Booked a table for grandpa's birthday. Only one menu (buffet) available. The food was average and the service was really bad, we were almost totally neglected. Staff went eating themselves in another table, which tells a lot about this restaurants attitude.

Christmas buffet was really good, especially fish starters and deserts. I'm not a big fan of christmas food, so I skipped mains. View was really nice. Service was nice and quick. Price was little bit high.

We were two having the xmas buffet during the lunch time. Like in most buffets the starters and deserts were good, and the warm meal okey. But certainly xmas starters with variety of fish would alone be enough to visit this place. Cost for the lunch is however at the upper end.

Old water tower now used for reastaurant. Fancy view to city of Espoo and Helsinki and Baltic Sea. For lunch having buffet was excellent idea since as a starters range of fish was enough for whole lunc, baltic herring in different sauces, perch, whitefish etc .

This is a nice restaurant in Espoo, located in an old water tower. The view from the restaurant to the archipelago, Helsinki and Espoo is great! I was there on a rainy day, but even then it was impressive. The food is good and the buffet has a lot of choices. The waiters are very friendly and service minded.

All the food is well done, wide selection and so delicious. Easy to have 6 to 9 course, but it is self service. Special coffee selection. Super view over Espoo and Helsinki sea side.

There are not so many restaurants in Espoo that are a must to visit. This is one. The buffet is a way over standard price range but still worth every cent. There is a wide variety of cold appetizers. Especially the fish table is excellent. After several rounds of seconds, there is not so much room for the main course.... More

Place with a great view over Espoo, Helsinki and the sea. Went there for a business lunch few days ago and felt it was really a suitable place to talk business. The place was nice and neat, the starters table was varied with both vegetables, fish and meat and the dessert table was also huge offering ice cream, different sort... More
