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!

The staff was really friendly and cleaned up empty dishes super fast. I expected more out of the food, I think it was in serious need of some seasoning. Margarita was good and the music created a nice atmosphere.

This place used to be my nr 1 favourite. Cancelled the mains after receiving some crisp and some soggy nachos - and 70% of them were spoon-edible crumble. Didn't expect that for 12€. Huge disapointment for sure.

Patrona has a nice vibe, and is great place for a drink and a light snack. I was pleasantly surprised to find both high quality margaritas and high quality ceviche there. However, as a dinner place it didn't really work. The 'main' dishes are a small selection of tacos. We went for the meat taco, and these were unfortunately a... More

Food was good, no complaints about that. But, the customer service was horrible. Me and my friend ordered cocktails and when the waiter brought the drinks, he slopped my drink over me! That was horrible but even worse was that the waiter didn't apologize that at all. He said something like "Ups, here's a tissue, I'll bring you a new... More
