Had the liver and some icecream for dessert. It is one of my favorite places to eat in Helsinki, that always serve no nonsense, well cooked, Scandinavian food. Their wienerschnitzel is also to die for.

The restaurant is very old and the decor is too, making it feel like you're not in the current era (in a positive way). The food is hearty and good. The salmon soup was especially delicious - not fishy. Excellent service from my young waiter.

Traditional Finnish foods as cooked by your grandma. Absolutely try the potato hash, it's such great comfort food. Cloudberry cocktail is excellent. This place started in early 30s and the atmosphere is still there.

HI, I just looked from website of Seahorse restaurant, and they don´t take reservations by e-mail. You have to call +358 9 628 169 if you want to make a table reservation. Enjoy your trip in Helsinki and in Seahorse! :)
