La Bodeguilla del Gato is a good authentic tapas place. No more, no less. Great pimientos de padron. Good cheese, jamon, etc. Enjoying Spain as it should be enjoyed.

We had a great meal here just now - hard to understand some of the criticisms from others! Nice atmosphere - we sat in the alley at the front - friendly & fairly quick service, lots of Spanish customers as well as a few tourists, & excellent value. Between the two of us, both fairly hungry, we had a good... More

A 'tapas bar' with spanish decoration but not spanish staff. It's very expensive, 6 croquettes around 6 euros, a few fries made like McDonalds deluxe fries they call 'patatas bravas' almost 5 euros... in summary we could have dinner in a restaurant for the same price. In addition we had to demand 3 times the same thing cause the waiter... More

.... as opposed to a tapas bar. Staff were charming and helpful and the food was fine. Tip - it gets really busy so if you don't want to sit at the three tables without reservations by the loo, book in good time, not half an hour before it opens, as we did.

Small, nasty and expensive "tostas"; service was just as bad: trying to be "cool", our server seemed more interested in showing off his style of dancing-like-ibiza-type-of-queen to some kind of electronic beat, than concentrating in getting our order right, which he didn't. Just a joint for uninformed tourists in a decor full of stereotypes of Spanish culture.

Located near the Plaza Negrita in El Carmen, the Bodeguilla del Gato was an excellent choice for a meal in a pleasant setting. Our server was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. A delicious plate of cheese, another of ibericos, some chorizo and two tasty salads – with very fresh ingredients - made for an excellent meal. Good wine... More

Best tapas I have ever had - a small local cosy place that is situated in the most picturesk square. The service is very good and speaks good english - they were very helpful the whole night and even had time for a jokes on a otherwise busy night. The place is rather small making it somewhat problematic for families... More

A great place for Tapas. Yes it appears in lots of guidebooks and so yes, it is busy and you do get tourists in here. However the food was all superb and the service prompt and friendly. Look a little further down the winelist and there are some great bottles on there too. What La Bodeguilla del Gato manages to... More
