Tapas normally gives one a picture of Spanish tapas. This place, however, provides actually Sapas (Suomalainen Tapas, Finnish Tapas), which is a great thing! Excellent 3 starterts, meaning the tapas: liquerice-salmon was one, very innovative! Also dessert made of artichoke, pudding style, was a imaginative, but very tasty! Also, the recommended wines were of very good price/quality ratio. The only... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the tapas and the dessert, and it is unfortunate that the main course wasn't to your liking We're sorry that you didn't enjoy the beef brisket. If you had told us at the time, we would've, of course, prepared a new portion for you. The sauce was... More

A very good tapas restaurant. All dishes are made in tapas way, but with Nordic/Finnish touch and inspiration. The service is excellent and really had a good evening at this restaurant.

My best meal in Helsinki. Exquisite marriage of food and wines. Fresh produces, ideal portions, perfect combination of ambition and generosity, no fuss, no snobbery, just high quality. Professional, knowledgeable and kind host. I am in awe and thankful.

We visited Helsinki in January 2017. We want to start with our waiter (a gentleman from Bretagne - we unfortunately didn't catch his name) who was so passionate, explaining each course in detail and asking us after each course whether we liked it. We actually thought he was the owner of the restaurant he was so passionate. There is no... More

Atmosphere is pure within this restaurant with professional service and brilliant food. But time after time I come back because of the wines and again service is excellent!

The service and the atmosphere in the restsurant was really excellent, the food excellent, the wine and sherry we had with the meal were well chosen. The formula with a choice of a main meal and a surprise... More

The pleasant surprise offered by a cheerful young lady offered two options with Yes:-) as the other one was ok for us. The restarant sits... More

This restaurant is simply just wonderful. They have excellent, 5-star food. The top-notch wines they serve are always recommended to match with the daily menu and they cannot be found anywhere else in the city (or country). Also, the staff of this family owned restaurant is super friendly and professional. If you are having a night out with friends, loved-ones... More

We visited this restaurant with some friends for dinner. The food is really fantastic and the wines are excellent. Probably one of the best restaurants in Helsinki today. Service was very attentive and they also explained the dishes and wines very well. Can highly recommend Copas y Tapas for anyone who loves good food.

Great restaurant. Fixed price three course menu; entree was three mini tapas (no choice), main was a choice of fish, meat, steak and veg, and dessert was semi freddo or cheese. I really enjoyed all the options, and so did our 3 year old, even though the food was a little adventurous - octopus etc! The semi freddo was divine... 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 Monday-Friday 16:00-23:00, Saturday 13:00-23:00, Sundays and most public holidays closed
