I had the rib eye Dakota and it was very good. The mushrooms and the onion rings where good too. Next time I'll try the surf & turf!

My wife and I visited El Toro during a short trip to Cluj. The restaurant was not too difficult to find and is situated on the first floor opposite a cathedral under construction. It is located just outside the main city centre about ten minute walk from Museum Square. My wife and I both had steak, my wife taking the... More

I had a nice lunch here just before my flight to Amsterdam via Bucharest. As a starter I had a tasty and slightly spicy tomato soup. As a main I had Argentinian rib-eye. Both well prepared. I didn't take the time for anything else. If you need a comparison with the other steakhouse nearby, read my review on TA.

Nice Ambiance, good prices, we had the lamb chops, that were tasty , a little under cooked for my wife's taste but fine by me (for 200g around 7 lamb chops around 60+ lei). I had the baby ribs, which were delicious,

1st visit here. The steak is fantastic. We had the argentinian fillet steak which was tender and perfectly cooked. The waiter was friendly and had a good knowledge of wine and help us select a perfect match for the steak without being over pricy. The restaurant is on 1st floor of a block and the ambiance lacks a little but... More

Meat is the way to go. I had medium rare tenderloin that was very tender and perfectly grilled. The sides were all good, especially the garlic mushrooms and spinach with parmesan. A very casual place with a warm atmosphere.

Discrete atmosphere and decorations. Appropriate for discussions in a small group of friends or business partners. Great service an perfect steaks seasoned with pickles and fine wines.
