The beefsteak was excellent, perfectly fried and served, but to our great disappointment the mash served with the liver was instant, which spoiled one third of the gusto, and the waitresses took no interest whatsoever neither in presenting the dishes for us nor how we...More

The menu was promising and interiors were quite nice. Appetizers were ok, main dish was mediocre and dessert was good. Service was pretty basic. All in all, it wasn't bad, but I think you can get better meals with these prices.

A gem in Helsinki: the food is great and there is a great variety of choices, including the bar. Personnel is available and discreet, making it more enjoyable.
