2 Asema-aukio, Helsinki, Finland
Casa Largo - Outdoor seating and the 'tapas' mention which lured us into their trap.
Casa Largo - Casual over the lunch hour - even counter seating available.
Casa Largo - A well stocked wine cabinet suggests things might be more upscale after the lunch hour.
Casa Largo - Lunch time sandwich special.  Good, but what a calorie bomb! ...after lunch walk, anyone?
Casa Largo - Tasty bowl of soup and bread for a starter
Casa Largo - The unused, but classy dining areas seemed poised for a dinner crowd.

Nada Tapas? Jun 20, 2016
We had a good dining experience at Casa Largo, but came away slightly disappointed. Drawn in by the “Tapas Bar & Restaurant” billing over the doorway, we were puzzled by the total absence of tapas from our lunch menu (later I saw it mentioned you needed to make a reservation two days in advance with an eight person minimum to see their tapas menu!). Regardless, the eatery occupies a prime space in downtown Helsinki and seems to capitalize on this position by catering to two crowds.

For the working stiffs, Casa Largo has a practical lunch menu featuring a nice selection of sandwiches and soups. I ordered one of each and found both quite tasteful at a reasonable price (for Helsinki). The seating area is also somewhat pedestrian, with plenty of outdoor choices available. On the flip side, there are several extensive wine racks and much more elegant dining areas within, which I think draws the upscale patron over dinner hours.

Did not see the dinner menu, but the clues suggest it is very nice. Our service was friendly and capable. Although it was not top shelf, this was lunch after all and I would be willing to bet the evening crew is a bit more polished. All in all, a pleasant experience beyond the frustration of entering for tapas and being denied.

As it could be seen from the photos, the place is very nice from outside and inside. The food looks nothing better than "tapas", but the service has nothing in common with the restaurants where real tapas are served.
