A real steakhouse

It's like the restaurants in my childhood - dated interior, just a bar counter and tables. Nothing too fancy, just a genuine pub-style restaurant in a good way. Menu is mostly steaks and schnitzels. Served with amazing fries with a lot of seasoning, and very little vegetables. Taste is great... read more

This place has been forever at the same place and the menu has also been the same forever -> provides big portions of not so healthy but tasty food. Normally very popular place during lunch time.

Good steaks. The interior is straight from 70's when the restaurant was opened. And if you are vegetable lover please stay away as this restaurant serves big steaks.

Way overpriced, almost 30euros for a steak, pile of fries and a tasteless salad made of chinese cabbage, canned pineapple and cucumber. Not worth going, although the steak was decent.

I come here every time I'm in the neighborhood not because of the service because there isn't any, not because of atmosphere, because it's simple but because theretgp no sauce Choron like theirs anywhere!!! Have a filet steak with Choron sauce and you will be satisfied! Or I eat my hat.

Grilli Toro is a steak house in northern Tapiola in an area that is mostly residential. Interior of the place is clean and quite minimalistic with wooden chairs. Portions are big, but at least the Wiener Schnitzel I ordered left also a lot of room for improvement. There were plenty of fries on top of the portion. Unfortunately the ketchup... More

Toro is already a legend. Very "spartan" restaurant, simpe tables and seats, sharp knives and forks, but you don't visit Toro to enjoy eclectic atmosphere, but Toro is a place where you go get a decent Beef/Steak! Plates are big and I have heard nobody complaining leaving the place still hungry. prices have gone up but are still below the... More

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
