We went to the place as a group of 23 people and it accommodated us well. The place is huge, very suitable for birthdays and other group events. The staff is really nice and friendly. The food is delicious. Fair price and good portion.

Reasonably priced for 4 adults with entrees and mains and 2 beers each at a cost of about €150. I can highly recommend the ribs.

Mothers day buffet was average and basically ok but 42 EUR per person you would expect something totally different level. The food was looking as a just ordinary work day buffet.

Cantina west, one of the few restaurants that has survived the turmoils of Helsinki restaurant world through the decades. The recipe works; well-made tex-mex food with reasonable prices. It won't blow your mind with small artistic portions but will feed you and leave you happy....More
