Their have very very good food. We have visited this place since 1974. This is a very popular restaurant in Espoo. We recommend. The prices are not high.

I used to go there regularly back in the 80's and 90's and they served perfect steaks and schnitzels. That wasn't the case any longer. The breading was greasy, burned and tasted absolutely nothing. The quality of the meat was poor and french fries were sloppy and unsalted. Total disappointment. I understand that they want to keep the place like... More

Continues to be excellent beef restaurant in Espoo. A very popular restaurant for all kinds of people. Visited Toro first time in 1980s and visit there every now and then. Worth going if you are nearby

The restaurant is well known for its steaks, wonder why. The athmosphere reminds of a school diner 40 years ago and so does the food. Fries from grocery store, some lettuce and a steak, that to be honest, was ok quality though not mediumrare as I had ordered. Service at this place means ordering at the bar and paying before...

Imagine if you will a restaurant from the mid 80-ties, before the economy went down the drain. Now imagine no one has done any redecorating whatsoever to it, they haven't even redone their menus, they just ripped out the pages with the items they no longer serve. If you crave meat and potatoes in large portions to affordable prices this... More

Since this place has gotten so much media attention over the years, and it's steaks keep attracting the locals back over and over for decades, my wife took me here on an antropological excursion to study the local feeding habits of our neighbouring township of Espoo. We must admit, we were amazed. Not so much by the very plain 70's... More

Coming here for 40 years, on occasion. Steaks are still good and I recommend the place, but price starting to be a bit on the high side in relation to the area availale in 15 min. by car. With same price or cheaper you get much nicer athmosphere or even tastier food.

The place is still just like in seventies, when I was a child. And as a finn I like that I can go to restaurant wearing even sportsgear. The steaks are the best ever, and now Im counting Finland and rest of the world ;) My favorit is "Mirabeau ".

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, portions large and the prices very reasonable. Probably the best... More
