“Very good- would go back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Had a business dinner at Salutorget a while back and it was really great - good service and the food was tasty (although the appetizer toast skagen was really small compared to the price). The interior is nice for being an old bursar’s office with bank like fixtures. The restaurant was quite crowded that evening so the noise level was a bit over my preference, making it difficult to hear conversations from the other end of the table. However all in all would go visit this restaurant again. )

“Superb environment, ordinary food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you want to eat some scandinavian food in really stylish building - this will be a good choice. Building is one of the oldest in Helsinki and it has been renovated with glamour. Staff is very helpful and friendly. These are really excellence level.

Food is ok, it is scandinavian style in good and bad - you know you'll get good meal but there is nothing special, actually like in scandinavian kitchen - they use 1 class food and spoil these with butter and salt... But dont worry, if you want better meals - just pick from menu things where is no pepper- or creamsauce :)
And in summertime there is also terrace, inside there is bigger hall or you can hope to be seated near windows where you can see also little bit of sea.

“Wonderful Food, Wonderful Atmospher”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

The decor is simply stunning. An ex bank with marble pillars, stained glass and aboslute first class service. Very attentive waiting staff, and very well presented food. The Reindeer shank was excellent.

“a bit pricey, but still pretty nice Sunday brunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

The brunch is served 3 courses. For starter and desserts, they have those in buffet style and main course will be served on the table when you notice the waitress that you have done with your starter.

The food quality was great for starter buffet. They have quite a lot to choose from, and every dish worth a try! I love the duck sausages with ligonberry jam, and Gravlax with salmon roe creme on crispy bread. Those are really typical Scandinavian style. The herrings in three different flavors are delicious too, we particularly love the one with dill sour cream.

The main course is a surprise! My boyfriend had the veal cheek with morel risotto, and the veal was so tender and delicious. The risotto was nice too with very creamy texture. I have the roasted cod with potato puré. The cod was average but the potato puré was quite beyond my expectation.

The dessert part wasn't my favorite. In general it was either too sweet or too sour for me. And the variety was a bit limited. But I guess after a great starter and main course, I didn't need a huge dessert anyway.

This place has great location since it is only steps away from the market square. It is convenient to take a walk along the coast after a brunch.

“Best Toast Skagen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

This restaurant is really stylish. They serve the best Toast Skagen in Helsinki. The cafe was very continental and the bar had intimate feeling. Why past tense? Because they are doing some renovation for both. Hopefully they do a good job and do not ruin the whole place. It would be a shame since Salutorget has been our favorite since its opening. The summer terrace is wonderful despite a heavy passing traffic.
