Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great visit, food is promptly served and is great quality. The staff were incredibly friendly. Hadn’t realised that they do the all you can eat on a Saturday, which was a nice change as wanted to have a different items. Great price and will be...back again soonMore

The rice with pork chicken and white wine, chickpeas and vegetables, lamb stew and chorizo, egg and potato were particular standouts. Service was fast and polite and for 4...if us who had 3 dishes each, a glass of Sangria, a non alcoholic beer, coke and table water, the bill came to just over £20 each which for the size, quality, variety and authenticity of the dishes, I felt was excellent value.More

Heard good things and despite being from notts area, travelled with a friend to try out the all you can eat tapas at £24.95, you can pick three dishes each to start, from an extensive menu, then two dishes each then one and keep ordering...one each until you’re full. Drinks and puddings aren’t included but are reasonably priced. We ate a range of dishes such as chicken, beef, hallumi, spring rolls, meat balls, pasta, aubergine, potatoes and all were hot, tasty and freshly cooked The staff were polite, chatty and helpful - the street also had several other restaurants that looked worth a visit and so no doubt we will be back to the area.More

I have recently moved to the area, my friends visiting suggested here. The food was to die for. The minced chicken and beef with aubergine was particularly good. Will certainly visit again

I'd had a hard day working in Hull and was driving to Stoke on Trent. My journey took me past Doncaster. I headed to El Torero. It was every bit as welcoming as I remembered. The food was amazing. I just sat there, enjoying the...tapas, the music and the friendliness of this lovely restaurant. Thank you once again, you are wonderful.More

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the meal my friends and I had on Wednesday evening. We were the group that showed up. We all enjoyed the plates that we were served. Cooked well, served in good time and hot too. The...pricing was easy to understand, the way the menu was laid out for vegan/vegetarian, fish and meat options made it easy to select the different plates and especially liked that you wasn't put in a position to waste good, tasty food. hen we return to Doncaster again, we hope to come by again for some more amazing food!More

I’d give the food and drink a 3.5/ 10. Bland, over cooked and tiny portions, even for tapas. £25 each for food, and £18.95 for a jug of sangria, mostly ice. Over priced, tasteless, will not go again. Staff were pleasant enough, restaurant empty on...a Saturday, lacked atmosphere. Used to be amazing under ‘El Toro’ management, since it changed to ‘El Toreo’ it’s just gone more down hill every time we’ve been.More

We visited here for lunch, and had the all you can eat menu for £16. There’s a great choice of dishes, more than any tapas restaurant I’ve been to before. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the service was quick. The food was...amazing, we didn’t go crazy and had 10 dishes between the two of us, which was just enough for lunch. You can have more if you want it, but for lunch that was enough for us. It was fairly quiet, which is understandable for a Wednesday at 1pm. They really deserve to have more people in with such a good menu and bargain price.More
