Food was decent but priced quite steeply. Crowded at night.

For yrs it used to be THE place for tapas in Helsinki. Now they given in and sold their souls to greedyness. So shame, portions are really small with no wow effect anymore. Patatas bravas... can't even say. With 7€ you get three small prawns etc. etc. So sad. I will miss Tapasta much. R.I.P.

First time we were there it was the best experience in a while. Great food, great wine, great atmosphere, great service. It was so good we went back after few months. All was the same except food was not as tasty. Seamed like they changed the chef. Third time we went back after half a year. Portions got a lot smaller. Last time we got full with 2 tapas each but this time with 1 less we did not get full at all. Went back to grab something small before going to other restaurant and the patatas bravas were not even cooked properly. They were nice on the outside but really hard in the inside. Has to send them back. But they were nice and did not charge anything and apologized. But i wouldn't say service is all that great. We noted that we were there for birthday when reserved and they did not care at all. Also when i wrote that we were not satisfied they did not react at all. Wine and sangria is always superb though! so this has been my experience.

NOTE: place is very small. i mean really small. like 18 people small. but super cozy.

Anyone who loves Spanish tapas will like Bar Tapasta. As a vegetarian, I found this restaurant to be a refreshing break from Finnish food (sorry! I know others love reindeer). Our advice - order at least 6 or 7 tapas for two people (we only did 5 and it wasn't enough) and SKIP the Sangria - it was terrible.
