Food was good , very limited choice for vegetarians .But staff was very helpful they tried their best to give us more options which were not on the menu originally . Ambience- very romantic nice and calm , lovely music and live fire in fireplace added very soothing effect.

We had a family dinner before going to the ballet. The food was not memorable, no flavours, nothing special not even warm for the whole family of 6. The staff was not according the image of the restaurant and the hotel it represents. A LOT needs to improve that I would go back.

I would not recommend to go there to eat. It is ordinary food with high price. Food was ok, but didn't make us to think it was something good. Waste of money, I think! Helsinki has lot more better restaurants with same price! Desserts were good. You may go to eat those!

Not a high rated restaurant but convenient and a good value. The restaurant is open till 0:00. The blue cheese burger is great. I recommend also their Finnish beer.

Macu is a fine place to dine if you do not want to leave the hotel and travel very far in Helsinki. It is slightly expensive but the food is good. No special scenery other than a normal hotel setting.

This restaurant at the Crowne Plaza Hotel has a very good breakfast buffet. The menu might be a bit conventional, but the service is awesome. Apart from the regular choice from the buffet table, one can also go for the various cooked egg and waffle options which are a welcome addition to the menu.

Macu is the restaurant at Crowne Plaza Hotel. The food was not at all exciting. A small serving of asparagus soup was 9.80 Euros and was lukewarm and barely more than a saucer full. The burger was overcooked and the salad option consisted of a bowl of lettuce in a marinade.

We decided to have dinner in this hotel restaurant only because we arrived very late on a public holiday and there were no restaurants open in the area. But it turned out to be a good decision. They had a limited menu, but the food was prepared very quickly and served quickly. The food was tasty and the portions were... More

This restaurant was within my hotel so I naturally had to try it once. The meal was cooked in a reasonable amount of time and it was certainly tasty. They offer good assortments of beverages from alcoholic to non alcoholic. If you're in the neighbourhood, I would certainly suggest trying it out.
