Wide assortment of food - buffet-type-of eating

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... read more

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.

The restaurant seems to think that quantity legitimates poor quality. The over-priced buffet consists of numerous fish and meat starters, which all look and taste more or less dull or processed. Industrially produced Norwegian salmon in five different ways, herring in all sorts of marinades. Main courses (fish and pork) standing on heaters look and taste even sadder. Nothing fresh... More

The great food combined with the view over Espoo makes this one of the best restaurants in Espoo. Very good for business meetings, due to the peaceful atmosphere.

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.
