“Nice try, but lacking taste and passion”
Review of Dos Amigos - CLOSED

Dos Amigos
Cuisines: Spanish
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have been eating in this restaurant many times because this is the restaurant of my standard hotel when staying in Kuopio. I have tried several dishes in the menu.

Tapas dishes are OK and quite big. Actually if you take a couple of tapas dishes you could even think to skip the main course. But that's where the good news end. Fruity chicken salad with warm fruits doesn't have any other taste than warm fruits. That's not very pleasant. In paella you can't taste anything else than chili or something hot. I think it ruins the taste of "frutti di mare". Liver is quite good as are the meat balls but there's nothing special. I've never managed to take any desert so I can't say anything of them.

What should change then? Taste. Put other tastes than chili, garlic and mayonnaise in the dishes. I feel that there's no passion in the list and it's just an old boring menu even though it's said that the menu is just renewed. Take some of the energy from waitresses and let is show on the plate!

Excellent location in the middle of the city. Food good. Paella was filling and tasty. Polite service except the waiter forgot our order. Wine selection weak. I can recommend this place.

This restaurant is inside to newly renowated hotel Atlas. We love spanish food so expectations were high. The appetizers didn't betray our expectations, they were awesome! But main courses didn't turn out so well. Paella lacked some spices and potatoes were dry. I would recommed this place for starting place of your restaurant cruise.
