When we booked Copas Y Tapas we were expecting Spanish style tapa sharing plates with a Finnish flair. Since our booking the restaurant changed it's food service. They now offer a set menu with 3 small starter tapas and a selection of main courses. The...More

Dear Patti, Thank you for your review. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit. We are aware that the name of the restaurant can be a bit misleading nowadays, and I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. We originally set out to open a restaurant...More

Super nice atmosphere, excellent service by a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great to see foraged ingredients, locally sourced produce that make up the Finnish tapas. Would like to sample the wines with more time. Food wine pairing spot on.

Mixing the hot-tempered Latin vibes with the Finnish melancholy can become bland. The tastes lack in strength and it is all a little too boring.

Service done right by the relaxed but professional staff. Great wine selection, great parings with the food. Food is served as a menu, including three tapas starters chosen by kitchen, protein dish and desert or cheese or both. Starters were excellent and the fish beautifully...More

It was a short walk from our hotel, so based on reviews, we tried it on our first night. It was busy but we got a nice table for two. Our "mystery" tapas (we requested no shellfish) comprised celeriac & cheese foam, chicken liver mousse...More

We went very positively predisposed about this place. Having read all the raving reviews we were expecting something phenomenal. It's not. It's a very nice restaurant, with great quality food. But the variety is very limited and the price too expensive for what it offers....More

Friendly personal service and good food with lots and lots of the best ingredients Finland can offer. But is it tapas? No... if you take the tapas perception away, your expectations are more realistic. But certainly worth a visit to treat your tastebuds for a...More

This is the restaurant, where we are going every year at least two times, usually when we celebrate birthdays. Every time we concluded, that it is the best restaurant in the city with great hospitality and tasty food. Do not expect Spanish food because of...More

Don't let the restaurant's name fool you - this place is all about Finland. Okay, with a touch of Spain, they have probably the largest selection of Spanish wines in Helsinki. Pure Finnish ingredients mixed with imagination to create wonderful food, and probably the best...More

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 Tuesday-Friday 16:00-23:00, Saturday 13:00-23:00, Sundays and most public holidays closed
