We were four having dinner and business meeting... Starters are small and a little bit expensive to my opinion. Maybe it's worth to share them, although we didn't. Main courses are good quality and quantity at a reasonable price for Finland. Deserts are good as well and we'll priced. We had beers and couple of wine glasses. Total was less... More

Atmosphere is cozy. Bar side is living room like and nice. Restaurant side is more fine dining atmosphere. Food is ok, not in my mind worth the price.

If you want little bit better lunch served to table, Base is place to be. We enjoyed good smoked salmon and service was nice. There is also cheaper lunch from buffet.

Ok so you are on business in Helsinki in the unglamorous suburb of Espoo. When you need to grab some food close by and the options are limited you reluctantly give in to the clean looking place in the shopping centre. You set your standards low. This is not going to be posh, trendy or exciting. And so it proves... More

Sometimes accidents happen and this time it was expensive. 39€+ pepper steak ordered as "medium+" was totally raw inside. The sides were ok but over 50% of the steak was raw but I didn't want to change the dish due the long queue so I notified the staff and got one dessert free. Staff and service was excellent, above par.... More

Have had a couple of buffet lunches. I wish they would not take short cuts. Frozen fish, ready made potato salad. Most likely shall not go again for lunch.
