Visited this restaurant the first time as a friend had recommended it. We ordered beef tenderloins with cooking medium+... Well...they were more like medium- and one of us could eat only half of the meal. So...this was the bad part. The good part was the...service. In many cases where I have complained on the food quality, no reimbursements have been given. Here, at Manala, there were no question about it and I consider this as a sign of a restaurant policy which I strongly appreciate. So...even though my first visit was a disappointment, I will certainly give another chance to this restaurant because of the great service given.More
We both had the classic Manala menu which had also a discount to the price due to the on-going Lux light week here on Helsinki. They were out of reindeer but the beef balanced well also in the main. Creamy salmon soup was delicious and...warming, and the dessert pannacotta was good and not too sweet. We both hoped for more strawberries but understood they are hard to come by in January in Finland! :D All-in-all, a really good dinner and I could recommend this place for a tourist visiting Finland and looking for some typical Finnish cuisine in Helsinki. There's also pizza on the menu which are tasty, if you or someone in your party isn't keen on trying Rudolf the red nosed reindeer!More
Very nice and afordable meny. The best ceasar salad in Helsinki. A bit noisy now as it is the Christmasparty time and people are a bit tipsy. Famous old restaurant. Good locations and service. Deserts to die for
We booked table for 8 people, we had one extra addition, restaurant had no problem with that, extra seat found easily.
Satisfied, waitress continuesly came to table to ask any needs. Frequency was good.
satisfied to Manala Burger.
We had...great evening on this place, good service and nice atmosphere.More
It was a busy Saturday evening and the restaurant was fully booked, so we ate in the bar (same menu, same prices). Well presented starter, really large and well covered pizza, tender braised reindeer haunch. Quite a small bar area, but no-one was pressurised to...leave when they had finished their drinks or food. Full of locals - a good indicator of the quality and popularity.More
Liver and reindeer was excellent.
Pizza was not bad but not so special either.
Service was nice, but felt a bit slow service now and then. Still overall 8.5/10. So i do recommend to go and eat, because the main thing ( food ) was...super good ( except pizza).More
This restaurant was something of a gem for my little boy and me. The relaxed atmosphere and easy going service suited us just fine. Though interior was nice and rustic, we loved the little outdoor seating. Even though facing the street it was quiet and...nice with a view over to the nearby small park. The place was popular by locals and it seemed it had several regular customers.
We had a lovely summer salad and the five year old in the party told me it was the most perfect fish'n'chips he had eaten. All washed down with some lovely drinks.More
