“Ok, but nothing more. ”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

Food was ok. Beef was ok and the Walhall appetizer was great. They did not have duck, that was the only other meat dish. Service was just ok, the waiter did only what he needed to do. The location was good. Prices was a little expensive for what we felt was given back to us.

“Worst Restaurant”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Dining at Walhalla was probably the worst restaurant experience I ever had . We ordered Beef Tenderloin ("Chateaubriand") that came significantly undercooked, not prepared to specification as "Medium-Well", poorly garnished with watery mashed potatoes and defrosted meatball, and Salmon Dish ( "Savustettua lohta") with fish tasted like rubber, served with cold mashed potatoes and rotten asparagus.
It was a big disappointment as Suomenlinna itself is beautiful, so if you do not want to spoil your travel experience at the fortress DO NOT dine at Walhalla.

“gourmet restaurant”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

The restaurant has an excellent presentation. The food is good, however it is gourmet, ie the amount of food on the plate is low and it pays a lot. The service is slow.

“Wonderful pizzas and amazing ambience!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This restaurant is built into a cave on Suomenlinna! Absolutely stunning. Food was fantasti, too. Service a bit slow due to it being very busy but was worth waiting for and the staff were friendly.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

I took my business partners to "fine dinner" as I had good experience long time ago. I don´t know what has happend but this visit was disappointing. We pre-ordered our menu to be able to get food quickly. Starters were ok but main course was poor. Over cooked fasan was not good at all. Price-quality didin´t met this time. I can not recommend this restaurant. If you anyhow want to try, you should take ferry from Kauppatori to Suomenlinna fortress and follow the signs to Walhalla, you need to be prepared to walk 1,6kms in the fortress to get there. Second option is to find ferry which will take you directly to "Kings Gate" at Suomenlinna.
