We were staying close to this restaurant and an employee of the hotel recommended it to us. I was keen to go but my husband is not a great fan of Mexican food so was a little unsure. It turned out that we visited the restaurant on each of the three days we spent in LA. The food is awesome, the prices are very reasonable, and the service is impeccable! On our first visit there the manager stopped at every table in the very crowded restaurant and personally thanked everyone for eating there. We were amazed at that level of attention. This attitude was reflected in all the other staff we met there too, people were so friendly and helpful. If you are staying in this area, which to be honest is not the best area but very close to LAX, you must try El Torito, it's fabulous! Oh and you must try one of their house margharitas.....they are great!
