Typical Portuguese Angus beef cuts grilled on charcoal to near perfection, with superb homemade deserts and their own ice tea, fresh every evening. The service was fast, but it was a week day. They have three sizes for steaks, so you only pay what you get. Leave room for the dessert, otherwise you'll regret it.

Ate here this evening on a whim and wasn't disappointed. All the family enjoyed the food, and my daughters food (children's portion of ribs) was served within 10 minutes. All the staff were very attentive and all in all this was a very good experience with some excellent steaks! Would definitely visit again if our holiday wasn't at an end.

Don't judge this steakhouse on the bad reviews, I have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant, the food & staff are fantastic. An extremely enjoyable evening if you just want to chill out & relax over your meal & a bottle of wine.. Our last meal in 'Don Toros' definitely finished our holiday on a high. Would... More

On our first night in Alvor we ate at Don Toro. We sat inside and were very cosy on one of the window seat tables. The waitress was very helpful and kind to our two children. We all ate different meals and agreed the quality of the steak/ribs was excellent. My Ribeye steak really was melt in the mouth. We... More

After eating fish meals for some nights we fancied a meat session. Our experience was not a good one. Waiters were slow on service and seemed unsure of items on the menu. The evening was enlivened by a very loud and public shouting match between chefs in the kitchen. It was beginning to sound like a 'Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares' programme.... More

We eat here three times on our holiday, each time having the 220g Ribeye Steak offer @ 10 Euros. The steak was cooked to perfection and the tastiest Ribeye I have ever had, honestly, without a doubt. The restaurant is clean with indoor/outdoor seating and the WCs are very clean and well kept.

We shared a couple of starters my husband had steak which was cooked as he asked...medium. My Daughter and I had the Americano... More

After my disappointing, greasy cheese and garlic crostini starter I decided to have the all you can eat ribs that came with homemade 'BBQ' sauce. I made it through two/three ribs but the quality of the meat was so poor I began to feel sick, the sauce was not BBQ at all! This restaurant is an overpriced ripoff, that even... More
