We had an amazing meal here! The food is all homemade and wonderfully authentic! I could not recommend this place more highly. The ambience is cool, quirky, and fun! The owner is extremely friendly and helpful! When you come to the Island you must come here! Love it!

Wow! We are happy we found El Torito! We went there everyday once we discovered it. It’s not hard to miss since it’s off Avenida Rueda Medina on the street where the golf cart is on the rooftop. My favorites are the chicken tinga tacos and the frijoles. Everything they make here is delicious. Ricardo and Claudia are such amazing people. It was so nice chatting with them and they made us feel at home in their wonderful little taqueria. I can’t wait to go back to Isla. I know where our first stop will be!

Loved the tacos so much, I came back a second time to try different ones! The owner, Ricardo, is super friendly and really wants the customers to feel at home and enjoy the tacos, which are family recipes. Tortillas are handmade and they also make a delicious peanut cocktail called Torito. Definitely recommend this place if you're looking for some authentic Mexican tacos.

We LOVE this taco place!! Amazing authentic taco recipies that you cant find at a standard taco restuarant, and the owners are so so lovely! We ate here at least once a day and sometimes twice! Would 100% recommend, so cheap aswell!

Hand made tortillas
They use the black corn, so the tortillas are kind of blue
They make traditional dishes from central Mexico and Veracruz and they are cooking their grand mothers recipies
Also they make a traditional drink called Torito. You have to eat this amazing food. I recomand this great resterant
