The crimelord was detained as he was about to order dinner in the resort town of Fuengirola on August 12, following a five-month manhunt involving Spain’s top anti-fugitive police unit.

Now staff at the Limoncello eaterie, where cops swooped on Hutch, 58, as he sat with a female companion, say they have been inundated with tourists wanting their picture taken at the spot.

Head waiter Rodrigo told the Irish Mirror: “Ever since he was arrested Irish people have been ringing up and asking if they can book Gerry Hutch’s table.

“I suppose some people have weird humour. All of the Irish people who come in speak well of him and say he is like Robin Hood, he robbed the rich to help the poor.

“They all think he is innocent and are getting pictures taken at his table.

“The woman was very nice, I don’t know who she is but they seemed very happy together.

Hutch remained calm and composed when he was nicked under a European Arrest Warrant and taken handcuffed into the toilets at Limoncello to be searched for weapons.

He is facing charges over the Regency Hotel shooting in which David Byrne died. The main target in that attack was Daniel Kinahan who escaped serious injury.

Eighteen people died in the subsequent feud, most of them on the Hutch side. The Spanish authorities had been looking for the gangster in the Canaries, especially on Lanzarote which he regularly visited, but the search went cold last April.

The crime boss was then tracked to the coastal town of Fuengirola on the Costa de Sol, where the Spanish police said he had a network of support.
