The popularity of tapas restaurants has seen numerous pretenders crop up throughout London, New Malden is lucky enough though to have El Toro Tapas Bar, an utterly authentic dining room filled with Meditaranean flavour.

Take your time, enjoy food and wine as it should be enjoyed and bring your friends, after all, tapas is all about sharing and El Toro Tapas Bar is all about tapas.

We ordered six dishes off the standard tapas menu and every single one of them, without exception, was absolutely delicious. The restaurant was quiet when we came, and so we could see our food being prepared to order, and we had very attentive personal service...More

Visited this tapas bar last night for a meal with family. It was very quiet but the food and service were amazing. Would thoroughly recommend! Only negative is that they do not take Meerkat Meals despite being advertised on the Meerkat app as doing so!

I was very impressed with El Toro. Despite having a big group of 12 people, they gave us an excellent service. The owners are really attentive and lovely and the selection of tapas was delicious. I highly recommend this place.
