A colleague and I chose this restaurant and were not disappointed. Excellent service from the waiter describing and choosing the wine for us. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. It's not the cheapest of places but worth it for the quality.

Copas y Tapas is situated right downtown Helsinki, both parking and a tramstop nearby. The place is plain but elegant. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable - it shows that the owner is present and cares about his customers. To celebrate the Int'l Womens Day the aperitif offered was a rosé cava. While not to my liking the touch was nice.... More

We visited this restaurant during an overnight layover in Helsinki. The menu consists of either a vegetarian, fish or meat option which are created fresh daily. To start you get three tapas based on your selection. And then you get a main course and dessert. All the food is extremely fresh and locally provided.

It is a very nice restaurant with very high quality service level. The restaurant offers a 3-tapas starter and a main course to be chosen from 4 options. Tapas very quite delicious. My wife and I chose different main courses (rabbit, lamb) and both were quite good. The most important thing I would like to highlight in this place is... More

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
