“The worse food in Espoo/Finland”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I had an asparagus pasta with a white wine sauce and chicken. The sauce tasted like salty water with pepper. The service was amateurlike and rude especially from the main person in the restaurant. I would recommend people staying in the hotel next door to try another place.

“Live music in summer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We had a good meal, and it gets quite packed near Midsummer, even tho most locals are at their summer cabins. Food was tasty, but as in all things Finnish, a little expensive for an American

“Relaxed business lunch @ Leppävaara, Espoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Restaurant Base is relaxed restaurant within Sello shopping center at Leppävaara, Espoo.

They are open for lunch on weekdays and saturdays. If you are with your co-workers, they do offer you buffet menu less than 10 euros. If you are with your customers, you might choose alacarte lunch which has always couple of choices for starters and main course. You could replace the starter with salad bar. Third option is to for the set business menu, but this is exceeded 40 euros per person.

In the evenings, the alacarte has more selections for appetizers, main course and desserts.

Winelist is in finnish scale better than average, with couple of champages, few other sparklings, about 10 whites not too new world dominance, 15 or so reds again with good old world choices followed by five sweets. Pricing multiplier for wines is quite average (around three on top of retail/street pricing?) and does not reach the 6 or even 7, which is a sad trend in some of the restaurants in Helsinki.

Reasonably good choice for multiple occasions, if you are in close proximity, but do not deviate from too far.

“Good for a range of tastes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

With a sit-down restaurant area, an informal bar with food service, and an outdoor summer terrace, there is a good chance that this place will offer something for most tastes. The food is of a good standard, although a little on the expensive side. The evening restaurant menu is decent. On the bar side, there is sometimes a weekday buffet lunch on offer, to reduce the bill a bit. On sunny days, the outdoor terrace gets busy. On the whole, it's down to earth and practical for both food and drink.
