Prices in Helsinki are generally high, so we were lucky to be able to find this restaurant for lunch! Only 15 euros for an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet. It was really accidental. We didn't know about this place before but we all love it! I particularly love the reindeer cheese soup. Very delicious!

Want a cheap lunch? For under 10euros you can get a buffet feed. The food was pretty good considering how cheap it was. Plus they had multiple tv's around the restaurant featuring Ice Hockey...like what more does a lad need in life? Tacos, buffalo wings, pizza and Ice Hockey!

This place is a bit schizofrenic...is it really a sports pub or a restaurant? It want to be both, but in my opinion this result in a second choice both as a sports pub and restaurant. I ordered a pub classic, nachos with minced meat and cheese. And cheese I got! The only halfway melted cheddar was drowning any nachos... More

Loved the nice ambience with "Tears of the Reindeer" and the nice platter of various reindeer and Elk meat and fish reparations. Great experience but pretty expensive !

Our meals were on the large side but fantastic, well presented with great sides. You could sit outside in the cool of the shade and just watched the world go by
