Rocked up here on the off chance as it was a short walk from my hotel and was made to feel as if my custom was really valued. The young lady serving spent time explaining local dishes and with her advice I settled on a plate of freshly caught flounder on a bed of crispy vegetables with a mild horseradish... More

Merimakasiini has a remarkable menu. Unfortunately the quality does not fulfill ones expectations. We had the a la carte with sea food. The appetazier of mussels, smoked and the usual cooked in white wine were ok, but not thrilling. The main course was lobster. Again ok, but not delicious. The desserts were very good. Service was friendly and the wine... More

I appreciated eating seafood with a harbour view and discovered that rainbow trout is a truly delicious fish. The service was also sufficient. Everything else about the meal was subpar and overpriced (even relative to Helsinki) - the vegetables were undercooked, the sauce bland, there somehow managed to be no aroma to anything, and the restaurant generally felt a little...

My wife and me went to Merimakasiini on a friend's recommendation. Fortunately we had a very nice sunny September evening. We ate 2 seafood appetizers, which were of really nice quality. Main course were mussels pot - very good, but bread or fries would have made it perfect - and a big bowl of fish soup - which was called... More

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
