  • Ben MI've been to Portland 3x and I've gone to Toro Bravo every time. Grilled octopus and paella are must-haves. But all their food is on point. Follow your heart and your belly will not be disappointed.

  • Alan M.Go with a few people and order a whole bunch of things to share. But expect to wait for a table.

    55555 by Alan M.

  • Alaa S.One of my Portland favorites! Try the squid ink pasta, the grilled octopus & the house smoked coppa steak. They're so good (esp. the pasta) we drive from Seattle just to grab dinner and drive back! :D

    55555 by Alaa S.

    55555 by Kelli Y.

  • Yoon A계절별로 메뉴가 바뀌는 타파스 전문 식당 겸 pub. 무지하게 시끄러워 얘기하기 어려움. 타파스는 대체로 괜찮으나 파에아는 별로라는.

    55555 by Yoon A

  • SaraEverything we had - grilled octopus, Brussels sprouts, meatballs, and coppa steak - all were delicious with complex flavors that stood out. Cute and small - expect a wait, but well worth it!

    55555 by Sara

  • Pat M.Iberico skirt steak, Barcelona kisses, and Kyle's cocktails are fantastic. You can't really go wrong with anything on the menu.

    55555 by Pat M.

    55555 by Le Jordan

    33333 by Maggie Williams

    55555 by Melon L.

  • Cesar ANo good Spanish food. I'm Spaniard and the food here tonight was not like in SpIn at all.. Avoid this restaurant since it is also a bit pricy for what you get.. The paella was burnt and not good..

    33333 by Cesar A

  • Erika SThe "spanish" food was not at all as it should be. Im from spain and i came here for a good spanish dinner. The food was spicy and had spices we dont use in spain. Not to mention the paella, just no.

    33333 by Erika S

    55555 by Nick

  • Jack S.If you have to wait, you can wait in front or in their little cove and get served. They'll move you to a 'real' table (read: larger) if you want, but you get the same attention, service and food.

    33333 by Jack S.

  • Phil H.The braised lamb is the best! Really good noodles and apricot flavor is fab
