Fazer is to Finn like Lindl to Swiss... This Cafe has a good selection of sweets and also offers food (lunch, salads,...). Place is in top floor of main Department Store (Stockmann). Good if you are shopping but otherwise too expensive for just a normal Fast food style place. Noisy and not the cleanest place I have been. If you... More

This is a large food factory at the department store Stockmann. If you like Fazer, go to Karl Fazer Café, Kluuvikatu - the one and original. Stockmann Fazer, F8, café is ok, very overpriced, long lines. Lunch restaurant is often busy, not so clean, lot of noise, long lines, poor salad. Basic food.

F8 is located on the top floor of Stockmann department store. The place in itself is stylish and you'd expect more from the quality of food. There was nothing wrong with the food, but don't expect any thrills either. If you want to have an easy bite between shopping, this is a safe bet.

The Fazer 8th floor cafe is a hidden treasure that is frequented by elegant older men and women. I don't think tourists have discovered this hidden treasure. Actually you can take your pick of restaurants that are under the umbrella of "Fazer 8th floor", including a self-service cafeteria, a champagne bar and the cafe that I am most familiar with....

Loved the Chicken Pasta, and the Hamburger. Plates are cooked and prepared in front of you. Affordable for the place and quality (12-15€), and quiet.

The restaurant is located on the 8th floor of Stockmann in Helsinki. We had Salmon and steak and the food was delicious and the portion was good. There was not too many customer when we went and we got a full attention of the attendant.

I strongly recomend this place for lunch while shopping around. Self service but cooking is done upon your order, you can stand and watch. The grill station is popular but pasta or wok goes well too. What is best for me is the salad, you don't need to eat anything else after.Ingredients are fresh and high quality.

There's actually a number of restaurants and cafes within 'F8' (refers to 8th floor of Stocmann department store). This review is condering the restaurant with table service (not the buffet restaurants or cafes). So: for a restaurant within a department store this is one of the better ones that I have visited. There's perhaps a bit of noice from kids,... More
