“Nice view with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Located on the 10th floor - entrance from the south of the building. The decor is Finnish wood and comfort. Good food and service. The atmosphere is "good old style".

“Nice view in- and outside, but more attentiveness would be welcome”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

You need to know that it is located on the 10th floor as there are no indications towards taking the elevator at the entrance. Nice view of the city and the decor is also Finnish wood and comfort.

Food was okay though not special. Menu choice certainly fine and the wine list also well-stocked. We had to wait quite a while for the main course and although we were sitting almost next to the bar, the four people standing there were more involved with each other than in serving us drinks or paying notice to any waiving we made. Also waitresses walking around seemed not too attentive.

In the end they apologized and ofered us the dessert for free, which was a nice gesture. In any case go hear for the view and if you can spare some time (also before you are being seated, by the way).

“Over the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

10th floor at center of Helsinki. See citylife from bird perspective. Its more than half of pleasure too see view. Food is good and menu well coverage, wines are good and selection as good as food.
Summertime best possible outside terrace.

“Restaurant with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

I had a lovely dinner at Loiste with an old friend. Our waitress was very attentive and the service was fast. We had lovely jerusalem artichoke soup (5,50 EUR) as a starter and salads as mains. My friend went for salmon (17,50 EUR) and I had chicken (16,50 EUR). Argentinian Malbec (34 EUR) went well with the food. For Helsinki & the amazing view and the substantial meal this is very good value.
