Just dropped to quick lunch. Home(Finnish) cooking lunch menu with salad and dayly specials. Old nice environment very contemporary site. For international travelers may be too much exotic dishes.

Vanha ylioppilastalo is a multiuse event space, which houses different events, parties, concerts and so on mainly in the night time. But as I discovered today, half by accident as I was looking for a place nearby to get a quick meal, it also sports a bar & cafe that serves lunch daily. I was quite happy with my find, as it appeared to be fairly unknown as a lunch restaurant, which translated into no queue, and tables and food readily available (build your own). The place was thus calm, and as a setting the architecture provides a nice ambience. Service was friendly enough. At least this time, Vanha proved to be a small oasis in the middle of a hectic workday.

The legendary K50 disco is hosted now in The Vanha and the place is packed with people over 50 years of age. This is the event to score some elegant company.

The previous reviewer is absolutely correct, the view from the terrace is to die for. Nice, unhurried, friendly service and a top spot for people watching. What's not to like?

Vanha's terrace is my favorite terrace in Helsinki. It isn't too crowded, the bartenders are super-friendly and the views over Kolmen Sepän Aukio (The three Blacksmiths statue and Stockmann) are great.The only downside is that the terrace is quite small and there are only a few seats by the railing.
