Recommended to me by a local, this place is definitely worth a visit whilst in Helsinki. Buffet of great local food. Pots of steaming hot home cooked reindeer, meatballs, salmon and chicken.

A fantastic, gem of a find. Although we did not have a proper booking and were a walk-in, they quickly found us a table and preceded to explain how this mom-pop, authentic restaurant worked. Family-style buffet but not in a mass-produced way, with everything in its own individual pot like you would find in your kitchen. Fixed price, warm atmosphere.... More

Restaurant offers open buffet with great variety of local food. With one-shoot payment of 20 or 25€ (don't rememer exactly) per person you are allowed to taste and eat everything what is given: reindeer, salmon, other meats, fish, soups etc. It's incredible, in typical restaurant you get only one dish and not always perfect, here you can try everything typical...

We walked 20 minutes through scenic neighborhoods, only to find that Konstan Molja closed for summer vacation from July 5th to August 8th like many restaurants in Finland. August is the best time to visit. Helsinki.

The buffet of hot Finnish dishes (no desert) in a nautical setting was good value and enjoyable. Soups, lambs with anchovies, meat balls, salmon and spinach terrines, chicken, reindeer, and salads were presented nicely. Thanks for the vote if you found this helpful.

We read the reviews about this restaurant before visiting and we left with full bellies with well-cooked local food. The restaurant is laid out into 3 rooms, with the buffet being laid in front of the kitchen; pots of steaming hot home-cooked reindeer, meatballs, chicken, salmon and lots of trimmings. You could also get serving suggestions from the waitresses, but... More

We had read about this restaurant online and it looked like a good value for the price so we decided to try it. When we arrived I was surprised and happy to learn that everything on the buffet was gluten free, and that they had special gluten free bread and Finnish pastries in the back! The owner is allergic to... More
