We had booked a table an a Sunday to celebrate my daughter and luckily had a booking for otherwise we would not have come in. For a buffet the price is quite high, 49 €/person and you will not be able to eat worth the price. However, the quality is good and the food really is better than in an... More

Don't know what to say...All dishes had good quality, but that's all. Every single one tasted like my mother use to make it back in the 70's, but without seasoning. All tasted so... blend! Restaurant itself has so magnificent and breath taking view so it would nice to go there more often. But not with that food. And the price... More

The stunning view is already a good reason to visit Haikaranpesä. If you are looking for an inspiring lunch for a change, Haikaranpesä is a nice option at Espoo. Especially the starters were excellent, lots of quality alternatives. From the gluten free point of view everything was not perfectly marked and there was no good options (not possibly contamined by... More

This restaurant is located atop a tower overlooking the sea. The view is fantastic if you have good weather. I was here for a wedding dinner and party. Yes it is expensive but good value. Service was excellent. Food very good and high class buffet. All staff members were attentive.

We celebrated birthdays here for a Saturday lunch. The buffet offering varied from moderate to good, some of the cold fish was even excellent. I enjoyed salted salmon, smoked salmon and Finnish whitefish (siika), Finnish pike perch mousse (kuhamousse), avocado and shrimp salad and herring with different sauces. Service was professional and friendly even though the restaurant was almost full.... More

The buffet is really good, especially the fish selections, but as it's a little pit pricey mostly for special occassions. Not toomuch options for pure vegetarians, or for people looking for glutene free options. If you can get a table facing the sea the view is really nice. Service could be a little better.

Had a really great lunch in this very special location. The view from the top of the tower over the islands and the sea is marvellous. The lunch buffet was of high quality, offering all the delicacies Finland has to offer, very nice seafood!

An extraordinary restaurant at the top of water tower in the coastal area in Espoo. The food served is eatable, but the sceneries are the best part of the experience. You are able to see whole Espoo area and even longer. This is a restaurant you have to experience!

Thank Jarmo K
