This place is fantastic!! A group of 10 of us ate here on a trip to Helsinki, and came back 3 more times within a week! The food was phenomenal, great service, and great atmosphere! Right on the water

I'm a local in Herttoniemenranta in Helsinki, and Il Faro is my favourite restaurant in my home area. Tasty lamb dishes, best pizzas in Helsinki, friendly service, and location by the sea (be it inside or out at the terrace) make this place an excellent choice. Pricing is reasonable, cuisine I'd call Italian and Turkish.

The list itself is ok and the dishes even look ok, when they come...yes if there is more than 5 tables taken and orders are taken even remotely at the same time the kitchen will collapse and you wait and you wait and you wait. Taest...it's ok but nothing you can't manage at home. It's also faster to go to the desk and pay rather than wait for the bill. Pillows on the chairs outside have obviously never been washed, don't go there with white pants or skirt! And be sure to check your bill, especially if you split it or pay some with coupons and rest the rest with cash or card.

We stumbled across this restaurant one night while with a group of friends. It was their 2 day open and we were treated like friends over for dinner. The food is all cooked from scratch and the result is culinary magic. The staff are great and the atmosphere is great also. A must for lovers of great food at humble prices!

We live closeby and have been frequenting this place for years.
The food has amazing flavors, best mediterranean meals ever. Service is mostly really niceand friendly, though in busy nights you may have to wait a bit. A sunny terrace with sea view during the summer is also a nice place for a drink or an ice-cream.
