“Reconsider - a grill just outside may be a lot better.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Now, if you expect your food to be tasty and are not keen on putting own effort in getting the food, this is not your place. Don't let the location and tasty looking menu fool you.

What you get here is a good base for a dinner, you would just need to have a change to spice it up yourself. Which you are not able to do, of course. Having the salt and pepper in the table is not enough when the cook is being way too careful with the spices. If you have a cold or for any other reason can't taste anything, this will do very well.

The service is quite the average when considering the fact that you are in Finland. We are not famous for our customer service skills. Still you would expect the waiter won't stand staring you while you are deciding what to eat and in a restaurant almost empty, it should be easier to get the eye contact with the personnel.

I would also like to point out that if you nevertheless decide to give this place a chance, check your bill before paying it.

“Good food - close to Seurahuone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We went here eating yesterday, twice. :) We arrived a bit early as we were going to see the Opera festival. We took here lunch. My husband took scampi pasta and I took a mushroom risotto. They both were large portions and also very delicious. The service was OK; not slow/ignorant as a couple of previous reviewers had.
After the opera we were hungry and thought to take something to bite. As we walked in and saw some other people eating, also we got a bit more hungry and decided to order steaks. I took beef fillet mignon and my husband took beef fillet. They were both really good and my steak was perfectly cooked to medium.
Really worth the money.
