Still, We had very good wines, white and red, I don't remember names unfortunately. Service was lovely, professional and caring. Recommentations for food options from staff was very helpful. Food;...

This very good restaurant is situated with a fine view to the Western harbour and close to the Radisson Blu Seaside hotel. We shared the impressive "Fruits de mer - Gala" (with more than 13 different dishes (among other oysters, king crab, and three different servings with shrimps) and a bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. Service was friendly and attentive.

I went here for lunch. The location is by the sea, so it is a great summer restaurant. It is an old restaurant. It is in the city but not in the heart. The service is great (I am comparing this to lunch and to other restaurants I have visited). The food is not at par with the service and... More

During many years I have invited my friends for a Xmas lunch. Two simple reasons: the quality and the price. The place is ideally located with easy access from the tram. The location with sea view is also one of the key points. I who have lived in Helsinki more than 6 decades would say that this is one of... More

The restaurant was very close to the hotel we were staying in so thought we would give it a try and very happy we did. Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable of the menu and advised us with reference to our first try of oysters (which were delicious). The bill was quite expensive in the end but for the...

Masterchef presentation and the food was nice but £5 for one prawn? Really?! We spent £80 and left still hungry so went to K-Mart for a sandwich afterwards. Very disappointed.

A nice location and a nice set of seafood offered by this little restaurant. The location overlooking the harbour and the shipyard is quite nice and special. City centre + seaside + shipyard mixture.

Weekday evening at Merimakasiini was very quiet. We had their seafood tapas for starter and mussels for main. Seafood tapas plate consisted of 5 different small dishes, all fresh and delicious. Mussels were - well, mussels - and the creamy broth was very rich and tasty. Service was friendly. Will come again!

Although it was dark the booth by the window overlooking the harbour felt very special, the whole ambience was smart but cosy. We went for the seafood and were not disappointed. I had the salmon and potato soup, creamy but light and my wife the mixed starter platter, tasty mouthfuls. For mains a delicious seafood risotto and a whitefish dish... More
