“Excellent Brunch”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We had a excellent sunday brunch at restaurant Töölönranta.
There are high quality buffet and champagne was cool under the sun at the terrace.
We were very happy about the service and high quality food.
Fish, meat, cheeses etc. and all very tasty. Good choice.

“Very Good, but not amazing.”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We had a business meeting and I ate lunch menu here. For starters I had beetroot vanilla soup, which was really delicious, but the portion size was too big for a starter. I was full after the soup. My main course was chicken with polenta. Chicken was huge compared to the amount of polenta. Chicken was little bit too dry. For dessert I had strawberry pudding, which was really nice and fresh. Friendly and nice service and nice setting at Töölönranta.

“Higher image than delivery”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Toolonranta is very beatiful situated just beside the operahouse of Helsinki and with waterview over one of the small city lakes.
This evening in June every table is occupaid. The service is very freindly but the lack of competence is revealed rather immediately. We had a preordered three coursed dinner, but decided to start with a beer. After a couple of minutes the waitress comes with a strawberry drink, after we had our first sip of the beer. Then after a couple of minutes more we were served the wine. Sitting with three different things to drink was not an optimum.
The first course was an asparagus soup with truffle oil. It looked very nice but the taste was very ordinar. Not much of the asparagus taste but much more of the truffle which tended to take over. The main course was a grilled white fish with lenses. Also quite ordinar, perfectly cooked, but no extraordinary taste. The best was the dessert, a perfect Creme Brulee with buckthorn .. if it not had been for the accompaning coffee that was served so well ahead that it was finished before we got the dessert.
To summarize: Nice and freindly restaurant but behind it is some quality issues.

“Avergage dining experiences - not really up to the location.”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Avergage dining experiences - not really up to the location, view and general image. Dishes were mostly "OK" but with the pricing and image they give, one would expect some more "wow"-effect also in terms of taste.
