New Location

It has been a number of years since I eat at this place when it was located at Hopedale Mall. My wife and I thought we would try it out for breakfast this morning. Their new location in the Bronte part of Oakville is very modern and trendy looking. Service was good along with the portions but... read more

This is a family friendly restaurant, with an extensive menu. Not too expensive. Friendly, welcoming staff, and good service. We have enjoyed the fish dishes, the Italian dishes and the selection of beers. The restaurant is now located in Bronte Village, on Lakeshore.

Enjoyed the pork souvlaki special tonight and great, fast service from Zora and team. Glad to see that things haven't changed after the big move from Hopedale Mall. Will definitely be back soon!

Food was excellent. Salads were fresh. Meals were cooked to perfection. Portions were ample (even for our teenage sons! lol). My senior Mother also raved about it. The New Location is just great. Lovely modern décor. Staff are super friendly, and attentive. Food was EXCELLENT.

Service was fabulous as usual except when the salmon and eggs came. The salmon was on a doughy english muffin and home fries most were uncooked except the dark ones. Server took it to the chef to look at but she came back saying he was too busy. I opened it up for him to look. Server did not offer... More

Came in with my husband and ordered the crispy onions and the meatloaf as our entree, we both are big eaters and that was more than enough. Everything was great and service was quick and efficient. Our bill, with tip was less than CA$30. I would definitely recommend it for a casual family dinner.

Elegant but casual says it all, when you enter El Spero's you are greeted by well dressed and friendly staff. The restaurant looks like a high end steak and seafood house with dark wood floors and tables along with booths covered in dark material. The food is excellent, comforting casual home cooking. The servings are very generous and delicious and... More

I really liked the food and the decor definitely is good. It had nice people. Only it was freezing in there because the air conditioning was up really high and poor waitress never came along if we wanted refills or if we were okay.

Decided to try El Spero based on reviews in TripAdvisor. I never had the opportunity to go when they were in Hopedale Mall. Many all day breakfast places out there now. Family owned operated. Friendly attentive staff. We both had an all day breakfast. Perfectly cooked. N O T a greasy omelet. Eggs/bacon toast as requested. Will go back for... More

We were sitting immediately upon entering the restaurant at a nice booth. Drink orders prompt and the waitress was friendly, attentive and made sure to pay particular attention to the kids making them feel comfortable. From grilled cheese sandwiches to hot dogs and fries to spaghetti and meatball sauce there was something to satisfy the whole family. This is a... More
