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.

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.

Haikaranpesä is a place where you easily enjoy the food and eat too much in one time. That just happens so when wants to taste a little of everything. When... More

Haikaranpesä Restaurant made a lasting impression on me the first time I visited it years ago, and I was just blown away with the amazing views from this old water-tower over Espoo, Helsinki and the sea-side The food was also very tasty. I had a chance to go there again after it was renovated, and wasn't disappointed now either. The... More
