First time visiting el toro loco with friends last night …
Had heard really good things about it and it was very nice they had live music .. service was a little slow but we wasn’t bothered by this as was too busy chatting and listening to the live music they apologised at the end as was short staffed but we once again wasn’t fussed… food was lovely just the right amount of portions will definitely be back …

Great food and service, what worried me was when the place filled up the number of people that didn't have masks on or sanitize there hands.
There was mexican back ground music till live musician arrived but didn't play any mexican style of music at all which ruined the atmosphere. When my bill arrived I was over charge I noticed 5 pints at £4.80 was charged at £25 when only had 4 I was also charged for an extra cocktail.
When this was pointed out to managment it was quickly rectified.

A little tricky to find but well worth it! Great Mexican food, matched by the excellent, friendly and professional service team. A good venue for both small and larger party groups. Wishing you all every success for the future.

Excellent meal for my wife's birthday. Four us all had different meals and not a bad thing to say about it.
The Mexican chocolate brownie desert is fantastic, lively hint of spice in the brownie goes down so well.

Tuesday Taco lunch was judged good value. Sadly the steak in my fajita was poor and although the staff readily agreed to change it for a different meal I really think the poor steak should have been spotted. I think friendly gesture would have been a drink on the house perhaps or a discount on the second meal. Music loud to our taste but 3 of our group of 4 had hearing problems
Would visit again -

Very friendly and help staff. The food was amazing and delicious, our party of 4 had the burrito bowl, chicken tacos, steak tacos and the chicken and chorizo estepada. All freshly cooked with beautiful ingredients. Cocktails were unbelievable. The decor is brilliant and the mariachi music was fantastic. If you’re in north Devon, Bideford area, El Toro Loco is definitely worth a visit.

It was our first visit to El Toro Loco, it was a Thursday night and it was quiet but this was great so you could actually talk without shouting like some restaurants. It has been a while since we had Mexican but we enjoyed the meals very much. If anything they were slightly over cooked but this did not detract from the taste and quality. The service was very good and helpful. We will definitely be returning and enjoyed our night.

Really good meal, quick service probably due to being quite quiet in there. Staff looked happy especially the bar tender. Sad there's no longer chicken wings, but food was good, some meals seemed expensive but average good price.

Sat outside Service was quite slow. Veggie nachos ok , calamari looked underdone. Could have been crisper. We were the only customers there at lunchtime after another customer left shortly after we got there. Not bust at all.

It was very quiet so cannot really grade the ambience
The starters were excellent
The Chimichangas I believe were actually Burritos based on the descriptions
So they were either not cooked properly or they got the order wrong
Online it said they had two courses for £15 per person but they claimed it had ended

Arrived early and was greeted by a member of the team (very friendly) shown to our seats.
(could of done with cushions)
Ordered drinks. Arrived quickly.
On awaiting our starters we both noticed that the floor needed a sweep. Starter arrived quickly and was very nice.
Main course followed quickly and again was very nice.
Sweets were nice as well.
All in all it was nice to get out for a meal for the 1st time since covid started.
