Been here twice during our 4 nights stay in Banff. Very (!) attentive and friendly staff. Quesadilla, Fajitas both yummy. Highlight was the tenderloin steak which was simply tender and delicious. 2 beers on tap. The Chardonnay (Wente Morning Fog) recommendable, too.
The restaurant had a very wide selection of food from Mexican to steaks . My husband had Mexican and I had a steak the food was excellent. Our host there was Pramod gave us excellent service . I would definitely eat there again
We have been in Banff for a while and this is honestly the best food we have come across in all of Alberta. We ordered a selection of tapas and it was 10/10. Other restaurants looked fancier but if you love food, try El Toro....The staff were also lovely and local beer and wine is great.More
The whole experience at El Toro was great (2 dinners and 1 breakfast) - food, presentation, service. Special thanks goes to Pramod - who was very helpful in addressing our customized requests and dietary restrictions. Highly recommend this place.
I had dinner with friends in El Toro great delicious food. Hospitality from Shaggy and Pramod was amazing. They treated us very well and the chef made us special Tampura shrimps which was delicious. I will definitely come again with my family and friends. Thank...you.More
We and our friends visited Banff and after the first night in town eating at El Toro we made reservations at El Toro to have their special dinner on Thursday. Everything was wonderfully presented and served. Just a beautiful evening and our server Pramod remembered...us from earlier in the week and treated us like family.More
My family has now eaten there twice in our visit to this beautiful city. The food was perfection. Our server Pramod went above and beyond to answer our questions and deal with dietary restrictions. Would highly recommend
