Have attended on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. In fact one of our guests on a previous visit reported that he had the best steak ever and this was from a man who travels extensively and knows what makes for a good meal. Our most recent visit was in the company of friends and everyone was... More

Very good Spanish Tapas restaurant, third visit and will definately return and recommend to friends. The service was excellent and as alwasy the tapas was great with plenty of choice and some good recommendations from the Waitress.One of two tapas restaurants in Swindon within a stones throw of each other, but this one far more suited to a restuarant experience...

Spanish Tapas restaurant serving good quality Spanish food. Would recommend the chorizo and Spanish black pudding. Service was slightly off the pace but the staff were friendly and the restaurant had a good atmosphere. Reasonably priced at around £25 pp ex tip.

Very friendly staff with warm welcome. We had some decent Tapas for starters but the mains were very disappointing. My wife chose the fillet of Hake which was OK but a very small portion of fish, I chose the chicken with chorizo & peppers which was again a small portion with chicken breast not thighs as described. Overall disappointed and... More

This is a nice little place, but I think the food is overpriced for what you get. I had the chimmichurri chicken which was pretty tasty and I enjoyed the Argentinian sauce. However the piece of chicken wasn't large and I got about 5 tiny bits of potato and some salad with it. Have to say I went to bed... More

Walked in on a busy Saturday night with no booking and the team at El Toro worked hard to fit us in and make us feel comfortable. The food was delicious, the wine was very tasty and it had a great atmosphere. Definitely want to come back. Thank you.
