Stumbled across this place by accident. Great food, friendly staff and pink parasols! Stones throw from the gay beach. Highly recommend for a relaxing drink (although, admittedly, we are here out of season). Will definitely be back.

Everything was superb! Very kind and friendly service, excellent food with vast variety to choose from altogether with the nice location just on the beach promenade. It was an amazing experience would go back anytime. Do recommend it for everybody.

Delicious food! Would recommend the hummus with chorizo and the shrimp deluxe - delicious! Lovely setting and wonderful service in a location (Torremolinos) where friendly service seems lacking. Truley a pleasure to dine here! Smiles and staff taking interest in the customers! Wonderful! Thankyou

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.
