From the outside El Toro doesn't perhaps look the most promising but that is belied by what lies within.
The menu has a nice mix of small plates/tapas and more elaborate main courses. The wine list is interesting and by canadian standards reasonably priced.
The service is friendly , efficient and attentive. But the main reason for going is the quality of the cooking which really is excellent.
The specialty of the house is probably the Chateaubriand for two but I had a really interesting plate of home prepared calamari and a Caesar salad. Maybe not the most enterprising of choices but both were near perfect and exactly what I wanted. My only quibble...no anchovies in the salad. This has become the North American norm but a sad one in my view, Some crisp salty canadian streaky bacon was a reasonable substitute.
I left with a smile on my face as I always do..
