Bacon Sandwich and Coffee

We've been going to El Toro for a while, mainly for sandwiches and coffee. Everything is very reasonably priced and the sandwiches are quite different to the 'run of the mill' ones. We recently had a bacon sandwich and asked the waitress not to put butter on it. When it came it had been drizzled... read more

We went to El Toro for a girly night out after work. It was a bad night and the weather was terrible. The bar was almost empty. We ordered tapas a good selection for 3 to share. I had heard that it was really good. It was disappointing. The food was cold usually the dishes are so hot that it... More

Thanks for your feedback. We open until 11 so certainly wouldn't have been rushing you out the door, apologies if you thought that way. We've never had an issue with cold food before and as it's cooked fresh on the premises to order I can't understand why this why would have been. If you'd let us know you were disappointed... More

The first time I went to el Toro was in 2012 but have never been back as I didnt enjoy it. So glad I went back last week! I went with some friends to have some tapas for lunch and we were immediately greeted warmly by a lovely pink-haired waitress (I dont remember her name) and I can't believe how... More

I've been going here since 2011 on and off. To be honest I've never tried anything but the cakes. I will one day but I'm walk past it most days and I've already planned food at home but I always see the cakes & go straight in to buy a piece. £2.50 for slice. Can't go wrong actually because they... More

Delicious tapas and decent wine choices. Good selection of vegetarian and pescatarian dishes. Ideal place if you're looking for a cosy, quiet restaurant with friendly service and great atmosphere.

We were looking forward to some fresh vibrant flavours here but were left wanting. The bread & olives are OK but really expected more than that, really good olives are not hard. We ordered four tapas, the whitebait was fine but overbreaded, a light batter I feel is called for its not scampi!. The Galician octopus was not fresh &... More

I've been wanting to try this out for a very long time as I live nearby. I finally went in the evening and ordered several different tapas. Ordered about 8-10 dishes in total but nothing stood out at all, took 30-40 mins for the first dish to come out and the staff were putting food on the tables we didn't... More

First time we went here (February 2015) we loved it! Great atmosphere and fantastic range of tapas dishes. On our second visit we weren't so pleased. Service was still good but the quality of food had dropped considerably! We had prawns both times but they lacked flavor on the second visit. The garlic bread was served on the same bread... More

Opps, sorry to hear you were disappointed with the bread selection. We don't have much call for wholemeal bread but I'm sure it could have been arranged if you'd asked when ordering. More
