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!
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.

I brought my daughter and her boyfriend here. They were visiting me from Minnesota. We had the best dining experience EVER! The food was delicious. The service was grand. And nothing prepared us for the treat we received at the end of our meal! Thank you!!
This place is a hidden gem. The food was wonderful and our waiter was friendly and very prompt with our order. The salsa (made from scratch I heard) and chips were delicious. If you love Southwest Mexican you’ll fall in love with this quaint little restaurant. The New Mexico enchiladas are incredible! The owner came out and personally greeted us, then came back after we finished and thanked us for coming. We’re already planning our next trip to El Toro Bravo!
Absolutely the best Mexican food our family has ever had. In our group of 5, the vote was unanimous. Salsa was the best, burritos were best, desert was best. As good or better as advertised for us. We will be back.
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!
