Reviews for El Toro Loco

I absolutely love this place. Everything from service, the food, and the atmosphere. I actually liked the old building better but the owner Eduardo and his crew are incredible. My favorite restaurant. My favorite dishes are: chupa de camarones, churrasco a la parilla, diablo camarones and seafood appetizer... Just to name a few. It has that old school feel to it and when the band is playing, "not sure if they still do that after Covid", but your feel at home.... Highly recommended...

Very fast pickup order today ! We spent time walking along the beach wall to enjoy the sea breeze and ocean spray in our faces. This and a great early dinner pickup at El Toro Loco was perfect. The shrimp and garlic cream sauce is delicious. ( wish for more shrimp though) The signature dish, the saltado ... was hearty. Both dishes were presented with an orchid. The restaurant is a bit on the expensive side at around $ 20 per entree but good food. I recommend.

Was excited to give this spot a try during a day trip in Pacifica. "Coastal Peruvian food" sounded legit, and it had great reviews on Yelp. Ordered the Camarones al ajillo, paid $20 + tax/tip, and was disappointed to find a mound of rice with just 6 shrimp (not pictured: some sprigs of salad mix). What a letdown. Ended up getting a $4 shrimp taco around the corner that was much more satisfying (and had as many shrimp!).
