Tapas style all the way in Glen Waverly, if i was there it goes to show the travel was worth it. The Black Toro is a must try. I don't live anywhere near this side of town and to travel the distance had to be worth my time and i can definitely say it sure was. Latin American tapas to share with a few friends is a great way to have a dinner catchup. Between 2 people we ordered 5 dishes to share and by the end of it i was satisfied and full. The time of each dish coming out was perfect. Enough time to enjoy one and have the next ready come out freshly cooked. I really like the mini burgers and the soft pulled pork wrap. I love pulled pork and The Black Toro has got it right. Juicy and full of flavour to enjoy with the coleslaw. It was a friday evening and The Black Toro was fairly busy. Given how far this restaurant is, i am surprised people make the travel to dine here. The service is wonderful, the staff make you feel important and they ensure you are comfortable andread more
A girls catch up where we shared a number of plates including pork belly sliders, grilled corn on the cob, guacamole, crispy soft shell crab taco to name a few dishes which were all delicious. Their mojito were also perfect on the warm evening. The service was a bit slow but worth the wait. It's more fine dinning and is definitely a restaurant that I would not take my children.
Been here a few times. Simular to Mamacita in the CBD but much better. Service is ok but could be improved. Food is delicious but pretty expensive. Few dollars cheaper and I would go there more often. Would recommend going here on a date or small group of friends and sharing the food.
I had high hopes with the Black Toro after hearing a lot of positives. They have two dining sessions - an early and a late one, the late one from about 8pm, so we booked in at 6.30pm. I loved the decor - lovely lighting, a wall painted with a bull, nice dark chairs and tables. We were seated promptly with menus but it took almost 15 minutes before any order was taken, so we had plenty of time to make our selections. To start we shared small some plates of spicy pulled pork tacos, twice cooked chicken wings and potato & chorizo croquettes. The tacos were rather nice, but still lacked a punch of flavour that I was waiting for, and wasn't really that spicy at all. The chicken wings were nice but basically tasted like they were deep fried and the supposed spicy peanut sauce was again, not spicy at all, and was merely ok in flavour. The croquettes were ok too but not something I'd be coming back for. We shared a wagyu rump served with chimichurri and what wasread more
