    Great ambiance, very good and friendly staff, super flexible for my request about people coming to my birthday, really good tequila options and food options. Had a lot of fun and people who came with me also liked a lot the place.

    I hadn't been to El Caballito before and wasn't really sure what to expect other than what I had seen and heard from friends, on Facebook and Instagram. The minute my group got there we were seated promptly and we had received the most attentive service. The food was delicious, the tequila was to die for and my favourite part was the sombreros. I will definitely be returning back and recommending it to my friends.

    I went with my family and there are a couple food restrictions we have. The restaurant was very accommodating and prepared all fresh food for us without hesitation. The food is also amazing with lots of variety. Definitely a place to try out if you haven't yet!

    Great bar, great ambiance and the food was fabulous - the only thing missing was the beach! Excellent food with a terrific tequila selection. we were a table of seven and the service was perfect. Flavours and food style - very authentic.

    El Caballito was a good time. Great drinks, great food, good service. Overall a good experience. The only complaint I have is the prices. I think it's way too high for the portion of the food given.

  • Delicious but SMALL Portions
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 5/17/2014
    I came here with a group of 8. We got the Grande family style menu. We loved how the chips that came with the salsa and guac were a variety of vegetable chips. Everyone loved the tacos here except the portions were really small. The girls were fine with the portion sizes but the guys left a lil hungry (one got poutine elsewhere after). I thought it was gonna be too much food since we ordered the biggest family style menu. It's a great atmosphere just don't expect the regular size tacos you get at other restaurants like Grand Electric. These tacos are even smaller! Still very tasty though!

    Great authentic Mexican food and the cocktails are just amazing. We all had a very fun night. Try too book their Tequila Tasting Room as it is quiet an experience on its own.

    Went on sat night for a birthday party and the drinks were amazing and the place was full but not uncomfortably packed. Had a great time with my friends. I will be back often!

  • Great specialty Margaritas
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/28/2014
    The Manny margarita was delicious. If someone was just looking for cocktails I might send them here. I'd read other reviews of El Caballito before heading there so I was somewhat prepared for the shortcomings in the food department. But really a "tower" of salsa where each level is two tablespoons worth and a "bucket" of chips that had more lining paper than space for chips? In this thriving Toronto food hood? That's just not on. The ceviche was passable but not excellent. The tacos were tasty but teeny. Much better value elsewhere.

    The food was tasty at this restaurant, but that's the only good part of the night. We waited 30-45 minutes to receive each drink we ordered. We did a share-style meal with platters and each time the platter didn't have enough food for everyone. The vegetarian in our group was brought her food after everyone else was already done eating. And when it came time for bills it took 4 tries to get the accurate info on each one. I hope they can find a way to fix the service to match the food quality.

    Basically tried everything on this small, but very tasty menu. They are expanding the restaurant upstairs as well for a more full on dining experience. Can't wait for that; will definitely go back.
