A nice Finnish to our day

This is not far from the open market area and has both inside and outside dining. There are some great local dishes as well as the usual suspects from around the world. Well priced

Visited the restaurant mainly for the oysters. One of the only restaurants serving a good choice of oysters and champagne. The fish roe and natural prawns were good. Nice white interiors and clean restaurant.

I had the 3-course chef's choice menu and each and every course was delicious, beautifully plated, and served with polish. Don't let the basement location reduce your expectations. It's a very modern restaurant with bright walls and modern decorations. I wish I could remember the details, but I started this review weeks ago, right after eating there, but wasn't able... More

my partner and I shared a meal in this restaurant recently. The lobster (€ 59) was well cooked but poorly presented. The vegetables, undercooked including one asparagus of which only the head could be eaten were at the bottom of a dish containing the lobster and some roasted potatoes placed for some reasons on a sheet of newspaper. The sea... More

Recommended by our hotel the restaurant did not disappoint. Food was good although my wife and I regretted starting with the sharing seafood platter as soon as we saw the Lobster served to the guy on the table next to us. Service was good, wine a little pricey although we did have 2 bottles. Not a fine dining experience but... More

Excellent crabs and lobsters. Oysters and fish in general. Like fresh seafood? This is the place. You can order half king crab or oysters for appetizer and go on with either mussels or lobster. Very good.

Lobster was a bit of a dissapointment for me even though it was good. Next door restaurant's (Salutorget) lobster wins 10 - 7. Desert (white chockolate with berries) was very good. I have to say that... More

Cosy restaurant, friendly waiter, the seafood platter (€49) very nice with a great variety of mussels and shrimps and tasty dips. The grilled seabass average, the oysters fine, but not exceptional. The coffee excellent. The bill sky high. We liked the place, but it's too pricy.
