Since El Spero was booted out of Hopedale Mall, they have moved to their new location in Bronte. Same great menu, same great service. An old style restaurant in new surroundings.

I've been going here with friends and family since I was a kid. I was devastated when they closed down. But now with a bigger space and even more love, El Spero's is better than ever. The staff are always friendly and the food is just like Grandma makes. A definite must visit.

My family has had a long history of going to El Spero for many years. Always good value with a friendly family atmosphere. I am greatful that the El Spero Family found a new home in Bronte and know that they will continue their traditional good service and fantastic food. Best wishes from Nikolov Family

We had a great time at this restaurant, service was good, friendly and food was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant as the food portions were large, pricing was not expensive and the overall appearance was comfortable atmosphere.

El Spiro has been a mainstay of Oakville restaurants for many years and now they have moved to a much nicer location. The new restaurant is spacious and bright, low noise level when we were there and of course the staff is courteous, efficient and friendly. The food was fabulous, plentiful and sizzling hot as it arrived at our table.... 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.

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 pricy. There were... More

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.
