Ate here on our first night of a long weekend in Helsinki. The restaurant isn't that easy to find as the signage is not very obvious - we walked past it twice before spotting the sign. I am glad we had booked as the place got very full. Mixture of young Finnish people enjoying beers and lots of tourists soaking... More

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel. It had both traditional Finnish food and other items. It was very good. Good service, and the meals were all delicious and hearty! A colleague and I had the reindeer stew with mashed potatoes and ligonberries. It was a little salty, but quite good. Other guests had veal sausage, salmon, or the beef.... More

_Location_ The Kolme Kruunua is located a few steps away from the main attractions but it's well worth the (short) walk. _Food_ I had reindeer filet (29€) and it was tender and perfectly cooked. It was accompanied by veggies and a sweet-salty sauce that is typical for the nordic cuisine. My colleagues' mais all looked nice as well, and my... More

We were staying nearby and wanted to try some Finnish food and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is a bar/restaurant and on this particular night was full of locals, which is always a good sign. The food is not Michelin quality but rather a "home style" quality, which is exactly what we wanted. The servings were delicious and very... More

This is a nice place if you want to see and taste some traditional Finnish (and other) food from the 1950's to 1990's. Place is usually a bit crowded so a reservation is recommended but if you are a small group of 2 or 3 person you might have luck just walking in and asking. We taste "pyttipannu" and some... More

I first visited Kolme kruunua back in 1982 with my girlfriend; we were young, short of money, cold and hungry. Yet we were treated as human beings; the onion soup (sadly missing in today´s menu!) was excellent, and the atmosphere was - and is luckily today - great. No gimmicks, no luxury, but still somehow dignified and "neighbourhoodly" at the... More

We had checked in at 7.30pm at the Hilton Strand and knew that this, one of the oldest restaurants in Helsinki was not far away. From the rear of the Hilton turn left across the bridge, keep straight and take the first left which joins Liisankatu and the restaurant is at the bottom. Inside it is a lovely site of... More

This restaurant 'The three Crowns' is a little walk out of town (go via the Esplanade, NOT up the hill as we did!) This place was recommended by some Finnish people on the bus from the airport and they kindly marked it on the map for us. It was worth it. An old restaurant, spotlessly clean, and even on a... More

Loved the decor, thought the service was wonderfully friendly, great location between the city centre and the Hilton Strand. My friends had the schnitzel and the fried herrings and were happy. I chose poorly with the sautéed reindeer; it wasn't a stew or a chunk of meat, but chewy meat shavings in a well of mash potato, with only some... More
