The only thing that spoiled the evening of good food and great service was the music was too loud and annoying
What can I say, would have recommended this restaurant but when I received the bill there was a charge of $56.00 (U.S.) for water!!!!!!! They claimed we drank 6 bottles. We were 4 adults and one child. If a restaurant is going to charge that much they should leave the bottle on the table. They adjusted the bill when we complained but it left a bad taste in our mouth. I’ve been coming to Cabo for many years and this was a first!!!!
The girl at the front desk was very rude. We arrived and there were only two groups in the restaurant and the whole restaurant was empty and she seats us in a corner. When I objected she was very rude. Someone needs to train her in customer service because that is your first impression. The music was too loud for conversation and that is not the live music it’s the one over the speakers.
Good textures and flavors for each dish. Great service.
Toro was the best restaurant we ate at during our recent trip to Cabo. Everything from the margaritas to the food was perfect. When we were seated, I told the waiter that I had a gluten allergy, and they brought me some freshly baked bread with a spicy eggplant spread; it was some of the best gluten-free bread I've had. We had:
- margaritas (much better than the huge glasses of limeade they serve in the more touristy restaurants)
- the angry tuna roll (a spicy tuna reverse roll with avocado)
- crispy crab tacos (the tacos were soft, and the crab was crispy)
- the beet salad
- short rib tacos
- grilled octopus
Every dish was perfect. And for dessert, they brought me a slice of very good gluten-free chocolate cake. The service was attentive without being overbearing. And finally, I liked the more diverse crowd that this restaurant seems to attract. If you want a nouvelle Mexican dinner to remember in Cabo, this is definitely the place to go.
Every time w go, we are impressed with the food quality and beautiful environment
We celebrated our 10th Anniversary with a special dinner. La atención fue increíble, atentos a las alergias y asegurándose de preparar comida que fuera adecuada.
Amazing service, beautiful decoration!
Must go when in Cabos.
Very friendly and the food very good
On vacation in Cabo... this is our second visit to the restaurant and it didn’t seem as lively as our last visit. No live band. Food was okay but it didn’t wow us like last time.
Amazing as always. It’s a must when visiting Cabo.
Service was excellent and food was imaginative. A new Cabo favorite!
We had a lovely meal at Toro last night. The service was wonderful and the food was delicious. We sat outside where it was nice and quiet, the inside seemed a bit more raucous. We appreciated their ability to customize one of the orders and the fact that they didn’t recommend too much food. Overall we would recommend!
Beautiful restaurant and setting but the food was all average - disappointed overall.
I had 2 glasses of average wine and 2 very average appetizers and my bill was $75. Not nearly worth the price. Unfortunate, as the restaurant is lovely. Too many other great options in Cabo.
Came to Cabo to celebrate a wedding. We LOVE food! Foodies:) Stayed at Las Ventanas and Palmilla One and Only. Great boutique resort hotels (TOP NOTCH) to eat, but we wanted to venture out. GREAT food!! Interesting choices. Sushi great!! Fresh! RibEye was THE best rib eye I have ever eaten. Good portions. They made us street corn. Very accomidating. They have a REAL Ham Leg that they cut for prosciutto. Actual leg! Great atmosphere and great food! Glad we ventured out!
Beautiful restaurant at the entrace to Punta Ballena. The staff is warm and friendly and we were promptly seated. They have a gorgeous outdoor seating area with a firepit that is perfect for drinks and dining. We went on a Sunday night to celebrate a friends dinner and it was not crowded. The cocktails are strong and delicious and the wine list features some great wines. The seafood dishes (ceviches, angry tuna, aguachile and escolar) were outstanding - very fresh and expertly prepared. The vegetables and tortilla soup were fantastic too. The steaks were disappointing, both the ribeye and the porterhouse were served warm and the porterhouse was tough and a little overcooked. We had a lovely time and will stick with the seafood options next time.
Amazing everything out of this world
Great food and presentation
Great night out
I was disappointed that they did not have 2 of my favourite appetizers, the tostadas which they said was not available and the lamb skewer with the yogurt sauce which was no longer on the menu.
