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...

the buffet style food concentrates on fish and is really good. There is everything else as well, but especially the fish sortiment is good. It is a bit expensive though and so is wine, too. The only bad thing is that you eat toooooo much there!

The lunch buffet is far higher quality than in many first class restaurants. Selected dishes, fish, meat and vegetable, all delicious. If the weather is good and you have window table you can just sit and enjoy between dishes.

Buffet lunch on top of old water tower. I have always concentrated more to wide selection of starters which play the main role of the whole buffet. Main courses are usually not that special. Also a quite a good selection of deserts for those that have a sweet tooth. Beautiful 360 degree views and nice interior make this place special.... More

Had a work lunch - Xmas buffet etc - not bad - good selection - but nothing to write home about, and a nice hefty bill at the end.Best thing is the view etc - so nice to have a group lunch.
