Good place

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.

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

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

This was our second time to eat at their new location. First time breakfast and second time dinner. The new location is very nicely decorated and well laid out. The staff are also very friendly and helpful. For breakfast I had eggs, sausage, breakfast potatoes. For the first time here in Canada someone has finally managed to the perfect breakfast... More

In the past few months, this family-owned restaurant moved from the Hopedale Plaza on Rebecca St. to Lakeshore Rd. in the Bronte area of Oakville. (NOTE: the address is wrong on TripAdvisor site). Excellent food, large portions at a very reasonable price. Good service & a great ambiance, especially for a "family" restaurant. Extensive menu for all tastes. All day... More

Did a business lunch at the new El Spero on Lakeshore in Bronte. This resto deservedly enjoyed a loyal and mature clientele at the Hopedale Mall. It had to move from there due to a mall reno, and there was a long hiatus. It seems the hiatus was survived, and El Spero is thriving with the same formula: attentive, friendly... More

El Spero is a great family and friends restaurant. Looks like brand new inside, the place was Licks Hamburger chain before. The inside was done nicely, service staff were friendly and very pleasant. Food plates are quite big and taste like home cooking. I had the mushroom and swiss cheese hamburger and it was delicious: I had the sweet potatoes... More

The food was excellent. A great Family Restaurant. Totally renovated. The old location 'at hopedale mall' was ugly inside. This place is now Bright & Modern. The food is as good as it always was/is! Management - super friendly, as is the Staff. If they remember you from the old location, prepare yourself for a Hug! lol. Lots of Parking.... More
