We took our family this time. We love the place but they were not as enthused as they have been to similar restrauants. Maybe it is because we usually go with friends that live there and they get more involved with the waiters.

Try the Carnival plate with everything. The place is good with lots of variety but not as good as other places in Mexico.

Is this restaurant located on route 1, or is it more towards the town center (square?). I'm seeing conflicting directions when I look it up as its listed as Mariscos El Toro Guero as well as El Toro Guero with differing location

It's across the street from and open field. It's also located not too far from the main square. I was able to walk to it after getting off the bus in town. It was a 5-10 minute walk. Sorry not sure of any street names.

As far as I know, El Toro Guero is open 7 days a week. I don't know about Holy Week in April though.
Any outside dining or water view?
