Delicious traditional Spanish food in the centre of Helsinki. Friendly service. Wine prices are pretty high which is usual in Finland.
In the first photo there is mussels soup, in the second Valencian paella.
The Parrillo Espanola is a Spanish restaurant in the centre of Helsinki City. The interior feels comfortable and the dishes are in accordance to what you expect from good restaurants in Spain. The staff is always friendly, speaks English and provides support where required. The...beef I ordered was cooked to the point and the entire food was delicious. The wine offered is excellent and expensive. The missing fifth star goes especially to the price performance ratio: The quality of food is really excellent - and the pricing is a bit overdone.More
This restaurant has been in the same place, with the same format, for 40 years. Still going strong! This was the third time I visited there, and again everything was great. Food is so delicious, environment is peaceful, and mediterranean. Wines are great, prices a...bit high, but compared to the quality, ok. We recommend to take the full course, tapas', Grilled beef fillet "Parrilla Española", and Creme Cataluna. Only, but very small minus, was too Quick service, waiters should wait a bit, when one portion is finished, eaten up. Anyhow, we recommend this place, very highly. Go and test, if ya want a peaceful place to eat great food, and spend quality time with someone special.More
We celebrated a friend’s birthday in this traditional Spanish restaurant that has existed in the same location in Helsinki city for several decades.
It was easy to pick the dishes as the food menu was limited, particularly for vegetarian items. We decided to do meat...and shared a tapas plate (25 e for normal size, we had it made bigger for to satisfy 3 hungry people) and some fried shrimps (13e) as starters. The tapas was excellent but the shrimp dish felt a bit plain in comparison. Luckily the bread that came with it was fresh and hearty.
We shared the Cour de filet (69e), recommended for two, between us as the main course. Given the generous starters, there was enough to eat there for us three. The meat was melt-in-the-Mouth tender, cooked just right, served with potatoes and some veg. The dish was excellent.
Service was polite and the waiter very knowledgeable in everything from Spanish meats to wine. We had a great time and will go back for the food!More
We were here last year and had a great dinner, so decided to go again....and we still had a great dinner. Competition in restaurant business is cruel, so it's great that these kind of restaurants still exists. They've been at their current location from 1973...and still family owned. Large menu full of Spanish flavours and our Tapas plate for 2 and main course Shrimps were delicious. Laidback atmosphere and it was nice to hear stories from last decades from their ownerMore
i take a dinner to parrilla espanola,i hardly recomend this place for how they are like spanish cuisine.the lamb is amaiying ,the vine is perfect..if is winter you cand fell the spanish warm,i have just positive memories,THANKS!
Friday dinner with a couple of friends. We decided to start with Escarcots in garlic which was good but a little unsurprising ... well, maybe it even should not be.
We shared "Coeur de filet" which was a good choice, medium prepared, really smooth and...tasty. Recommended Vino Tinto Arzuaga Crianza accompanied the dish well.
As Chocolate fondant was stated to be prefabricated I chose house made Crema Catalana with coffee and some dessert wine whose name I missed.
Personnel was very friendly and casually attentive which also contributed to a successful evening.More
