I really love their Saturday brunches. Its not exactly inexpensive, but the selection is superb! I usually eat so much that I have problems staying awake afterwards. Desserts are mostly not vegan, but I prefer the healthier saltier foods anyway. I usually don't drink here, so can't say that much about the drink side. Remember to reserve a table!

Went to the Eira-branch last night for the 1st time. Fairly priced for a place with such good food and atmosphere. After our experience last night, Sandro is now officially on our list to be one of our fave restaurants in Helsinki. I absolutely recommend!

Sandro is still ok but compared to last year quality has started to decline. I had same meal last year and it was much better then. If some of your group has allergies, this place should be avoided. Bar has very limited offerings in ciders and rum tastes really bad.

I do recommend Sandro. Oh why? Because food is fresh, tastes great and service is super too. The lunch is great and you should try the weekend brunch on Saturday and Sunday

Dinner for 4 people, including somebody who knows the place very well: mindblowing. Ordered the Marrakech Feast (min. 2 people) plus other vegetarian options, resulting in tons of genuine, homemade-quality, stunning food stemming from North-African and Middle-East traditions. The lamb was almost legendary. It's always so busy because it's so good and it's in Kallio: booking is necessary, especially for... More

The meals are good, portion size mostly huge and staff is (almost always) friendly. On busy hours you are better off with a reservation. Go witht he lamb

We visited this place for lunch. The food is good, but it is served on chipped porslain which I don't like. The coffee was also served in paper cups. Since I have nut allergy, I don't think I dare visiting this place again. The staff ascertained me that there were no nuts in the food, but then I noticed many... More

Sandro has grown to become my favourite restaurant in Helsinki. Located in the trendy Kallio area, the service and atmosphere is perfectly laid-back and the food is marvellous. I strongly recommend the cocktails! It is fairly hard to get a table, so be sure to book one early on through their website. The food has a lot of wonderful moroccan... More
