“Great local place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Awesome, what a find. A real locals eatery, recommended by our hotel owner who arranged for johnathan and team to cook our sport fishing catch! Yes, we brought our fish and they made the most wonderful selection out of it. The best Sierra we ate in the 5 weeks we travelled Mexico! Clams were great too. Thank you so much for making us welcome. ( This is a daytime place to eat so arrive before 3/4pm).

“Really FRESH Seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

My friends and I went to this place on the recommendation of the staff at cactus car rental and we absolutely loved it!

Our server (Jonathan) was fantastic and very patient. The menu is entirely in spanish and we couldn't understand anyof it. So we just described what we wanted and he said "I'll make you something." He returned with with absolutely beautiful and delicious plate! The seafood is very fresh and the portions are pretty sizeable so bring your appetite. We had margaritas and pina colada -- both of which were fantastic. The empanadas are the best I've ever had.

“Amazing shrimp tacos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Upon visiting San Jose del Cabo, my boyfriend and I had been told to check out El Toro Guero by many of the locals. We were not disappointed. He had the breaded fish plate and I had shrimp tacos. Both were delicious. They do a shrimp taco where the shrimp is grilled and in a stew and it was amazing. Their regular fried shrimp tacos were also great. I've tried several different places in the Cabo area and these shrimp tacos were the freshest and tastiest. The fish plate was also excellent. It came with rice, potatoes, tarter sauce and tortillas. The salsas were good. The service was great. It's a great place to go to for some good seafood at affordable prices.

“Seafood fix satisfied”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Extensive menu in Spanish only. Bring your dictionary and learn some of the language. Service was super. Portion size was super grande. Ate lunch of pescado ceviche and pescado filete mango. Could have fed 3 easily. We couldn't find room for dinner that night. We like small town Mexico and it reminded us of that. "The Fair Bull" serves fresh seafood and knows how to prepare it so you will say yum. Very reasonably priced in non pretentious setting. Get out of gringolandia and get a piece of real Mexico!
