Walked around the corner and found this place. Food was good, plentiful and for Helsinki priced ok. Slightly different from what I would call normal Mexican.

Didn't book, but able to get a table straight away ( 7pm ish /Thursday) Helpful waitress who was happy to give advice and adapt a dish ....... service was fine. Food very enjoyable, expensive but probably typical Helsinki prices - 40 euros for a meal for two ( main course only). Casual atmosphere.

After living in Latin America for some years, I expected Maya Bar and Grill, located just across the street from the Radisson Plaza where I stayed, to be phony and plastic. It is anything but. Painted brick walls, wooden/leather chairs, mix of reggeaton and long forgotten latin heroes on the stereo teleports you out of Finland and leaves you in... More

Enjoyed a nice selection of Tapas followed by a lovely salad. Service very friendly. Not a bad option for a casual meal with friends. Price pretty good for the area.

Simple and exquicito: Imagine the best smoked salmon in the world (Finland) cooked by a Mexican chef, accompanied by a sauvignon blanc. The service is outstanding and friendly. Overlooking the square ... anything else?

Overpriced (though that is common for restaurants in Helsinki)Tiny portions sizes. Terrible service, hard to get the waiters' attention. Beautiful food, the only upside!

I really enjoyed my stay. I had a good cocktail, terrific fajitas and a corona. Prices are very good compared to the rest of Helsinki. Nice waiters. Free bottle of water with your food.
