Great place and the food was tasty, menu limited (which is prob due to restrictions at the moment) a bit over priced we felt. Nachos to start which would have been better with some extra dips etc as the nachos at the bottom were then dry. Service was great , friendly and attentive team.

Food was excellent and a lovely atmosphere however service a little slow took several attempts of getting the waiters attention to get the bill, although the food was lovely the price you pay seems a little high as it doesn’t really feel like you’re getting a full meal, I had the fajitas which were lush but there wasn’t a lot there and only came with 3 very small wraps, was still very hungry after finishing but was still a very enjoyable evening

Brought my parents out for my dads birthday, the whole party thoroughly enjoyed the evening. As always the service was fantastic and the food was superb as an added bonus there was a live singer while we were there who really set the ambience for the evening. Really well done Team El Toro Loco. Thanks for a fantastic evening, keep up the fantastic work and we’ll be back after the next lockdown x

Overall it was a very good.... my only recommendation would be to make the large dining area a little more cozy. Its a bit too canteen like. If it were split into 4 sections it could be an improved dining experience. Food and staff were very good

Lovely modern Mexican restaurant - A slightly bigger vegetarian menu would have been good but at least 3 choices so everyone ate happy!

Overall, a great experience. Staff were really friendly and welcoming. Food was amazing, great flavours and very fresh. Would probably recommend the Calamari starter, which was so tender and cooked to perfection. It’s great to have something different in bideford and I couldn’t recommend this place more.

First visit and main thing was we felt safe, plenty of space between tables and staff all in masks. Very helpful with Gluten free food as I have Coeliac disease.
Would definitely go there again.

Excellent meal on the whole & the staff were awesome. Can’t fault them. The restaurant itself could just do with ‘warming up’ a bit. Being at Affinity its still a little clinical.It could do with being a little more warm & individual.Having said that,it’s only 5 weeks old & has opened in a pandemic. Go try it. It’s really good ! I will definitely go back again.

First time coming to El Toro Loco, loved the service from the moment we came into the door till the moment we left. The open floor diner is a classic Mexican feel and the noise wasn’t even that bad! The menu was small but perfect. The food was lush. Only fault is portion size.. I had chicken fajitas which was really nice but could definitely of smashed 2/3 more wraps. Overall a really great and pleasant experience!

Food good, not overly "mexican" in flavour profile but good. Portion sizes varying. Half of my main was tepid, chips undercooked and chicken "grill" virtually cold. No check backs. Staff not customer focused. Group of youngsters came in, no masks, not challenged, not good. Early days with room to improve and bring that long awaited something new and exciting to the area.
