Very good food, a bit slow service (Saturday)

We went to Amigo on a Saturday night and the place was almost full and the two waiters were quite busy as the night went on. The food was really good - I had some crabsoup for starters and it was smooth as silk, followed by a traditional plank steak which was excellent. I finished with white... read more

My last visit to this restaurant must have been 15 years ago, and while we had good memories from it from our youth, we decided to give it a new try. it was like going back in time; same decoration, same atmophere. First we had to wait a bit too long to get the attention of the waiter for our... More

I used to go in the 70's and 80's with my grandmother, who had a thing for Spain. Amigo hasn't changed much and is therefore everything but trendy. You'll probably find a table even when all the in-places in the neighbourhood are packed. On the upside, the service is friendly and the large portions of hearty food are well prepared.... More

After years of absence we ventured to dine at Amigo, and were impressed. It's the tasty bit of a genuine standard nominal Spanish dinner from the times of the young Julio Iglesias. Fresh cut tapas, well roasted steak, genuine orange flan for dessert. Unpretentious, honest and tasty. Also affordable.

The beef and a side salad was a very nice experience. Pricing was in balance with food and service. I recommend ! -matti-

Amigo is an old restaurant. Very good steaks and service. Location is in the best part of the city Kaivopuisto. It is kind of Spanish restaurant. I had lever in a cream sauce and it was perfect.

Spanish restaurant in Helsinki with tasty food and good service. Relaxing atmosphere. In the summertime they have some seats outside as well for those who are just having a drink. The trams 3B and 3T stop in the front of the restaurant so it is very easy to get there. And the Russian Embassy and a lovely park called Kaivopuisto... More

I've been to Amigo a few times and it has never let me down. Their steaks are the best you will find in Helsinki. My favorite is the pepper steak. Also they make their own olive bread, which is soooo good. For dessert I recommend the white chocolate cheese cake, yummy! The place is cozy and the staff is very... More

We went to this restaurant on local tip from a friend. Looking through the menu there were a lot of different dishes to choose from and we somehow all ended up ordering something with chicken. My chicken breast with goat cheese was just delicious and really a nice deviation from a otherwise plain chicken breast stuff... I think they only... More

Amigo is close to Kaivopuisto park and is of one the few spanish restaurants in Helsinki. They serve lunch for under €10 and diiner prices start from €15. But steaks are really awesome. Also try their home baked olive loaf, which they give for all eater for free. Great service too!
