Stopped off for a late lunchtime snack on a windy day, and the Toro & Cactus seemed to fill the bill as it offered good wind protection. We were served well and the pizza we shared was nice; the price was pretty standard. Paying, however, just wasn’t so easy as all the waiters had disappeared! We approached an older man... More

Enjoyed a very good meal here whilst on holiday to Gran Canaria. My husband and daughter shared the rice broth and really enjoyed it. The fish was also very good. Lots of typical spanish dishes. Good service and views across the beach

We were staying very local to this restaurant and stumbled upon it on our first night trip to the supermarket. However, the food was such excellent quality and amazingly cheap, we returned on another two evenings. Yes it's in a run down shopping centre and they make the best if their location. The steaks were superb, tasty and succulent, portions... More

Had a fantastic meal here on Tuesday, wine, steak, paella, honey rum. Pity it's in a delapidated environment but the retardant itself is lovely and the service is second to none, our food was beyond reproach. Loved it. Not to expensive either for six people all ordering the more expensive things like T Bone steak

We had an excellent meal yesterday. The steak was second to none. The staff were very friendly and attentive, especially with my youngest son. My wife and eldest son loved the meat on the hot stone. The portions are a good size so unfortunately we had no room for desert. The complimentary honey rum was a nice touch. Hopefully we... More

We were served by a very rude waiter that made you feel unwelcome, to say the least. We ordered a small lunch, seeing that we were only peckish, and he acted disgusted and passive aggressive because we didn't spend as much money as he liked.

Cocktails were amazing and great service. The boys recommend the t bone steak but you'd need to be really hungry. See picture! I had seafood pasta which was very tasty. Recommend a visit.

I cannot understand how can exist places like this opened. Everything so dirty and nasty food. Any restaurant around will be a better option.

We have visited El Toro for many years and it has developed into a very good restaurant. They serve excellent meat and fish-dishes, the pizza is also good. Most of the restaurant has been re-furnished and the staff is very friendly. Earlier, El Toro was one of several restaurants with ok food in Maspalomas, now it is an excellent place... More
