Amazing food always but feels a little canteen style. The lighting is far too high, would be lovely if dimmed. With no Ac last week was just unbearably hot due to being rammed. Food deserves a 5star for me but wish it could be more spacious & less lit!

Fantastic place, great atmosphere. Really have to book if you want a table, but if you wait long enough and drink plenty of there lovely large G&T's it takes no time at all, or you can eat at the bar. Love this place!

I found this tapas bar very expensive for what you get! Small portions and not great quality food. I guess this restaurant would be OK for a light snack before heading out to town, but my friends and I won't be visiting again!

Food is always nice, I've never had a bad meal in there. The atmosphere is also good as it's usually quite busy. It can be hard to get a table, but in my view that shows how well regarded it Lovely place, helpful and polite staff, I couldn't ask for more.

What a great find! We initially only chose this place because it served food from 5.30 and we had a train to catch, but when it started to fill up we wanted to stay all evening. The staff are friendly and helpful explaining dishes and drinks to compliment each other. We shared 5 tapas and wine between two which didn't... More

What a great way to spend a couple of hours. Easy cheap parking nearby. Superb food. Like the cold draught beer too. Garlic chilli prawns were superb as were the clams. My only suggestion for improvement would be to chill the beer glasses like they do in Spain!

A very welcoming, genuine tapas bar with great service, friendly staff, interesting and delicious tapas and a lovely mix of customers. A real find on a drizzly day in Swindon.

Just because you can't book at weekends, doesn't mean you can't come! First of all we have 40 seats at tables and another 18 at the bar which are yours for the taking, even without a booking - rare for a weekend! Then when they're full, we have an extremely efficient waiting list system. If there's room at Los Gatos... More

Fantastic place to eat and drink, really vibrant atmosphere, unexpected buzz for a Thursday night. Plenty of people just hanging around having a drink but also queues for tables. We booked in advance and had a great table by the window. Waiting staff were friendly and polite, great service especially from the young French guy (sorry, didn't get your name!).... More

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.
