I have been a few times to Bodeguilla del Gato and returned for the food, and only the food. The service is frankly unfriendly, and heaven forbid you book a table and arrive before your friends - I had to convince them to pour me a glass of wine. We often feel hurried and in the way. Anyway, onto the... More

We had been here a few years ago and quite enjoyed it. It is generally a good idea to book (and don't leave it too late as you may end up squashed in by the loo!) but it was a Sunday evening in February and we got a nice table without any trouble. I agree with a previous reviewer -... More

The food was good, it was a bit packed as inside is very squeezed for space and the staff were rather stand offish. The atmosphere really made the location in my mind but would recommend as a place to pop in in the evening. Just be prepared to wait for a small amount of tables (if you aren't visiting in... More

Immediately welcomed by Carlos in a full restaurant! We didn't make reservations, though. We ordered five tapas and all of them were superb. The baked camembert cheese on cassis, the bull's tail, the marinated squid, the cordon blue, the esgarraet ... Can't wait to go back. The rosado 'Al Vent', recommended by the entertaining but not disturbing Carlos, perfectly accompanied... More

We went with friends who had visited many times and were not disappointed! Tasty tapas, salads, ribs and tostadas. Croquetas as a veggie favourite! Creamy mushroom. Friendly staff.

We went here on Monday the 21st of August. During the bike tour that day our guide told us that Orio was the best restaurant for tapas, but it was only pinchos (not what we were looking for). Luckily I had wifi in the restaurant and based on the Tripadvisor reviews we decided to go here. Unfortunately the restaurant opened... More

Inside table on a warm evening as the few outside spots taken. Had a selection of tapas and a gin and tonic or two! Friendly efficient staff, kept the place buzzing! Not haute cuisine but a lovely evening. Hidden away a touch, but worth finding if in area.

We had such an enjoyable evening of tapas and drinks here. The waiter was super nice and attentive and the food was great. We ordered ribs, fried squid, salmorejo, patatas bravas, and pimientos padrón.
