Great view and nice lunch buffet

This is a nice restaurant in Espoo, located in an old water tower. The view from the restaurant to the archipelago, Helsinki and Espoo is great! I was there on a rainy day, but even then it was impressive. The food is good and the buffet has a lot of choices. The waiters are very friendly and... read more

All the food is well done, wide selection and so delicious. Easy to have 6 to 9 course, but it is self service. Special coffee selection. Super view over Espoo and Helsinki sea side.

There are not so many restaurants in Espoo that are a must to visit. This is one. The buffet is a way over standard price range but still worth every cent. There is a wide variety of cold appetizers. Especially the fish table is excellent. After several rounds of seconds, there is not so much room for the main course.... More

Place with a great view over Espoo, Helsinki and the sea. Went there for a business lunch few days ago and felt it was really a suitable place to talk business. The place was nice and neat, the starters table was varied with both vegetables, fish and meat and the dessert table was also huge offering ice cream, different sort... More

I took my project team to Haikaranpesä for Project ending lunch. We enjoyed view to ocean and nice service. Starters ( Fishes especially) and desserts were very good but warm dish was just average fish and chicken. For the price (48€ / person excluding drinks) i expected little bit more for main course. I suggest to do reservation to ensure... More

Went in December for a Christmas buffet and was plesantly surprised. The views are spectacular and the food ok. The starter buffet was the best of them all. There were so many different options I couldn't try them all, but especially the sea food options were very good. The main was traditional Finnish Christmas food, nothing too fancy, but then...

The restaurant Haikaranpesä is located up in a water tower in Haukilahti, Espoo. The restaurant was renovated few years ago and it is worth visiting especially with the foreign visitors. The views over the Espoo and Helsinki are beautiful, especially during the summer period. The buffet lunch is relatively expensive.

The location is very nice as you're located next to the sea and you're 76 meters above the sea level - the view is fantastic! Starters are located in two separate lines: one for fish ans the second for meat. You can find totally some 50...60 different starters from which you choose the ones you like the most. Then a...
