Sävel is nice place at not-so-central Helsinki. They have good set of different beers and food is very good (delicious and big burgers). Best place to hang out with your friends and eat something.

Sävel have the best and originals burgers of Helsinki. A tradicional finnish restaurant that you can eat at day time a buffet for only 10e. The evenings at the weekends are happy and fun.

This is really a no frills restaurant but the food they serve is good and you will definitely not leave hungry. You will have to order your food at the disk but it will be served at you table.

This is a little way out of the centre of Helsinki buy worth the walk or team fare. Nice selection of draft and bottle beer. The burgers are superb - blue cheese jalapeño is recommended.
