Worth the Trip from Glasgow
A really great restaurant! Attentive staff, amazing fresh food, great space and really good value for money. I don't live in Toronto, but will definitely be back.

Creative menu,everything intensely
Creative menu,everything intensely flavourful. We enjoyed every dish. The kale with lemon garlic was a delightful surprise; wild mushrooms were as good as you could hope for and the stuffed dates were miraculous. Paella was excellent. Our server was charming, attentive and unpretentious-- one of those rare restaurant folks who make a positive contribution to the overall experience. The only drawback was an unusually raucous group of diners whose noise level was pretty disruptive.

Wonderful tapas spot. Flavourful
Wonderful tapas spot. Flavourful dishes and attentive service. Everything we had was good - spanish tortilla, arugala salad, lamb meatballs and pepper stuffed with oxtail!

Excellent food though portions
Excellent food though portions seemed small even for a tapas restaurant. Really appreciated a free dessert when the kale proved to be extremely salty. Great service and atmosphere.

Best tapas I've ever had
Avocado fries? Genius. I did not regret a single dish I ordered. The food was glorious and the service was great. A bit pricey but I'll be back for sure.

Went with a group of 5 and
Went with a group of 5 and enjoyed every moment. The host was very informative and explained all the dishes, the restaurant favourites and suggested items based on or likes (which we had many) and a few dislikes. A good selection of wines and cocktails which everybody enjoyed.
We started we the Avacado Fries and we ordered those another 4 times, they are one of the best dishes!! We also ordered the ceviche, lamb meatball, oysters, chickpeas and octapus, batatas, this weird date dish, and oxe tail. Everything was fantastic. My favorite was the ceviche and the meatballs. Ceviche was not too lemony as they ususally are and had some corn stuff that gave it a crunch. Meatballs had a mint chutney on it and was delicious. A MUST VISIT!

Torito has been on my list for years and it hit every note during our weekday visit. We got pomegranate cava to start, which sounded more interesting than it tasted, but I think next time I would opt for sangria or a cocktail.
The avocado fries were amazing, the ceviche was delightful, and the Andalucian chickpea stew was thick and hearty. The salad was heavy on the greens and we found a bit overpriced, although it was nice to have some raw greenery on the table. Next time I think we would rather spend the money on the cheese plate or another dish.
Our server was personable and friendly. The back patio is small, wooden, and minimalist, great for the summer weather. We're looking forward to going back!

Really nice dining experience. We really enjoyed the dates wrapped in bacon and both desserts. I also enjoyed the Sangria. Service was prompt and friendly.

Small dishes and big taste
Creative, tasty, satifsfying food. Be adventurous with the specials and you won't be disappointed. And if the weather is warm, you must sit on the patio.

Came here with some friends and found the place to be amazing. I have been to Spain and I have tried several tapas places in the GTA. None can compare and I dare say the tapas are on par with the ones Ì tried in Spain.
Well done! Keep up the good work. I will definitely be coming back to this place and have already recommended to several other tapas lovers!

Share small plates!
We most enjoyed the mushrooms, lamb meatballs, and the stuffed dates were stunningly good. Excellent gluten-free dining experience in a vibrant neighborhood!

Even better than in Spain
Every dish was prepared with attention and differed completely from each other. The chorizo tasted like Spanish paprika and the lamb meatballs were spicy with a sweet tomato sause. The stuffed dates were a favorite as were the avocado fries. The ceviche was wonderful!!
The staff were terrific, taking care to avoid gluten containing foods.
We will be back!

Terrific Tapas at Toritos
We had a terrific experience here, on their beautiful back deck, enjoying wonderful food. The food is better, more creative, and much tastier than it reads on the menu: it seems very authentic and there was nothing that we didn't love. We're going back for sure.

I made a reso on Open Table the day before and got a confirmation email yet when we arrived to the restaurant my reso was not there. I'm not sure if that is Open Table's or the restaurant's fault but needless to say it wasn't busy and we got sat almost immediately. The initial service was slow but we ended up with a very friendly and very informed server who help us enjoy the best of the menu. I am a server and my father who I was dining made a sarcastic comment about the wait for our last dish and I enjoyed the servers sarcastic yet witty remark back and my parents actually laughed. I had a really great time there and posted the restaurant on my Facebook highly recommending it to my friends. Awesome place for a date. Will be back again

The unpretentious surroundings and the excellent service make this a Kensington market gem. The food was excellent, reasonably priced and good for any occasion. I especially like the white bass ceviche...would hope to see more ceviche in the future. I would gladly come back.

Worth the wait!
Always seems hard to get a reservation...options are always 6pm or 9:15...even 2 weeks in advance...so yes this time we went at 6pm for a super early dinner so we could try it and it was super super yummy! Highly recommend the ceviche and the fig/manchego cheese dishes....
