It was little bit disappointment to go to Base for dinner. Place itself is nice, service is good, but the food is bland. It was not bad but wasn't good either. Price itself was too big for that food. I ate avocado chicken pasta. There were no taste at all and chicken was dry. It cost 19€ (if I remember... More

It's always a bit of a disappointment when you realize you could have done better than the chef. Don't get me wrong the food is not bad, it was just a little bland. We opted for the Bistro section of the menu including pasta with chicken and avocados and a some grilled chorizo on potato salad. The pasta was a... More

Base is my favourite restaurant when having lunch in Sello shopping center. Just pay and eat without any hassle. There use to be enough different kind of food and service is very fluent. In summertime You can have lunch outside on the terrace.

I ate in the bar area, which has seating for 2-3 dozen people. Not a great place, but the staff will accommodate special requests, so I do recommend it (if you are not willing to take the 18 minute train ride into Helsinki for 5EU. Went here 3 nights in a row, as was staying at Hotel Glo. Had white... More

I had an asparagus pasta with a white wine sauce and chicken. The sauce tasted like salty water with pepper. The service was amateurlike and rude especially from the main person in the restaurant. I would recommend people staying in the hotel next door to try another place.

We had a good meal, and it gets quite packed near Midsummer, even tho most locals are at their summer cabins. Food was tasty, but as in all things Finnish, a little expensive for an American

With a sit-down restaurant area, an informal bar with food service, and an outdoor summer terrace, there is a good chance that this place will offer something for most tastes. The food is of a good standard, although a little on the expensive side. The evening restaurant menu is decent. On the bar side, there is sometimes a weekday buffet... More

Base is located in a shopping mall, but it is far away from a fast-food kind of place. They serve really delicious food (international kitchen) and fantastic wines (they have a wine club in there as well). They are open for lunch from 10:30-15:00 and on working days starting from 16:00 You can order from the menu. Definitely a place... More
