Toro Toro by famed Latin American Chef Richard Sandoval spans over two floors on the marina's edge. Poised to turn up the heat considerably in the city's already famed dining scene, it pioneers tastes from Buenos Aires to Sao Paulo and offers a multitude of Pan Latin dining experiences paired with an infinite Cachaca Bar.

Not a typical churrascaria, not a steak house - something excellent, in between!

Had a very nice meal at Toro Toro, celebrating my Mum's birthday. We arrived around 730 and the restaurant was relatively quiet. However, by 830 it was packed! The lighting was a little dark on our table (as we didn't have any overhead lamps) but on the whole the atmosphere was very nice... read more

Found Toro Toro two years ago so we visited again and where not disappointed. The bar is a great people watching venue and is well stocked.. Steaks to die for and the ambiance was very good. Will be back soon.

You won't remember much of your dinner, as the menu is kind of confusing, with all these mix of South american names and terms... and no dish will be nor typical nor particular to impress you. It's just a mix of ingredients that make it looks "South American" -maybe- but if the place was called differently, you probably could say... More

Loved this restaurant so much, honestly couldn't give it a high enough review. The staff were so lovely and friendly, they were great - especially Jerson on the bar and Sabrina our waitress. They knew so much about the menu, and encouraged us to try special dishes and new cocktails. This is a definite must if you're going to Dubai.

Everyting is totally Dubai here! Outstanding hostesses, cocktail car, good and trendy food. Don't forget the bar upstairs. Be aware that there is a door policy and dress code. However this makes the crowd only better.

This is one of my favourite places. Even though it's not cheap, it meets the price standard of Dubai. Starting with drinks, the bar is beautifully lit, the drinks menu has so many choices, from south american beers, to alcoholic (or non-alcoholic) cocktails. Try the "Isla Bonita" for example, or ask one of the friendly and knowledgeble bartenders! As for... More

Met up with a friend here for dinner last night and was so glad I chose to visit Toro Toro. Nice ambiance to begin with. I wasn't too pleased with the table for two slammed against the wall which was rather suffocating and asked if we could be reseated. The hostess arranged for that instantly! The mobile Caipirinha bar is... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
