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.

We previously visited her a couple of times last summer so were keen to get back. It did not disappoint. Our staple is the mega bruschetta and ham board!! we then sampled the couple of prawn dishes they had and finally for main course, chicken curry and a burger. All very nice and decently priced too. We will be back in the summer.

After a walk along the paseo from La Carihuela we spotted this bar which seemed popular and with a good view of the sea. We had a drink and then decided to stay on for a meal. What a good decision. We enjoy the typical Spanish food but it can be a bit heavy so to see a lighter,though just as tasty, menu was a delight. The first night I had a lovely chicken and bacon salad while my husband had cod with a brandy sauce and rice. It doesn't sound very light but it was and it was delicious. Whilst we were there we saw lots of people try the tapas box. This was a clever contraption carrying 12 different 'tapa' enough for 2 people to try each one. We had to return to try them! Again delicious and a dessert one just rounded off the evening. The service was great, very friendly and just the right amount of attentiveness. We certainly recommend El Gato Lounge.

We had a very pleasant surprise when we more or less accidentally sat down at this restaurant for a bite. The view is great, that's why we came, but the service was also extremely friendly and the food, we got two tapas boxes and a today's menu, a lot, but really a lot, better than one would expect in one of the most touristy spots of Torremolinos. Fresh, well prepared, original, tasty.
