Went to Toro Dorado for a first time after having heard many good stories. Everything from the starters to the steaks were absolutely great! Service is very kind and friendly.

“Great Rib Eye”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

A work colleague and I stopped off for some red meat and were not disappointed , the range of steaks and prices is quite jaw dropping but when we settled on the inexpensive New Zealand Rib Eye 250 gram for around €20 we hoped that by choosing a lower price point we would not be let down with lower quality, but the Rib Eye was excellent, juicy and cooked to a perfect temperature (Medium for myself, and Medium Well for my colleague) we paired the steaks with garlic spinach & chips (French Fries) and a glass of Cab Sav. Service was ok, there were a number of large parties so that must be factored in, also we sat outside which in early April requires a jacket

“Very disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

I'm a regular customer in this restaurant as I usually visit Amsterdam once a year and I must have at least one meal there. I've rated it on TA on Aug. 2013 as best steak in town. I went there in Feb. 2014 and I was very disappointed service was slow owner and stuff were VERY unhelpful and food was not the same our meat was over cooked. I will not go there again due to the behavior of manager and stuff.

“Lovely food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We were due to eat at another restaurant that was closed due to electrical problems, so this place was recommended by the Concierge of the Crowne Plaza hotel, just across the road. We were celebrating a birthday, so decided to splash out. Although some of the steaks are very expensive, there are plenty of options at around 30-40 euros - we both had scallops for starters, followed by steaks, and I had lobster too. The service was great, very prompt and informal - I had chips and a bottle of tomato sauce appeared without asking - they know the tastes of their customers!. We shared a bottle of good wine and they present us with a birthday candle and sang 'Happy Birthday' which really topped off a great evening. We would definitely visit again - and might save up for the really special steaks.
