If you are in the mood for some Spanish fare, Toro Gordo is a great option in the Hammersmith area. The Iberico meat platters on the menu are particular favourites of this restaurant’s guests, along with the Andalucian spicy lamb dish, which brings a bit of the Spanish sun right to your table. Tapas and cocktails also form a strong combination at this eatery -- great for pre-theatre drinks and snacks. There is an indulgent dessert menu for those with a sweet tooth. Try the churros, you won’t regret it.

Potatoes came out also more flavourful than your average version. Sliced octopus came on a bed of guacamole rather than potatoes which was an interesting interpretation. Duck breast... more
Toro Gordo is a Spanish tapas restaurant with an Asian twist, which becomes obvious when you sample the food and drink available. The slight variations of the traditional tapas dishes such as spices and oils used certainly compliment the different tastes and offer an alternative to traditional tapas for those a bit more adventurous or wanting something a bit different.

The service here was awful! I'm not exaggerating when I say that from the time we walked in to the time we walked out, not one server came to ask how we were doing or even to take our order.

I really fancied dessert, but no one came with a dessert menu or to offer a... more
