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

A great place to be and to eat. The waiters are always helpful and friendly, they accept special wishes without any objection and they serve the food for four persons at the same time without any delay. That alone doesn't make the restaurant so outstanding. The big difference between this and others in Helsinki is that it is a truly... More

This nice restaurant isn't far from the Senate Square (not even a 10min walk) but it's a bit more hidden than other restaurants so probably not so crowded with tourists. You have around 6 traditional Finnish dishes to choose from, besides quite a few others in the menu. The portions are big, you won't leave hungry! We had the salmon... More

We wanted a Finnish restaurant and most diners were indeed Finns. We were served by Petra who looked after us excellently throughout including discussing wine options to accompany the reindeer tenderloin. We would fully agree with others' comments on the tenderness and quality of the meat. It was a lively "pub atmosphere" which we thoroughly enjoyed on a Friday night.

This restaurant might not appeal at first sight because the decoration its not that stylish, but you feel good as soon as the service starts! We had as main dish the reindeer tenderloin steak with vegetables and I just can say: it was a dream! The service was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was casual and relaxed. The portions...

We asked for a Finnish restaurant, and was recommended by the hotel. The reindeer tenderloin was a bit pricey, but amazing.
