Wanted to eat tapas for lunch and was going to be in Swindon - Found Los Gatos with good reviews on google. Booked with a very friendly and helpful lady the night before. So glad we did - the place was very busy when we arrived! Quickly seen at the door and taken to our reserved table. Curteous and friendly... More

Have eaten here twice now for lunch and had 2 very different experiences. Our 1st visit was very good. We ordered 8 dishes and the waitress was suprised by the amount but when it arrived, it was not as much as the waitress had made out. The salmon toast was great and so was the prawns. The second visit was... More

Visited here one Saturday evening; very busy and lovely atmosphere. Had great gin and tonics while we waited for table. Staff very pleasant. Tapas was good but pricey for the size of portions and could be a little more adventurous with the dishes on offer. Cheese dishes disappointing; just pieces of cheese with a bit of chutney and chopped nuts.... More

So having spent loads of time in Spain visiting a large amount of tapas bars whilst there, this has to be one of the closest experiences available! No frills, no gimmicks, no fake "Spanish" theme to the decor. This place is oozing genuine Spanish character, the main bar is large and has plenty of seats for those who wish to... More

We hadn't been for a few months and noticed a few changes. Firstly the new gentleman (at a guess manager?) was brilliant, running the show with a big smile on his face, engaging with the customers and working darn hard behind the busy bar area. He's perfect! The owners go for all round high standards and this showed another great... More

Always a pleasure to visit this restaurant! The food is always great, as is the beer. I love to try a new Spanish beer each time I visit. Also, the breakfasts of Hot Chocolate and Churros are amazing!!!!

Went there with some colleagues for dinner, and loved the place: small but with character, good choice of tapas and fresh ingredients you can taste. Will definitely come back!

My fave restaurant in Wiltshire. OK, if I'm honest it lost a tiny bit of charm when they moved, but the plus size is it's easier to get a table in the bigger new location. Great food, wonderful staff and the drink list is comprehensive and varied. Expect to be rubbing elbows with fellow diners - this is a cosy... More

Three of us came in, hungry, after being refunded for chicken paninis offered at local arts centre with frozen solid middles. There had been a couple of hours between not getting a pre show snack and finding Los Gatos, so we were hungry. From the notice on the door saying words to the effect of 'we employ foreign staff and... More

Description
Who we are: We are a Spanish style TAPAS BAR. Independently owned and run, which relocated to larger premises in October 2014. This means we are a bar that serves tapas, not a restaurant. Because we are often busy and buzzing, we are not the ideal place for a quiet romantic night out, but we offer a warm welcome to all our and aim to restore you, whether you're in need of food, drink or company. What we do: All our food is prepared here from fresh, locally sourced or imported Spanish ingredients. Our extensive hot and cold tapas menu changes regularly and we list 6-8 daily specials. We have a range of Spanish wines, sherries, beers and spirits. We have some tables in the bar, which can be booked (max 8 people) at lunchtimes or evenings, except Friday and Saturday evenings, when it's first come, first served. Closed Monday lunchtime only, open 6 lunchtimes and 7 nights a week. On Sunday lunchtimes, we serve paella, as is the tradition in Spain, with a choice of mixed, seafood or vegetarian paellas. Advance booking for paella is essential.
