Cake and coffes are excellent here as are some of the pork dishes....Been here a quite few times now for lunches the tapas dishes are a little to big for the real tapas but a bit small for an english lunch meal. We have mixed dishes between us but it never gets that loads of little tasters feel. It often... More

Came in for breakfast, the lady who served us (short blondey brown hair) was very accommodating and lovely to our large group and made us breakfasts that were really yummy! Also hot drinks to die for! Better to support your local businesses than go to costa or a chain! They have lovely home made cakes too which I really enjoyed.... More

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 :)
