Excellent fish resturant

A very nice and warm atmosphere with a Marin theme. Food was very good and service was excellent. I can really recommend this place.

It's one of it's kind restaurant. I like it's premium location and authentic menu. The place can be crowded in the evening, so advance booking is necessary. Try the salmon steak and soups. They have friendly staffs who speak English well.

Had lunch with some collegues at this restaurant. Terrific choice. There was a choice of having soup of the day and sallad buffé. The soup was delicious (Minestrone) and the sallad buffe was great, it included shrimps, chicken, vegetables etc. Great lunch !!

As the restaurant was only a short walk away from the Radisson Seaside, we quickly adopted it as our local during the few days we were here. The food was consistently good and the staff were friendly and attentiver - when I queried the temperature of my razor clam starter (delicious, by the way), our server quickly checked with the...

The end of Summer,all too short in Finland. I had a great meal, sitting outside looking at the water. Starter of Salad of Smoked Salmon, Salmon Roe, Anchovies and lettuce and tomatoes, I really enjoyed it. Main course of Swedish Pike-Perch (sometimes named as Zander) with Potato Hash, air dried ham and land and sea asparagus. A bit over-complicated but... More

A little high prices... but quality of the food is fine...Though could be less greedy.. Their intention should be to satisfy clients,not just to get money and send them away.....

As a gluten- and lactose-intolerant person who also does not like to eat red meat, Merimakasiini suits me very well! They have many gluten-free and lactose-free options and a variety of seafood. (They also have red meat and chicken on the menu). Two of us had clams and two of us had hamburgers, we were all happy with the food.... More

When we arrived, the servers came to us immediately. We were lucky to have one of the funnier servers so she kept us laughing. The menu is quite varied, with mixture of mainly seafood dishes, but meat and more was served here. We all took the seafood soup, I don't know the right name for it... But anyway, it was... More

I had a big portion of bouillabaisse fish soup. It was good. Place is nice near the seaside. If the weather is good you could take a walk from the city thru Bulevardi (near Stockmann). Take about 15 min. to go the end and then you can see the restaurant after market square.
