We visited Minos with a small group of friends on a Saturday night. We were nicely welcomed and got a nice table. We ate different dishes, but we were all incredibly happy with our choices. The steak I ordered was probably the very best steak I've had in Helsinki or elsewhere. Potato gratin was also great. My friends shared a... More

Very unorganized, badly managed, expensive restaurant with bland food. No good things to say, central position maybe?

Waited 5 minutes before someone acknowledged us at the door. Eventually got pointed to a table and waited again before a very rude and grumpy older man threw some menus on the table. He then proceeded to fight loudly with another member of staff. We waited another 5 minutes and eventually decided they didn't deserve our business. Very rude staff.... More

I've eaten here a few times. I like their food, it's quite tasty, but the service is very unfriendly.

I really love greek food and this place has genuine greek food. The music, waitresses, chef, decoration all is very greek. So if that is what you are looking for - you got it. Minus side is the price. I ordered vegetarian plate with 20 euros or so but did not get a lot. What I got tasted excellent and... More

This restaurant has a nice location, it is located in Kamppi shopping center (close to the railway station), it is on the first floor (not the ground floor). I tried souvlaki, it was good. It was my first time when I ate souvlaki so I don't have anything to compare to, but I really liked it and the portion was... More

Tasty Greek flavours with big portions. It seems expensive at the first glance but if you compare the portions with other restaurants in the city I would say it is not. It is at the center of the city and has a terrace overlooking the square of Kemppi. Good music and nice service. I would go again. I was allowed... More

Tasty creek food in the big mall called Kamppi. Portions are tasty and after a starter and maincourse you will leave tummy full. Possible to sit outside as well.
