Situated on the marina’s edge and on the ground floor of Tower Two, Grosvenor House Lounges in Dubai , Toro Toro (meaning bull) is the first Pan Latin restaurant and lounge of its kind in the UAE, offering a multitude of tastes from across the South American region including: Brazil, Peru, Argentina and Colombia by renowned South American celebrity chef Richard Sandoval.
At Toro Toro, everything from the interior design and layout of the restaurant to the unique menu concept has been created to leave your senses pulsating.
Decorated in rich textures and rich regal tones, the impressive two-floored restaurant and lounge offers a beautiful vista over the waters of Dubai Marina. Guests are welcomed by a roaring floor-to-ceiling fire wall and two majestic steel bulls. The dark and moody interior pays homage to the fires of the traditional Churrasco grill with accents of burnt orange on dark charcoal walls and animal motifs, textured natural sculptures and leather furniture running throughout.
The ground floor of Toro Toro is dedicated to dining with a central open kitchen framed by a striking orange onyx wall and a bar at the far end offering an extensive range of Cachaça with the assistance of in-house South American Cachaça expert. Grand tables are lined with high backed, animal motifs clad furnishings and walls are adorned with dark wrought iron bars which form intimate areas, perfect for larger groups and private parties.
Toro Toro offers visitors a stylish yet relaxed dining experience. With the menu consisting of 45 small plates, bursting with traditional and earthy specialities, the emphasis is on sharing and spending time with family and friends.
Central to the Toro Toro menu is a refined take of the traditional Churrasco grill. Rather than present starter and main course options, the menu items are categorised as: ‘From the Sea’, ‘From the Land’ and ‘From the Garden’. Diners are advised to opt for at least two dishes and can choose from unusual delicacies such as Causa Toro Toro; mashed yellow potato cakes served with tuna tartare, or the equally mouth-watering tamal negro; steamed cornmeal dumplings with goat’s cheese, salsa or seafood.
Those looking for light bites at the bar area are also catered for. A menu of mini appetisers offers favourites such as salt cod croquettes and ceviche, a Latin American inspired sashimi dish.
