Toro has a nice set up and is a quiet spot to visit. The food was tasty & having First Table meant it’s worth it to try a few. Would recommend.

Had an amazing meal at Toro. Started off with a jug of sangria. To start we got the croquettes balls stuffed with cheese, and for my main I got Paella. It was delicious! Will definitely be back. Service was great too

All together a fantastic meal. I'm a vegetarian and my husband a dedicated meat eater and we both couldn't have been happier.

We had goats cheese crostini and BBQ brisket for starters which were incredibly flavourful and the beef seemed to be falling apart on the fork.

As mains we went for the venison which was apparently great and I was actually a bit jealous of how delicious the veggies looked, my risotto was fabulous as well though, very rich and creamy.

We couldn't help ourselves and had desserts too. Both were unbelievable. Definitely recommend eating here!

Only down side I could maybe say is that it was pretty cold even inside as they had the doors wide open but just bring a jumper or a jacket :)

The waitress are very friendly. Good restaurant design. We order 2 entrees/2 mains. Unfortunately, 3 dishes are too salty. It didn’t match our except. Just normal

We had a warm welcome by all the staff! The cocktails are lovely and there’s so much to choose from with food!

We went for starters and tapas and all of it was yummy! The goat cheese and spinach balls were INSANE and the octopus was yummy! The chicken wings were a bit underwhelming but everything else was great! Would defo recommend!

We had a very enjoyable dinner at Toro. The food range from excellent ( paella, sous vied lamb rump and pork spiral), to good (desserts), to disappointing (ceviche and patata bravas). Service was good and the environment was pleasant. Will certainly return but will avoid some of the items on the menu.

We had a nice meal at Toro and enjoyed a selection of their tapas. The menu is different to the sample on First Table. Most things were delicious (the croquettes and orange brulee for dessert were really yummy) although the patatas bravas were underwhelming (not crisp and too much tomato) and the pork portion was really small. But overall we enjoyed eating there :)

It was my first time using first table and I decided to book to dine at Toro Kitchen and Bar Queenstown, which was also my first time visiting this restaurant. I chose Toro based on the information provided on the first table website: the restaurant cuisine, the price guide and the allocated times / days. Initially, I was apprehensive with it all being a new experience but the minute we walked in to the restaurant those worries disappeared. We were greeted by a lovely waitress, Claudia, who seated us and told us everything we needed to know regarding our booking with first table (such as, which dishes weren't included in the deal and that drinks were full price). She had extensive knowledge about the menu, recommended particular dishes, and even made some suggestions of which meals could be made vegetarian to suit our dietary requirements. We ordered an array of starter/sharers and tapas and even finished off with dessert. The food came out as and when it was ready and we were blown away by the high standard, everything was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The seafood paella was my favourite! Claudia was very attentive, checking that everything was okay with our food and seeing if we wanted any more drinks. When it was time to pay our bill, I was gobsmacked and delighted at the price we were paying for such delicious food, excellent service and smooth booking through first table. I can safely say I will be using first table more often, will be recommending Toro and definitely visiting again.
