El Toro is a Tapas and Tequila House situated in sunny Durban North. This trendy eatery offers Mexican and Latino inspired food and culture. The owners encourage you to use your hands, share a drink and go a bit LOCO, leave full, happy & a little bit sideways.


The décor at El Toro definitely sets the scene for a Mexican fiesta. The interior shows off screed flooring, exposed brick, fairy lights, wooden tables with bright orange seating, cattle skulls hung tastefully on the walls and a feature wall in bright pink and grey. An outside deck is perfect for sipping cocktails and sharing tapas with friends.


A few menu favourites at El Toro include the paellas, especiales and Parillas. All of the Tacos, Nachos and Tortillas are 100% gluten and wheat free AND when you're matter what time it is..... you are always welcomed as the kitchen doesn’t close at all during the day. The kitchen cooks with whole natural spices and lots of chillies so some dishes are muy caliente.

And if ever in doubt…have another tequila!
