I came to this restaurant with my partner and parents before heading to Hammersmith Apollo for a concert and it exceeded expectations. The menu is well balanced and plates come out as they're ready. Great cocktails and a lovely wine list. I'll definitely be going back.

We were looking for somewhere nice to have dinner before going to a show at the Hammersmith Apollo. Found toro Gordo and it has a loverly ambiance, good service and great food. It was almost a shame to have to leave, will definitely go back again.

Really enjoyed the food. It was very good. A slight innovation adding a touch of Asian to one or two dishes, whilst the rest still seemed authentically Spanish - with the key tapas dishes you would want. Service was good, and the price was very reasonable for London dining.

Tapas were not the usual fare offered at other tapas restaurants in London. Food was well prepared and tasty, a nice spice flavoring but not very hot. Menu is a bit limited, but that lets them concentrate on what they do, I suspect.

Enjoyed Sunday-evening tapas while staying in the area. Food was really good, contrary to some poor recent reviews.

I’d been to this restaurant when it first opened and was very impressed with the food. However, upon my second visit I found it to be a little ‘paint by numbers’ Spanish restaurant. The food was fine, but lacked any imagination. Presa Imberica should be an event in itself, but here it was just put on the table without explanation, to the point that we thought it was another table dish and had to check with the staff. The churro’s at the end were a great disappointment. Frozen dough mix fried in old oil can not be made better no matter how much chocolate sauce you try and cover it with. Sad to say, but I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.

Excellent evening with friends who had not tried a range of Tapas. They really enjoyed the experience of tasting a variety of Tapas as we worked our way thru the menu. Not inexpensive but great value. We will be back especially for the Croquetas,

Such a delicious restaurant in a quaint neighborhood! I booked Toro Gordo to take my mom to while she was visiting me in London, and I'm definitely glad I chose here. A delicious tapas selection, and in her words "the best calamari I've ever had!" Great wine and a peaceful innovative ambience. Not too loud either. 10/10 would definitely recommend - especially in Hammersmith!

This used to be a favorite restaurant in Hammersmith, but the menu has changed considerably for the worse. It has lost it's Asian influence, and removed several dishes that made it an interesting and tasty meal. The service was always acceptable, but we would really go for the food. Without the good food, the poor service is even more noticeable...

A purely mediocre overpriced Spanish Tapas restaurant just isn't good value or interesting at present- hope they return to their previous approach.

This restaurant had a lovely cosy feel , friendly staff ,tasty food.
We dined on a Sunday evening so was very quiet it may be a bit snug if every table was taken.
Prices are what you expect in London.
Dishes were served very quickly and were hot and delicious would have liked a little more time between each dish .

The food was great - we ordered a wide selection of tapas and were pleasantly surprised by all of the dishes. A great discovery in Hammersmith - worth a visit. It was very busy the night we were there and unfortunately the service suffered - we ended up cancelling a bottle of wine because we’d finished our food and it hadn’t arrived - not a major drama but perhaps they needed a few more staff that night.

Very pleasant meal at this popular restaurant. Very busy with tables tightly packed together so not ideal for an intimate romantic meal. Food is excellent though, as are the cocktails. Not cheap, the cost quickly increases as you add more tapas dishes. But a great night out if you don't mind the cost.

Food was nice and authenticly Spanish. We were lucky to be seated near the bar as the waiter behind the bar was very attentive. He suggested few drinks for us. My friend didn't want to have alcoholic drinks, so he suggested to make any cocktail she would pick without alcohol and he made them very tasty. Had 4 sangrias (as they were 2 for 1) and none alcoholic cocktails with 4 small tapas and 2 big ones (6 in total). The bill came to £85, which wasn't bad.
