I went here recently for dinner with a friend. The pros: It was nice to sit on the balcony 'outside' the restaurant. The staff were pleasant. There was a good selection of wine with prices which were normal for Finland. The cons: the food. I search the menu for something that would be Spanish, not too heavy for an evening... More

I liked the Torero Restaurant. It was quiet and I found all I needed. Bacon and eggs and fruits, vegetables, youghurt, panncakes and much more and very tasty

We ate there on Friday evening. The balcony was very pleasant and on the first floor there was a citarist/singer playing good songs, songs that we knew and liked. Service was excellent and very friedly. Food was also very good like was the wine. We recommend this place.

As Torero is nicely located within Jyväshovi it was a good choice for us since we stayed in the hotel. It seems that Torero shares the menu with Sevilla, the other S-club spanish restaurants there is in Finland, but we like the ala carte menu so this wasn't a disappointment. We shared a matadors meat in a sword and had... More

Spanish style food above the Sokos hotel in downtown Jyvaskyla. Excellent food (Valdean beef and Chocolate cake w/ white chocolate ice cream). Service friendly but slow, although it was busy on a Friday night. Service staff knew the menu well and gave good recommendations to our party. Would highly recommend if you are able to spend the 30-60 EUR per... More

We choose this for our own convenience. While staying at the hotel Jyväshovi it was easy just stay within the same premises. Our table was in a quiet corner, service was good and we were looked after. The main menu with several theme menus (actually three separate a la carte lists) made the decision making for an evening snack quite... More

We took a dinner in this place before going to theatre. We were guided to table but then we were forgotten for almost half an hour. Food was ok, but not very exceptional for a restaurant that is not very cheap. All the time the service was very slow. I don't know if this is usual in this restaurant but... More

Friendly stuff, but we were sitting near by the childer's playground, so maybe that's why we were sometimes unforgotten,.. But the food was very delicious and for the worth of waiting!

This place is known its Tapas selection ans spanish style food in overall. Quality is very good and you can find easily your favorite from the menu. I had Chorizo meatballs with mashed potatoes and those were superb! Location is in the heart of Jyväskylä city, 2nd floor on the hotel Jyväshovi. I gave only 3 stars because of slow... More
