My foreign guest loved the view to the Esplanade park and the interior of the restaurant. Service was very professional and friendly. I had a green salad to start with. The portion was generous and fresh and the dressing very tasty. Both my guest and I had fish, which was fresh and excellently prepared. It came with risotto that was... More

I had a very good fresh green salad as a starter followed by white grilled fish. It was awesome! The interior is very cosy. The restaurant is very popular so even during the week you should make a reservation to make sure you will get a table. I was on my own so they let me sit at the bar.... More

Nice place for a drink, tea or meal. The wide windows of the restaurant offer a great view to the Esplanade. The food is really high quality at a reasonable price. Will for sure pay another visit next time I'm in Helsinki!

It is a cosy place. It had kept the historical decor and feeling. Good view of the main street The coffee is decent, but priced quite far above average. French press was around 5 euros.

Locals obviously love this restaurant so very busy on a Friday evening. Our reserved table position was perfect, and service excellent but unfortunately all ground to a very slow pace, waiting an hour for the Main courses. Waiter apologised and took a drink off the bill as a gesture

A local institution, and indeed a nice place. Had a light lunch, which was good. A tasty quiche and a fine coffee. Service was fine, and the prices are OK in Helsinki's term - which mean that in any non-Nordic capital you'll pay 30% less for a similar meal.

Although the location and setting of the restaurant upstairs are nice, the service was slow (three hours for a Saturday lunch is long by Finnish standards), and the food and wine were meh. We were a group of four and no-one was particularly impressed although we all ate different starters, mains, and desserts. For my part, the toast Skagen was... More

We had a very enjoyable, last meat here. We had salmon, which was excellent and meatballs which was tasty - great cold weather food. The surroundings are lovely, lots of old books, quaint corners, with good service. We would return
