I found this place via tripadvisor and, as usual, it did not disappoint. YOU NEED A RESERVATION, if you expect to eat here. The food is buffet style, served in small pots like your grandma used and they have to know how many people to cook for. The staff will tell you all about the food and what goes with... More

It's super popular under tourist. Seems like everyone knows about Konstan Molja And it's a must do. No where else in Helsinki is it possible to get such good food for such a price. The buffet is extensive and this for a bargain of 20€ It's advisable to reserve before you get there. Monday's the restaurant is closed. Try to... More

This place is really wonderfull. You get a great buffet with typical Finnish plates. Amongst them is the best salmon I've ever had. Must-visit place!

Here you will walk back in time to a rustic village home where loads of delicious traditional foods are served. The owner/manager (?) walks around with a pack of cigarrettes in the shirt pocket and the atmosphere is relaxed. The food is heavy but tasty and it is easy to eat way too much.

This place is so adorable, and the food is really good. It's a nice place to try all the traditional Finnish foods. The interior of the restaurant is decorated like a cottage.

A Lavish Finnish Buffet in a little cozy place. You can find people from all over the world are here, enjoying their food. The place is little and well maintained by a couple. The food is great and portions are substantial. 19 euros for a dinner buffet is what I paid and a few more bucks for a cloudberry liqueur.... More

This is one of only few Finnish restaurants in Helsinki. Visited here with my family. There is no food made to order, only a buffet lunch/dinner, for a very reasonable price, considering Helsinki price level. There are starters (mostly seafood, salmon etc.), mains (reindeer, meatballs, chicken, fish, etc.), but no desserts. The food is OK, nothing special, suitable for locals... More

Booking.com has recommended it. It was better than I had expected. €19 for a typical Finnish buffet, which obviously included Herring, berries and reindeer meat, plus other delicious food. The owner (or chef) was extremely polite and friendly. Quick service and near my hotel (I stayed in Kamppi). Wanna go back.

We lived in Helsinki for 6 years and ever since discovered Konstan Molja we have been going to the restaurant every week without fail. The food is amazing and the atmosphere very warm and cozy. The owners are exceptional, with very high standards for food quality. We brought there all our friends that came to visit from Greece and Italy... More
