“Simply the best !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed in Alvor in 2013 & this was the only restaurant we visited more than once.
On our return to Alvor this year it was agreed by our 2 daughters while still on the plane that our 1st meal would be here..
We have eaten here on 4 different occasions & every time it was faultless.
Highly recommend Steaks & Mussels in garlic.
Fantastic service, staff can't do enough for you.
Our favourite restaurant in Alvor.

“Great dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

We sought out 'O Touro' on the last night of a trip to Alvor and were not disappointed. The rib-eye steaks we ordered were superb and cooked exactly as requested. Ribs were equally good, as was a burger. Small venue inside, lovely service and on my return to the UK, I realised just exactly what good VFM the steaks were.

Highly recommended.

“Beautiful steaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

A lovely little restaurant which provided great service from the moment we arrived to the time we left. We had the good value meal deal which I'd read about on here. Although it wasn't advertised we asked if it was still on and were told it was (I think it was two tapas, two steaks and a bottle of wine for 29 euros). The two tapas were different and tasty and both of our steaks were cooked spot on and tasted heavenly. A nice little find!

“Best in Alvor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

My daughters and I spent a week in Alvor recently and dined in O Touro on the third night of our trip. It was so good, we booked a table for the last night of our stay. I had the rib eye steak which was melt in the mouth and full of flavour. My daughters had the Alvor hamburger which they loved. The red house wine was also excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This was our favourite restaurant in Alvor and I would happily recommend it.

“Great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

We found this hidden gem on one if out first nights in Alvor, we dined in it twice. The special for 2 people at €29.95 was outstanding as was the wine that accompanied the meal. The food is fresh and tasty, steaks cooked to perfection and the Service was great. The decor is a bit dated but other than that a great spot. Will be back next year.
