Los Gatos has a great ambience. Staff are always pleasant and helpful and food is always tasty. Recommendations are the black rice with scallops and hake. Husband loves the Spanish omelette. Has it every time we visit. House wine is always very good too! Great place for informal dining.

We visited Los Gatos two weeks in a row for an after work meal before heading home and were lucky the first week as serving food started at 5.30, but 6.00 the second week so more drinking time. The tapas was all very tasty and I really enjoyed the organic red wine, both weeks. At about £36 for a healthy... More

Been several times and have enjoyed every visit. This place is always busy , even though they have moved to bigger premises I still think they need a bigger place as they are always packed, a testament to the food. The food is varied,fresh,vibrant and very yummy. recommend you book in advance.

Went on Saturday lunchtime and enjoyed the visit. Staff friendly and food really tasty, enjoyed the variety and thought the price was very good. Only slight complaint was that due to people waiting, it felt we were rushed a bit, it could have been just our imagination though its what we both felt. I would recommend though but you may...

I went here last month with my wife & some friends. Having not been for tapas in England before I was unsure as what to expect but the service was excellent from start to finish & the food was very good. A huge variety & everything was cooked perfectly. If you want tapas in Swindon then it is the place... More

We've been to Los Gatos so many times and the food has always been delicious. The staff are always friendly and service is brilliant. I can't understand how someone can write a bad review, it's the best place to go in Swindon!

Description
Who we are: We are a Spanish style TAPAS BAR. Independently owned and run, which relocated to larger premises in October 2014. This means we are a bar that serves tapas, not a restaurant. Because we are often busy and buzzing, we are not the ideal place for a quiet romantic night out, but we offer a warm welcome to all our and aim to restore you, whether you're in need of food, drink or company. What we do: All our food is prepared here from fresh, locally sourced or imported Spanish ingredients. Our extensive hot and cold tapas menu changes regularly and we list 6-8 daily specials. We have a range of Spanish wines, sherries, beers and spirits. 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. Closed Monday lunchtime only, open 6 lunchtimes and 7 nights a week. On Sunday lunchtimes, we serve paella, as is the tradition in Spain, with a choice of mixed, seafood or vegetarian paellas. Advance booking for paella is essential.
