A group of six of us went to this restaurant at the recommendation of someone who lives in Cabo. A couple of us ordered garlic shrimp, one ordered fried shrimp, two ordered garlic shrimp and I ordered the octopus. The food and service were both great. Paola, the daughter of the owner, waited on us and she was very accommodating.... More

The family went there to have lunch as highly recommended by one of the locals. The food was disappointing. The price is reasonable but the quality is not there.

I have reviewed El Torito many times because it is a must go to restaurant for me in Çabo. The food is always great and the service is equally great. If you are into the raw stuff like oysters, chocolate clams, ceviche, sashimi, aguachile, etc... You will love it. Their shrimp el Torito is out of this world as is... More

I think the title speaks for itself BUT I'll go into detail.. They start you of with a little gift of shrimp stock, it was cold, good, but cold. I asked for the governador tacos.. The shrimp was bland, the Marlin taco was good but I had asked for the fish taco grilled, it came breaded. Strike one, they took... More

Beware! They're only open until 6:30 pm (although they did serve us when we arrived at 7:00 pm). The whole fish was sold out by that time, unfortunately. Great, attentive service.

If you visited this place before you will notice that the quality of the food is going down. The staff is friendly, always with a smile, but the important thing is the food, not really good. Some dishes completely without flavor.

If you are willing to go just a few blocks off the gringo tourist path in Cabo San Lucas, you will find the best seafood restaurant in town, Mariscos El Torito. As a frequent visitor to Mexico, my restaurant plan is always to go where the locals go because there you will find the best food at the best prices.... More

Our friends who live in Todos Santos came down to meet us and brought us to Mariscos El Torito. The staff brought us menus with photos so we did not to know any Spanish. The seafood options all looked great and we were not disappointed. Some pictures online show their old location across the street; the new location has a... More
