The Lasipalatsi building was originally built in the 1930s to serve as a temporary bazaar. After years of glory and some years of degradation, Lasipalatsi underwent a complete renovation and reopened its doors last autumn. The architects restored the original funtionalist style of the building with pure white walls, large windows, interiors with warm colours and delighful little details. Neon lights on the wall outside have been characteristic of the building right from the beginning. Nowadays Lasipalatsi hosts a movie theatre, a library, a TV studio, a media centre, a restaurant and three cafés amongst others. The legendary Lasipalatsi restaurant is situated on the first floor of the Lasipalatsi building. The restaurant seats 250; it also has a bar, two cabinets, and a Winter Garden which is rufurnished to its 1930s style with live palm trees. The à la carte menu reveals Finnish traditions with fresh domestic raw materials, combined with international influences.

This restaurant is very easy to achieve from wherever you come. Menu itself is solid from quality perspective but offers nothing memorable/exceptional. View over Mannerheimintie from the second floor is nice but stairs up make you feel that you're getting to a bus station bar.

Also friendly service and nice surroundings! This place is in the middle of Helsinki, very near the railwaystation and the main bus station, but on the 2nd floor so you´ll get away from all the hustle. Take your time to stop for lunch or dinner, or just a drink. We got three courses from the menu; for starters I had... More

What a wonderful location this is! It's like a journey back in time to the 50's, almost feels like your in Mad Men or something. The food was wonderful and the service spotless! Well worth a visit, I'll definitely be back here!

Fish and other Finnish food in season - nothing spectacular. Rather popular for business lunches mainly because of its central location. Cafe Lasipalatsi downstairs has better buffet lunch for a fraction of the price.

An interesting restaurant. The building and the whole ambience exudes 30th century style, although the restaurant's interiors might think first petrol station lunch mode. Take a closer look place setting starts allure. I chose the asparagus meal, "eat as much as you want," and indeed it was a good choice. The dose was really tasty and offered a great taste... More

Nice restaurant, centrally located, very friendly service, and they had in season asparagus. We were surprised that they already had them over here, while at home in the Netherlands they had just started selling them this season. The waitress answered: they are from Holland, because they are the best. We took a starter with asparagus because of the Finnish ham.... More

We had dinner at Lasipalatsi and we selected the asparagus menu, it was excellent and in my view very reasonably priced for what you get. Of the 5 dishes, the only one that was a bit too ordinary was the dessert, below the rest of the meal. The others were all excellent and different. And the wine suggestions we had... More
