Great pizza and reasonable prices. Quality ingredients and really nice service! The pizzas are huge so you can easily share one for two people. Or if you love eating just order two different pizzas and share them, they'll serve it half and half on the plates. Would def recommend!

easy 1 minute boat ride, runs every 5 mins. One of my favorite places in Helsinki on a summer night. It has a very relaxed chilled feeling with good pizza, salads and wine.

Take the time to walk and explore the little island, it is a really nice relaxing place and great views of Helsinki.

Had I visited on another day, with different weather, this review might be altogether different. This is not a place to go on a windy or wet day. Avoid it! I've never been for a meal where the food was literally blowing off the plate!
I'll start by getting the bad stuff out of the way first. The location is what attracts you to this restaurant - being situated on a little island a few metres off the shore. It is accessed by a boat that chugs back and forward regularly. It's the only way - there is no other choice. So why does the restaurant then charge €6 euro per person for the boat? What a rip off!! Factor this extra cost into the price of your meal.
Secondly, I stood for quite a while at the counter waiting to order while the staff pottered about moving glasses around. I didn't sense that customers were a very high priority.
Thirdly , there is no indoor seating and the place is exposed to the elements. Now, I realise this is what would be the real plus point on a gorgeous evening, but unfortunely, the weather had a different idea for our trip. There are umbrellas which help shield a little from rain, but they do nothing about the breeze. Unfortunately, during our visit, the weather turned and it became really windy. With no protection it was really cold and, frankly, downright unpleasant. I couldn't wait to get away. You really do need to carefully vet the weather forecast before going.
Now the good points - the feta salad I ordered was delicious and good size. Feta cheese was plentiful and unusual ingredients (pomegranate seeds) were a nice touch. Really tasty. My wife had the strawberry and cheese pizza, which was also really good and very unusual.
Prices were fair (€16 ish for each choice). But the alcohol-free beer (at over €4 for a small can) was a cheap supermarket offering which can be bought at any grocery store for (€1). Served straight from the can - no glass - makes the price a bit of a rip off, too. Factor in the boat ticket cost and the place is not especially good value. Main course, soft drink, boat ride = over €50 for 2 people (without dessert).
Am I pleased I went? Strangely, yes. It was an experience. Would I go again? Yes, but only on a calm, warm day. Will it become a favourite? Sadly, no.

We visited this pizza place via a short ferry ride and found what has to be one of the best pizzas we have tasted in a long time! You will have to be early to get a seat. Very reasonable prices on the menu and the pizzas are huge!

Definitely a worthwhile visit for anyone in Helsinki. The boat to the island is super cute and food is excellent. Will come here many more times this summer!
