If it’s not good, I will not serve it.
Since 2005, Ruben and El Toro Bravo have been welcoming guests into one of the best dining experiences in Sarasota.
El Toro Bravo has maintained its small town warmth and charm by delivering friendly service with exceptional Southwest Mexican food. Ruben personally travels to the markets to hand-pick only the freshest and most colorful produce for his dishes. You won’t find lard or vinegar being used at El Toro Bravo. Ruben insists on cooking with olive oil and canola oil because they are healthier and more flavorful.
Diners can choose from a wide variety of carefully prepared menu items and can choose from Ruben’s own special sauce creations, red or green (or ask for Christmas – which is a combination of both).
What people are saying!
The chicken fajitas were the best I’ve ever tasted and the deep fried brownies were amazing! The service was top-notch. My favorite restaurant to visit when I’m in Sarasota!
Been searching for authentic Southwest Mexican food since leaving Colorado. WE FOUND IT!!! Ramon is the perfect host and it’s like eating at his home. Best Mexican food this side of the Rockies.
Excellent food with good service. We were impressed that the owner was present both times we ate there. We are from Maryland – where we have good Mexican restaurants, but El Toro Bravo is one of the best!
Just amazing!! The food, the flavor, the service, everything!!! Gracias Pedro!!!
We’ve been here numerous times and have never been disappointed. The food is consistently outstanding and always served steaming/sizzling hot. The owner/chef “Rubin” is usually always present and makes numerous rounds during the time you’re there to be sure everyone is happy with their meal and also pitches in to refill drinks, salsa, etc., when the wait staff gets busy filling orders.
For over ten years our family has worked to provide the highest quality Mexican food in Sarasota, made from the finest ingredients available. We are excited to share our new location with you and thank you so much for your support!
