A friend and I visited El Toro yesterday evening and found it busy and full of cheery customers all clearly enjoying themselves. What a lovely atmosphere. By chance we arrived about 655PM and therefore qualified by 5 minutes for the enormously good value early evening £12.50 meal - 3 tapas per person plus a drink each. The waitress was charming....

Excellent food in a friendly and relaxed environment.... Quite often the choice at a tapas place can be limited for vegetarians but here the menu has 12 things on it which is certainly enough for one person! All the food is labelled clearly as gluten free or not and you are encouraged to ask the staff if you have allergies... More

Rustic looking tapas bar with great food. They say small is beautiful and this place certainly is. You can't call the portions small ....they are on the generous side and the quality and authenticity is superb! Lots of choice, including vegetarian, with many dishes you don't see on other tapas menus.prices are average, but I feel the wine is a... More

I like the fact that the service very good , the food comes out fast , and the portions are large compared to the price , sometimes you can see the chef coming out with tapas and a smile on his face. On weekends all the tables are full !! Making a reservation is a smart move. That night ,... More

We had a friend's birthday dinner in early April at el Toro. There were ten people in our group and everyone as far as I remember was very satisfied. We had various different Tapas dishes and they were all very lovely! It cost about 25.00 GBP per person including drinks. Great atmosphere and good service.

I normally visit El Toro during the day and have one of their gorgeous manchego sandwiches or a cheeky slice of cake, I decided to visit on an evening with my boyfriend to try out the tapas menu. It was a great atmosphere and Amy, our waitress, was very attentive to us the whole evening. The tapas was delicious, I... More

Pros: nice darjeeling tea, comfortable enough surroundings, good prices (£3.85 for an 'eat in' sandwich), nice range of sandwiches (quince jam- yum). Cons: service a little terse, no milk provided with the tea until requested, large joint of meat open to the air (more than a little unnerving) and the sandwich was ill-conceived. The bread was crusty, but gave the... More

Hi, I'm really sorry you were unnerved by the meat and didn't enjoy the bread. Sounds like our staff were having a bit of an 'off' morning. Surprised though as we've had no complaints in the last 7 years of using this type of bread but we all have our own tastes and if you do want something a little... More

3 small scallops hidden amongst the salad for £6.50, omelette was good but not one other memorable dish -all bland. Whitebait was returned minus one which seemed to have been soaked in fat and refried.The most disappointing tapas we've had in Sheffield considering the very good reviews. Service was friendly but bill of £70 for 2 adults and 2 children... More
