Strolling along the Espanade from Market Square we checked out menus and prices at restaurants along the way. This was our first evening in Helsinki and all seemed expensive. At the end of the Espanade ( the Stockman end ) we came upon a wine and salad bar called "Wine & Deli". Wandering in we found the salad bar where fresh salads were made to order by cheerful and helpful staff. Salads included two generous toppings of your choice and more could be added from a wide range of options. Delicious breads were also available. We paid € 25 for two salads which included prawns, extra toppings and breads. There are several seating arrangements from bar style ( standing or high stools ), outdoor terrace to comfortable sofas. We settled into a sofa and enjoyed a fresh, tasty and healthy meal. We thought that Helsinki was not as expensive as people said....until I asked for a glass of merlot at the bar...€15 please! In fairness it was a large glass. Sitting on a sofa balancing a tray with a bowl of salad and a glass of wine on your knees requires some skill...and yes, there was a mishap!! Best use the tables when eating.
Home now, we agreed that our meal at the "Wine & Deli" was the best value and most memorable ( due to the mishap! ) we had in Helsinki during our five day stay. We now regret not having returned.
"Wine & Deli" is part of the more expensive Ravintola Teatteri.

This review is about Wine & Deli, a part of the grand Ravintola Teatteri. We found it accidental and were happy about this finding as it’s very good option to have lunch with healthy foods on your own taste. For the price less than 10 euro you can choose two from variety of toppings like smoked salmon, shrimps, cheeses, mushrooms etc. and one from several dressings on the salad base, piece of bread, and still water with ice and/or lemon is at your disposal. For extra charge there are extra toppings available, coffee, tea, wine, etc. The restaurant has also very comfortable toilet rooms.

Over the road from Stockman, there's a small cafe restaurant, Wine & Deli, which is part of the grand Ravintola Teattri. Whilst it is much more simple affair than the main restaurant, the salads and mouth watering and the staff charming. Great lunch stop.

Teatteri-restaurant is located at the Swedish Theatre (Svenska Teatern) next to Stockman department store. It is consisted of at least two different restaurants. There is a cafe that offers wonderful salads and savories during the day. It's a bit noisy and crowded but the salads are really tasty. 'Teatterin grilli' is located on the upper level. During the summer, when it is not raining, 'Grilli' has a wonderful terrace facing the Esplanade park. If you feel cold, you can have a blanket around but they do not serve inside. When rain occurs, they open huge umbrellas on the terrace...

The food is fresh, made of quality ingredients. It is tasty, carefully made. Prices are pretty high but you pay those prices in all restaurants in that area. It's very popular so make your booking in advance - you can also book on the internet and get a confirmation in your e-mail.

Teatterin Grilli is one of the trendy, modern and youngish places right in the middle of Helsinki. Adjacent to the Swedish Theater and opening up to Esplanadi, promenade with a park, it would be difficult to find a better place to start your evening. Food here is almost fine dining, and not very cheap, but it is worth every cent. If the weather is nice, the tables are catered outside so you will be dining out, also literally.

We were a company of five and had a variety of dishes among us, and almost everything was really good. Only minus comes from the " Grilled scallop and scampi skewer with roasted aubergine, zucchini and bell pepper…24,70", which was a bit ordinary compared to the price and the standard of food in the restaurant otherwise. Overall, the place is really worth trying. Remember to book in advance if you are more than two.
