Lovely tapas and atmosphere :)

I have been here a couple of times for coffee and meringue (all flavours delicious) and once for an evening meal with my family. The inside of the restaurant is nice but small-ish so you may need to book. All of the tapas we tried were very tasty, although the olives were a bit bland. The... read more

My wife and I booked a table and decided to opt for the early bird menu. This consisted three tapas with a drink thrown in. There were around eight different tapas to choose from on this menu with a varied choice. We had garlic mushrooms, goats cheese salad, lentils with choritzo, patatas bravas, tortilla with bread and meat balls. All... More

Disappointed with the food, been previously and really enjoyed it. Not sure what's happened - even the simplest of dishes was very poor patatas bravas tasted like frozen chips with tin tomatoes! Won't be going back, shame!

I'm really sorry you feel that way and can assure you our potatoes are always fresh, the sauces whether for bravas or alioli are all made by me, by hand and use the freshest ingredients. Hope you'll consider revisiting. More

My husband and I first went along to this restaurant in the Summer of 2014, and return here at least once a month if not more if we can. An amazing selection of tapas, beautifully prepared and presented. We know no matter what that the food here is always up to scratch and has never failed to disappoint either of... More

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
