We called in here by chance and were made to feel very welcome by the owner who gave us a table overlooking the sea. A waiter who was very friendly took our order for garlic prawns and garlic mushrooms as starters and I ordered a steak and beef stroganoff for my wife as main courses. I asked if they could... More

Lovely sea view, friendly staff and steaks to die for! Large portions though so don't have a starter unless you are really hungry!

It's located in a busy walk through to the beach. You will be approached and dragged in but hey it's not bad for the money. We have used the bar more than the restaurant for a little tipple (coffee and brandy). If you want reasonable food at at reasonable cost that what it offers.

We popped in on our first visit to the beach. What attracted us initially was the cool area at the back which was essential at lunch during a 30 degree heat. Very friendly staff and we were made to feel welcome. Food was better than we expected and given the location, value for money and quality of food we went... More

Given its location we has some doubts but this was our best meal in Maspalomas ! Great fish, great meat, lovely service. The place was filled with regular customers, felt like a big family or group of friends. We will be back.

We happened to be close so we looked up El Toro and it was hard to find and as in many reviews the interior looked pretty dodgy. Since it had got very good reviews we decided to try it out. At the entry... More

El Toro was nice enough with a decent menu. We ate inside and had lunch for two for €30 which was the best value we had on the front. The food was well presented and pleasant.
