This independant ,cozy,next door-on-the-block restaurant is sure worth a visit.It is not situated in the citycenter of Helsinki(,the location is in Herttoniemenranta about 10 km from citycenter)Good ,delicious,well seasoned and prepared food.This is not fine-dining.The meny is meditteranen inspired from snails,gambas,salads,fish,pasta,to real steaks as the most best "Black Angus entrecote.Very reasonable prices,also among the winelist!In the summertime there is a...

We went this place once several years ago and all that I can remember is that we got terribly spicy paella. After that the restaurant has been chosen the best local restaurant in Helsinki, so we decided to give it another try hoping that something has changed over the years. Unfortunately the second try wasn't any better, even if we... More

We went there twice. The first time, some years ago, we ordered seafood paella, and it was like eating fire. Way to spicy for even being worth to be called paella! Yesterday we went back there to try the widely announced "new menu". Disaster! Fortunately at least we got the appetizers for free, or I would have called it a... More

I am spanish. This restaurant has a curious mix with flamenco music, Barça sign, 'toros' (bulls) on the door and some kind of spanish food, but prepared the finish way. Was shocking for me, believe me. But the result is good. The meat was prepared ok, even if you never had this flavour in Spain. But if you are finish,... More

We went there one evening near closing time with our 8 friends and were we ever so suprised. The steaks were perfectly done to our taste and garlic potatoes very good. Good winelist. We got superb service and the keeper didn't rush out even though it was long past closing time. Very small place. We'll definately go back.

I've had dinner here many many times and the food is always fantastic. Everything I have ever tasted has been perfect but the steak with peppersauce is my favourite. The service is good and the owner is very friendly and always has time for a little chat. This place is highly recommended!

For true friends of good food! If you think mcdonalds is cool or you ask your steak well done in a restaurant this is not a place for you! This place is for people who can tell the difference between ok and good food. Even the house win is chosen with warmth and love to suite any dish!

A very good Spanish restaurant, which has also reasonable priced paella on the menu (genuine paella is a real rarity in Helsinki). Although it is located in suburb this place is worth to visit. Location is in a modern sea side neighborhood which has also some architectural interest , plus you can combine a sea side walk to your excursion,... More
