This is a nice place to go 'Finnish food'. The place is comfortable, even though it is a little fancier. The food was delicious and portions were good. For a nicer restaurant with high quality food the prices are in no way outrageous and are in fact quite reasonable. I was here with a group of colleagues before Christmas and it worked out well. It would also be good for couples/friends. I had a really excellent steak (cooked properly!), and delicious pancakes for dessert. Recommended for what it is. My only complaint was that there was a mandatory coat check for 2 euros... Very strange for a restaurant.

I really like the atmosphere of this restaurant! It feels like stepping back into the 1930s. Also, the service is good and friendly and the food is very good.

Traditionally considered as a place for good finnish food, but sorry to say, not really worth the reputation. Pretty high prices, average service, food really not very good. I think I do not have any reason - unfortunately - to go there again.

We were there with some of our best friends, and had booked this because of the famous image of having fantastic finnish delicasies to choose from and traditionally good service. Well, both failed. Food was very basic, mine was literally spoiled. Service ok. I really cannot find any good reason to choose this anymore. Sadly.

We got a table without reservation at new years eve. I found the service to be attentive and fast. We ordered vorsmack for starters and coeur the filet provencal for main course. The portions are so big that you can manage without starters. Had to leave food on the plate from both dishes. Both were delicious, especially the main course with huge amounts of garlic. The atmosphere is special here, a bygone age indeed.
