Title says it all. Super food, great service. Food twice as good as the Log House but half the price. Flaming Shashlick kebabs are superb.

I've visited El Toronto multiple time over the past 8 years and it's consistently been great food! Really friendly and attentive staff, nice homely atmosphere and it's definitely one of my favourite places to go in Bansko!
