We had lunch at Iguana after 21 hours travelling... So we were very hungry. Lunch was 10€ and included different kind of salads, few different flavor pizza, tex-mex table and some homemade food. Lunch was worth of money. Next time choose Iguana to have a lunch!

Coming in first night, not always very high standards. Ended up at Iguana's and was positively surprised. Nicely priced burgers and nice wine!

I've been here frequently for a drink or two and also for the food. Portions are large but quality very average. Nothing real Mexican here. Staff are nice and fast. Strongbow cider is on tap and for a good price in Helsinki. They also have German wheat beer (Franziskaner). It's a nice place for a few drinks and people watching... More

Excellent place for Mexican or pizza. The tacos salad, tacos, salmon soup and burritos were wonderful. One bartender takes all orders ( very efficiently) against cash / card and waiters serve you at your table. Overall a really pleasant experience. Portions are very large so for 4 persons order only 2 or 3 dishes. We over ordered and without booze... More

Went there to get some hangover food and it was really good decision to do so! Fajitas was big and not too spicy. Side salad could be more crispy and fresh. Staff seemed friendly and interior was cosy. Not bad and will go there again. But if you are looking for authentic mexican food, go somewhere else.

Had a couple of hours as stopover in Helsinki. Wish to try some traditional Finnish meals but didn't come across one. I was so exhausted and having seen this place from the outside which looks ok, I entered without further thoughts. It's a fair choice. I ordered fish soup and pasta (cream penne) as my late lunch. The food offered... More

There are a few of these restaurants around Helsinki. They sell basic staples and are not expensive. The food is ok as it is basically fast food. Once per visit is sufficient.
