We choose this restaurant for our last dinner of our 20 days traveling around Scandinavia. That was an amazing Trip!! We couldn't made a better choice. Stunning place, very chic and cosy, nice service, superb food and one of the best creme brulee i'd ever ate.

My dad and I ate there this evening, and had a wonderful experience. We made a reservation for 7:00, and I'm glad we did as the dining room was full when we arrived. He got the Kappeli salad and the chicken, and I had the fries and Charolais steak. Both of us were very pleased. We forwent dessert at the... More

The restaurant is very nice - a little bit posh. The food was excellent. We were a large group that was put in the basement and it was okay but a bit disappointing when you noticed how nice it was on the first floor. The basement was bland, but it was probably not space enough on the first floor. for... More

You might think that liver and onions is a common dish but not at Kappeli, it came on a bed of mashed potatoes sauce and a side of berries and nicely garnished. The restaurant is expensive however it is worth the visit and the food is excellent, my son had the best vegetarian meal of his life here too. The... More

You must try Kappeli. The place is very beautiful, and it was one of Sibelius' favorite places. Food is great! Sometimes there is someone playing piano. Great place!

we did not eat in side that had full service. We ate in the fast, self service cafe side. They had a limited selection of food, and the prices were high. I had the feta and spinach pie which was odd and not very tasty. the only plus was the location.

Kappeli is a cafe-restaurant-bar situated in the Esplanadi park. It's a beautiful historical building with windows from floor to ceiling, nice atmosphere. It is a Finnish restaurant however, so don't expect low prices or good service. Still very much worth a visit, especially in the summertime.

Kappeli is a very traditional restaurant, quite expensive and popular. The food is good. Unfortunately, the service is somewhat unfriendly. We had reserved for a bigger group and came a bit too early. There wasn't a chance to get a table before. We could understand that but the way how it was told was somewhat cold. When we got the...

Great venue with a lot of history. Catered for veggie wheat free diet in both the main restaurant and in the cafe. The cafe was always pretty busy but they let us sit in the bar area when there were no tables free in the cafe. For a unique dining experience try to get a seat in the corner turrets.
