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.

The restaurant was located right next to our hotel so we decided to give this place a shot when we saw that there were many other diners as well. This is always a good sign. The food was tasty; we were not amazed but not disappointed either. I asked to have my food without any onions and there was no... More

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!
