Ultra delicious!

The food is amazing, seriously. An explosion of flavours, well served and well presented. Only bad sides of the place are that its always so crowded and noisy, and the prices are high. But to be honest, I'm happy to pay for the excellent food they serve!

Drinks and atmosphere were better than the food itself. Main course (chicken tortilla) was not a success. (Too much baked bean sauce with absolutely no flavour) Liked the interior and service though..

We were a group of six and chose the short tasting menu. Two of us are vegetarians and it was not a problem to have the menus modified for us. We got an extra servig so I was really full already when the main course arrived. We liked the overall setting, e.g. The courses were introduced but not in a... More

You have to know where to find it, but once you do, Patrona restaurant is a bit of Mexico right in Helsinki. The Margaritas are truly thirst quenching with authentic Mexican Tequila. Make sure you have reservations-even on a week night because the place is small and you may be turned away.

Cozy restaurant with very nice personal. Good traditional Mexican street food. The place is very popular so it´s good to book a table.

I'm not a huge fan of Mexican, but the food here could not be faulted. The cocktails were great too & the service, superb. We had the tasting menu & they catered without any problem for my vegan friend. Would highly recommend this place.

Nice little restaurant, with a good vibe and really friendly staff. The waiters speak english (and spanish). The food is very similar to what you get in Mexico, so authentic and "real". Portions are quite small and pricy (main course, three small enchiladas 23 euros ; margarita grinks 11,50 - 13,50 euros). Would recommend for all mexican food -lovers.

Yes, it is a bit overpriced as many reviewers mentioned here. Main course costs 22 eur, cocktails - 11-13 eur. If you order main dish and several cocktails you end up paying around 50 eur for dinner. But! The atmosphere is genuinely great. When you enter the place, it seems it is loud, but actually you can easily talk between... More
