The concept of the restaurant is good, first a street bar, more peaceful bar one floor up and the bistro on the same floor. But if you are not interested in mussels, you'd better go somewhere else. The portions are small and overpriced. The tables...More

A good restaurant in middle of Helsinki City Centrum. Located at a smaller shoping center (Kluuvi), so it will be not the most rush places, still in the heart of city. From street level (Aleksanterinkatu) inside there is a bar & pub and upstairs in...More

Had a very nice beer and at the suggestion of the barmaid tried the club sandwich which was delicious. Would have like a slightly wider selection of Belgian beer on tap, but you can't have everything. Great spot for a casual drink
