If you are in the area and want an excellent steak the here's... More

Last minute decision to visit with friends but they fitted us in. From start to finish the meal was excellent. The portion size is more than adequate and the service is excellent. The cost is not cheap but the money was well spent

First of all nice place. You need to book in advance to get a table in front with a view, as this restaurant is popular. Their steaks are really tender and tasteful, one member of our group who do rarely eat meat, stated this was the best steak she ever had, and want to come back another day for more... More

Probably the 5th or 6th visit to this restaurant and never once left disappointed. This time with two small children, but again, a great meal. Staff are friendly, food is excellent and kids are as catered for as the adults. Will always come back

Great atmosphere. Very friendly staff. All meat is prepared on the barbecue in a perfect way. Price is a bit above average compared to dining out in Spain, but it's well worth it.

The ambience of El Toro immediately greets you and gives you that wonderful holiday feeling. Staff are really helpful and friendly. A good range of food on the menu but the steaks are a must. They are cooked to perfection and individual taste and are accompanied with a baked potato and a medley of vegetables. Most enjoyable evening!

Really lovely atmosphere, and attentive staff. Steaks cooked on an open fire pit and were delicious. Served with baked potatoes and veg. My son ordered a side of fries and they were the best fries ever....We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
