“Best restaurant in Torremolinos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

El Gato is set in an ideal setting overlooking the Mediterranean. It has outside seats for the sunny warm days and indoor seating too. Their infamous 'Tapas shelf' is amazing. Great for sharing and is also vege friendly as there are at least 4-5 vege friendly dishes on it. The blue cheese salad is to die for. It has to be the best salad I've had. Very friendly staff and great atmosphere. It will be my number one spot to go to next time I hit Spain.

“Great find !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

Looked up in Tripadvisor just before spending an impulsive week away. It did not disappoint . Good selection, great tapas, and the share evening tapas boxes for 25 euros worth it. House vino Blanca good.
Best reason for our stay -- only 40 metres from our hotel !!!

“Very good spaghetti”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Their spaghetti vas very good. My wife had the pesto spaghetti and I had the garlic and olive oil spaghetti and we both enjoy our meal. The prices are reasonable at 5 Euro for the spaghetti plus .70 euro if you want the Parmesan cheese which we had and it definitely added to the flavor. This with a bottle of wine for around 11 Euro made it and excellent meal.

The only negative was that there were cats roaming around and lying on the cushion seats. One even jumped on my lap. Gave it a four star instead of 5 because of the cats.

“simply great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Somehow we overlooked this restaurant last visit to Torremolinos, and it is a pity - the place appears to be a great restaurant with fresh tapas and delightful burgers. We returned twice just t try something different and everything was very delicious. The big corner sofa became our favorite, very comfy and nice to watch the world goes by..
