We ate here as my cousin had recommended the restaurant. It is just off the marina and easy to find. Our waitress on the evening was lovely - really friendly and very helpful. We decided to skip starters to go straight for the steaks. I opted for the small fillet done medium rare and my boyfriend had the medium size... More

9 Golfers needed a solid and satisfying meal after battling on the course and we choose Don Toro as the menu seemed to fit the needs. All went for differing types of Steak cooked to differing requirements and to everyone's delight the meals were delivered to perfection. I would caution having a starter as the mains are substantial and of... More

My partner had the ribeye and I had the steak special. The cheap deal is a definite no no. I got a small cut of tough meat. The potatoes... More

Great service, great atmosphere, great steak! Fabulous little steak house just off the marina. Lovely friendly service and intimate atmosphere. More relaxed than some of the restaurants on the marina. Bravo!

This is quite a small restaurant with some outdoor eating area and some indoor. The selection was very good and catered for most tastes I would think. We had several dishes whilst on holiday and all were excellent. The staff are very friendly.

Steaks lovely. Very nice restaurant. Staff friendly, good choice of wine! A mixture of outdoor and indoor seating. Desserts are all homemade. Definitely worth a visit!

Having gone here on our first night we both order the pasta dishes one with steak and one with chicken. The flavours were lovely with the veg but it was hard to find the steak or chicken in them. For the price of the 2 dishes we could of cooked it ourselves for the whole restaurant. We decided to give... More
