A unique experience, though not one I feel a great need to repeat. Everything felt very traditional and quaint and it is a lovely venue. The buffet itself is a set of pots on a table, almost as if you were simply guests in their house. The food was quite nice, if somewhat homogeneous, and let me tick "Reindeer" of... More

Konstan Molja is located a few tram stops from the center of Helsinki. Helsinki is an exprensive city, and there are not many restaurants in this range (20 Euro). The problem I find with Konstan is that it doesn't serve memorable food; one can get fresher food for half the price at the harbor stalls, or pay more and get... More

Konstan Molja provides a selection of traditional Finnish foods in buffet form, so you can try whatever takes your fancy, and go back for more if you like it - which you will. The food on offer isn't the more haute cuisine version of Finnish food that you can find in more modern restaurants around Helsinki and elsewhere (which is... More

Lately, I have been in Konstan Molja with my family. I must say, this restaurant has the best Finnish atmosphere out of any restaurants in Helsinki. Its cozy rooms filled with many pictures, paintings, artifacts and maps of regions significant to Finland attract an eye of a traveler. Of course, most of all personally, when I came inside Konstan Molja... More

This is the second time I visit the restaurant. Still my favorite in Helsinki. The food was very nice, excellent salmon. The owners were very warm, welcomely. It is a surprise when somebody says they have 40 euros for a bottle of wine, I cant find anything more than 29 euros. You should book a table or you might end... More

We had a wonderful meal at Konstan Molja. The workers were so nice and friendly. The restaurant was so beautiful and rustically quaint. Service was excellent !!! We had the special reindeer meet, lamb meat, organic chicken, fresh salmon and tomato meat ball. We were too full to have a dessert. With appetizers, entrees, and a glass of wine for... More
