In this restaurant you pay a fixed amount (19 euros, if I remember correctly) and eat as much as you want. Most dishes contain meat or fish but there were also some vegetarian options. The place itself is really pretty however it gets a bit crowded around the entrance, where the buffet table is placed. I really enjoyed the food... More

We wondered in off the street to a buffet of real Finnish food and loved every bite of it. The restaurant is kind of small, but the owners and staff are very helpful. The owner/manager told us the contents of every one of the hot dishes, which started with reindeer meat with mashed potatoes on the side, meatballs with boiled... More

You can enjoy Finnish food buffet at only 19 euro. There are many tourists coming in, so the people working at this place speak English and they are very friendly. Don't forget to pour berry sauce on reindeer meat. They also have many Finnish beer but I recommend wine made from berry in Finland. Make sure you are hungry before... More

I had the dinner buffet which cost 19 euros. The food was mainly traditional Finnish food, and the quality of the food is amazing. I really liked the deer meat dish. When I arrived at about 5 pm, as there were not so many customers, the waitress took the time to explain each dish in the buffet and how to... More

I was there in last month for a dinner with my friends and we feel great by very good climate, awesome food and nice service. You can not olny eat but you can learn some Finland's history from wall. Fully deserved 5 points.

Superb despite I wanted to eat a reindeer filet (I come from Peru and Brasil). We got dumplings and 'picadillo' with very charming environment. I suggest to every visitor in Helsinki but you have to make reservation in advance.

Packed with tourists to experience Finnish cuisine, we were lucky to get seats even though we were there quite early on a Tuesday night. Buffet is set on a smallish table, so a bit tricky to manouver to get what you want. The quality of the food is good. It is as close to home cooked as it will get... More

I was sent here by a friend who used to live in Helsinki. The buffet was a perfect introduction to Finnish food! Would highly recommend all of the food!

Very nautical (I'm told that Möljä is sailorspeak for a pier or jetty) theme of a small restaurant-- I think that my friend was the only Finnish diner in the place. Definitely need a reservation, and the food is buffet style (they take your drink order)...but a great way to get an introduction to all manner of Finnish food- reindeer... More
