I have dined in this restaurant several times with local and foreign friends . . . I recommend, for an authentic Finnish cuisine, worth what you will pay for, to try the Snapas appetizer: Slow-cooked salmon marinated in Napue gin, gravlax mousse and crumbled sweet and sour rye bread OR Wild boar simmered in Helsinki Porter, red cabbage and apple...

We found this restaurant by strolling through the mall and so glad we did! The staff were very friendly and the food was really good. Many of their dishes have meat but you can try reindeer which was delicious!

Restaurant with a view to Mannerheimintie but there ends the good sides. The food is overly priced and the portions really small. They couldn't even make a proper tea. The service was nice but clearly not from the heart. The only good part was that a bottle of wine with member card was quite affordable.

We noticed the restaurant while walking along the main road (mannerheiminte?) and it was only when we went upstairs we realised it is actually in a shopping Mall. It's close to both the main railway station and the Atenium Gallery. We visited on Sunday lunchtime and it was very busy, but we had a lovely table overlooking the road. The... More

We wanted to sample some genuine Finnish food whilst in Helsinki and chose this place because of its location and its menu. The menu includes a wide range of Finnish specialities, both as starters and mains, and offers an excellent choice at reasonable prices (by Scandinavian standards). Our reindeer and wild boar and red deer mains were very enjoyable. The... More

Kyrö Distillery's cranberry & rosemary long drink was a perfect appetizer, much better than original long drinks they sell in Finnish supermarkets. House red wine was good. I had surface-smoked salmon with chanterelle sauce and new potatoes for main course. It was a disappointment - the chanterelles were chopped to little pieces and the potatoes were dull. Also the dessert... More

You can start from Champagne witch is not expensive here or some good finish beer. Than you can try some tapas from wild meat or fish. And don't forget about salmon soup and finish meatballs.) Use free wifi to wright something about this place for travelers!
