Utterly poor, bad experience. We ordered wine and got no glasses. When we asked for them, one was dirty and the staff looked at us as if we were strange for asking for a clean one. We sent raw chicken back that the children got...but they then served them the exact same plate again, after microwaving it. We ordered different sorts of meat (4), the chicken and ox was quite good but the rest was horrible. The entrecote was barely eatable and the lamb we got were honestly just bones. When we questioned it the response was "it's baby lamb, maybe it's better where you come from". When we picked it up and showed them that there was actually no meat at it and offered to pay for all os the drinks but not the food that was bad, the response we got was "pay or we will call the police". We were shocked by the response but it almost sounded as if they were used to it, so we told them to call the police. We waited for almost an hour. We then asked them if they were coming or not, but the staff barely responded so we decided to not waste more of our time but to pay and leave. Stay far far away from this place!More

Got talked into a huge plate . Bad quality & high price. Can't understand why the world tolerates places like this. Don't go here!!

I arrived there and two different waiters tried to sell a big plate to me and my partner, we refused , they came to us table and try it again at least three times. We ordered some tapas and a meal but the meal arrived...first and completely horrible, the tapas arrived after and totally different that we had ordered, after that they clear started to avoid us because we are clearly up set and disappointed. Food terrible, service bad, and we felt completely disappointed without respect and commited from the waiters. We were very excited to know Los Gatos but the only experience we had were never more Los Gatos. The picture show that the food is completely raw , no attention for this food just because it one wasn't the plate that they would like to sell us .More

We went here last night after seeing a glowing review but honestly I am very confused by the positive reviews I have seen. We arrived and asked to be seated outside, they couldn't confirm when we would have a table but accommodated us shortly after...we arrived which was the only good thing about the visit. As soon as we sat down we were approached by a gruff waiter pushing a special platter for two on us without showing us menu and without asking what we wanted to drink. It took 3 requests for him to actually bring us a menu. We also had two other waiters with similar attitudes coming to the table and obviously not communicating with the others because they were asking us the same questions. The menu was strange as we were told the section labelled 'main courses' were the starters. They continued to try to insist we get this special platter for sharing and when we said we wanted something from the menu we were told the menu items weren't as good as the special. The mains we wanted weren't available so in the end we ordered something else and the fish arrived just on it's own covered in garlic and parsley with a sad bit of salad tucked under one end. I felt this was not very honest of them as when I asked how it was presented he pointed to another table who had gotten the same plate but they had a large platter with salad and other items included. We ordered some 'canapes' to start but these arrived after the main arrived. We got no bread, no olives - nothing to snack on while we waited as is common in most places here. The 'canapes' consisted of thick slices of French style bread so lightly toasted they didn't look toasted at all. Some of the toppings were grey or looked raw. We also received the wrong canapé. We tasted some of the food but it was terrible. I felt quite upset we were duped and couldn't even stomach trying to eat any more as the service was so awful. The waiters didn't check that we were happy with everything or if we needed anything else. When they brought items to the table they slapped them down hard on the table without any care. They didn't clean the dirty table before putting plates down. The cutlery was cheap and started to bend when I was trying to cut some of the rubbery fish. Only one drink arrived and they forgot mine, and it took another waiter to bring me my drink, which was watery flat beer. We left most of the food there and I asked for the bill. The waiter didn't even ask if everything was fine even though he saw how much food we left uneaten. Tourists beware - this is definitely not a place to eat in Malaga. Never again!!!More

Title sums it up. TErrible service from beginning to end. Waiters are to busy trying to socialize with women or smoke cigarettes to serve. The waiters were smoking just on the other side of the alley 5 feet away. We could not get refills on...drinks , we order 4 items from them menu and only received 2. We didn’t receive the other 2 after waiting a addition 30 min after we finished our first 2 items we just asked for the bill. Then waited a additional 15 min while our waiter was over talking to more women. Finally we got the bill and waited another addition 10 for someone to come with a credit card machine. The owner of this establishment should clean house on the serving staff. The food we did get was good so it’s a shame the service is so badMore

The staff cannot wait to get you seated then all they concentrate on is getting more people seated this means the service for the seated customers is totally ignored, walk on by, absolutely despicable behaviour,

The food here was good, but we waited a long time for waiters, so we were disappointed. What a pity.

We absolutely loved this restaurant, the food was amazing, we had the beef tenderloin and a selection of sea food and everything was super delicious. The waiter was very nice and fun and very helpful. I would also recommend the house sweet wine, in reasonable...quantities :-)More
