“Spain in Helsinki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Tapas Y Copas brings Spain into Helsinki, even though the weather outside most of the year does not. This family run operation has found it's permanent residence at Fabianinkatu in the middle of Helsinki.

Expect to get excellent and yet warm friendly service. Just decide the number of tapas per person and you will be taken care of. They are tasty, decorative and innovative with seasonal touch. The new facilities with new grill will also bring you selected warm dish if you are still hungry after the tapas.

Wine, could you find better expertice of Miguel Torres' wines from Spain and New World in Helsinki, or actually anywhere? For me, as Perpetual lover, this is the place to get this wine from Priorato, Spain, by the glass. And do not forget to order at least few slices of the house cheese, they are perfect match for your last drop or glass of the reds. And if you dare, ask what sweet wines are on todays list.

My sincere recommendation if you are looking for light dinner with tapas or full dinner and like the full Torres wine range.

“Really tasty tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Copas y Tapas has great personal service in a Finnish way. You don't choose the tapas yourself, you just tell how many you want and then you get the choice of the day. At least for me this worked perfectly and the tapas was really tasty.

“Ab fab!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is the place I go to if I want to have a good time with a friend with nice tapas, great wines and great service. The restaurant is pretty small but cozy, and the family that owns the place are the nicest people in the restaurant business in Helsinki. You always leave with your stomach full of good food, and feeling like a VIP. :)

“Delicious food, great service and interesting wine list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This was my 2nd visit to this restaurant and if possible it was even better than the first visit. The place was packed on Friday night but the waiters had time to introduce each portion and wine with great care.
We had the three tapas set for starters and the smoked fish mousse is exceptional! Wine recommendations were perfect and all wines, even Mas La Plana, were available by the glass for moderate prices.
