Nice riverside restaurant and (self described) meeting place near the national opera house. I need to return in a Summer evenings and sit outside on the terrace. I'm sure it will be fantastic.

We visited here for the blinibuffet. Unfortunately some of the blinis were burned (the table next to us also complained about it). The rest of the food was tasty but this meal was all about blinis... Since the restaurant is in a prominent place and looks quite classy, I was appalled by the service - it was like we were... More

It was busy Saturday with popular Christmas lunch. Still service was friendly and worked like a Swiss clock. Table reservation is highly recommended this time of year. Food itself was traditional but served with an innovative twist. Positive experience.

We had a four course dinner after sunset overlooking Linnunlaulu and Töölönlahti. The views were really nice. Also the service was good although we had three different waitresses during the dinner. All of the courses were good, especially the sirloin steak was especially yummy.

This is a nice restaurant in the park right in the center of Helsinki. The summer terrace is very nice. The food is very good, not fine dining, but casual dining with a touch and flavor. Can be truly recommended.

Restaurant located in very nice place in a park near lake closed to city center. Food was very tasty (portions are not big, but enough for one). Good service.

Lovely food with good service. I enjoyed a salmon starter, beef for main and a beetroot cake with rosemary ice cream - all were very tasty. It was washed down with a Finnish lager and a couple of glasses of malbec. I was lucky enough to have a good view across the water from my seat. Highly recommended.
