Reviving our last trip

Finally, we could visit this place, and after our last vacation, we were craving authentic tapas. We couldn't be luckier. We sat at the bar and tried the patatas bravas or big potatoe pieces topped with spicy homemade romanesco sauce. The octopuss -the two versions on the menu- were very tasty and... read more

$40 per person paid for around 10 dishes. All very tasty and beautifully presented. Did not leave hungry. Servers were very helpful and attentive. My wife had the sangria which was dry but once you got used to it it was really nice.

Could not wait to bring my husband and son to this place, based on my experience here last year. We ordered the chef's tasting menu, just like last year. It's quite reasonably priced at $40 per person. And they tell u you'll get 9-12 courses, but don't get too excited. Each taste is just that.... A taste. Some were descent,... More

My husband and I went here for date night and got there shortly after it opened and had no wait. We got a little table tucked over in the corner of a side room and it was very romantic and cute. The food was very good, though it's extremely meat heavy. I don't recommend this place for vegetarians, but if... More

We really enjoyed our night at Toro Bravo. Sangria and octopus are must. Charcuterie board and cheese board make a good combination too. Overall great experience!

This place puts the tapas game to another level. The best restaurant by far I've been to in Portland. It's definitely a number one spot to hit up and is a must to visit.I recommend getting the tasting menu which should be enough food even if you're a big guy like me. I ended up ordering some Paella and ended... More

I just returned from a conference in Portland. Our first night there a group of us (12) headed out to Toro Bravo for tapas. Two of us had done the same at another conference (different town) and we like to have everyone order two dishes and we all share. Well, this group had several vegetarians, a vegan and several people... More

Such great tapas and cocktails. Get there early - it's small and gets crowded. Worth a stop. Everything we tried was delicious. Surprisingly reasonable bill for the quality of food.

We got to the restaurant 20 minutes after it opened and had an hour and a half wait. Places that don't take reservations drive me nuts. We waited at the BBQ place down the street after a few of the other bars nearby didn't quite cut it. We were seated and seen by our waitress right away. We ordered some... More
