Nice friendly restaurant run by a couple who were chefs in the hotel business before opening thier own restaurant. Good food and great deserts.

Love this place. The chicken, the ribs, the chorizo, the poc chuc... all of it is excellent! I've never had a hot sauce / salsa with so much flavor. Worth the taxi ride into town away from the tourist district.

Everything said about this small family run restaurant is true! We visited this restaurant last week and we were the only ones there. Helena and Philippe were wonderful hosts and the courses are all out and beautifully presented - chips, soup, salad, main dish with rice and vegetables, and garlic bread. My husband had the El Torito special fish and... More

I was in Cozumel for 4 weeks. This was my go to restaurant. Dinner comes with soup. Portions are large. Prices are low and this guy can cook. The service is very friendly. Its low key but well worth the trip.

Everything said in the previous reviews was true! All of the dishes ordered were delicious - the soups, fish, quesadillas and nachos were all amazing. The service was so friendly and attentive. Highly recommend and will be returning because I am already craving the cilantro fish! Very reasonable - 8 people with beers was just a little over $80 dollars!

Tried El Torito based on Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The meals were excellent, with great presentation, and friendly owners. The meals came with very good soup and lots of chips and sauces. El Torito is away from the waterfront area, and is worth finding.

We happened upon El Torito a couple years back, and look forward to returning every time we are in Cozumel! The service is excellent with a homey feel and the cuisine is even better. The restaurant is predominately spanish speaking, however it's been our experience that anything on the menu will knock your socks off. Great way to start your... More

The menu is wonderful, anything you would want. The ceviche and grilled fish, with salads and soups is what we ordered. All prepares perfectly. Service was superb as well. If you are staying at Alicia's BnB or near the plaza at City Hall, this restaurant is close by.
