We had a variety of nibbles and entrees to share on our table...they all came out as and when they were ready and were totally delicious - it was hard to share ;-) my favourite the goats cheese onion jam crostini and the asparagus risotto main. The atmosphere was friendly and pretty relaxed. Staff were attentive and friendly. Would recommend as a nice social night out with friends in Queenstown. Thanks

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.

The food was delicious. I had the prawns to start which were cooked to perfection and caused some food envy. My friends had the ceviche and the pork belly, both were apparently amazing.

For main I had the risotto which was delicious, again perfectly cooked. My friends had the lamb cutlets and the steak which they both thoroughly enjoyed.

Definitely recommend that you should dine here and the chef's should be applauded for their work.

The food was good, the ceviche amazing and the pork belly disappointing. The service was good too. I would also recommend a bigger variety of cocktails.

First time dining in this wonderful restaurant in the Queenstown Mall, and it did not disappoint. Great food, service and atmosphere. It’s a surprisingly generous space with many tables throughout but does not feel over-crowded or noisy.

We had a delicious meal at Toro, the starter and entree menu was too yummy to get past and we were full of perfectly cooked tasty seafood with two starters and 3 entrees between the 2 of us, the churros were the best in town too!!! Service was great really friendly, will definitely go back and can recommend Toro to everyone!!!!

Most of the dishes were pretty good. The prawns were a standout. Pork belly left a bit to be desired. Churros for dessert would have been so much better if the caramel dipping sauce was warmed up! The decor inside is lovely and staff are attentive without being intrusive

This is my partner's favourite restaurant but he usually goes with his mates, this was the first time he's taken me instead.
From the croquettes at the start, everything was amazing.
