The environment is industrial, very hip and cool. Terrace is nice and sunny. But it's impossible to mention more good things about Kellohalli because there isn't any. The food is quite expensive compared to the quality and size of the portions. I had Club sandwich with cottage cheese (18 euros). The food was cold, the toast was burnt and tasted... More

We went there to have dinner. First of all the interior and actually the whole feeling of the place is special - we really loved it, it has a nice vibe. The service was very friendly and obliging - nothing to complain about. About the food - we had Jallu marinated salted beef, Beetroot pudding and the spicy lamb sausage... More

Went here for lunch. I took a bouillabaisse that took the kitchen forever to prepare. The other had food from the buffé. The bouillabaisse was average but the rest of the group seemed happy with the choices from the buffé

Kellohalli is located in an old slaughterhouse ("Teurastamo") that currently houses a lot of activity that has to do with local food, organic food etc. I dined here late at night with a group of friends. It was very easy to get vegan food: the waitress took care to insure that I would get a proper meal and even brought... More

Me and my 3 colleagues had a early dinner close to our office. Former slaughter house, a lot of room. I liked the concept of selecting the dishes for the table to share. Most of the dishes were from finnish cuisine. We had several different dishes to share. Some portions were larger than other. Some were so small that we... More

I like a lot this place: former slaughter, it kept the rough industrial spirit, but the food is far from being rough and industrial. I've been only for the weekend's brunch, and I have never been disappointed. You can choose from different starters, mains and side dishes and the price around 20 € is definitely in line with Helsinki scene,... More

Kellohalli was something totally new to me. My old faithful friend took me there in the intention of having a casual dinner and just chat in private. The very open premises are perhaps not ideal for talking in private, but the general atmosphere, especially in summer time I should think, is very nice. The very simple furniture and plain "industrial"... More

I visited Kellohalli on April 10th 2013 for a long dinner with culinary fiend friends of mine. I have been a regular to the owner's Antto Melasniemi's debutant venue Kuurna since the week it opened in 2006. Also the Töölö-based a bit fancier Finne has always delivered. That is why our fiasco trip to the outskirts of the city came... More

A little out of the city, but worth the effort to get there. The food was exceptional and reasonably priced by Helsinki standards. The setting is informal and that is half the charm. Worth reserving a table, although they do have plenty of space.

Kellohalli is located in Tukkutori Sörnäinen in old slaughterhouse. I only have been there for lunch but it is also open in the evenings. Every time the lunch has been exceptional (price usually is 9,5€). It included buffet salad and fresh (homebaked?) bread, make-to-order meal and coffee. Waiters come and ask if there was enough food and you can have... More
