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.

Very enjoyable evening. We went on a Tuesday night and it was quiet. I would expect the atmosphere would be fantastic when all the tables were taken. Food and decor was excellent as were the staff.

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.

We were down in Devon for the weekend celebrating our daughter 4th birthday and came across the restaurant whilst searching for nearby places to eat, my husband and I already love Mexican food but we thought we’d give it a go with our 3 girls, who are 9, 4 and 2. The restaurant was beautifully decorated, the staff couldn’t do enough for us and the food was outstanding. We requested the food quite plain for the children with the sauces on the side for them to try and it was all catered for, our eldest told our waiter the food was better than Mac Donald’s which I think anyone with kids will see is a massive compliment haha! Would 100% recommend this restaurant to families or couples eating out.

I loved the food, which came out very quickly considering how much we ordered and was all amazing. Considering it only reopened again recently, it was great. Although it was very quiet when we were there, staff were all really friendly and approachable. It’s so nice to have such a unique restaurant in Bideford! Small complaints would be the meat in the tacos was a little dry but that’s about it. Great range of food and drinks, all very reasonably priced in my opinion. Would definitely recommend this to everyone :)

Such a big fan of this place! Lovely staff and great food. So glad a food venue like this has opened up locally. It’s nice to have somewhere a bit different do go for food and drinks. We had the burrito and chimichanga, both were delicious. The cocktails looked amazing so will definitely be back so try more of the menu.
