We selected this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews, but unfortunately this one was one out of seven restaurant ratings that mislead us totally. 9 out of our 12 people in our group found the food tasteless. Especially the Psaria mix grill (seafood) was a bid disappointment. I do not remember tasting such a tasteless seafood portion for years. The meat... More

This place is the most authentic greek restaurant I have found in Finland so far. The staff is friendly and the food is best described as amazing. Take a trip to Mediterranean and try this place. Little hard to find and the entrance doesn't do it justice, but the interior is really cozy.

The food in this restaurant is good! But I find it very weird that we went to a Greek restaurant and they didn't have moussaka or stifado available just because "it's Tuesday" (although they were on the menu). And the waiter mentioned this only when we tried to order those portions. In my opinion, the most traditional foods should be... More

Very old and traditional Greek restaurant in Helsinki. Food is good and Ala Carte covers Greek areas very well. In my opinion it was a bit pricy but I was lucky. I did not pay the bill. Thanks to my Host. Would I go back with my own money ? I think I will make my own Stifado at home... More

This is a lovely Greek restaurant in the Kallio district. Away from the bars and the pubs, it's quiet and has a great atmosphere. The food was delicious and the staff was a delight! Recommending.

It is a local restaurant just next to the hotel I stay in when in Helsinki. Staff is extremely funny and makes you feel welcome. Starters are great, great dolmades and fantastic Stifado, and some Greek wine to go along. It is not a fancy place, but very good food.

Good Greek menu and friendly service. It adviced to make a reservation to be sure. If you are with a group the plate with different Greek food is best to order. Although I travelled alone I had a good feeling and tasty diner. Very important and helped me to brake 2 world records next day.

I like Zorbas and would not hesitate to recommend it to someone looking for Greek food in Helsinki. However, I felt that their menu is authentic and homely, but over priced. For example, I ordered last time the calamari salad and, while the calamari tasted fresh and perfectly fried, the rest of the salad was bland, something you'd expect from... More

I have been living close to this restaurant for a very long time but never visited or heard anything about it. It was Sunday night and we were walking by and heard a loud music coming from the restaurant, as we were getting closer we noticed that the music was actually being played live by few guys. Not performing but... More

We love Greek food and Taverna Zorbas is offering the most authentic and delicious food. I recommend this restaurant being convinced that everybody... More
