4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The chef was accomodating and the wild mushroom risotto was delicious. Beautiful atmosphere and cozy. A good first start!

“One of many good spots for a quick lunch in Helsinki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Okay, so I only went there for lunch and can't comment on the dinner menu... The lunch buffet was quite reasonable and the food was very good. Choices were limited, but that's to be expected. I've learned that although many Helsinki restaurants are a bit pricey for dinner, many serve a reasonably priced lunch - often a small buffet. Just right for a mid-day break from doing business.

“Delicious food but small servings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Not related to the Hotel of the same name, this restaurant offers a buffet lunch while the downstairs has an a la carte menu. The food was well presented, tasty and of excellent quality, but the portions were small. This always seems unreasonable to me, as the major cost must be the staff in such an elegant surroundings. For us, it was a special occasion which we enjoyed

“Good Service, Delicious Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

We went to this restaurant because it was the only one where we could reserve a place for 6 at 9:30 on a snowy Saturday night. So, on the way to the restaurant, we lowered our expectations thinking that as all the other restaurants we called were full, this one must have something wrong. We were wrong: the place was very nice, just in 5 minutes walking distance from Main Train Station Square where our hotel is situated. As we were quite late, we were very hungry and our meals were served very quickly and they were all very delicious, the wine selection was very satisfactory and the overall experience was near to perfect.
