There were 3 of us and we just ordered a lot of tapas and shared them all. Most of the ones our server recommended were fabulous! Unfortunately there was a private party that booked the entire bar, so we couldnt sit there and instead were all jammed into the dining area. But, the food was good and we'd definitely eat there again!

It was our first time in Tapa Toro and our waitress Maria was awesome. She explained the menu to us and recommended some of her favorites too. We very much liked the ambiance and decor which made us feel in Spain. The food was delish! That paella was too die for and the prices were very fair. Honestly I expected to pay more for what we ate and drank. Loved it, had a great time and the flamenco lady was really fun too.

restaurant amid I-dr crowds of tourists. compare to my own noshing across Iberia way-back-when; kitchen flavoring, prep and plating were easy to digest. Table atnd Hector menu spiel, and server teams timing for prepping table for next courses, quite good execution. good experience overall including valet interactions. however, not on short list while so many excellent possibilities await. Orlando so much more than I-dr and Disney Bubble. disclosure - decade mystery diner for Darden, focus on service and ambiance.

Fun vibe and wonderful food. The $35 tasting menu with wine pairing - fantastic and good value. IMO - best seat is at the curved Paella chef's area. Service is excellent. GIANNA is awesome - she knows everything about the menu and took care of all the details. As for the vibe - well, you'll feel it. Go and see what I mean. The word you might struggle to remember is "Castagnettes" but now that you know, you'll impress your friends! ;)

Was looking for a unique and romantic place for a double date. Walked in and was greeted right away. The place was very nice and romantic. I made a reservation on open table because it’s always busy but we were only the second table there. I was like yesssss not too noisy for our date. First we started with pork belly and it was amazing!!! Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It worked well with apple sauce and arugula salad. Then of course I have to order paella... why?! Because that what they are known for, but it takes 40 mins. I didn’t mind because our server informed us ahead of time. My first bite was not to my liking because the seafood was beyond well. The mussels was a size of a pea and the shrimp was a size of a quarter and the squid was basically rubbery. Very disappointed for a $45 paella and this is what they are known for. The person in charge did come out and asked what can he do for us but we are not there to get free food we just want amazing food. Our server was amazing!!! She was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu.

A little overpriced. Funny, how the Flamenco dancer did not approach my table. My wife and I were celebrating our 30th Anniversary. We felt discriminated by the dancer, she did approach another table with younger customers! Also, the waitress was nice, but did NOT established any conversation with us.

The only reason I'm giving this place a 2 is because they had good service and the flamenco show was nice. Our waitress did a good job at explaining the menu and going over which were the best choices for our huge party of 9. As for the food and drinks, we were very disappointed to say the least. I'll give that a 0. The sangria was weak and the paella smelled terrible and tasted as it smelled. We paid $55 PER PERSON and it was definitely a waste. On top of that $33 for their watered down sangria. Definitely a tourist trap. Please take your money and go elsewhere!!

De visita en Orlando hicimos planes de última hora buscando cenar tapas españolas decidimos ir a Tapa Toro. La comida no es auténtica española. El “show de flamenco” es sólo una chica bailando entre las mesas y la música que tocan no es flamenco. Cuando nos dimos cuenta que nos sentaron en una mesa donde no podríamos ver el “show”, pedimos que nos cambiaran a otra donde pudiéramos observar mejor. No quisieron hacerlo pese a que el lugar estaba si acaso al 30% de su capacidad. El volumen de la música estaba demasiado alto y no permitía entablar la conversación. Teníamos mucha hambre así que comimos rápido y nos fuimos. Definitivamente no lo recomiendo.

Our family ate there on our vacation. It was fun to sample all the different small plates, trying new foods, and everyone liked most everything. Service was excellent. The A/C was broken, which made it uncomfortably warm (we were given small complementary cucumber gin and tonics). It was too loud, and the music was turned up even louder during the flamenco dancing, which was entertaining.
