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.

“simply great experience”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

Somehow we overlooked this restaurant last visit to Torremolinos, and it is a pity - the place appears to be a great restaurant with fresh tapas and delightful burgers. We returned twice just t try something different and everything was very delicious. The big corner sofa became our favorite, very comfy and nice to watch the world goes by..

“dont bother if you like proper tappas and decent service.the other restaurants in Torre are much better .”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

We have just had a week holiday in Torre. we picked the names of supposed best restaurants from Tryp Adviser before we went. El Gato came up with very good reviews. What a dissapointment. Tapas were nothing like Spanish tapas. The service was not very good and a little sulky. I think they are catering for tourists who are not keen on authentic food.We loved Torre and the food in other places was excelent. Wont bother with this place again.

“Best Beach Bar/Restaurant”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

This little gem of a bar is easily the best on the costa del sol.From the second you arrive you are greeted with a warm welcome from the young friendly staff and have a choice of different seating options.The new tapas menu is fantastic and can be washed down with lovely local wines.The service extends to the adjoining beach area where they will bring you drinks and snacks right to your sun bed. Keep up the good work boys! Looking forward to my next visit there already.

Just around the rock from Carihuela is this beautiful decorated restaurant on the beach. The service was as warm and welcomming as their colourful lights. We choose their special menu. Several breads with homemade tomatosauce, salad tot choose, tapasbox with 12 tapas and weet tapas as desert afterwards Willy cover. With Evry dish we had an special wine, from Cava till Malaga dulce. It was a great Evening out! Price only 30 euro's a person. Best price /quality we had in a long time. Wish i had found thuis place before, but thanks tot tripadvisor, we did.

“Surprise Find”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

What a good little restaurant close to the headland in Torremolinos. We had a really good lunch, which unfortunately left no room for their delicious apple cake, so we had to go back the next day to sample this delicious sweet. The tapas boxes look really interesting and will definitely try them on our next visit. A pleasant atmosphere with good service.
