Right off the statue near the police guy is the el Toro. Food is yucatecean and is good. We ate breakfast and although slower than some places the food was savory good. The cost is reasonable. It is small and can be crowded.

The restaurant was sweltering hot, maybe 10 degrees hotter than outside. Although open, the staff were off-putting and didn't seem to want any customers. This combination made us walk away and choose another restaurant.

Excellent service, good food. If you are looking for food and lovely service you must visit this place. Ask for Empanadas de Chaya or Pollo con arroz.

Popped in for a couple of cold beers while in the town and went back in the evening for food, very helpful and friendly staff. Ask about why the restaurant is called its name.

We came to El Toro as a dinner spot handy to the Sound And Light show at the Convento. At 7:00pm, we were the only customers. The TV was blaring a soccer game, which spoiled the atmosphere. But here is not much of that. Paper...More

This restaurant served mostly Mexican food . The menu was quite large and the meal was very tasty. Plates were reasonably priced and portions were very generous.
