“Oasis in the snow (to use a mixed metaphor)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

I really like this place which is why I return so often. The venue is central; the dining room cosy yet with glass from floor to ceiling generates a feeling of lightness which is a good antidote to the grey which frequently besieges Helsinki in the dark winter months. Generally I eat the burger and will say this - copied by many matched by few. The chips are also crisp and a welcome change from the soggy offers which pervade too many restaurants. Service is good and the coffee is also pretty drinkable. I ate here on successive days and this applies to both visits.

“Sauteed reindeer is excellent, staff perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

My wife and me sat at a table facing the street, enjoying sauteed reindeer, dessert made of cloudberry. Most enjoyable. The staff was very helpful, attentive and caring. I asked him what kind of berry it was which came with reindeer meat. He took all the trouble to get me some more of the berry and explained to me what this berry, and what the cloudberry were. Managed to learn something from him.

“Decent quality but expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

I thought the food was ok, but very expensive for what it was in the end. However, the staff was attentive, and the ambience and everything else was really nice.

“Great food understaffed service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Atmosphere in the 19th century with people watching terrace and superb food. The unstaffed waiters couldn't keep up and the patrons were left waiting on entry, long delays between courses and an inattentiveness of being understaffed and an ineffective maitre d. Worth it for the food : Crayfish soup, great chicken dish but a 11.20euro beer is steep. This 5 star hotel has 2 star service.

“High Quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Highly Recommend. Service and quality was excellent. A little pricey but with hotel history /location / standard you should expect premium prices.
