Fun place, nice atmosphere, cool people. Still, dont go here for dinner. The food is well below par, both in quality and in size. Our main was like a small starter, two bites and it was finished. The waitress looked embarrassed, I understand her. She...More

Place has a nice atmosphere and an evening sun. Food is nice and light. Prices are as high as in elswhere central Helsinki - glass of wine is more expensive than a bottle from the shop. Unfortunately the service was slow and insolent.
