El Toro Steakhouse has a special place among the restaurants in Cluj-Napoca, as it was the first steakhouse to open in the city. Located only a couple of minutes away from the city centre, it is one of the first options for people in search of a perfectly grilled Argentinean steak.

In order to ensure the high quality and delicious taste of the steak, the meat is bought from countries with tradition, such as Argentina, USA, Italy and New Zealand.  El Toro’s chefs prepare it on a wood and charcoal barbeque situated inside the restaurant, so that the guests can watch it roasting right in front of their eyes. Prepared and served with attention to detail, the steak at El Toro boasts with its excellent taste, softness and juiciness. We recommend you to try the Dakota rib-eye, tenderloin and strip steaks, which, even though some might consider a bit pricy, are of premium quality.  In order to have a really extraordinary meal, you can pair the food with one of the more than 100 types of red and white wines.

Apart from the delicious meal, you will surely enjoy the restaurant’s atmosphere, pleasant and relaxed, suitable for both a business lunch and an informal dinner with friends. For guests who come to El Toro accompanied by their children, the restaurant offers special playrooms for the little ones.

Reservations are recommended. Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards are accepted.


If you want to taste a truly unique steak, order one of the premium steaks, which are prepared from higher quality beef. The meat for these steaks can be so rare and hard to purchase, that it is recommended to call in advance and reserve a certain product for the specific day of your visit to El Toro.
