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.

Loved the Friday brunch

After a poor experience at dinner in November 2014, we went to the Friday Brunch and it was amazing ... the salads were great, the meat cuts done the way i asked for. it felt as if it was a different place all in all ... that is a Brunch you should try.

Toro Toro is a churrascaria so if you're not into meat, oh well. The offerings are mouthwatering and the service is very good. But my favorite thing was the ambience. There was a definite buzz.

I booked a non smoking table and we were allocated a small table in a corridor type section of the restaurant. The table seemed rather low and was not comfortable. There was therefore no ambience that I expected from a large restaurant, which I thought would be similar to the Budda Bar. The music was very loud which I expected... More

This place place is huge, great location, Marina is definetely my favorite place in Dubai, in the menu you will find influences from Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Argentina. I will recommend the mexican Ceviche and the peruvian Arroz con mariscos a la norteña. Probably the best latin-american restaurant in the city.

I socialize here regularly, the place is nice, the crowd seem fine and the service is normally OK. Been here numerous times, but prefer to eat at Buddha Bar. We return as usual, but mainly for drinks. Expensive.

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

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.
