This restaurant is adjacent to the Hotel Haven. The hotel deserves better. We had blinis and roe for starters, great blinis. The entrees, salmon and char, were just OK. The service was mixed, one attentive waitress, the other less so.

I went here for a bit more fancy lunch, to celebrate my husband's birthday. There was only one other party in the restaurant at the moment, so the service was really good, the waitress had time to chat, but she still left us alone to enjoy a private moment.
We had the Helsinki menu, which was nice. The blinis (served with fish roe) were very rich with butter, crispy and sour, as they are supposed to be. The fried burbot tasted excellent, and the dessert with sea-buckthorn and chocolate was very tasty.
The interior of the restaurant is very peaceful, with a view to the south harbor.

I had a christmas menu with a rib. Unfortunately this dish was not worth the price, as the piece of meat, 2x3 cm in size, was full of fat! Don't recommed!

We had a dinner here with a group of business people. This place was chosen particularly because of its good reputation with dishes made from different fishes.

Because of Christmas period, we chose fish buffet in a Christmas style as starters; eg different kind of herrings, lax, mashroom salad, caviar. It was very good indeed.
As main course we ate char, which also was good though the portion was a bit tiny.
The desert was cinnamon-pudding with different escorts, and that was great. All this accompanied with Spanish white wine.

Service was decent. Interior was ok. They clearly know their fish dishes. Not perfect but four stars.

Contrary to its apparent professional ambitions, Havis is an uneven restaurant.

The menu is promising, the food quite good... but definitely not really 'fine dining'. The presentation was not particularly stylish.

The service is brisk, but surprisingly amateurish. Some basic skills had been acquired, but clearly not internalized, not to mention refined. Wine skills left a lot to be desired. And: there is no maitre d' present (or at least visible).
