DON TORO - the highest quality steaks in Algarve! Don Toro Alvor is just moved to the new more spacious location with nice big outside terrace, right in front of the school, close to the pharmacy. Don Toro has earned a reputation for great service, great food and great staff. Perfect for a romantic dinner for two, an evening with the family or social meal with friends.

Nice atmosphere, good steaks

We sat out on the patio and they started a heater as soon as we arrived. Blankets were a nice touch on every chair. We ordered ribs and the striploin, both cooked very well. Affordable and delicious house red wine.

Fantastic meal had here in November with my family while staying in Alvor. Due to end of season great prices! Steaks were delicious as were sauces. Even my fussy eater daughter enjoyed her meal. Would recommend a visit while in Alvor. The restaurant was very busy, a good sign on a quiet November night!!!!

Very good steakhouse. They serve Angus and Hereford meat. We had the filet Mignon with chimichurri sauce, oven roasted potatoes and mixed salad. Great food. To finish we had a nice local dessert.

Friendly service, but attention got a bit lost when the restaurant became busy! The steaks were very good, and well cooked to order with nice sauces/accompaniments. Nice bottle of house red wine too.

Found the staff to be very attentive and helpful with the menu! The steaks were priced at 33 euros each, not cooked the way we requested. Not sure hat we would return too many other places to eat for better quality and value close by!

Although I have visited Alvor many times I have never visited don toro before it is slightly of the Maine walkway but so worth a visit the best food by far. So far I have had both fish and steak can't choose between them. Excellent and attentive staff.

Had dinner here late evening and opted to sit outside. Seating area is very nice and comfortable. Service was very good with staff friendly and helpful. There is some good offers on the menu if you're interested in having a steak. Food was ok, not amazing. Our major complaint is about dogs wandering in and out, walking up to the... More

I had rib eye cooked medium with peppercorn sauce. It came with roasted potatoes and salad. It was soo tasty, really good steak and large portions. My partner had spare ribs which were huge and he struggled to finish them (not often is he defeated by a meal) which came with chips and salad. The ribs were dry and could... More
