The restaurant setting makes this place very interesting. The restaurant is located in a former bank. The main eating area provides for high ceilings and overall a very elegant and classy experience. The bathrooms are located below in the former vaults. Service is professional, but not very warm or personal. Food is ok, but nothing memorable.

Salutorget is a gorgeous restaurant in an elegant old bank. The food was fresh and beautifully prepared and presented, the best I had in Helsinki. The service was professional and unhurried, but completely responsive to our needs. I was with a large group whose members had some dietary restrictions, and the restaurant adapted their menu or created special dishes without... More

This restaurant is located just down from the 'Cathedral' and at the harbour end of the 'Esplanadi Park'. It is uniquely housed in an old bank and as such the restaurant interior is rather grandiose with pillars and a stunning semi-circular stain glass window. The buildings 'banking' history from is also evident when you go downstairs to use the WC... More

One of the most memorable meals I've had the honor to eat! The beautiful restaurant, right next to the harbor and Market Square is home to one of the best for me restaurants in Helsinki. I had the pleasure to try "Salutorget’s Brioche with herb butter", fantastic "Angus sirloin steak with pilaf rice" and lovely "Crème Brûlée"...! Each dish is... More

Good standard of food, everything appeared fresh. Stunning interior and good value. Service was very friendly if a little slow. I recommend this location for light meals if you are not in a hurry.

This restaurang used to be a bank or money office. Looks like it. Very chic. Located opposite to the famous statue "Havis Amanda" next to the Market Place. Good food and frienly service. We went for a brunch on sunday. It was good. This is not for budget travellers. Brunch was 34 € per person.

Strolling down the Esplanade towards the harbour, you'll reach Salutorget restaurant. We went there for lunch on a nice sunny day in september. The restaurant has tables outside. At that time of the day (2 pm.) half the tables were reserved for afternoon tea. We had a cesar salade with wine and all sorts of finnish fresh bread. The salads... More

I saw the entrance and I simply desired to be there. Located in a townhall building if i am nit mistaken. The interiors... More

We had a good business lunch. We ate their "Husmanskost meny", a weekly menu with home made dishes. Today it was a whole fish with mashed potatoes and egg. The fish was good and tasty, not dry at all. The potato was all right. The dessert was a small cup of white chocolate ice-cream. I like ice-cream but not white... More
