Sunday night at Maya

We found Maya after being refused entrance to Zetor because we would not leave our coats and pay for that service. It was serendipity. Maya was a great find. A warm welcome: we were allowed to sit where we wanted and with our coats. Service was friendly, swift and the food was delicious!. What... read more

Every time I go here there is a line, but it never takes too long to get a table, which is great as no reservations are taken after 17:00 on Friday or at all on Saturday. There is a bar where drinks can be enjoyed while waiting for a table. Very tasty food and affordable pricing. I especially enjoyed the... More

When we arrived in Helsinki, we walked past this restaurant on the way to our hotel, which was opposite. As it was late we didn't fancy walking around everywhere trying to find a place to eat, so decided to go here. We hadn't booked, but this wasn't a problem and the staff found us a table. The restaurant was busy,... More

Reading the reviews on this restaurant, I gave it a try for a lunch. It was a disaster. The mushroom soup was nothing like you'd expect to eat in a restaurant, and the salad buffet included small bowls of very basic mediocre vegetables, and some stale bread. I was shocked and I think having a lunch there is a blunder,... More

unfortunately my starter had a long brown hair running through it, however the waitress automatically replaced it. The mains were just very normal. The fajitos portion for 2 was extremely miserable, considering the rocket high prices. The mexican style irish coffee was probably the best thing about the meal. I also noticed how dusty the ledge above our table was.... More

Inconspicuous Latin American style restaurant. Service is friendly, smiling, English-speaking, willing to advise. The interior feels commonly but cozy. The food was delicious, made from fresh ingredients and nicely served. I had, for example, a Brazilian feijoada with meat of red deer and it was absolutely fabulous! We even tried the local cocktails and it was alright.

Ate here recently whilst I was travelling in Helsinki. First impressions on entering wasn't great, however the staff were really friendly and the service was very quick even though the restaurant was fairly busy for a Tuesday night. The food was, in general good, I had prawns to start and fajitas as a main course; both were well cooked and... More

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.
