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.

“Wow and amazing!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

I had the pleasure of eating here twice during my visit to Torremolinos and wow! From the service, the friendly waiters, and the owners who clearly love what they do. It is not often you an walk into a restaurant and instantly feel that you are not only at home, but welcome to stay, drink coffee and linger for as along as you like without feeling pressured to leave.

One strong suggestion - have the salad with Brie and strawberries. OMG this is a religious experience.

“Lovely staff... Lovely food...”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

Though the place is not too big, they run a good business and staff very friendly. We dined here a few evenings during our stay and liked it very much. I also admire that they are animal friendly. Some evening entertainment might be something they should consider adding to liven the place up. But keep up the good work guys and thank you...

“Exceptional tapas and fruity sangria ”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

They do take 'cards' as payment, everything was wonderfully presented and a good mix of flavours, the only thing that let the experience down was the 'packet' Serrano ham. It is so much nicer freshly cut off the bone than the samples served to us tonight. Our favourite tapas had to be the prawn to be dipped into the sweet chilly sauce ;)

“Amazing gem of a place”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

We stumbled across this place on a weeks holiday in Spain in June. We were out for a morning walk and popped in for a coffee. Lovely setting and extremely attentive staff. We decided that we would like to go back on an evening and asked to look at the evening menu, it was fantastic.

We returned two days later and sat and had a bottle of wine and a selection of tapas. Highly recommended, so much so we are returning in August and can't wait to go back
