Our second visit to El Gato Negro and it continues to exceed expectations for their amazing food! We sat at the chefs table and not only enjoyed eating but also enjoyed watching the food be prepared. Would highly recommend a visit.

Amazing food - probably the best tapas we've ever eaten. Quite pricey but this was reflected in the quality.

Great food and drink, lovely staff, and a wonderful table on the sun terrace. Perfect! Lamb skewers and Tiger prawns were particularly excellent.
