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

This is along established old style restaurant serving a buffet of traditional Karelian Finnish food, home cooked by the owners. Wonderfull variety of dishes for dinner starting at 5pm and only 19 euros. This kind of cuisine is hard to find now in a world of pizzas and burgers ! The husband and wife team delight in meeting people and... More

I ate at Konstan Möljä with my family May 2014. We have read some excellent reviews about this restaurant on Tripadvisor and wanted to try it out. Unfortunately we were not as satisfied with the food, nor with the service. The food was not bad, definitely edible, but all in all the food experience was not something to remember. There... More

Situated in a non food area of Helsinki and offering a fixed price "Finnish feed". Great value but dont expect any green vegetables and expect lots of tourists.

I came for a weekend break ahead of a business trip and was looking for cheaper traditional restaurants - this is perfect. The hosts are traditionally dressed (assuming they are husband and wife) and the whole place is decked out like a cabin and dressed with hunting and fishing gear and old photos etc. The small buffet is the perfect...
