Excellent view, great location. Just burgers available in the upper deck (well, barbeque ribs too), which is a bit disappointing since the place is gorgeous, makes you want to eat seafood :) Burgers were tasteful and they came really quickly but the minced meat was...very raw. A bit disgusting, even though the meat is probably Finnish and appeared to be fresh. Potatoes with majo tasted excellent. Food was served without plates, just on the tray. Not sure how hygienic that is but maybe I am just too picky.More

Went for family icecream, one ball 3€ but it is not really a ball at all - its a size of two cafe spoons and over. Ridiculous size for 3€ so no recomentation for icecream, go somewhere else instead.

Visiting this popular place was really a nice surprize! Even if the weather was very cold and this place has only outside seating, it was fine! No service to the tables but you can easily make an order and get your drinks to the table....Food was surprizingly good! There were even some dishes over the menu, just to ask! Rates were lower what we expected!More

Visited twice during a short trip to Finland. Loved everything about this place. Nice food -- salads were fresh, salmon soup was tasty, and burgers looked quite nice too (next time will have to try a burger). Setting is perfect, especially the upstairs deck. Pick...a nice Summer day, bring your sunglasses, and enjoy a nice lunch/brunch/etc.More

The patio deck of Majakka is very attractive, above a local marina. Beverage selection is limited, and not replenished fast enough.

The food was of terrible quality. The tofu, the asparagus and all the greens in the tofu sandwich tasted like they had gone bad days ago. The service was also pretty much non-existant. I ordered a soda and I wasn’t even told that I need...to go pick the bottle up myself, or given a glass and ice whatsoever.More

I had the worst food i have ever eaten. I ordered chicken BLT and it was so dry and tasteless I couldn’t eat it. I will never go again.

The views from the top terrace are great, however the food was below all expectations. We had three cheeseburgers and in all of them the minced meat beef was almost burnt and extremely dry. I have never eaten so bad burger in my life. The...service is ok, but nothing special either.More

We went there as our friends spent the weekend in Matinkylä, all of our burgers came cold and my friends salad came without dressing. We asked to redo them and the burgers came back... very well done and extremely dry. Forks were missing from the...counter and ice wasn't available downstairs neither upstairs.More
