Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We wanted to give a 2nd chance to this restaurant, and now it gave us delicious food, excellent service and perfect view to the harbour.

The (rather expensive) trout was appropriately cooked, but served without the warm potato salad and lemon sauce mentioned on the menu. Instead, some watery fruit pieces were the only accompaniment. No mention, no apology... The gewürz-chardonnay blend wine was tasty. The specifically ordered HOT Irish...Coffee was sadly LUKEWARM. Service at kitchen closing was prompt.. Sad that this attractive location joint never lives up to any quality restaurant decency.More

We ate seabass, but it was not well cooked. The waitresses seemed to be very stressed and tired. We payed 35 eur per food, so toi much for not well grilled fish and poor service.

Nice venue, bad service and below average burger for premium price. The patty was dry, sautéed onion was forgotten. First waiter didn’t do anything about it. Second waiter apologized and brought a small bowl of onion. All in all a disappointment.

Had entrecôte with meat that was more suited to being roasted! Lots of fat! Accompanied with tasteless broccoli. Far too expensive for what it is.

We have been there with our boat but beautiful sunshine and spring was the reason we decided go there now. Place is really nice and especially in summertime one of my favourite places. Take a quick bite, glass of wine or eat three courses menu,...everything goes. Nothing fancy but tasty and reasonable prices. And the sea with sailing boats, what more you can need?More

The renovated pavilion restaurant is absolutely one of my favourite new places in the Espoo-Helsinki area. The dishes are not only tasty but interesting, and for example the parsley root starter was one of the most delicious veg dishes I've ever had in Finland. The...service was fine and polite, my wife's questions regarding her dietary restrictions were dealt with care, and overall the atmosphere was nice and peaceful even with a reasonably full restaurant. The location is also amazing, and, to tell the truth, earlier it was the only reason to visit the place before the new restaurant took over – the difference is drastic. Finally Haukilahti harbour has the restaurant it deserves. All-in-all, one of the best price-to-quality ratios in Finland, best in Espoo.More

Huge disappointment. Food was ok but the waiters were so so bad. I wouldn't recommend. Waiter forgot half of the drink order. We never got any bread with the food, all other customers did.

The restaurant is quite booked ahead but on-line booking works well. We had a dinner for four adults and a teen. The list could be wider but there was something good for us all. Exept for the deserts. They were out of Pavlova, so not...all of us got a desert. The deserts were the weakest link anyway. Much praised blueberry pie was wierd and the chokolate thingy aswell. We enjoyed whitefish smorrebrod (although there were a scale in my dish) and mozzarella salad for starters. Risotto as main was good too. Whitefish soup was excellent. Chicken burger and entrecote were perfectly fine. Service was a little uneven. The head of the house was friendly and gave very good first impression. Unfortunately waitresses were quiet. It took a touch of too long for the dishes to get into the table. Anyway the restaurant is beautiful and the plates were very beutiful! The atmosphere was warm and lovely so we will check again after some time.More

Awesome lunch, including great salad buffet, super good fresh baked bread and warm main option (which was served to the table).
