Only popped in for a coffee but it was a great cup. So glad we chose to go here over Costa over the road. Tapas looked nice and the restaurant was very busy. Has been years since I last ate here but I'm keen to try it out again soon.

We were very disappointed after reading excellent reviews. The food was not hot, it was very expensive the smallest tapas portions, the chicken wings were the smallest I've ever seen and it was £80 for four people who were starving. Nice desserts, nice place and friendly staff. Good sangria but too expensive for poor food.

We had a lovely dinner at El Toro and must have sampled nearly every tapas dish on the menu, all of which were excellent. The staff were very helpful and we especially liked the Spanish Waitress. El Toro is excellent value for money and has a great atmosphere as well as great food. We will definitely be returning. Note that... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this little place. Lovely little dishes are available and the service is great despite the fact that only one waitress was working. My girlfriend and I were made to feel very welcome. We will definitely be back.

This restaurant has recently changed hands and it's not as good as it used to be. They had run out of many dishes and the front of house was too busy entertaining a couple at the bar to notice the rest of her customers. Great shame because this place used to be a great little spot.

Best cakes I tried in ages. The staff is absolutely friendly. Everything is made with loads of love and the fact that it is small contributes to the cosy aura it has. PS: I have written a 10,000 word essay there,the internet is quite fast, just choose the non busy hours :)

I've been to El Toro a number of times in the last few weeks - with family, my partner and friends. El Toro functions as a authentic Tapas restaurant throughout the day and into the evening, but there is also a huge breakfast menu, various sandwiches/flans, etc available during the day, and they're quite happy for you to just go...

I visited el Toro this evening with a friend who is new to Sheffield and wants to be introduced to good places to eat. The seating area is very limited. Admittedly the other tables were all occupied but I don't think this justifies the fact that we were completely forgotten, despite sitting directly in front of the counter. My friend... More

I came with a large group of friends and despite being a large table we had fabulous, attentive service. Food was lovely- we had most of the tapas dishes on the menu and all were great, Patas bravas and the chorizo dish both stood out. Try as many as possible! The waitresses were really knowledgeable about the menu and clearly... More

We have been eating out in Sheffield for eight years now and El Toro is still by far our favourite. The tapas is fabulous and always really fresh, wine is good, the cakes and puddings are amazing and the service is always warm and friendly. It has a very laid back atmosphere and is somewhere to take your time over... More
