“Just head straight to the roof - amazing view”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

On the recommendation of a Finnish friend, went for drinks on the rooftop bar. You get a lift to the top, and then ascend with a tiny spiral staircase to a small bar with amazing panoramic views over the whole city. Even the ladies loo has a spectacular view - and in the summer since the sun barely sets you have all night to enjoy it. There are 2 outdoor seating areas but limited space since it is only a small place, most of the time the tiny 2 person bar had a 10 person long queue for drinks. I think it would be a squash for a group, but if you snag a table for two it's a perfect place for a late night drink together.

“Finnish cuisine with style”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I decided to use the Torni Ravintola as it was in the hotel where we were staying in. We'd arrived late on the Saturday afternoon and had made reservations by email.

The food is fabulous... don't let the euro pound conversion occupy your mind. It is expensive, however, the food is visually stunning, fabulous tasting and of the highest quality.

The blend of traditional Finnish flavours with modern high-end gastronomy is what we liked.

My wife and spent about €115 on a two course meal that included a glass of wine. Highlights of the meal included reindeer steak and basil cake with blueberry sorbet.

If you're looking for something different and special this is the place. Staff are friendly and cope with English easily.

“I only visited the tower bar this ...”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

This time, we were a group of colleagues visiting the bar in the tower, and it is still one of the best views over Helsinki. Living now in Beijing and having an apartment on 23rd floor, it is still amazing how to be on something like 12th floor and still being able to see over the city. Drinks are good here, a little pricey, but not much over 'street view' price
Previously I have stayed in the rooms many times, but too long time ago to give a good judgement
As always in Finland, there is no serving, so you have to go to the bar and order in a nice queue. Disappointing when staying in more service oriented placed

“Not impressive but not bad either..”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

"Torni"-tower in english.The restaurant yet located on the ground floor. Due to a fire decade's ago the restaurant on the top floor was never re-established.A bar was opened up there.
The restaurant is a little in need of a new look, quite worn-out interior.Staff's okay and professional, not a bad choice thou, food is Scandinavian and good quality but the restaurant is not really the hottest thing town on the food scene, a good average eight.
