It's all about the views!

Had a really great lunch in this very special location. The view from the top of the tower over the islands and the sea is marvellous. The lunch buffet was of high quality, offering all the delicacies Finland has to offer, very nice seafood!

An extraordinary restaurant at the top of water tower in the coastal area in Espoo. The food served is eatable, but the sceneries are the best part of the experience. You are able to see whole Espoo area and even longer. This is a restaurant you have to experience!

Booked a table for grandpa's birthday. Only one menu (buffet) available. The food was average and the service was really bad, we were almost totally neglected. Staff went eating themselves in another table, which tells a lot about this restaurants attitude.

Christmas buffet was really good, especially fish starters and deserts. I'm not a big fan of christmas food, so I skipped mains. View was really nice. Service was nice and quick. Price was little bit high.

We were two having the xmas buffet during the lunch time. Like in most buffets the starters and deserts were good, and the warm meal okey. But certainly xmas starters with variety of fish would alone be enough to visit this place. Cost for the lunch is however at the upper end.

Old water tower now used for reastaurant. Fancy view to city of Espoo and Helsinki and Baltic Sea. For lunch having buffet was excellent idea since as a starters range of fish was enough for whole lunc, baltic herring in different sauces, perch, whitefish etc .

I have been 3 times in Haikaranpesä for lunch. First 2 times were business lunches, last time as Sunday lunch with friends. It was a nice clear day so the views were amazing! The service was also good. About food: the cold buffet was great and tasty! Different fishes, which I really loved and also different meats. However no shrimps... More

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 service minded.

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.
