We arrived late and on checking into our hotel found this restaurant to be open next dooe. we strolled in for dinner. The food was average, though the portions were large. Its open till the wee hours of the morning which is the best part. Being a vegetarian i had no problem and found several options to choose from. Location... More

Our first night in Helsinki. Looking for reasonably priced veggie food and found this Tex Mex option. The portions were huge but slightly bland however it certainly filled us up. Clean, warm and welcoming

This is not amazing food. But, it is decent food at a reasonable price and it is open when everything else in the neighborhood is closed. Also, super friendly staff, which makes up for a lot.

Here they serve some kind of Mexican Taco buffet with pizza..and strangely enough with fish soup. The pizza was hard to find since it seem to be eaten up faster that baked. Nice staff an OK price.

We popped in here for a drink just to get out of the cold. The beers on tap were good. Then we ordered strawberry margaritas but they were pretty weak. They explained that the Finnish laws are strict and they can only add so much alcohol. It was a happening place, the tables were filling up around us and the... More

We arrived in Helsinki late Friday night and the hotel staff told us this was the only place nearby still serving food. We were hungry so we went. I had the worst burrito of my life, but I guess I should have known better. You don't go to Finland for the Mexican food. This place may be okay for drinks,... More

As I came to this restaurant solo in search for a great Mexican restaurant i think my expectations were a bit let down. Being half Mexican I am aware of authentic dishes and am always searching for great fajitas or tacos in other countries. As it appears to have a variety of dishes most seemed generic and not filled with... More

The excitement of eating Mexican food goes away as you eat your burrito... Not quality food, poor taste, and no creativity. We could have guessed it watching the menu : a Mexican restaurant that also cooks burgers and pasta... that says it all.

Had dinner here with friends. Order your food at the bar counter, so don't expect the waitress to come to your seat to take the orders. Drinks are served very efficiently and quickly. However dinner/food took almost 45 minutes to arrive. Must be a busy night. Ordered Salmon Soup, Salmon Burger, Pizza, Salmon Taco which are good. Another friend is... More
