“Wont be returing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

My Partner & I ate here the first year Don Toro opened in Alvor & the food was quite good. Good enough infact that we decided to return on our last visit to Alvor. On this occasion however the food was not so good. I found the steak to be quite chewy & the potatoes/veg to have a considerable quantity of oil included - which I did'nt order. Maybe the staff were having an off night but considering they still charged 65 euro for the both of us I wont be returning. There's too many places that are prepared to offer better food at lower prices to have to eat here! Service was good, but the food really let the place down. If your going to charge 20 euro for a steak then let it be a good one.

“Good ....but there's better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

Nice food and great service but a bit on the pricey side compared to the family run establishments nearby. Don't think it's fair of other people to downrate just because of someone else's screaming kid though!!
