The restaurant is rightly the focal point of Spanish experience but the food is only part of it, the smell of the place, the surroundings you dine in, the vibe, which you can feel from the minute you walk through the entrance, is all designed to put you at ease and to challenge your senses, resulting in a night that you will never forget and one that you will want to repeat again and again. The Mediterranian fusion offers a delicious menu with choices to suit every palate, it’s as close as food can get to theater!
The bread and olives that the waiter brought us while we waited for our first course was noteworthy; the fat olives had been seasoned with cloves, rosemary and orange zest, and the dark rye bread was obviously a point of pride.
El Gato restaurant is in Paseo Maritimo 1, Torremolinos (Malaga)
Next up was cream or Iberian Ham croquettes – and visitor needs to try these for the pure nostalgia. I couldn’t even put my finger on why they tasted so much like my childhood, but either way they’re incredibly good – crunchy and indulgent with a creamy center.
