Restaurant Base is relaxed restaurant within Sello shopping center at Leppävaara, Espoo.

They are open for lunch on weekdays and saturdays. If you are with your co-workers, they do offer you buffet menu less than 10 euros. If you are with your customers, you might choose alacarte lunch which has always couple of choices for starters and main course. You could replace the starter with salad bar. Third option is to for the set business menu, but this is exceeded 40 euros per person.

In the evenings, the alacarte has more selections for appetizers, main course and desserts.

Winelist is in finnish scale better than average, with couple of champages, few other sparklings, about 10 whites not too new world dominance, 15 or so reds again with good old world choices followed by five sweets. Pricing multiplier for wines is quite average (around three on top of retail/street pricing?) and does not reach the 6 or even 7, which is a sad trend in some of the restaurants in Helsinki.

Reasonably good choice for multiple occasions, if you are in close proximity, but do not deviate from too far.

With a sit-down restaurant area, an informal bar with food service, and an outdoor summer terrace, there is a good chance that this place will offer something for most tastes. The food is of a good standard, although a little on the expensive side. The evening restaurant menu is decent. On the bar side, there is sometimes a weekday buffet lunch on offer, to reduce the bill a bit. On sunny days, the outdoor terrace gets busy. On the whole, it's down to earth and practical for both food and drink.

Base is located in a shopping mall, but it is far away from a fast-food kind of place. They serve really delicious food (international kitchen) and fantastic wines (they have a wine club in there as well). They are open for lunch from 10:30-15:00 and on working days starting from 16:00 You can order from the menu. Definitely a place suitable for a business lunch or dinner.

Probably the one of the best restaurants in Espoo. A good choice when you're looking for a real restaurant and are ready and willing to pay for it
