Recent family birthday dinner. Good service but also very good recommendations on food choices and volumes from the waiter. The only downsides are that it is a bit pricey, it's also quite noisy as the tables are very close and it's a small restaurant. Food was great so no problems on this front. The hock was fab. No BYO wine... More

Yes, I have reviewed Black Toro before - last year, and so on revisiting I was pleasantly surprised that the place is even better! Front desk staff are great and customer service was excellent. Great entree of lamb tacos followed by the deliciously crispy park hocks - a real treat! The rice pudding desert finished a great meal. Do try... More

Glen was buzzing and we were lucky to get a table. Went with the Feed Me option which was extremely filling and good value. Corn and hock were both great and beer selection more than adequate

Sat outside so nice. Food and service was fine but the cost was extremely high for the food. Would go back but only when I can afford to splurge a bit $$$ wise

The Black Toro was recommended by a friend - and we saw that most reviews were very good. We sampled a few of the small plates which were flavoursome & served up quickly - but a bit pricey for what you got. The corn was amazing - just like everyone says - and the hand cut chips were perfect. We... More

Took the 'feed me' option... and it was delicious as always. The dirty mojito was a fantastic accompaniment.

The menu is definitely different with Tapas to main meals. Some dish's can be rather small for the money especially the chicken main but for real value try the Hoch it was gigantic so I suggest you share. Fantastic range of beer and it does offer street dinning.

My family went here after my graduation to celebrate and this was the highlight of my day. We opted for the "Feed Me" (degustation) menu because it is a really great way to try a bit of everything and my, oh my, it was glorious! The dishes are well thought out and appealing to every sense. You won't walk away... More

Recently dropped into the Black Toro. Good, friendly service from people who actually knew what they were selling. An interesting selection of foods and drinks at average prices. Judging by the crowd, others found the place acceptable as well. Would dine here again.
