Good big Sallad

Nice plece in the corner ov Albertin and Kalevankatu. A mixture of Greece and a little of Finland. We ate a chicken salad. It was quite large and tasted good. For dessert, a large cup of good coffee. Good service and clean.

This place is now VERY disappointing. Sandwiches have become MUCH smaller, lesser amount of fillings, -- and even worse service which was not their forté even before but it could be put up with.

We came here for lunch in our visit to Helsinki based on tripadvisor comments. We ordered one sandwich and one salad and honestly, they were average (maybe on the low range) and very expensive. We know everything is expensive in Helsinki, but still we found it very poor. Do not recommend this place.

This place has a very honest, real look and feel. The atmosphere is Mediterranean and the owner is Greek. There are many great choices of sandwiches and specials each day. The cappuccino and expresso offering is one of the two best in Helsinki (see Espresso Edge). It's a great place to spend an afternoon with coffee and friends. The big... More

This was a first experience of a restaurant where the owner makes sexually harassing comments about my wife to a waiter that had just showed her the way to the restrooms. I was sitting by the table nearest to the counter and heard their conversations. They guys there are Greek and thought that I did not understand anything as there... More

Very comfortable bar where have informal meetings, nice talks with friends or even be alone with your coffee. Run by a greek owner kee p a good mix of mediterranean touch with finnish rules. Sandwich are tasty, good coffee and tea. Tables and chairs, together with big windows give to the palce a good vibe.

I think you will be agree with me that it's a little bit strange to have a coffee in a place where you feel yourself like there's a hot sunny Greece behind the windows. All the atmosphere of Gran Delicato, decoration and taste of coffee make you to forget about nordic Finland. Very pleasant place!

If you have a special diet and food allergies, I suggest you to avoid this place. Basically the food is good and salads taste fresh, but Gran Delicato does not serve any gluten free bread or pasta, and they are very rude if you even ask them about it. They are also unable to prepare you a special salad with... More

Do you look for a place to have a brunch? :) Then this is the right place you have to visit! They have a best ciabatta, cozy atmosphere and friendly service. Actually I checked this cafe from tripadvisor and that's why I dropped by. And the ciabatta sandwich was even better than I expected! I was in the zone and... More
