Grilli Toro is a steakhouse that has been well known for its steak-and-fries meals for more than three decades. The concept is simple: choose your steak and it will be served with large amount of fries (you have other choices also) and minimum amount of vegetables. The interior of the restaurant feels like going back in time 30 years, the... More

This is one of my favourites since late 1970's. Extremely good at their niche. Stake, fries and a small side sallad. If you are hungry and feel like having a good stake or schnitzel, this is the place. You can also have a smaller portion of the classics.

This restaurant has unique style that has not changed not at all. Simply: if you are hungry and looking for steak, this is your place. If you looking for anything green, wine, decent decoration, nice atmosphere, females etc., stay away. French fries are like mountain and steak is partly visible, partly hidden under fries….and surprisingly continue after fries i.e. steaks... More

This place doesn't really serve anything green. They serve meat, with huge amount of fries. The meat was very tasty when I visited this place, but I would have appreciated something green as well.. The food is okay but it's not fine or especially good. The place looks very old and would definitely need some renovation. I come here for... More

This steak house has been in the same place somewhat 40 years. Menu and interior is pretty much the same as it was on 70’s, but need to say that this place has served good tasting food all those years! Everything from the menu is great.

I like this kind of food. Big steak, a lot of fries/what ever you take for side order. The place looks awfull, '80s gas station cafeteria, but still them quality have been sama last 20 years. I visit here every 6 months (last 10 years). P.s. Typically women don't like this place - i'v tired 10 times

Like someone said, this place hasn't changed since the 70's. Fun for all of that used to go there as kids, but not really a tourist attraction... The portions are hefty, though, so you won't leave hungry!

Gigantic steak and a kilo of fries. If you are hungry, go to Toro. I just love the athmosphere, here you can see what it was to" go out" for dinner back in the 70´s. Try häränseläke valkosipulivoilla with valkosipuliperunat. My absolute favourite! It never fails.

This legendary steak restaurant has been here in Pohjois-Tapiola as long as I can remember. Big plates, you won't be hungry after visiting Toro! Service is typical Finnish no-say-much, but you'll do fine. Just browse the list at the counter and state your order, wait for your steak and eat it silently at your table in a room with 10... More
