I have frequented this place with colleagues for lunch several times, and always an easy and surefire option. It serves as our BASE option when deciding if some other place of many in the area would be an option.

This restaurant is located within Sello Mall and it has a bar and a sit down restaurant area. This review is for the restaurant (haven't visited the bar). Been here few times and I can say that the food is relatively good. Not great but good. However it is priced way too high especially when the service is not on... More

This is a nice place to have dinner with friends. The service has always been very friendly. Someone already mentioned that prices are not so friendly, I fully agree with that. The food has always been good, or at least ok, but also a bit too expensive compared to the quality. Nevertheless, I like the cosyness of this place. I'm... More

One part of this restaurant is self service for ordering your food and drinks and you pay at once and the other part is serviced you make the decision. Food was ok and prices are okish. 15 €r a Ceasar sallad and about 4.50€ for a beer. Got food quickly and the restaurant is nice designed

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

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.
