Great steak

Steak (the Grilled fillet beef-steak "Parrilla Española") was perfect. Wine recommended by the waiter was really nice with the steak (Gran Sangre de Toro) as well. I ordered my steak medium and it really was medium; which is very rarely the case in Helsinki... I would recommend this restaurant to... read more

To my great surprise, I seem to have walked passed this place for about 40 years and never noticed it. Fourth generation now running the family business. Nevertheless, my family and I will not forget this place now. The food was absolutely great: high quality, perfectly cooked and presented with clean flavours. See images attached. Sangria and wine recommendations, and... More

Visited the plave with my student daughter who was missing a really good steak. This place is old and used to serve one of the best steaks in town with a really great grilled meat flavor (that's what the "parilla" means, made on open fire). Meat quality was okay, but the the great flavor was gone. Very basic taste which... More

Last thursday evening we wanted to eat nice in Helsinki. We found recommendations for this restaurant just a few steps from Mannerheimintie. Beef fillet Santanderina with cayenne pepper sauce was great. Wines were tasty too. The location was almost empty (because of the hot weather I think) but it didn't bother us. Etsimme keskustasta ravintolaa, jossa voisimme juhlistaa merkkipäivää pihveillä... More

Ran into this spanish themed steak restaurant by accident and just made the 10pm last orders. Mika and his team (family run business) were very friendly and accommodating, happy with our every request. Three of us shared snails and garlic prawns to start and we all had well flavoured and nicely cooked entrecote. Mika made a superb wine recommendation, way... More

Have visited this place several times, each time a great experience.. The steak I had was perfectly cooked, lovely sauce and an extremely attentive waiter......he even persuaded me to have the creme Catalan, which was very well done indeed! Hats off to you all!

I dont know where to start... We got the mixed tapas platter for 24 Eur for 2 ppl. It was far from Spanish, cold meatballs from the fridge with no taste, some olives, 2 slices chorizo, 2 slices jamon serrano from the supermarket, other cold ready made stuff which I cannot name. Next was garlic soup (=hot ketchup and rough... More

I was hoping for a good spanish restaurant, since this has some awards, but the food isn't really spanish, although it is good food anyhow. Book in advance, even for couples, really busy place.

I have known this place through many years and I like it. Small Spanich yards in that tables are, candelights on tables, tasty dishes, excellent wine card and even San Miguel beer. In menu the beef and paella are the best of all. The restaurant is small enough so at week-ends it's need to reserve table.

The interior design and atmosphere almost had me convinced I had arrived to some village somewhere on Costa del Sol. Which of course makes you expect the food is very Costa del Sol too. Then the tapas plate arrived and back to Finland it was. There's more to tapas than serving olives, mushrooms, jamon Serrano, chorizo etc. on a plate...... More
