Mediocre lunch

Had mediocre lunch at Salutorget. Starter ('blini') with caviar was really nice, but had to send main course back to kitchen because it was not hot enough. In the end the hamburger was also tasty, nothing special though. Service was ok. Restaurant has nice interior.

Restaurant Salutorget's bar is one of my favourite haunts in my native city Helsinki, so I decided to check out their famous Afternoon Tea for 22,70 €. Wasn't impressed. Arriving alone I clearly wasn't on the priority list of the staff and got a very bad seating in the desk-like additional tables facing the main dining hall & luke-varm service.... More

I have visited Salutorget many times over the years and it has never disapointed me. The interior is nice and the service is helpfull but sometimes little slow.

It is a kind of schizophrenic feeling to sit in a restaurant, the interiors of which imply you having landed in a true fine dining place - and then be serviced like in a backwoods cafeteria. I am not, by any means, one of those guys who wish to be serviced like an aristocrat - the service was simply an... More

Location location location , classic definement of success is here since Salutorget lies by the market sq and has a nice terrace in the summer. Interior is very nice art deco old bank and they still have the old vault door down stairs preserved. Food is is mixture of bistro / scandinavian classics and mostly very good - not the... More

Close to Market Square, this Bar/Restaurant combination is easy to reach. Very inspiring atmosphere and casual sofa furnitures makes the bar very inviting. Recommended :D

After shopping this was perfect rest for an afternoon tea in chilly December-Helsinki. For a price of 22.70 you got a nice sortiment of sandwiches and sweets with a warm pot of tea. I liked this experience a lot, tea was served until 6pm and the restaurant was not too crowded. Recommendations!

The restaurant Salutorget is situated right beside the very touristic Market Square. Food and service are ok, although quite highly priced. The old interior is beautiful; toilets downstairs are in an old bank vault. In the summertime you can sit at the tables outside and watch the lively surroundings of The Market Square.

"Salutorget" is Swedish for Farmer´s Market which is located across the street. Restaurant is located in a fabulous Art Nouveau place (a former city treasury). Despite it´s name it is an upper-scale place where cordial dress code is expected. Rare original art nouveau windows and original art nouveau lamp fixtures are worth seeing. Expensive.

We had the steak tartare and a lovely bottle of Latour, which was simply one of the best lunch experiences, I've ever had. The setting in the old bank is amazing, and the staff were professional and friendly. Definitely the best place we visited in Helsinki (we ended up going twice).
