Delicious food and attentive staff

Visited here with girlfriends whilst staying at Grosvenor House. We shared several of the small plates. I highly recommend the tuna tataki and the sea bass. Absolutely delicious. We sampled the cocktails too with my friend commented that it was the best margarita she'd ever had. The service is... read more

We were all tired and wanted something close. Tapas always fits so we chose Toro Toro. The food was some of the most varied and tasty tapas with a heavy leaning to South American rather than Spanish. The wait staff were great, the head waiter for our section (Jitesh??) realised we had over ordered and suggested ways the kitchen could... More

Yes, there are many great restaurants in Dubai, but unlike some other reviewers I believe this one is at the top level. The food was fantastic, service top notch and selection of wines very inviting to come for another tasting! Highly recommended!

Try the ceviches and the beef empanadas. Both are really good. Actually the chicken wings were OK but the tuna whatever was quite good. The lamb on skewer sticks was interesting – just slightly underdone, and quite on the right side of juicy. We had gone as part of a large corporate party, so things just came our way. Service...

Ambience ok ( the usual darkness which requires you a flashlight to glimpse at the menu) in Dubai marina. Service ok Meat way too seasoned/ cooked ( had rib eye and parillada for two) Entrees ok ( cheviche huachang and panadas de lomo ) but ordinary Overall, given the price and other alternatives in Dubai, not really worth it

My husband and I went for dinner at Toro toro. We were greated with warm smiles and welcoming faces. We started with drinks in the bar, followed by a lovely meal in the restaurant. The food was perfection, the waiter never missed a beat, our water-glasses was always full. Thank you for a wonderful.

Toro Toro is a classical Dubai upper class restaurant. They will warmly welcome you, and provide decent service. Is the kind of place that a personality, or a local will get the extra inch that a normal visitor won't receive, but that is very much into the F&B Dubai way of doing things. Consequently you will get a waiter that... 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.
