I have visited Bar Favela several times for different occasions. It offered a perfect space for a get-together of 40 people for Christmas drinks and snacks last year. After that, it has served tasty food for both my family and friends and it is an...More

This is a brand new place which replaced a more fine dining place few which didn't make it in this location. Bar Favela is very informal place with just a few options on food menu. There are sandwiches with beef, pork etc. which are made...More

Delicious food with affordable prices. Professional service. Only problem is maybe location because Meche is not in the centre of Helsinki. See detailed review from reijosfood.com

Meche is not really a traditional bistro restaurant, but more somewhere in the middleground of fine dining & bistro. Some of the dishes had a lot of technique and finesse. We had a party of six enjoying a 4-course surprise menu. The food was very...More
