Just when I wrote my last review with title “Great food, great service & great value of money” month ago, we visited here again few weeks ago.

This place is really old and they have made huge face lift after many years. There is good selection of different foods and they have many beer in selection. Portions are little bit small but prices are ok.

The lunch was OK, but nothing to write home about. Service was friendly, but food arrived surprisingly slow.

Very traditional Finnish home-made -like food. Truly adequate amount of lunch: salad, meat soup and mutton with cabbage/rice.

I was a bit confused, because the bartender quite straight order us to leave the bar in next five minutes. There was a pretty range of different good whiskies and biers.

You don't want to wear your sexiest cocktail dress here, it's not that sort of a fancy place, but someone recommended it to me and told me it's the oldest restaurant in Helsinki - so I gave it a go (though I rarely like pub food and am sceptical). But this definitely was a nice surprise! Very nice food for... More
