Imaginative food without being excessively pretentious. Very helpful and attentive staff. Central location 2 mins walk from Esplanadi (where restaurant prices are simply ridiculous for what you get). This is Finland so nothing comes cheap, but Kaarna was worth what they charged for.

Great location in the centre. If you want to enjoy tasteful, reasonably priced finnish meal this is the place. Good service. Popular place, might need reservation sometimes.

Good finnish restaurant in the City Centre. Reasonable prices for Helsinki.

Good service but waiter always seemed on a rush when restaurant was not full

Food is tasteful and creative but sometimes not simple enough

Good wine list and suggestions provided by the staff.

I stumbled upon this one Monday night - many restaurants were closed (a tip for future travellers), and this was a welcome stop. Lovely main course (open face fish sandwich with salad), friendly staff and great view onto the main street. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it was reasonable bill (€21 for a beer and main).

Though located in the shopping mall, Kaarna has a separate entrance so you don't feel like you are in the mall. Nice view over a busy street (the restaurant is on the second floor). We shared a smoked reindeder appetizer, by husband had salmon (a very small piece), and I had whitefish. It was all very good and it might have been a reasonably-priced meal except for our 3 glasses of wine, which were quite expensive (as it is all over Helsinki).
