    Decent food, bit overpriced for what it is. Music doesn’t really suit the setting. Wait staff aren’t overly attentive. Overall not a bad experience.

    We have had previous meals at The Black Toro that were amazing. The food was average on the night, expensive and the variety did not meet the expectation we had from our previous experiences. We arrived earlier than our booking and were still reminded 4 times before our orders were taken about the time we needed to vacate the table.

    The staff was welcoming and the ambiance really nice. I have been waiting to try Black Toro for a while so was very happy to be celebrating an occasion with some friends. Unfortunately, I wasn’t impressed with the Barramundi. The green/red paste had no taste. It was small portion for a main meal. The tacos, slider and salad looked good so maybe I will try something else next time.

    Very quick service with getting food however was a bit slow with getting plates cleared and drinks. Enjoy the smaller plates however disappointed with mains. The seating is very tight and hard to manoeuvre around.

    Too rushed, food is nice but dinner was rushed and we were told after 90 minutes that the table was booked after us even though the booking is meant to be for 2 hrs. We were kicked out after 1 hr 45minutes so they could get the next people in.

    Food was amazing, great gluten free options. Service was good but placed next to the door and it was freezing, not to mention the door kept opening.

    We had the full fiesta banquet, great way to try so many dishes & we were very full at the end. Charging $14 for a mocktail was very disappointing & overpriced. Service friendly.

    We have eaten at Black Toro a number of times, however I was disappointed last night. The food is always very enjoyable, however I found the overall cost was rather expensive, for tapas style food. There was 3 of us, we had one drink each, and the food was over $200.00. This was our choice, however, expensive, for tapas style options. The restaurant was very cold, and I commented to the lady who had looked after us and she was rather surprised. The temperature was very noticeable when you came back from the bathroom to the front of the restaurant. I had originally asked not to sit where the breeze from the door would affect us, however that was not the issue. Where we were sat at the front of the restaurant it is very cold. It was suggested upon leaving that we ask for a table further up in the restaurant when we book. This however could have been an option last night, as there were a number of vacant tables. The food is delicious, however the warmth of the restaurant was disappointing.

About the restaurant

Charge!

The Black Toro opened its doors in 2012 and hasn’t looked back since. This restaurant was created with the desire to bring a higher level of dining to the bustling Kingsway strip, and is inspired by the colorful eateries of Latin America. Fore fronted by Head Chef Garen Maskal, The Black Toro aims to provide a new and fresh approach to Hispanic cuisine reworked to a Modern Australian palate. The dining room is classy and brought to life by the mural of a large black toro painted on one wall. The menu moves with the seasons and always has a fresh focus - start with a few small plates before diving into a large bowl of barbecued chili chicken with cumin caramel, toasted sesame and Mexican pilaf. With knowledgeable staff working the floor we’re sure you will have an amazing experience entailing a combination of innovative food, clever cocktails and a boutique wine list - what could be better?

Best dish: Crispy pork belly, guajillo chilli glaze & fragrant herbs.
