Excellent visit to this restaurant for a special family meal. The food was delicious and the recommended wine lovely. This is our second visit and would go again when we return to Helsinki. The description of the food made it so different.

A brilliant place. We had the recommended three course daily menu. This began with three small tapas: a delicious cold pea and cava soup, a stuffed pepper and excellent snow ham on aubergine. The main course was iberico pork from the grill, served with parsnips, baby carrots and a celeriac purée - yum. Honey parfait was also good, as were... More

I visited this restaurant on a business trip with some colleagues, based on its ratings on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. We were served a truly superb meal in this Torres-branded restaurant. The food consists of set meals offered from a menu that is oral only. The waiter offered a surprise set of three tapas dishes, followed by a choice... More

We found information about this small restaurant on TripAdvisor, and we do not regret our visit! The food was excellent, and the service was extraordinary. Each and every tapas dish was an explosion of taste, and both the cava and our red wine were carefully chosen to complement the dishes. Really nice staff with a lot of knowledge about the... More

Copas y Tapas don't have menus, all tapas and main course is told you by your waiter. Food was full of taste, tapas was excelent. I eat fish for my main course. That was ok but not as... More

Copas y Tapas is an amazing experience, and lots of fun. We loved talking with Yari (the owner) and his two sons, all involved in the creative cookery; one son told us, for instance, that he'd picked the wild violets in the salad that morning. Highlights included a fantastic cauliflower soup topped with blueberry dust (who knew?) and a delicious... More

Copas y Tapas is a precious little Spanish island in Helsinki. It serves superb Spanish tapas. There is no written menu, instead you will be asked what you do NOT like, and the super friendly staff will care of the rest. I have also found wine list and recommendations very satisfying. In addition to tapas, there are three or for... More

This was recommended by our hotel. We were surprised that there was no Menu, but followed the advice of our waiter to go with the three tapas of the day, and to pick a main course from a choice of three. We chose a fish and a port main course. We both had a glass of Cava, a Spanish sparking... More

I may say that where I live there are not so many good option to taste a good tapas to match with wine,so for me this place was a great surprise. To be in Helsinki prices are more than acceptable,interiors are cozy and perfectly suits for a couple searching a relaxing time in Helsinki trip.
