It's near the open market and very good sights. The food is nice but not cheap and I think is not worth that much. We eat average 50 euro each and is only taste of food. I think I will not go there any more.

Hm...the place looks great. The food is good. We had reindeer filet and meatballs as well...very tasty. The deserts were nothing special. And the service definitely did not correspond to the price range or the atmosphere of the restaurant. The service was very informal more like local bar in a cottage. No attention to the customer whatsoever. There is a... More

Kappeli is well located, close to the market place, Esplanade shopping street and major attractions. When the weather is nice, you will love to see people strolling by and in winter time it's cosy to sit inside and see through the big windows snow falling. This time our visit was to give a birthday dinner for our teenage grandsons. The... More

Very welcoming brasserie/restaurant. Beautiful ambiance and very friendly and courteous staff. Went for lunch and dinner during our stay in Helsinki. Good food. Good value. A very traditional place and I would recommend. A very Finnish experinence.

This really well located, well designed and friendly glass restaurant is on the pedestrian walk way between the Eteläesplanadi road, two blocks from the port and farmer's market. It dates back to 1867, and it is where locals come every day for happy hour, for a bite, to chat, share, enjoy life. So why don't you? I did, and went... More

Stopped for coffee and pastries on the cafe side of the restaurant. It was okay, but nothing special. THe location is nice and we had a table in one of the round "glass houses" which was nice. Overall, an okay place to stop for coffee but not a special experience. It may be different in the sit down restaurant.

Attractive restaurant in Helsinki downtown, where one can have meals while seated in a glasshouse. Glass walls starting from the floor, unusual and surprising. Very good impact. In a situation like that, the quality of food is not the main thing (luckily), although here food is not too bad. The atmosphere is fantastic. During Finnish hard winters I suggest to... More

We came for a light lunch and each of us (4) had sandwiches which were excellent. It took a while for the cafeteria line to move,as customers seemed to struggle with the currency for something as simple as coffee or beer. Nonetheless, the staff was very patient and pleasant - something I've rarely seen at a cafeteria anywhere in the... More
