Restaurants in hotels are usually a letdown, but not Fokka. Staff are really attentive and friendly. Needed a quick bite and had the carbonara, which was really tasty and the serving was just perfect for me. Will definitely eat here again.

The food is not bad (except the mushroom soup which was awful), but the portions are ridiculously small and it's very expensive. The pike/perch with horseradish butter was delicious but much too small. If you don't have two or three courses you leave hungry. Worst of all is the very hit and miss service and the fact that you can... More

I had the reindeer entree and steak for main and was very happy with both. The bread is complimentary and also quite delicious. Serving staff are not so attentive and more focused on clearing away dishes on tables where people have left but they are friendly and helpful when you get their attention.

The menu has the basics for Finland. Salmon and mushroom soup, reindeer, lamb burger. One glaring gap is the lack of pure rye bread, rye happankorppu or nakkileipa. Really? Fix this.

Cool place by the water. Great for drinks and meeting with friends. The restaurant sits by a canal and is very relaxed.

Good burger, prices are reasonable. House Salad was fresh and presented very nicely. Cold beer and full bar is available. Server is attentive but not overbearing.

I was staying at the Holiday Inn West and this restaurant was very convenient for a business lunch with a client. The fish of the day was excellent. Presentation and service was very good.

Restaurant is located at the Holiday Inn Ruoholahti hotel, so basically everybody eating is also staying at the hotel. Food was ok, we had a burger and pasta, but the service was (at that particular night) a bit unfriendly and hasty. We did arrive at 22.10 having been told that the restaurant would be open until 23.00. The waitress just... More
