Place is small and slightly cramped, sat on the ground floor by the back door, people kept leaving the door open and it was freezing and annoying! Food was pricey but lovely and tasty. All the staff were great.

Just had dinner with my wife here & food has been brilliant as usual, I had the steak with chimichurri sauce which was really good & also had some of my wife's tapas which again were great! Would always recommend this restaurant.

Have now been to this restaurant twice. We recently had a colleagues leaving meal here and we had the set Tapas menu and it was excellent. Service was great too. All of our party enjoyed the evening.

Food poor, service poor, drinks expensive, chef rude and uncaring. One to avoid. First visit to El Toro and last. Everything about this place is not good. I didn't enjoy one aspect of this restaurant.
