We've been Ek Toro many times and it's the best steaks I've had so far. Not just in Swindon but in the whole of the UK to be honest. High quality locally sourced steaks cooked to perfection each and every time. Highly recommended.

I have no idea why this little restaurant is so quiet. Each time I visit the food is just delicious and the service exemplary.

We ordered steaks, they checked and double checked how we would like them cooked and they were cooked exactly how we asked. Very friendly and perfect location if visiting Wyvern Theatre and Arts Centre, which we were. Will come here again :-)

Serving probably the best steaks in Swindon and excellent tapas, this is a favourite. The rest of the menu is good, though my wife was saddened to see prawns appearing as part of the fish dish of the day (a common problem)

We went here for our wedding anniversary. The tapas us delicious. Authentic Spanish food in a small but fantastic venue. You could almost be in Spain. Looking forward to returning and sampling more of the menu.
