I have been living close to this restaurant for a very long time but never visited or heard anything about it. It was Sunday night and we were walking by and heard a loud music coming from the restaurant, as we were getting closer we noticed that the music was actually being played live by few guys. Not performing but... More

I been there many times and always Samir succeeded to surprise us. The food is delicious and I can say that so good Greek food I haven't eat even in Greece where the food was very commercial. We love Greek food and Taverna Zorbas is offering the most authentic and delicious food. I recommend this restaurant being convinced that everybody... More

I have visited twice this restaurant and the food has been fine. Also the wines were good and not very expensive. I can recommend this.

Finland doesn't have many greek restaurants. This is one of the best. It is small and nice. Casual. Owners know their stuff. Definitely worth visiting if you fancy a bit of greek delicacies.

Went here for the 10th time a few days ago, this time with my mom, hubby nnd 8month old daughter. Restaurant was almost full on a Saturday at 3pm, so the service was at times slow with only one waiter, but friendly as always. Small kids are welcome, which is often not the case in Finnish restaurants. We ate a... More

Just went there for lunch on a weekday. The staff was very nice and helpful, making me feel I was in some Greek Island enjoying lunch at the seaside. The food was simple, but perfect! I advise to try the meatballs if they have it in a day you go there. I am definitely going back, but now for dinner... More

We've been to this restaurant a few times and have always been very satisfied. The food, atmosphere and super-friendly service keep bringing us back. The restaurant is very family-friendly and our 8 year old son loves this place. It doesn't have a children's menu but has several good choices for children including chicken pasta. Luckily no meatballs - the standard... More

My son (17 yrs) wanted to celebrate his birthday in a Greek restaurant. Solidarity for the present Greek troubles? Zorbas was selected because of good reviews and a good location alongside the tram route (just two steps from the tram stop). Nice interiors, especially the impressive painting of Achilles pulling the body of Hector in the dust. Lets you show... More

Although the prices are slightly upscale for restaurants in this city part, the food is well worth every penny you pay for it. Out family (two adults and a small child) went there a few hours before closing on a quiet rainy day, and were delightfully surprised by the delicious food and the very very (adult and child-) friendly staff....
