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!
Read the Trip Advisor reviews and thought we would try out El Toro Bravo. Very positive first sign in that the place was full and very positive welcome from the staff so we waited outside for ten minutes or so reading the menu. We (me plus wife and two daughters) all ordered different mains and all really enjoyed them. Great experience and staff really looked after us, especially nice touch for the owner to come and thank us as we left. Many thanks!
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.
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.
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.
Just amazing!! The food, the flavor, the service, everything!!! Gracias Pedro!!!
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!
