Everything is good or excellent in this little restaurant outside city center of Helsinki. They really know there how to season food. You can also have there two different paellas (min. for 2 persons each). I highly recommend this little restaurant if you want to experience some spanish atmosphere. Service is not super but not lousy either. And by the... More

Over the years I have visited this Spanish restaurant for several times. Now it had been couple years since my last visit. I had pasta del mar. Defiantly good, but I feel the taste was not as good as it used to be. Surrounding is cousy but look of the menu is as appealing as in fast food restaurants. They... More

This is our family's goto place for evening dinners. The food is excellent and and quality is consistent beating most down town (non-fine dining) places. Excellent quality-price ratio. We eat here once a month and have not met anything on the list which wouldn't be delicious. If I would be a tourist visiting Helsinki I would take a cab (or... More

The Pasta marinesco with clams and shrimp was good. Will be back, the wine list also looked interesting.

Delicious food and very good value for money. Beautiful location next to sea. My husband always orders the chicken piri piri and I absolutely love "Lucioperca". We highly recommend!

Interesting small restaurant at Herttoniemenranta served delicous lamb fillet as main course. We enjoyed Mother's Day lunch in a cozy atmosphere. Serving went swiftly and smoothly, the fillet was tasty. On top of all positive things we were happy to see that the presentation of the courses, especially desserts, were excellent. The price of main course and desser together was... More

We went this place once several years ago and all that I can remember is that we got terribly spicy paella. After that the restaurant has been chosen the best local restaurant in Helsinki, so we decided to give it another try hoping that something has changed over the years. Unfortunately the second try wasn't any better, even if we... More

We went there twice. The first time, some years ago, we ordered seafood paella, and it was like eating fire. Way to spicy for even being worth to be called paella! Yesterday we went back there to try the widely announced "new menu". Disaster! Fortunately at least we got the appetizers for free, or I would have called it a... More

I am spanish. This restaurant has a curious mix with flamenco music, Barça sign, 'toros' (bulls) on the door and some kind of spanish food, but prepared the finish way. Was shocking for me, believe me. But the result is good. The meat was prepared ok, even if you never had this flavour in Spain. But if you are finish,... More
