A place to visite if you like german food, beer and wine. You can choose from a variety of german beer and self imported wine. The food is typically a little heavy like schnizels, schweinehaxen, wurste but also some vegetarian dishes. This is also a hang out for the locals in this part of Helsinki, Kruunuhaka. Very popular place and you are adviced to make a reservation at least during weekends. For bigger parties, they have some cabinettes for up to 25-30 people.

Nice Wiener schnitzel. Cucumber cream soup tasted good as well. Apple pie is not like the one I use to eat in Germany but was okay.
Atmosphere a little old fashion... Probably "German style"?

When it comes to German restaurants, the ambience, decor and hospitality are all equally as important as is the quality of food. Zinnkeller outshines the competition pretty much on all of the areas mentioned. It has over 30 years track record of hitting the sweet spot of German food lovers in Helsinki and it's easy to see why it is still so popular. The food is well prepared and yet kept plain and simple so that the taste is given the main role it well deserves. The roasted pork leg with sauerkraut and delicious sauce was the best I've had outside Germany. And the apple pie is not to be missed. Strongly recommended, enjoy!

I visited Zinnkeller again with my colleagues from the university on 31 May. I ordered steak and I was not disappointed. The dessert-apple crumble-was delicious too. I ordered a draft beer and it was fresh and light. The waiting staff was attentive and patient, despite having to serve about ten of us at our table.

We were in a group of about 55 people with reservations and therefore the meal bill was handled by the tour guide. We were rushed in, seated, served hastily, and rushed out. I cannot remember the meal because of what occurred. Our alcoholic beverages were billed separately. The last of our group to leave the restaurant was not only detained, but denied passage until she paid for a drink allegedly not paid by another at our table. We were unaware of this until the group met the next day, but there is a receipt for the drink having been paid. This is inexcusable. Basically it is illegal detention, robbery, and theft. Call it lie, cheat and steal.
