Was not blown away by this plave,....nothing terrible about it, but over priced and food was not cooked very well at all, preferred the old son toros further up the village "o toro," but must say overall wasn't terrible just not good enough for the prices they charge.

Myself, husband and 10 year old ate here twice on our stay. We do love the fish in Alvor but are meat lovers at heart and this place does not disappoint. Our first night, we had starters of chicken wings, ribs and garlic prawns. Then all three of us had rib eye steak. We also had 2 soft drinks and... More

We were first in the restaurant and thought if would be a speedy service, as entertaining hungry kids waiting for food can be a nightmare. We waited around 40 minutes from ordering until our meal arrived. Food, a range of steaks and salad were ok, but not as good value as others we've had during stay. Left feeling a bit... More

We first went to a place called churrasqueira , it wouldn't be opening until 7pm so carried on walking, came upon Don Toro, liked the menu and fancied some ribs, the place was very quite, but being that it was only 6:45pm I'm not surprised my family like to eat early, wife had a chicken and mushroom dish and both...

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
