Always great to come to El Toros. Food is tasty, reliable and plenty. Atmosphere is loud and fun. Service is always good. Great for large groups or a romantic night out.
Best tapas bar I have ever been to. Great service comfortable casual atmosphere. service is as fast or relaxed as you need and option for BYO as well. Loved it
We enjoyed the night, loved the food full of taste & beautiful flavours. Entrees was very nice, stuffed grilled squids, garlic prawn & Wagyu skewers.. We all agreed the paella combo & seafood was perfect.. we'll be going back to try something else on the menu.
Exellent food,serving,atmosphere!We loved it!We use to go to other tapas restaurants,and we were disappointed,and stop trying,but,definitely we are coming back,to El Toros!Good to see a smiling waitresses!
I love El Toro Tapas and Pizza Bar. I come in every few weeks, the pizzas are huge!! You'll be needing a takeaway box because you can't finish it all. The chicken &a chorizo paella is delicious, a large portion too.. I love all the carbs. I also recommend the chicken croquettes and chicken quesadillas. The sangria is good too. The waiters are very attentive and helpful! Love coming here for dinner. Also if you leave a review on facebook, Instagram or trip advisor then you get a free Nutella pizza. That pizza is amazing!! I've attached a picture and it's as amazing as it looks.
The food was great but the table we got was not great! I had put in special request when we made our reservation to have nice seats as it was our First year wedding anniversary. This was completely ignored as we were put at large table that could have held 6 + people therefore the meal lack the romantic feel we were hoping for so we were a little disappointed.
Really delicious Spanish food. We ordered the serrano platter which was fantastic (a liberal splash of truffle oil throughout), the King Prawns in an amazing spicy sauce, the very tasty haloumi and mixed dessert platter. We'll definitely be back!
The food was absolutely delicious, the staff were extremely friendly and efficient, recommended us foods to try as we had never been there before, all in all it was definitely worth the price for amazing food and scrumptious food!
Great tapas. Fantastic pizzas. Service also great. The place never disappoints. Lovely atmosphere and good for groups or intimate dinners. Open late too. Close to beach if you're there for lunch - lovely walk afterwards.
Very happy with the standards, food tasted excellent and service was spot on, very professional. Much affordable price. Close to the beach and ambient atmosphere made our night out very special
First time trying Spanish Tappas and it was so tasty. Nice low lit lighting. Pretty good option for the area. Will be retuning if I'm around the area again.
Great tasting tapas, we loved the potatas bravas, the chicken croquets & haloumi & veg. Fast and friendly service, generous portions. Definitely go back there again.
Great food esp calamari tapas and pasta. Very red decor and casual atmosphere but food is worth going for. Staff quite friendly. Place is medium size but can fit big tables.
Great food, good serving size, friendly and attentive service. Would definitely recommend this place for both families and this wanting a more intimate dining experience.
all was good food friendly people the service very good the bill for four persons was ok as I said good food friendly people I will recommend the restaurant
The food was lovely, and the staff friendly. We had a mix of tapas and pizzas and it was all delicious. The price-quality ratio is good too.
Good pizzas, great location always a go to. Have only had pizzas and I can only comment that's here's a good selection to choose from.
Lovely food and great customer service. However more waitresses needed on a busy night as they seemed to be run off their feet a little
Very nice food, service was friendly and quick. Would recommend, to book if you want to come before 8pm Take away was also very busy
Disappointing, staff were disorganised and not dressed appropriately we ordered margaritas 15 mins later were told sorry we can't make them we have no tequila would we like to order something else? Ok Nutty Peaches (never had that before) but no sorry we can't make that either we will go across the road and buy some tequila would you like the margarita? Served 1 hr after original order. food service bad, after everyone else at table eating one person still waiting 30 mins with nothing and when food did arrive half the food on the plate was cold. Truffle pizza nice, Seafood paella nice Tapas was ordinary, shorted on the mussels disappointing overall what a shame really
Great selection of menu items - accommodating for many tastes. The food was tasty and prices were reasonable .Staff were friendly and provided good service.
Pizza either very good or so so, bit so so this time, will still go back in hope of landing a good one, service good
Partner felt sick next day , kids enjoyed pizza, I like the Aranci, setting casual, not sure if we would go back. Only as its just down the road so convenient
Great food - reasonable prices and nice atmosphere inside. Good for kids and adults
It had the potential to be a nice cosy, intimate place to eat, but the Food was not very good. I doubt we'll be back.
The tapas are overpriced for what we got and the kitchen slow. This is really more of a pizza restaurant, rather than a Spanish restaurant.
