We had a group of 9 people with us and we all agreed that the food here was very good and we all ordered a second round of tapas! The service was great, friendly staff, and fun entertainment. Would definitely recommend!

We were a party of 10 and only had one waiter. He was a bit slow and did not asked if we need it separate checks, so it was a mess when it was time to pay. He also did not write anything down so we had to keep letting him know we were missing items. We also kept getting one tapas at a time, which is not great when you have a party of 10.

It was my mother birthday and we had an estimated 15 to 20 people; not sure. I feel like the place was very crowded, dark, and super noisy. If you wanted to talk to the person next to them you would have to go all the way to their ear and talk in a pretty loud voice. Even to hear the waiters we had to scream and so did they. Anyways, we got the cold and hot tapas, and personally I didn’t like them except for the flatbread with the cream cheese, I think it was. Like all the tapas weren’t the best, I ordered a ribeye steak with a side of fries. I asked for it well done and it was; but it had no flavor, no juice, it felt bland. There was some substance under it that was salted and just tasted disgusting. The worst part of the order was that when they brought the steak, they didn’t bring my fries. Making me wait more then 5 minutes for them. The fries were the only thing I ate, but they weren’t even that good either like the fries were toooo salty.My brothers and I ordered lemonade and the first drink was good. When we asked for refills, my brother said “it taste like lemonade and sprite”. My other brother didn’t care, and mine tasted extremely sour as they still had two lemon slices in. Me personally I don’t like my lemonade sour. My parents, parents friends and some other family member also though that the food was a waste of money. Maybe it was the food we ordered. Or maybe they really do suck. But personally I would not recommend coming there.

Nothing really special about this place. Drinks were expensive and very watered down, food was mediocre, our server Maria was great but the hostess/host, bartender and what appeared to be a manager, all didn’t really seem like they were familiar with customer service. Wouldn’t recommend and wouldn’t go back.

Simply love this place. The food is amazing. The service is great! Had dinner resentfully with my mom and sisters and we all loved it. We also celebrated my mom’s 75th birthday last October and reserved a space for about 30 people. The experience was so wonderful some of our guest are still talking about it.

Tapa Toro is our new favorite restaurant in Orlando. The service was outstanding. Our waiter, Tony was friendly and very attentive, providing helpful advice and explaining the menu. The tapas were all delicious and reminded us very much of our visits to Spain. We especially liked the gazpacho, the meatballs, grilled octopus (pulpo), garlic shrimp and stuffed peppers. We look forward to trying other dishes on our next visit.

We were in Orlando on vacation and discovered the unlimited mimosas on Yelp. Our server was outstanding. We never had to ask for anything she would just bring it to our table. The flamenco dancer was beautiful!!!! We definitely return when we go back to Orlando.

Over priced and food wasn't even that exceptional. Additionally, I had SEVERAL hairs in my drink and another hair on a plate. Absolutely disgusting. Will never be coming back. If you like flamingo dancers, great dancers but extremely too loud. You will not be able to have a conversation at your table.

First of all my Wife an i were looking for a good Seafood Paella that doesn’t taste like a publix cardboard, unfortunately that was the case the place has a food vibe but is not worth the money we spent 100$ and neither were satisfied with the food. They tried to make it better woth a free desert but thats not the main point of a Couple looking forward to a Great meal so Skip Skip Skip

We got seated right by where they were cooking and so we watched the paella being made. Despite how busy they were the service was great. We did Tapas so we ordered as we went.
