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.

Not bad but not great either

Food is decent but not wonderful and service is is definitely on the slower side. With a little bit of effort it could be oh so much better and its number on tripadvisor is probably a true reflection of its current standing.

Highly recommend the 'Combo for 2 people'.......every bite of every cut was truly mouthwatering.

The food at this restaurant was excellent, the service was good and as we had a two year old with us changing facilities a must. We ate out at a few places in Alvor but this was the only one that we visited with this facility, so all in all a very family friendly place to eat

Ielizaveta P, Manager at Don Toro, responded to this review

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
