This place used to be one of the most legendary restaurants in Finland. It is incredibly sad to see where the quality has plummeted. There is lot to improve in the quality of the ingredients/cooking skills and in the service.

We went there with our 2 year old sin, and it was a nice place to bring children. Good food, and a service with a smile.

I was here on saturday afternoon around 4 pm and although it wasn't crowded there were several customers and the atmosphere was lively. There are large windows to the parking lot by the street and to the quayside so it was quite bright. For starters I had Cellar Salmon and King Prawns au Gratin and for the main course I... More

Nice place by the harbour. Food is good. Service was polite. Main courses are between 20-30€. Place is suitable for adult dinner and business lunches. They also have russian style blinis.

I can't say anything bad about the food and service. It's okay. But this restaurant is very special, there is no policy about the safety of customers, no video cameras! Just now, maybe 30 min ago we were there with the whole family, and one stranger stole all money in our wallet...even waitresses didn't ask the stranger what does he... More

We were staying at radisson blu seaside and were recommended this restaurant by the hotel. Great choice. The menu had a good selection for us and our two boys aged four and six chose kids meals which came with a ice cream. For the price the meals were a very generous size. My husbands garlic prawns came unpeeled which is... More

Very nice atmosphere, super tasty food and wine. Great traditional fish soup, take a large portion right away! Mussels in white wine with garlic sauce - beautiful! Dinner for two -not less then 100 euro with wine. If you have a dog stuff could place you on the open terrace and bring bowl of water for your dog.

We got a late booking on a Friday evening with a window seat overlooking the active harbour. Food was seafood orientated and very good quality. Wine was also pretty reasonable for Helsinki. Good and attentive service. The only downside is its a bit dark with apparantly limited lighting. We left before it got dark but it could be a bit... More

This used to be one of my favorite seafood restaurants but the standard has declined a bit I´m afraid. On my last visit I ordered the pike-perch with season vegetables. The fish was overdone and rather tasteless. This is after all a seafood restaurant so you would expect to get the fish properly done. On previous occasions I remember that... More
