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!
Ate at your restaurant twice during our recent stay on Siesta Key- both meals were wonderful! Everyone is so friendly, and the food is fantastic- what more could you ask for? Only one complaint- you are 1,000 miles away from home!!!! Would love to have the recipe for the cinco queso dip- I don’t think we can wait to have it just once a year in Sarasota!
This is a great place for Mexican and it’s not a chain. The prices are very reasonable and the place is spotlessly clean and pleasant. Nice selection, friendly service. You are sure to enjoy yourself here.
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!
This place is fantastic! Probably the best Mexican restaurant in all of Sarasota. My wife and I love the fajita’s and they have fantastic burrito’s. Now that I am looking over your new website, we will be visiting you again soon!
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.
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!
