great service, fun atmosphere, excellent food selection makes this a place one wants to return to time and again. The waiter upsold both of main dishes, but it was worth it (we both used to wait tables in College so expect that from staff). I had the Shrimp Al La Diabla...upsold to be wrapped in bacon and stuffed with Cheese... More

By far the best seafood restaurant in San Jose or even Cabo. We ordered a ceramic pig of seafood (dont remember what its called). Menu says it feeds 4...BS!!!...It'll feed 6 all day long. Ceveiche was outstanding, Margaritas were awesome and everything only set us back $100. What a deal!!!

We went with a group of new friends our last day. Staff are very accommodating and will make whatever platter you want. We wanted a lobster tail each plus garlic and coconut shrimp. We had a huge platter along with rice, beans, etc. Prices are reasonable and everything was fantastic (coconut shrimp was sooo good)!! This is a busy restaurant... More

Our concierge recommended this as a place where the locals go for seafood. Very casual, very busy but no problem getting a table. The menu is large, and the food was well prepared and excellent. It tasted fresh, and the portions were generous. The margaritas were decent, but not outstanding. The service was okay, but the waiters are more about... More

Stayed at house in Punta Buena and ate dinner at El Toro twice. We were able to drive golf cart from house to restaurant which made this a very convenient location. I had the tuna appetizer which was very fresh and delicious. Main was the Argentinian steak which was wrapped in bacon. It was also very good and prepared perfectly.... More

Authentic! This is not your average touristy spot. Great service and great Agua Chili. Shrimp in the dinners was very fresh, but a bit on the salty side.

If we find one out of the way place with great food and good prices we feel like we hit the jackpot. We found this gem again on trip advisor. We had the carnival of seafood. It stuffed four folks and we didn't find one thing to complain about. Then, after dinner and drinks, our check came out to $25... More

Four of us ate there and all ordered a different shrimp dinner to share. They were all awesome. Stuffed shrimp, was our favorite, then shrimp skewers, coconut shrimp and almond shrimp were also good. The guacamole was awesome also. Great value all four of us with a couple beers was only $54.
