My wife ordered a Stake and when it arrived that was it a stake and nothing else, after waiting a while she called the waiter and asked for Veg etc he replied you didn't order any. I had Lamb and that came with everything. While we were... read more

Dear James, you are talking NOT about Don Toro Steak House. We do not serve Lamb and we never do things you are talking about. Our steaks are coming with baked roasted potatoes and salad which are already included in steak price. Have a good holiday and hope to see you in Don Toro More

We visited Don Toro last week whilst on holiday in Alvor. The first visit was excellent. The three of us had different steaks of different level of cook and all three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I asked for fries rather than the default roasted mini potatoes which many people have complained about on TripAdvisor. This was finished with... More

Having visited this restaurant two years ago I expected a similar experience this time round.The food and ambience didn't live up to the previous visit.The steak was good,but not excellent,my friends chicken was disappointing. It appeared that there had been an ownership change and Don Toro does not have the good vibe of old.
