Blast from the past, for real

Imagine if you will a restaurant from the mid 80-ties, before the economy went down the drain. Now imagine no one has done any redecorating whatsoever to it, they haven't even redone their menus, they just ripped out the pages with the items they no longer serve.

Since this place has gotten so much media attention over the years, and it's steaks keep attracting the locals back over and over for decades, my wife took me here on an antropological excursion to study the local feeding habits of our neighbouring township of Espoo. We must admit, we were amazed. Not so much by the very plain 70's... More

Coming here for 40 years, on occasion. Steaks are still good and I recommend the place, but price starting to be a bit on the high side in relation to the area availale in 15 min. by car. With same price or cheaper you get much nicer athmosphere or even tastier food.

The place is still just like in seventies, when I was a child. And as a finn I like that I can go to restaurant wearing even sportsgear. The steaks are the best ever, and now Im counting Finland and rest of the world ;) My favorit is "Mirabeau ".

It's like the restaurants in my childhood - dated interior, just a bar counter and tables. Nothing too fancy, just a genuine pub-style restaurant in a good way. Menu is mostly steaks and schnitzels. Served with amazing fries with a lot of seasoning, and very little vegetables. Taste is great, portions large and the prices very reasonable. Probably the best... More

This place has been forever at the same place and the menu has also been the same forever -> provides big portions of not so healthy but tasty food. Normally very popular place during lunch time.

Good steaks. The interior is straight from 70's when the restaurant was opened. And if you are vegetable lover please stay away as this restaurant serves big steaks.

Way overpriced, almost 30euros for a steak, pile of fries and a tasteless salad made of chinese cabbage, canned pineapple and cucumber. Not worth going, although the steak was decent.

I come here every time I'm in the neighborhood not because of the service because there isn't any, not because of atmosphere, because it's simple but because theretgp no sauce Choron like theirs anywhere!!! Have a filet steak with Choron sauce and you will be satisfied! Or I eat my hat.
