Anyone been? Worth going? Recommendations?

  1. I'm bumping this one, as per the thread on tapas in Toronto today, and Juniper's question of Spanish tapas v.s. small-plate dining.

    I'm looking for authentic and traditional Spanish tapas and when I walked by Cayo Coco last week the menu looked like it would fit the bill: Olives. Serrano ham. Fried mushrooms. Omelette... oh baby!

      I asked about it in a different thread last year and spigot replied:

      Cayo Coco's kind of meh; the food is cheapish and passable. I've only been once, and at about 9.30-ish it seemed to turn into a bit of a nightclub, with a dozen people standing at the bar checking each other out. That was slightly weird.

        *LOL* Thanks for the heads up, that's good to know!

          isn't that the definition of a "supper club"? you have dinner upstairs and then you go downstairs after for dancing.

          i know their menu was originally created by a latin chef but i think he's not with them anymore.

      2. I've been to Cayo Coco before too on a Friday night, and the owners sat down to have a drink with us on the ONE table patio. It was OKAY. the food was pretty cheap and decent, but not the best tapas i've tried. I really dislike the area ...right smack in the middle of cluburbia with the S & M crowd who come to the big city to party, act like fools and then go back home to the burbs.
        Try Coca on Queen West... I was there last week and the food was pretty good. They serve tapas and pinchos (from northern Spain) Service was a bit absentminded, but overall a good experience. Also try Embrujo Flamenco on the Danforth complete with dance entertainment. Make reservations though. This place gets booked up fast.
