“Delicioso!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

I like Mexican food to start with. The servers were very friendly and attentive. The price was reasonable, the food delicious, and the breakfast rated the best in Banff! Wow!

“Amazing tapas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

My family and I were staying at the Irwin Mountain Inn, and we had a nice discount at El Toro, so we had to go there for supper. It was definitely worth it! My sister and her boyfriend had the hamburgers, while my mom and I had the tapas. The tapas were marvelous! I particularly liked the fried plantains with guacamole. I would definitely go again.

We ordered to our room. The service was super fast and our fajitas and quesadillas were amazing. We will definitely eat here on our next trip

“Good food, mediocre service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I had dinner here. The food was good, I had the roasted red pepper soup and the lamb shoulder, both were excellent. She had a pretty good Cesear salad (but bacon not anchovies) and a quesidilla with bison chirizo that was very good. But the service didn't match. It was ok in the middle, but we waited a while to get seated, after they said "5 minutes", and it took a long time to get a check. That meal, with two drinks and a small olive plate was $80 before the tip.
