Belge is a great place to take a break of shopping or city walk. I had mixed feelings; sometimes during day time it is extremely difficult to get service, especially in second floor. But in evening service is great even there is much more people. Anyway, try your luck and go to see this nice belgium style bar. Second floow... More

I have been eating here few times before. Belge is categorized a quality restaurant and that's how my expectations are set. This time I went there a bit between lunch and dinner hours, and resaurant was almost empty. Anyway, service was really slow and therefore I skipped dessert I had planned to have. Positive was that I was received about... More

For a lunch the service was fine but the quality was average, nothing special. There was the "standard" and basic salad buffet and we choose mussels with white wine sauce. I have eaten better for similar price.

We visited this Belgian themed bar/bistro on a Sunday evening and it was relatively quite. it is located in the centre of Helsinki and was conveniently close to our hotel. We ate in the downstairs bar, I thought the prices were reasonable for a central location in an expensive capital city. You're not in Kansas any more! We both had... More

If you are staying downtown and do not want to have a drink at the hotel, you can try this Bistro cum bar. The mussels and french fries are delicious.

This restaurant was way overpriced. Fish and Chips was $22.20 USD. Ridiculous. Each small 8oz Coke was $5.50 USD. This was the most expensive meal we had during our entire two week trip. NOT WORTH IT.

We ordered bread as a starter followed by fillet steak. The adjacent two tables were occupied after our arrival but received their meals at least 15 minutes before us. Our starter (bread) was then served with our mains but without a separate bread plate. We were told that steak takes a long time to cook - probably why mine was... More

Fish and Chips were €20 and came with 3 fish goujons that were mostly batter and frozen oven chips rather than Belgian frites. That about sums it up. Plenty of good beer options but there are cheaper places in Helsinki to get good beer. Staff were nice.
