Oldie but goodie.

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.

Not a Michelin star experience, but excellent stakes and very generous portions! I'm happy to return...

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

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
