We went to this restaurant located in Kingsway, Glen Waverley . We had a banquet and it was fantastic!!!! We all shared the food and the desserts were to die for. Great restaurant to visit with excellent food and a cozy atmosphere.

if you're torn at their many dishes, tapas and steak, just ask their Chef to decide for you and pay for a reasonable price. so I went there, don't know what to order, so the waitress notice that I'm struggling to choose a dish so she suggested that we can just let the chef to decide for us. that's the...

Busy place in a busy restaurant area, on a Friday night anyway, when we visited. We went for the" feed me" option which was a good variety of Tapas followed by a main share dish. We got the slow roasted lamb which was the highlight of the dishes for me, it was really great and I would recommend it. No... More

Went for lunch and had the "you choose for me" option as I couldn't decide. This consisted of 3 smaller tasting plates and 1 larger which was more than enough for 2 people. The food was really good and service attentive. Another pleasant surprise was they stocked Pacifico brand of beer which is very nice Quite expensive so don't think... More

Staff were fantastic and food was wonderful. A very popular restaurant and best to book. A large variety of food choices and all the ones we tried were delicious.

We've dined here twice recently. Once as a couple, and most recently as a foursome. It's very busy here and I recommend booking to avoid disappointment. We opted for the "feed me" (with dessert) option, which gives you a fairly broad and very generous sample of the menu. We were given 4-5 entree plates to share, 1-2 mains to share,... More

We had a party of 6 when we dined at The Black Toro this week. The restaurant has a nice relaxed vine and the staff, every single one of them who just fantastic and friendly. As for the food..... Outstanding! It's designed so you share small plates of food. We had quite a few share plates between us and had... More

From the moment we walked into the restaurant the service was brilliant. When I made the booking I noted that I was Coeliac and they were prepared, so much so they have a Gluten Free menu as well as a Coeliac Friendly menu (yes, there is a difference). We decided to go for the "feed me" menu where they choose... More

While Tapas is not my favourite food I enjoyed this restaurant. From the effusive greeting to the efficient table service and buzzy vibe it was a good experience. We were a table of 5 and each chose a starter which we cut into pieces and shared. Some were easy to share like the Guac,(the nachos were very bland) but slicing... More

Honestly one of the best meals of my life. I know I'm a vegetarian (sorry), but the chefs tasting was beautiful and delicious (beet salad, pumpkin thing, tofu sliders yummmm). Everything was so good I can't pick. Do the tasting! Coworkers had the pork and chicken with mole and pork tacos and said they were AMAZING. Ask for Josh he... More
