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.

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.

I am known by friends , family and work colleagues as a very fussy eater . The food is fabulous and I am on my second run through the menu. I unfortunately have had to extend my stay in Portugal because my wife has been hospitalised and therefore having somewhere friendly to go each evening with the guarantee of good... More

I had high hopes for this restaurant as the interior was warm and cosy and the service was good. The steak and house sauce was very tasty, however - thats all can say. Overall the meal had no panache, but I suppose for the price you can't expect much. However we had eaten up the road at the Bella Luna... More

Popped in on spec. My husband and I had steaks and our son had chicken. All delicious, cooked to perfection. Service excellent without being pushy. Reasonably priced. Would recommend and would return if back in Alvor.

The wife and I had a very nice experience in Don Toro from beginning to end. Steaks were superb and the desserts were gorgeous. We did have a little wait but it was busy at the time, so no big deal. There was a lady called Caroline serving us and we chatted with her for quiet some time (when she... More
