Description: Family owned and run restaurant concentrating in local produce in the spirit of "cocina de mercado" - market kitchen. We believe service is what distinquishes restaurants. Food is an essential part of the service experience. Open Monday-Friday 16:00-23:00, Saturday 13:00-23:00, Sundays and most public holidays closed

“Great food and cosy atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

We have eaten here a few times now. Food has always been excellent. The concept is that there is no menu, the restaurant prepares dishes from ingredients what they currently have according to the season. Excellent tapas and wide selection of great Spanish wines.The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the food and wines. Highly recommended!

“Interesting as it is tasty!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

So this is Finnish tapas, largely based on Spanish or Spanish adapted recipes but made with locally sourced Finnish ingredients.

Unfussy design makes foods the star and it is a star. The lack of a menu is odd but the staff are knowledgeable and provide good recommendations for wine matching (you can ask for a wine list if you want a bottle). The food itself is excellent, inventive and well prepared we had 5 tapas each + cheese board to share which was just about enough but if your hungry do go for the main meal option.

Much much better than the over priced tourist options in the vicinity.

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

This is an authentic food and wine lovers restaurant. The theme is Spanish (wines for example) but one of the waiters is French and the food is really great. Everything is fresh and the dishes are completed local wild herbs collected in nearby districts. The French waiter is very nice, but persuasive in a pleasant, friendly way.
