a lot of tapas places in the UK, they... More
