Highly Commended Best Latin American 24 Comments
- Picture 1 of 2
Since opening, Toro Toro has proved a popular spot for brunches and evening celebrations thanks to its restaurant-lounge feel, a lively, funky atmosphere and made-to-share tapas selection. A polished assembly of staff are raring to go when it comes to sharing recommendations and taking your order, which though welcome at first can become a little off-putting when the up-sell begins, and you may find yourself talked into over-ordering for your group size. Avoid the mains, which are confused at best and stick to the huge variety of hot and cold tapas, which offer far better value for your dirham. The staff highly recommend the selection of ceviche, though stand-out dishes include the baked scallops (reminiscent of a generous French coquille Saint-Jacques) and the spice-rubbed grilled octopus, both of which are served in very generous portions. For swanky tapas on a night out, Toro Toro is worth a look.
