“BEST FISH TACOS EVER!!!”
Review of El Grotto

El Grotto
Ranked #16 of 60 Restaurants in Scarborough
Description: El Grotto celebrates the rich and vibrant drinking culture of Mexico, offering only sustainably sourced agave spirits which benefit and protect the villages, farms and future of the agave plant. Paired with locally sourced ingredients for our contemporary take on traditional Mexican cuisine, independently owned craft beers on the pour, a cocktail program to rival the finest shakers in the country and a regular bill of rotating local national and international artists. A cantina, a taqueria, a cocktail bar and a live music hub all rolled up in one big tortilla.

By far the best Mexican bar. Cannot rate the food, staff and venue high enough. Fish tacos are a MUST order.

Called in for a few quiet drinks and found the service was great with warm and friendly staff. Hung around for a while until a band started - and so to, the crowd. Must be a local hang out and very popular.

Just looking for a few drinks with friends on a Sunday, great spot. Ladies had a few cocktails and we sampled the cerveza. Very busy so get in early. Staff at the door were very friendly, which is always a good sign!
We will be back

Went to El Grotto for lunch on Sunday, we spent $50 on food for 2 people and the servings were so small we ended up buying a kebab from Peters afterwards!!
