“Great Steak- forget the starters”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We visited Vilamoura at the end of September 2013, and this was the first restaurant we ate at. It is located right at the entrance to the marina so very easy to find, and has a nice sheltered outside eating area with trendy heaters. We ordered calamari and mozzarella sticks to start, and Argentinian Steak burgers for main. The starters weren't great unfortunately- the calamari was reconstituted rather than fresh- which considering the area is renowned for its fresh fish- was a real disappointment. We rationalised the restaurants main selling point/ focus is the steak, which did not disappoint! Great tasting steak and well cooked.

The service was fine and the restaurant clean. The food was reasonably priced for the area and the steak burger definitely makes it worth a visit.

“1st visit great, 2nd visit not so great”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Our first visit to Don Toro the service was excellent (lovely blonde dutch lady) - very friendly and quick, the steak was cooked to perfection. Our second visit unfortunately my steak was over cooked and my husbands was chewy, the service was slow and less than friendly (not the blonde lady this time unfortunately). We were dissapointed after our first visit. Beware the sauce to go with the steak is 1Euro for the smallest pot ever, there is not enough sauce in my opinion. Also I had the ladies steak and my husband had the Don Toro steak - they both looked the same size although mine was cheaper - so gentlemen - get the the ladies steak - you wont regret it and you'll save some Euros!

“Best steak restaurant in Vilamoura”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Spent some time in Vilamoura Portugal recently, tried one evening to get a table in the Don Toro restaurant, it was so busy, a very good sign of what good food is served there, disappointed we could not get in that evening. Another evening we tried again, lucky this time very busy, the service was excellent, the price was very reasonable, a great choice on the menu, not just steak, but that was what we were there for. Cooked to perfection, asked for more chips no problem. Booked for another night enjoyed it so much, highly recommend it

“Great steak!”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I ate at don toro on the first night of our 10 day stay in villamoura and it set the standard for steaks! Fabulous steak, served with a nicely dressed salad and a choice of dips. We arrived late and were greeted kindly and our food certainly did not reflect the time of night, much care was still taken. A must visit!
