Arrived at 7 pm on a Friday evening for dinner. We chose our own table and were greeted in a friendly manner. I ordered the Acapulco Burrito and my husband ordered the wet burrito. The food arrived in a timely manner and tasted great. Only...More

My husband and I walked to El Toro Loco from our vacation rental, based on a recommendation from our hosts. We weren't really sure what to expect. It was packed for a 3:30 late lunch! I took that as a great sign. We both ordered...More

Decided to give a home town restaurant a chance. Went in a Saturday night. Web site said busy hours are between 5 and 6:30. It was right, we had a bit of a wait. Restaurant is very small and tables are close together. The food...More

Not much for atmosphere or decor, but the food is excellent. I recommend the paella highly. My only quibble is too much squid but that is a personal preference; to those who like calamari this could be a plus. The carnitas burrito is also good.

Had heard there are TWO Peruvian restaurants in Pacifica. One looked great for daylight view dining, but El Toro Loco had the locals approval and far less expensive. We were amazed at the diverse crowd of families and couples at 7pm on a random Thursday...More

A hidden treasure. One of my favorite places to eat. Love the salad with it's lemon vinaigrette and the quesadilla is yum as well as the plantains. Everything on the menu is delisious

It's a small cozy place with a delicious mix of both Mexican and Peruvian dishes that won;t bust your wallet. It's friendly, reasonably priced and the staff remembers you if you go often as I do, sometimes even take-out. Food is fresh, served hot, and...More

Food: Shrimp Burrito-good but would have liked 1-2 more shrimp and a sauce on top; fish taco-fine, pork taco could have used some salsa topping, fried calamari-very good; needed a tad more dressing in the papercup, flan-a bit small, edges a little too much flame...More
