El Chato is a firm favourite of ours when we are in Los Alcazares and so this visit we took the parents along to show off the restaurant and they were not disappointed. We arrived early so a booking wasn't needed as the restaurant doesn't fill up until 9ish. We received a lovely welcome from the owner/manager who is extremely attentive and keen to make recommendations and even adapted one of the dishes on the menu when we requested some iberico ham to accompany it. The oxtail croquettes on the specials menu went down a treat with everyone at the table - highly recommend!
The restaurant can be described as traditional spanish with a fantastic tapas selection and very popular with the locals. This is a hidden gem away from the common restaurants on Coronation Street (the strip). Highly recommend venturing down to this restaurant for a traditional spanish meal out!
