    The corn dish was a little heavy but shrimp and mussels tapas were absolutely delicious!

    Be prepared to wait for your tapas, because this is a very popular restaurant and they don't take reservations. Great food, though.

    Great food for an amazing price. Garlic shrimp are so delicious. Also, the cold smoked eggplant dish is amazing. The only downside is that open kitchen, you will leave with mixed odors.

    The corn is amazing. Like cheesy grilled popcorn. Tuna tartare ia very well done. Jamon blanco is quite flavorful. Im not quite sold on the bone marrow but the flat bread that comes with it is good.

    Can't find a single thing I did not love about Toro. As a Spaniard - and Spanish food lover - I loved Toro's take on tapas. Some authentic and some with a fun twist. All delicious.

    A chic little spot where the tapas are intriguing little bites; the paella is excellent; and the vibe is cool. But the waits can be murderously long. Read more

    Best tapas in Boston. They don't take reservations but well worth the wait. Theres a wait list at the bar that's typically shorter than table service.
