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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We enjoyed my son’s birthday kunch over here. Delicious burgers and fish soup - we really enjoyed them. The price level was reasonably high. The service was very friendly.

Extempore visit to restaurant. Base was one of the few that were open a bit later in the evening because of Covid-19 restrictions. Friendly service. Food was good.

A great, cozy place to hang out with your friends. The staff is beyond amazing and kind, which is one of the best parts about this place. The layout is great and the seating very comfortable, so you can either have a more intimate nook...with a friend to chat or hangout with a big crowd. Always love coming back to this place.More

We ordered Italian dishes, and they were very good. But the waiting time was more than we expected.!!

Everything looked fine until we get the food. I ordered a steak medium-well, only to get it bloody as hell. I had a few bites and debated whether I should ask for it to be redone. After staring at it for a few minutes the...people with me at the table suggested I should mention it to the waiter. I did, and waiter was very understanding and apologetic. He took my plate and came back about 15 minutes later with the condiments being redesigned but the stake untouched and cold. I didn’t want to make a big story so left it in my plate. Everyone finished eating and the waiter picked up the plates including mine and apologized again making us understand between the lines that the cook didn’t want to fix it. His ego must’ve been hurting I guess. Bottom line I consider that mediocre service, if he didn’t want to cook it that way he could’ve said so from the beginning. Besides the waiter’s nice words to try to make us understand that there’s nothing else he can do, no one from the restaurant (chef or Manager) came to get our feedback as we were clearly upset. Not much customer service there. Needless to say that it was my first and last visit.More

We arrived late and it was a pleasant surprise that a good restaurant was open. We ate only the traditional fish soup which was a meal on its own so late in the night, but we ventured and had the blue cheese burgers a whooping...200gr of meat etc etc. Beer selection was broad and can be considered pricyMore

Especially during summer time you get to go outside on the terrace, of course depending on the Finnish summer.

This place is nice, good food but odd (to an English guy) location just inside a shopping center. It’s good for a slightly better dinner if you are staying at the Glo hotel, Try walking up the steps to the William K pub good beer...and bar snacks.More

Basically grabbed a quick after-work meal with a colleague and found the place very satisfactory. Especially friendly service and pleasant vibe. We ate in the bar, but it's the same menu as the restaurant, just different ordering. A had a very good dish of pasta...with meatballs, my colleague an excellent looking (and tasting, according to him) burger. Not fancy, but good.More

Close to the Glo Sello hotel, this place is a good recommendation for dinner. The meat is simply delicious and well prepared. The place is also offering a collection of tasteful local beers. The waiter was very friendly and made good recommendation for the meat...and the beers. I'll back soon at that place ;-)More

I went to Base for a quick bite and a beer with a colleague. We both had burgers . Price around 17-18Euro. The burgers were tasty and generous. There was quite an extensive menu if you want other dishes, but all pretty pricey to my...mind. Service was impeccable. Even though the exterior warned us that we were entering a simple beer joint, the atmosphere inside was a mix of cost and classy.More
