Our meals were on the large side but fantastic, well presented with great sides. You could sit outside in the cool of the shade and just watched the world go by

It was a beautiful sunny evening and looked as if entire Helsinki had poured on streets to enjoy the summer. The outside seating was full and having a baby with us, we settled for a table inside. The interior reminded of a Victorian era tavern with spiked grills in roof. For starter we chose Iguana platter (Deep-fried mozzarella cheese jalapenos,... More

Just stopped here for a meal as we really fancied pasta but couldn't find a decent Italian restaurant anywhere with outside seating that wasn't terribly overpriced.

We stopped in here for a well earned drink after a lot of sightseeing in the City and the staff were very friendly and the drinks were reasonably priced. We didn't eat here but plenty of people were doing so and mainly it looked like a buffet which we were not hungry enough to attempt.

Handy place near to station and shops. Friendly service and food is simple, fairly cheap and filling - you can just have snacks or a full meal. Quick service. Good place also to watch sports, but is not too noisy if you are eating. Tables outside in the summer too.

Me and my girlfriend went to Iguana for our lunch and ordered the beef and chicken burritos. The service was quick and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and served with a decent side salad and nachos with salsa. Very impressed and would definitely visit again.
