Description: In 2006 El Gato opened its doors and since then it became one of those 'ever-popular' restaurants. Inspired by the spirit of Spain we embrace a philosophy that connects Good Food and Mediterranean free style, resulting in an unpretentious eatery known for its quality food and friendly service that has become a favorite among locals and so many returning visitors.

“Food presentation and service fantastic!!!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We ate here after reading about it on trip advisor, the food was 1st class and so was the presentation of the food. We had the box meal at €25 for two people excellent choice. Also a great place to people watch and listen to the sea while eating your meal. We enjoyed it so much on our 1st day we have been back again last night would definitely recommend to anyone staying nearby.

“Top spot - great food”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Very handy walk from our hotel on the promenade.

We had several dishes to share that were fab. After seeing others with the degustation box, we wish we'd tried it also.

Staff friendly, location good, reasonable prices.
Would highly recommend.

Also, a great 'people watching' spot as mostly a 'pedestrian only' area.

Great location, great service and the mega brucheta is amazing.
Also try the "Lunch Box". Presentation is great. It's also a great people watching place to sit..

“Great location, great food too”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

10/10 for quality of food, be prepared to be surprised, you will pass 100 of look a like micro wave 7 euro joints then you will pass El Gato. GO In,,the food is great, all fresh and home made, not a freezer or microwave in site,

Wine, cocktails, starter main meal and dessert for 4 all for 80 euros, I am not doing it justice, it was great will go back before we go home on Friday (and I am a fussy so n so about food).

Try the gambas Pilpil, or the apple and blue cheese salads, or the Dutch apple pie, washed down with a stone cold Spanish drywhte..exquisite.

“Nice food with good ambience”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Had one lunch and one evening meal here during a recent visit. It is a tapas themed restaurant with a wide variety to choose from, but they also have mains like burgers etc. Location on the promenade offers a great view of the passers- by, and the service is friendly and efficient. Prices are good, our dinner meal was 38 Euro including one starter, two mains, ( curry and a burger) and one bottle of wine. Good value.
