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.

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
