    We always make a point of dining here when we come to Toronto - the food has so much flavour and is full character. The margaritas are superb and the ambiance is fun and energetic.

    El Catrin is amazing. Great food, drinks & service. We recently had Pamela as our server and she went over and above to ensure we had a great experience. I highly recommend El Catrin. We will definitely be going back for some margaritas & tacos.

    Service was fair, our water glasses have been empty for most of the time, had to ask twice to get more water. Food was tasty but I wouldn't say there's high value for money as we paid $100 per person for 2 appetizers and 2 main dishes and food was not worth that much as food wasn't that authentic. Ambiance was pleasant and interior decoration pretty nice. Overall I'd recommend for sure but with the caveat that there shouldn't be too high of expectations.

    Thank you for giving us a try, George, and taking the time to provide your feedback. While we're pleased to hear you appreciated the ambiance and interior decoration, it is disappointing to hear that our dishes and service failed to meet your expectations and our standards. Please know, your glasses should have been consistently filled with water and for that, we deeply apologize. In regards to our prices, please know that while we understand prices are subjective, we feel ours are a great balance between doing what's right by our business while reflecting the quality of our ingredients. We hope you'll consider us the next time you're looking to treat yourself. Best Regards, Stuart K.
