I have visited couple times this nice seafood restaurant. It has always served very good meals. This time was no exception. Especially main course: grilled whitefish with roasted carrots was one of top dinners during this year. Place is kind of fine dining, but service is casual, in a appropriate way.

Best fish in Helsinki! You can find fish in every corner in this city, but here is just over the top. We went fir a fix menu of 5 different plates, and could not have been better. We even got an extra plate from the chef and it was just awsome. To finish the wine webhad a selection of cheese... More

Go for the whole smoked fish and seriously avoid the tasting menu, which is poor. Service fabulous. Chef needs some help on the flavour front though.

Fish market was recommended for me. I found the food to be superb and the ambience is truly classy. On the other hand it was an excessively pricy restaurant.

My husband and I enjoyed delicious fish (cod) and chips at this great restaurant. Excellent service, beautiful fresh produce and a lovely crisp Riesling to go with our selection of main course. A reasonably priced menu and modern decor added to the overall great impression on this restaurant.

The name didn't deliver, if you didn't go for the Japanese fixed menu then the alternative was a very limited a la carte choice. We had the mussels which were pretty dreadful produced in tasteless grey coloured sauce, they really were appalling and the chefs should be embarrassed sending them out, serviced with a pile of thin cut what seemed...

On the main Esplanade street however not at street level but basement. As a starter the seafood platter small size to share with 2 people is a must. Main course fishes all very fresh, lobster cooked to perfection..vegetables that come with it too much..service was slow and understaffed that evening.

One of the best meals we had in Scandinavia. The fish is very fresh and well prepared, and there were interesting delicious specials. It's beautiful inside, and the wait staff was very helpful. It was tricky to find, though--it's downstairs, not at street level. Definitely worth a visit.
