If you are a looking for a tasty lunch in center Helsinki, this is the place to go. Place has a delicious salad buffet, which you can take as your only dish, or, my advice, select from one of the 4 options of the day which also include the salad buffet. Place is not open for dinner

Delicious lunch time meal. I would visit on a more regular basis if they had more seats. Now it's full quite often so not always worth the extra walk for us.

Tiny lunch place, about 20 seats, but specially good food. No reservations possible. Open only at lunch time and 3-4 main dishes available. It is worth of waiting for free seats. Atmosphere relaxing. Best is food and worst is not enough seats.

Tiny place in city center. The best? Their buffet, with lots of options all of them vegetarian and I would even say vegan. The environment is quite somehow different from other restaurants in town, the walls are full of old black and white pictures all from France. The food though is international style.

Visited this restaurant on 19th August and was very impressed. Like others have said the place is quite small but that does add to the comfort. Our party of two adults and two children thoroughly enjoyed the main courses and salad bar. Excellent service and would definitely recommend.

This is one of my favorite casual lunch restaurants in HelsinkI. The menu changes daily and you can chose from about five different dishes, they always have a lasagna and falafels. They have a good salad table that's included in the price, around 10€. The place is minuscule, caters for around 20 at a time. The tables are very close... More

Trocadero is a small bistro in Punavuori and one of my favorite lunch spots. It's cosy, busy and the food is consistently excellent. If you're coming for lunch, be prepared to wait a bit for a table because this is a truly popular place with the people working nearby. The menu changes per day, but vegetarians are always well catered... More

At lunch, on a weekday. A small place, approximately 20 seats. Popular, so you might have to wait for a table, at least during the rush hour ( about twelve o´clock). Quite good salad table, warm dishes from the coal board on the wall, changing daily I suppose. Orders & payment are made right away, then to the table. You... More

I shouldn't be writing this cause it might just cause the already limited space in Trocadero to get even fuller of expats and locals when I'll try and find a spot to sit down to enjoy some amazing Mediterranean dishes here. Trocadero's chef is an amazing friendly man who often comes out to greet his customers and knows how to... More

Very nice and small place, a romantic corner in helsinki where you can help yourself at the starters table (salad, cous cous, cereals, beans, olives) while you are waiting for your main dish coming out from the kitchen. With less than 10 euros you will have a great lunch
