From the excellent service to the fresh and tasty food, this place does not need much except praise. This is not to mention that it is moderately priced and nestled in the easy-going area of Kensington Market. Definitely worth a visit!

Cheap and so tasty! I could tell everything was home made from corn tortillas to the delicious strawberry margaritas!

Unfortunately, we couldn't enjoy the outdoor seats because it was full which is understandable for a Saturday night with beautiful weather.

Highly recommend: fish tacos and their guacamole (come with homemade corn tortillas)

An authentic Mexican, family-run restaurant. Great service and amazing, delicious food. Well worth a trip to Kensington Market area for their guacamole and tacos!

I love their food! Very authentic. The prices are reasonable, I got a good size guac & 5 small soft tacos for $21 including taxes and tip. They don't cheap out on the chips that comes with the guac. Good selection of gluten free items.

Although it was busy, the service was quick and efficient.

I love going there when in Kensington Market!

Walking through Kensington Market in Toronto we spotted El Trompo and, noticing that it was quite busy, thought it worth further investigation.

We were not disappointed, the food was first class, the service excellent and the prices reasonable.

Well worth a visit if you like Mexican food.
