“If you like cowboys and indians...”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Perfect place to enjoy a dinner and some beers with a group of friends. Down to earth and real like a proper diner should be. Also works as a lunch or family restaurant on afternoons.

Most restaurants in Helsinki serve fast food type steaks in their burgers and avarage steaks. Colorado puts more effort into their meat and you can taste it.

Few years ago Colorado was a known hang out for local celebrities and you can still run into some there.

“Popular place, for a reason”
Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

I had tuna steak which was really tasty. Great dish with no potatoes/rice/pasta! Oven-baked ice-cream did not exceed my expectations but it was good enough. Place was full of people late in thursday evening. Little too crowded to my taste. I'll be back another time.

“American-size portions”
Reviewed August 6, 2011

I've eaten in Colorado more than once and have enjoyed the meal both times. It's located in the centre (although hidden by building works at the moment). Go there if you're hungry as the portions are large or if you have a taste for American or TexMex food. In the summer there's an area at the front serving a bar menu and a terrace overlooking the Kamppi square serving the restaurant menu.

The restaurant has ok service and is usually busy with a healthy mix of business people, locals and tourists. There's nothing wrong with the quality of the food yet it often tastes bland. The menu has a wide choice of burger, fajitas, steaks etc.

Kaukana vanhasta kunnon Coloradosta. Vähän kuin Premium Chicos.