We had a 10:30 reservation an they didn’t had half of menu and were eager to close
The food was delicious except for a significant miss on the octopus dish. Maybe the worst octopus I’ve ever had. It was over cooked, dry and tasted quite fishy. All the other dishes were superb. The margaritas were maybe the best I’ve had...very classic and very refreshing. The ambience rating reflects not the well done and trendy interior but the blaring music being pumped out by the DJ. If the restaurant had been full with lots of energetic noise the music volume may have been appropriate. As it was there were only 2 tables occupied in the entire restaurant and to say it was annoying is grossly understated. We asked repeatedly if they could please adjust the music level but you guessed it ...not much happened, although I think the waiter did try.
We go everytime we're in Cabo it is fun but with a super upsale and relaxed Vibe
So wonderful!!! We adored everything about it.
Leo fue la persona que nos atendió, muy amable y atento, mi ensalada estaba muy rica, y agradezco nos haya ofrecido una bebida preparada sin alcohol, mi novio y yo no tomamos pero nos gusta probar cosas diferentes y la verdad que fue bueno que Leo nos ofreciera algo diferente, ya que en muchos otros lugares siempre es agua, refresco, limonada o naranjada, y solo están enfocados a una mitología con alcohol
Todos los platillos que pedimos estuvieron excelentes!
Quite possibly one of the best restaurants in Cabo! The Mexican ceviche was phenomenal. The lomo soltado was even better. The seasonal pineapple crumble to finish the night was one of the best desserts I had my whole vacation. I literally had no complaints and neither did my parents dining with me.
We have a place just down the street and always go to Toro a couple times every time we’re there. Great food - amazing service and unparalleled ambiance. Highly recommend.
We just spent a week in Cabo and dined at the better restaurants that friends had recommended. Toro was great- so much that we went back for another evening. Creative menu, great service and very reasonable pricing. Toro and Comal were the dining highlights for us.
I would highly recommend Toro!
Excelente ambiente, servicio y excelente comida, gracias
Innovative, delicious food. Beautiful space, excellent staff.
Todo lo que pedimos estuvo muy bien servido y delicioso. Recibimos excelente atención por parte del personal. Las sugerencias que nos hizo el mesero fueron muy buenas. El único problema es que no hay cambiador para bebés en los baños de mujeres, ni de hombres.
Extraordinaria noche, no pudimos elegir mejor lugar, el servicio, la atmósfera del lugar, la cálida de los alimentos y bebidas aportaron para cerrar un buen negocio, gracias!
Ambiance, food and service were very good! Love the location and scenic views.
Love the atmosphere! The service is exceptional and the flavors fantastic. Highly recommend the rolls and appetizers! Brisket Tacos and Shrimp tacos are outstanding!
Great wine list!
El local estaba medio vacío para ser julio aunque también hay que decir que era domingo, la comida buena pero no espectacular.
Nuestro mesero no estaba del todo atento y eso que no había nadie, cabe destacar que aún no habiendo nadie y estando al lado de nosotros platicando con otros clientes el gerente del local ni nos preguntó si nos había gustado, etc, no se le veía muy profesional la verdad.
The pescado a la talla was outstanding. The ribeye burger was delicious.
Great food in a modern atmosphere. It is perched over the side of the hill with a great view. Food and service very good as well. A good band plays on the side terrace.
Amazing place and great food. Sadly when we were asked for water they end up given us the highest price water (3X fr the regular) on the menu before we had time to check. Will I go again? Yes, but will shut my mouth until a detail inspection of the menu is done.
Excellent in every way. A superb and beautiful restaurant.
The food, drinks, service and atmosphere were great. There was live music the night we were there, and they were good too, but far too loud.
Relaxed ambiance and plenty of rounded flavors. Toro has always been a place I like for their handcrafted cocktails. This time I had a Raspberry Collins, with a Monkey 47 Gin and fresh raspberry puree topped with champagne. The yellow ceviche was incredibly fresh and tasty, with just the right level of spice and the tanginess of just right mango. Octopus Anticucho was next with perfectly grilled octopus on top of tasty crisp potatoes. Soft shell crab tacos, and short rib tacos were good, the short rob ones needed to be hotter, but all the flavors were right.
In my opinion dessert is not a strong point at Toro, ever since they changed the original churro recipe and presentation, but the cheesecake with banana split ice cream was very tasty.
In previous visits Toro's service has fallen short and I have never truly felt welcomed, that changed this time when I can say I enjoyed a dinner with excellent service and great attention to detail.
