The starters were great. Had some nachos with guacamole and sweet potato fries. I ordered tacos tinga de pollo for the main course and it was probably the worst Mexican meal I've had at a restaurant. The tacos were loaded with tasteless chicken and a pile of completely off-putting daikon, and I could not find any of the other listed... More

The tacos I ordered were a bit unconventional, but still really delicious. My only complaint is that I found the portion to be a bit small for what i ended up paying. I suppose the idea was that I should have ordered a beer or some gaucamole to start, but they, too, were a bit expensive. I'd gladly go back... More

A simple menu serving Mexican eats and drinks. Our server explained the menu and provided some tips on what to go for. The drinks are great and my margarita had a very salty and spicy rim. Delicious! The taco's were stacked high and were delicious. We'd give the Lime Pie a miss next time as it was a bit strange,... More

First of all, the drinks were great! I had the Picante y Fresco and my friend the Mezcal/Limoncello. But, having lived in Mexico, I was looking for familiar tastes and corn(!) tortillas, neither of which I received. We had two main dishes, with pork and beef, but the meat was dry and overall, we weren't happy with the meal. The... More

My husband and I have been going to Patrona to celebrate our birthdays ever since it opened up in Helsinki several years back. It was our absolute favourite place to go since it had such good quality of authentic Mexican food. We didn't go last year and needless to say, our experience last night was a bit different. The food... More

This place had the best guac I've ever had. We sat at the bar and it was a pleasure to watch the bartender - he was very talented! The food we ordered was also delicious, and I was happy to see so many vegetarian options. I only gave this place four stars because it was a bit pricey - 19... More

The food is excellent, there is no doubt. But 19€ for a very small plate of relatively simple and "mediocre" good food is not worth it. Definitely not worth the price if you look for just the food, but it seems like a nice place otherwise.

We visited the place this week. Nice place, good service but highly over priced. 48€ for such menu was disappointment.

After the changes it's more closer to traditional tex mex place. But the food is still good (not as great as it was) and the margaritas rock. Would take the menu back to what it was (less tex-mex, home made nachos, more options including soups) - don't fix what ain't broken!
