It was average. The server was good, but the food wasn’t the greatest. I’ve eaten at many tapas place like Jaleo by Jose Andres. That is a great restaurant, tapa toro was just ok. Also hard to find.

Terrible paella and over priced. Tight seating, terrible greaters at door, flamingo dancers danced 5 minutes and sat by small stage on cell phones. Overall, AVOID THIS PLACE!

Christmas Dinner with the family while we were in FL!
Paella was amazing and my son who is a picky eater even tried something new at the servers request! We were there as a family of 6 at 830pm on Christmas Day! Our server was patient and attentive despite the busy holiday!
Food was amazing!!!
Flamenco dancer was exciting and beautiful.
All and all a wonderful experience. Thank you for making our non-traditional holiday wonderful.

This was our Christmas Dinner. From the time the waitress introduced herself she said to "bear with her" because they were overwhelmed and they took in too many reservations. As warned, service was terrible.
Food was under seasoned (steak, chicken jerez, croquetas). The chicken jerez was so dry and bland that we sent it back. The meatballs tapa was flavorful but the meatballs were dry and tough. We ordered a tapa of jamon serrano and queso manchego, but the queso arrived 15 minutes after the jamon. My dad ordered papas with chorizo, but after several requests, it finally arrived 45 minutes later but they substituted the papas for french fries. The paellas were not good either- flavors were off.
The flamenco "show" was just 1 dancer who danced only 1 song once an hour on a tiny stage that we couldn't see from our table.
At the end of the dinner, the waitress thanked us over and over again for being so cool and patient with the bad service, but automatically added 20% tip anyway. Never coming back.

My family and I go out to dinner each Christmas Eve. This year we selected Tapas Toro because they had a special for Spanish Paella all you can eat and dessert. To our surprise, the Paella was only for chicken which was fine with us as long as it was a Paella. The Paella served lacked the main Paella ingredients including the chicken and the typical taste of Paella. The dessert was supposed to be a carrot cake and it looked and tasted more like a bread pudding than a carrot cake. There were not enough Waitresses so we had to difficulties getting the attention of the Waitress for refills, especially water. Bottom line, the food tasted and looked horrible and pricey. So wish, we would have selected another place where we would have been pleased with the food and the ambiance. My entire family of 6 adults, agreed that this place is overpriced and overrated. We walked away upset and disappointed about our Christmas Eve dinner.

Excellent food, fun atmosphere, flamenco dancers make it a great experience. Located right near the SeaLife aquarium. We had a reservation on Christmas eve, and it was a full house. Our server was friendly and efficient, there when we needed her, not there when we didn't. We ordered paella (which takes 40 minutes) and 2 tapas dishes to share while waiting. It was plenty for 4 people, and we didn't have enough room for dessert. We also had a pitcher of nice red Sangria to drink. We will be back when we are in Orlando again.

We loved the atmosphere. Was the best Paella I've had. Our server Bianca was great. And even though it was a very busy night (Christmas Eve) we did not feel rushed. Will definitely retutrn whenever we visit Orlando!

The food has good taste, but the seafood paella was so poor on the sea food that to paid $450.00, for two paellas, we all felt we were reaped off. The service was excellent.

Loved it and can't wait to go back. The Flamenco dancer was beautiful, the food outstanding, and the service prompt!

If I could suggest something would be that I would have loved to hear more Spanish music (e.g. Flamenco, classical Spanish guitar, etc.) as they mostly played salsa, merengue, cumbia, etc.

Tapa Toro was fantastic all around. The service was great. The food was amazing. We sat at the Paella bar and watched the paella being made. We shared a delicious pitcher of sangria and multiple tapas and the dessert trio. The Valencia cream and churros were particularly good. Wish We lived closer so we could enjoy more often!

The ham croquettes and meatballs were salty. My server never offered refills on my soda. She took a long time to greet us and take our order.

Does the entree include bread? If yes, I never got mine. I f not, disregard this comment.

We had a fun time and our server was very engaging. The live dancing every hour was an enjoyable addition. We sat in the front enclosed glass semi-circle and liked the feel of the room more than the larger back dining area. Food, wine and overall experience was a nice way to share the night with friends.

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!
