Authentic mexican flavours

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... read 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.

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

Really autenthic mexican flavours. We had the long way tasting menu. Good size portions and great food. Took me back to Mexico... The coctails were also really good and atmosphere was laid back with nice Mexican cantina feel. Friendly staff, only negative was that we had to wait for the coctails a pretty long time. Overall a very nice place... More

One of the best mexican meals ever! We had the 7 course tasting menu and it was amazing! Spicy, tasteful and well balanced combo. Only minus was the dessert; the flan was a bit too sweet and heavy for my taste.
