We had dinner here with our friends. The place is nice on the 10th floor and it has a beautiful view over Helsinki City . We had fish for the main course and it was ok. To start with we had asparagus with brociutto. Where was the brociutto? I mean it was on the plate but a Little tiny stamp... More

This roof top restaurant is in connection with hotel Vaakuna right in the center of Helsinki. Don't let that put you off. You can enter either via the hotel lobby or via a separate entrance at Kaivokatu. Just take a lift to the 10th floor and you are there. The view is over the entire center of Helsinki with an...

We ordered their Entrecôte steak and sweet potato puree which was a good choice: the steak was tender and juicy and the puree was creamy and tasty. The only criticism is that the dish was quite cold when they served it. The waiting service was very professional and quick and we particularly enjoyed the view from the 10th floor!

Great! I took the 10eur beef entrecôte steak with Vaakuna's dark pepper sauce and sweet potato puree and it was just perfect. The service was nice and the place is just beautiful. One of the best views to Helsinki.

The service where pretty ok even if they didn't find my table reservation. I ate salad with goat cheese with read onions. Quite tasty but goat cheese was really thin. Service was on good level.

Had a set dinner here with some colleagues,the service was ok, as was the over all experience. The starter was a moose pate, which still seemed a bit frozen when served, and not very tasty at all. The Pepper steak was the only thing that improved the overall experience as this was really well prepared, tender & tasty. We did... More

Full menu dinner. Starter plate with fish the best part of the menu. Pepper steak as a medium was not as it should have been. Chocolate cake was too "dry". Wines had a good match. Irish coffee was the Jameson.

This centrally located restaurant is situated in the heart of Helsinki. Take the floor to the 10th floor and ask for a table near the windows for the best views. The food is good but not excelent. They were also redecorating the building. This was definetly not the best time to be here. However, the service is great.

Thank Bert O
