For more than 10 years that I'm visiting this restaurant say, at least 3-4 times a year. Usually I go with a group of colleagues, especially when we have international meetings at the headquarters of the company we all work for, located in Iserlohn. The menu focus a lot on meat dishes, very well cooked and served by a professional... More

we really enjoyed our meals that were served quickly even though the place was extremely full. The service was excellent and friendly and will definitely go back again. It was a lovely way to end Valentine's Day even after nearly 26 years of marriage.

Growing up in in Iserlohn and the moving to the US where I have lived for the last 24 years, I would honestly never expected a more than decent restaurant in Iserlohn. Well - today we were in for a surprise. In a very unassuming location and not a fancy neighborhood, El Toro makes up for it in ambiance, service,... More

we were a party of 4, ordered 2 plates (1 plate is supposed to feed 2 persons) and they prepared a HUGE plate for all of us together. Meat was excellent, fried potatoes also very nice as the vegetables. Service was quick and good. This place will definetly see me again!

Now, I say a great steak place, but you have to remember where you're at. You're in Germany and there not really known for their steaks. As a matter of fact, when the Germans visit us in the US, they would eat steak every night. The US is know for their steaks. Having said that, this was the best steak... More

Succulent and tender steaks and lots of other very tasty meat dishes full of flavour, a great choice of side dishes and a very good salad bar, an excellent choice of drinks and attentive and friendly staff.

Excellent restaurant and staff. I stay in Iserlohn on business frequently and often go here. The staff are good, the salad and steaks are superb. Prices are reasonable, especially for such a high quality steak. Thoroughly recommended.
