Great food and service. Highly recommend. Reserve well in advance if you want to get your preferred time.
The highlight of our weekend in the city. Atmosphere was lively and fun, staff were beyond friendly and knowledgeable- I mean EVERYONE- the hostesses, waiter, food delivery staff- every single person was fabulous! Food - out of this world delicious.
Will absolutely be back!!
My husband and I there for dinner. So much to choose from on the menu, so we just asked waiter, David, to pick for us. He did an amazing job, bringing us small plates, one after another. He didn't try to pick most expensive and he kept checking if we had enough. All items were delicious - fresh and tasty. Thank you.
I had a great time at El Catrin, the food and service was great. They made my birthday celebration even better. Thank you for allowing me to have a great time with my friends.
Took my kids iver March Break. Short wait for table. Excellent service and the manager came to speak with my 10/12 yr old kids. Fish tacos delish, guacamole amazing. Churros decadent. Never disappointed.
Nice environment but very expensive food for what it is.
We absolutely loved our experience here. Our server was awesome and made honest recommendations for us. Definitely worth a visit!!
The food is delicious and creative. The
Service was excellent- thank you Jose!
Terrific Atmosphere; Wonderful Waiter (Ricardo); Amazing Food -- Beautiful presentation to top it off.
Busy but not CRAZY busy on a Wednesday evening -- make a reservation.

Very welcoming staff both at the door and with our server.
Pamela made our visit very enjoyable! She was very friendly and funny!
We had mixed feelings about our experience. The service was great and the food flavours were good. I'm vegetarian and my partner is not so we ordered mostly vegetarian with a few meat items. We were told food would come in any order and that the meat may come first which it did. At other tapas restaurants food has been nicely spaced and if there was a meat dish, a veggie dish always came with it. We also felt packed in like sardines. When the people at the table beside us left they actually had to move their table so there was enough space for them to leave. It wasn't possible to have a private conversation.
Barely ordered any food and bill was huge. Waitress seemed annoyed we were a big group. Table was sticky. Greeting and explanation of menu was not good
Very nice food and environment
Absolutely amazing drops and service for dinner this past Saturday. I will be back soon for sure to taste more of their delicious menu!
Great food great server great atmosphere
We had been trying to get to El Catrin for years - it was worth the wait and definitely lived up to its reputation. Upon arrival the waiter explained the food would best be enjoyed tapas style, just having everyone share all plates - that is the way to do it. We took his advice on many of his recommendations - everything was absolutely delicious. Everyone had a different favorite but not one dish disappointed. The decor is wonderful and Jose the waiter was great, knew the dishes and added to the celebration of our evening. We will definitely be back.
Everything was amazing as always! Food is great, best margaritas. Moderately priced but definitely worth it. Baja tacos are worth the trip themselves!
We had excellent service and attention to detail and enjoyed the amazing tasting menu. Would definitely go again and loved the ambiance of the place - fantastic art!
Always amazing food and the service is excellent! The atomospehere is eclectic and fun!
Amazing, food, service - a wonderful night out trying different drinks and yummy food. Top score in my books.
One dish came way later than the others. The excuse offered was rather unusual and defied common sense.
very expensive. if it were just the food itself it wouldn't be worth the price (there's much better Mexican style food in Toronto) however part of the price is made up for the experience that you get. I'd recommend it once per year.
Good service, but slow at the front door (we waited 15 min to be served)
If people reserve a table they should not be waiting 15-20 minutes to be seated, specially when there is plenty of open tables.
Food was excellent, servers knowledgable great tequila menu!
The quality of food is not that great which is a big disappointment but otherwise everything was great
I spent a lot of money but didn’t came to great value for food order only!!!
Fantastic Latin themed restaurant in the heart of the city. Creative fusion of north and south American food. Definite must try.
One of my favourite restaurants in Toronto! Going to dinner here is such a fun experience - also the food is outstanding!
The place is beautiful, different and great atmosphere. It was packed as usual. We started with the guacamole, it was just ok, not great. We had family style platter parrillada with meat for the table plus esquites (corn) and Molotes. We also ordered fish and pork tacos and sopes too. We ended with churros. Food all tasted great and we were also very excited about the margaritas. I love their margaritas. We ordered a pitcher for the “girls” to drink there were 3 of us but it turned out one of us couldn’t drink so a whole pitcher for two of us! Woo hoo! Didn’t think we could finish it but we did, and I honestly believe there weren’t 10’shots in there like there was supposed to be, we weren’t even buzzed!
Now that was a disappointment considering it cost $60 and our meal was over $600 with tip!! Your food is good, ambience great but please don’t skim on my drinks :( guys we’re still hungry after so we ordered them some more tacos. Everything is tapas one or two bites at most so keep that in mind.
Our waiter Jose was very personal and gave us amazing service. It was an amazing experience.
Girls'night out and we ordered the Chef's tasting menu...fabulous. margarita was amazing!!! Can't wait to go back
A great snowy Saturday with my 3 grown sons. El Catrin provided the perfect backdrop to a really fun time with a lot of excellent food.
I’ll be back with my friends.
Great service... great guacamole !!
Small portions but quality was not compromised!
Will be back again for more :)
A bit overpriced for the actual size of the meals.
Guacamole is great, the rest of the menu not that much.
Fantastic place and food ! Would definitely recommend.
The tacos were amazing the scallops witht the coconut not so much. Spent like 100 dollars on food and went home still hungry so value is low. Still and experience to go there
Excellent service and wonderful atmosphere!
Great atmosphere and food was very good - lots of interesting flavors and nicely prepared/presented. Server was fabulous with great recommendations. A bit more expensive than some places (in part because many items are tapas style so you need to order more than you might initially think), but worth it
Just an ok place!! Food is not special.
