Had the lunch buffet. The food is very good with a nice selection of typical Finnish fare. The fish is really excellent. The desserts were yummy too. The views from the tower are amazing. We had a wonderful time.

Been there with colleagues. Very good food buffet, especially fish. I rarely eat fish, but there it was the best. Sea view also helps. The place is a bit pricey, but it's all you can eat, so you'll definitely be full. Only downside is that they are not open in the evening, except for special events. Seeing the sundown from... More

I only visited this place for the Christmas buffet which was excellent. The view is nice and it has a nice calm atmosphere. The Christmas buffet includes a wide variety of local specialities, fish, meats and a large buffet table. Its a little pricey but its worth it.

The restaurant is well known of its lunch buffet where you can choose of many different kind of cold plates (fish, meat etc.) and those have also been my favorites.

I had a chance to go there again after it was renovated, and wasn't disappointed now either. The... More

Restaurant is renewed and it shows. Very modern looking. Food was good as always but lunch wasn't that special. If I ever want to spend that much my own money for lunch, I probably go somewhere else. But the view is fantastic, my foreign guests were quite excited to see surroundings at one glance.

I had lunch at Haikaranpesä and I have to say that food was average but really expensive. Place is unique because of it`s views, in a bright day you can see to Estonia.
