Very very bad food. They serve everything: Taco, Pizza, Shwarama, Burger all in a very poor quality. The food is coming frozen, heated by microwave, It is so disgusting, I almost vomit just from thinking about it. If you like the most disgusting food in the world, so that’s the restaurant for you.

The food was good, nothing special but we enjoyed our plates. The services was great, no delay, and friendly. A good address for a quick lunch or dinner.

As we hadn't seen the menu yet, he rushed back to present them. After ordering, the food was promptly served. We enjoyed an ample serving... More

It is not on the main street of Texel. We were there for a weekend, and even though we passed the place about 10 times, we never saw anyone in. However, after not being able to find a proper evening snack anywhere else, we ended up in El Toro. Not only they opened the almost closing kitchen for us, they... More

We chose this restaurant based on the music we could hear! One of the few places with some atmosphere during a quiet time on the Island. We enjoyed a delicious fish platter and chicken wrap dishes. The waitress was really nice and helped us select our dishes, a lovely meal!
