“wonderful food and atmosphere: head for the main dining room upstairs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Centrally located, I had lunch here a couple times during a brief stay in Helsinki; to get up to the main (and more charming dining room) go towards the back of the first floor 'bistro' area, go up the stair case and through the bar area to the restaurant: a large sunny room overlooking the park. The food is excellent, an updated 'traditional' scandinavian cuisine. It's casual-bourgouis style (in the good and not the negative sense)- service can seem a bit slow to urbanites accustomed to rushed meals, but if you relax into the pace and savor the food and ambiance you will thoroughly enjoy this special restaurant.

“Excellent menu, friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

This centrally located restaurant is dedicated to the Scandinavian kitchen and the interior decoration is also Scandinavian "old" style. We went there before going to the theatre and had a lovely, three-course set menu. The service is great and the ambiance lively and welcoming.

“Cozy cosmopolitan welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Many, many years since last visit hence pleased it existed! Cozy entrance with velvet curtains to keep out cold winds and drafts - thoughtful and elegant gesture. Reminded me of empiric days of affluence and nostalgia. As a meeting place for lunches, snacks and coffees location is perfect and is now adopted as the meeting place for my likeminded and spirited cousin and ME.

Food was delicious and served without delay by friendly, professional and smartly attired personnel. The ambience was that of excellence in providing hospitality, cleanliness, efficiency and not rushing customers but allowing customers to linger and enjoy themselves while being observant and available to serve at a moments notice.

“Highly recommened”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Located in the centre of Helsinki facing the Esplanade park, on the buildings second floor. Very nice lounge/bar area! Dining area bright and cosy. Skilled and friendly staff. Nice Menu, very good food and quite inexpensive even with this location. Will return for sure.
