I first went to this restaurant expecting an evening with tapas and wine, but I ended up ordering a fine-dining menu, since that is what this place excels in. They prepare food in their custom-made oven and manage to invoke unique flavours from vegetables. They...More

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.

Tapas normally gives one a picture of Spanish tapas. This place, however, provides actually Sapas (Suomalainen Tapas, Finnish Tapas), which is a great thing!

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.

Family owned and run restaurant concentrating in local produce in the spirit of "cocina de mercado" - market kitchen. We believe service is what distinquishes restaurants. Food is an essential part of the service experience. Open Monday-Friday 16:00-23:00, Saturday 13:00-23:00, Sundays and most public holidays closed
