Great family restaurant

We have been to the new location on Lakeshore many times. I know the community was terribly upset when they had to move from their original location in the 3rd Line mall, but I think this location is much more open and the decor is very pleasant. The staff have always been very welcoming (but not... read more

El Spero is a favourite restaraunt amongst the Bronte community, it is also worth the drive to meet friends and family and it also has take out. It is located in Bronte Village on the Lakeshore just east of Bronte Road on the south side. There is ample parking at the side and rear of the restaraunt. The restaraunt is... More

This is an excellent restaurant, for families, couples, business, casual, or anyone. The service is excellent in this family-run place. Keep in mind that it's no longer at Hopedale Mall but is now located at Lakeshore & Bronte. Please go for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Don't miss it.

Visit with my daughter for family breakfast, great menu choices for any ages, appetite and tastes! Very busy the day we were there with all ages represented, retired, teens, large family gatherings! Great service, quick coffees, extras readily provided and lots of coffee top ups!

Amazing place. The new location is great and only surpassed by the service. The food was generously portioned and tasted great.

They have left the old Hopedale Mall and moved down into Bronte Village on Lakeshore Blvd. Same menu items but an improved décor and location. The food is basic but always well done. Service is excellent too.

Four of us visited here for brunch. Portions are large. Service is attentive and friendly. Two of us had to sent our bacon & eggs back as the eggs were not hot. They re-did them quickly. They are at their new location in Lake Shore, clean and nice and bright. It might be the ceiling shape but something is contributing... More

El Spero moved to Bronte after many years in a neighbourhood mall. They are family owned and operated and serve good food. The restaurant is newly decorated and has spacious booths which are easily accessible. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is comfortable. We enjoy Sunday morning breakfasts here as well as a good dinner when we feel we... More

El Spero used to be our go to family family restaurant @ their previous location in Hopedale Mall. After two visits @ the new location we have given up. While the service is still good, the prices are higher and the quality is nowhere near what it used to be. Their two previous standouts, the club sandwich & the chicken... More

I used to eat here when it was at Hopedale. Same great food and service but this location is even better. My teenaged kids love to eat here. There is a good variety of options to choose from. Kids like the burgers and fish and chips. I enjoy the fresh salads. Portions are generous. This is one of our new... More
