Highly recommend the 18 euro buffet. The food was very good and the husband and wife running the place were very friendly.

I came for a weekend break ahead of a business trip and was looking for cheaper traditional restaurants - this is perfect. The hosts are traditionally dressed (assuming they are husband and wife) and the whole place is decked out like a cabin and dressed with hunting and fishing gear and old photos etc. The small buffet is the perfect amount of dishes to choose from if you are keen to try a bit off all of it; fish, chicken, meat stew, 2 different potatoes, soup, salad and all the cold accompaniments like pickles etc, lots of bread to try.. Really it is delicious, not fancy restaurant style but more a very good home cook. I really liked the meat stews; the chicken was a little dry since it does have to be kept warm. The place was very popular and busy so you should definitely book. And I would definitely say try it at dinner and pig out.

For a 18euro buffet in a city where everything is so expensive this buffet is pretty good! The reindeer tastes awful though..it almost put me off eating reindeer for the rest of my trip.

We stumbled across this small restaurant, quite by accident, & knowing nothing, but finding the menu appealing, went in & asked for a table.
What a wonderful surprise, !! The food was fabulous !
Genuine home cooked Finnish delicacies & traditional dishes, served buffet style, with many choices of appetisers & mains.
The appetisers included salmon, herring, beetroot, sauerkraut, picked cucumbers & dill. The traditional Finnish bread with egg butter was a favourite .
The main dishes included reindeer soup, a casserole of lamb, poached salmon, & reindeer in a different guise. I suspect that reindeer is quite similar to Kangaroo, in that it is very lean, & tricky to cook,, & would perhaps have been a little dry without the magnificent mushroom sauce which was the accompaniment.
A hostess in traditional dress was on hand to give helpful tips on what to choose & combine for best flavour partnerships .
Dinner for 2 , including. Drinks ( red wine & cider ) came in at less than 50 euros. What a bargain !!!
We'll go again Before we leave Helsinki .

The food is exactly what we Finns like to eat at home and every dish was absolutely dead on delicious. The restaurant itself is cosy, the staff very friendly and helpful and the price of the buffet is, even though not cheap, definitely not expensive. Totally worth the money. During summer the small restaurant gets very hot, but nothing too troubling. Everyone should bring their foreign guests here!
