Although the food was nice, our server was horribly rude the whole night. Her attitude was to take our money (alot of it) and get us the heck out of there as fast as possible. Would not recommend this to anyone trying to take their girlfriend on a nice dinner date.

Look like real Spanish restaurant. It is both enjoyable to look at it from the window and sit there. Spain in Finland... Great!

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

we had dinner there with my wife 2 years ago, ordered a paella and hoped for an enjoyment, instead got a mouthful of uncooked rice that was sent back and after 45 minutes got a second dish exactly THE same, but THE cherry on top of THE cake or THE paella was a sort of huge spoon of what I... 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
