“fantástico”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

Don't be put off by the photo's of the dishes out side the restaurant like every other place, El Toro serves quality food. We ate four times here during our weeks stay and the food was great every time. Tried the meat and fish(tuna steak) and all dishes had wonderful accompanying sauces and nicely presented.
Staff all friendly and let you enjoy your meal in peace,not hovering over your table all the time!. We sat every evening by the window overlooking the beach.
This is a great place for families and couples(candles lit on the table)
Complimentary liquor and lolipops with your bill and you wont be gulping when you see the price!

“We went again”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Good service and a comprehensive menu. Some tables have a good view over the beach. Small and fairly intimate. Good quality food and pleasant atmosphere.

“Huge Fillet Steaks!”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

I really enjoyed this place. Waiter was very friendly. Canarian mojo spuds were amazing. Sardines for lunch were fresh and v tasty. Best of all, trip down memory lane for me was Tournedo Rossini (spellcheck) and chips. The fillet steak was about twice as big as anything I had been served before. It was delicious but alas after the spuds starter, I couldn't finish it. Unheard of for me! I will definitely go back. Book a table by the window at sunset and go have a smaller starter. Yum!

“Great fun”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

Had several meals here over the New Year and all were great. We ate mostly on the faro side, watching the world go by. The menu has something for everyone, the quality is excellent, service is quick and friendly and the prices are very reasonable. I had a leg of lamb of New Years Eve, the whole leg, amazing! The staff are professional, not pushy at all and enjoy their work. We ate elsewhere several times but nothing matched El Toro. It looks at bit basic but that's deceptive, it's really nice.
