The atmospehere was cosy and service friendly throughout the night. The tapas sortiment was good, the main courses were nice, though not especially Spanish, and also a bit pricey. The location near the Market Place and Senate Square is good, the restaurant itself a bit worn out.

Been there a dozen times, and always been happy when leaving. One of the only spanich-type-of-restaurants in Helsinki (really, there are only a handful of them), and probably the best! Innovative spanish food, try the paella if the have it - strongly recommended. Not cheap, nor filthy expensive. Worth a visit!

We had dinner there my steak was cold changed without a problem paellas were like overcooked rice and the prawns and the vegetables like straight from a can. Waitress was pleasant but you definitely don't get value for money. It is unbelievable that a restaurant can serve such lousy food!

Nice selection of interesting tapas! House red reasonable and reasonable price !! Courgette tapas not worth the price as just few almost raw slices! Very friendly and informed staff :)

A nice place to get a quick drink, snack, and rest for a few minutes. Sit outside and people watch without feeling like you will be run over by the crowds. Try the flan!

Salad for lunch which was good but quite pricey considering the ingredients. Possible the most expensive lettuce I've ever eaten.

Ok, but in my mind nothing special. We visited Nuevo with my mom and it felt like we had to wait for the check for ages. Also, the food did not feel that Spanish to us. But my mother lives in Spain so our standards maybe quite high...

Our experience was fantastic. This restaurant is just on the main square. Our server was extremely friendly and met our every need. The seafood in the Paella was fabulous. The ice cream is home made and very good. We went there on our last night (too bad - because we would have gone back again, it was that good).

My travelling partner and I came across this lovely restaurant by chance, for a late lunch. Located on a side street from the north Esplanade. I ordered a white goat cheese salad with raspberry vinegar, I don't remember if it was pricey since most eating experinces in Helsinki cost "a lot".

Restaurant is nicely and centrally located between Havis Amanda (statue square) and Senate Square. Same time it is quite well hidden on side street. Entering restaurant, warm colors welcome you and good feeling in interior continues through out the restaurant. By the, if you use the bathroom, watch out the step entering. Wine list was very nice, even though I... More
