The place is very tiny, so I have always made a reservation before. Saturday evenings are crowded and noisy, but people really seem to enjoy the atmosphere and the food, so the hurly-burly doesn´t matter. House chips and aioli are worth trying. Staff is busy but friendly.

The place is small but cosy. Service was friendly and our waitress know about the food she served. They make their own tapenade and other sauces whice were really tasty and well balanced. House Chips and aioli and Manchego with tomato-vanilla compot were the best portions of the visit. Chorizo was better than in many places in Helsinki but still not top quality - like you get in good places in Spain. Chorizo seems to travel poor. Pork was a bit dry but tapenade that came with it was delicious. Same goes with lamb, meat was just ok but romesco sauce excellent. I tried both Rositas and they really were quality beers. This place is good value for your money.

One of the first tapas restaurants in Helsinki which had it's heyday 10 years ago. After years of decline they have finally come back. New modern interior and decent food again. Most of the food has to be selected from the menu (not very spanish..) but the quality is good although even by Finnish standards the price is pretty steep...
