Expensive and medioker. 14 euro for lunch buffe with soup, veg. And meat main course. Simpel lasagne and not very speciell salad buffe. For me, who is use to other finnish and swedish lunchplaces it felt like a real tourist trap.

Nice sunny place with high ceiling located in Arktikum museum. Soup with shrimps was ok, chicken wok: a little overcooked rice noodles and Finnish style sauce, but good. Salads are good, service is very friendly and quick.

We stopped here for lunch after our visit to the museum. They offered a buffet menu and we found it very good and also convenient. There were both meat and vegetarian options.

This place has a good lunch to offer on weekdays. It is buffet style so you can have as much as you want. Other times there is coffee, sandwiches and snacks to try.

After visiting the museum, we certainly wanted to have - after three hours of trekking exhibits any progoladaetsya. Despite our skepticism, we tasty and not too expensive meal. Service as such is not - but we do not need him, it was enough that the food was high quality and fresh. Delicious Cake)

I had a great buffet lunch for 8.50 Euros. If you have a great breakfast and then you do your lunch here, you can live off food expenses at around 10E per day. Bargain.
