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.

A huge buffet for appr. 35 euros each with quality foods and very good service. Teppaynaki grill was superb, they wok the food for you and then bring it to your table. Meats include big shrimps, cangaroo etc. As for drinks, only water included, no soft drinks anymore. A big recommendation though, it's every time an experience!

Today was my third or fourth time visiting caverna and I am never dissapointed. This is my favourite restaurant in Helsinki because of how large the restaurant is, very friendly and swift staffs and the food!! The buffet has it all! ; Sushi, Scandinavian meals, seafood , tasty desserts, tasty meat (varieties) that they bring to your table while you eat. You would eat to your satisfaction and get your money's worth believe me. I love this place and when I have visitors I always take them here and they are blown away! I highly recommend this resturant and would visit again. Thank you.

Very large selection, many quality foods, wok grill great with seafood and meats, personally served to table after cooking. Friendly service and nice ambience! Glass of house wine was 15,90e on top of 51e buffet price for one person

I wouldn't say that the food was that good compared to the price we paid (51€ per person). While giving my food to kitchen for them to fry it I mentioned that I'm vegan and they said that's okey but later as I got my food I could taste that they fried it on a same pan that they had fried fish on (thats fine as long as you wash it in between but they for sure didn't do that). Luckily I'm not allergic to fish otherwise it could have turned out very badly! And after we finished and paid with cash and were already leaving they tried to scam us and convince my dad (who had few drinks and was maybe a bit tipsy but not drunk) that he didn't pay enough and that 50€ was missing but as he said that he only brought certain amount of money with him and that he will check how much he has left they all of a sudden found the missing 50€.

Caverna first seemed really nice, and i was excited for the churrasco, and the buffet looked good. The teppanyaki looked great, and while i felt like going for it, the first piece of meat from the Churrasco was so good, i thought i'll just wait for more, just to wait and wait and them not coming back at all anymore. So during the hour we spent eating, they came once, and that was in the beginning when my plate was already loaded with things from the buffet, so i figured I'll take more when they pass by again. Extremely disappointed. If that's the system, they should tell us, in similar places in Brazil they just keep coming. Also that they have no prices for drinks available on the table is very suspicious. 51€ for this is ridiculous. if it was closer to 30 i'd be fine but this was a disgrace to restaurants in Helsinki.

We had reservation for saturday evening. All went smoothly, we got nice private table. There is big buffet with asian and Scandinavian selections. What makes this place spesial is teppanyniki and various meats they bring to your table and cut. If you like seafood and meat this place is for you. Evening buffet is pretty pricey. If you are planning romantic quiet moment you should know it might be crowded and pretty loud.

Beautiful place, but the least vegan friendly restaurant I've seen in Helsinki in a very long time. Huge, expensive buffet with loads of meat and fish. Very hard to find anything vegan. When asking for vegan options, waiter questionned my diet and said "but why isn't mozzarella salad okey, there's no meat in it ?".

We came for a work lunch with a group of 8 people. The waiter went to find out about our payment method and asked us to wait. We waited for a long time and when we went to see what was going on, all the waiters were having a lunch break and nobody had told us that we could start. There was also an unexpected service fee of 15€, that nobody mentioned beforehand. When we asked about it, the waiter was very unfriendly and explained that it was the company’s rule. I gave feedback, that we would have liked to know that beforehand, but he responded by accusing us of not making the reservation. The waiter’s attitude was very defensive and unfriendly, and we left feeling very bad about the experience. Cannot recommend this place because of poor customer service.

This took place in March 2020. This restaurant was recommended by a friend and I was positively surprised of the choice to have dinner here. The buffet had a lot of different choices which was perfect so you definitely didn't leave hungry. The best of all was a chocolate fountain which was delicious. The staff were friendly.

Stuff that makes you feel you did something wrong when you have not done anything. There is so much hatred and negativity in their eyes that they try to suppress. Not sure why they hire people who hate other people, but the manager who was trying to hide himself behind being a regular employee was even ruder and did not want to help us even though our request was very simple.

It seems that restaurant either doesn't have waiters anymore or they simply don't give as good service as before. No one didn't even asked for the drinks last time?! Whole place was totally over crowded at Friday dinner time. Noise was really loud, people were making a mess and lines were long. Not what I've used to get from this place.

We ate lunch. The main course selection was really good, but unfortunately the main courses were completely tasteless. The pizza was a real disappointment (hardened and tasteless) and the meat dishes tough. I didn't taste the sushi selection. Salad selection and dessert selection good. I think the main course selection could be much narrower and of better quality. Less is more. Very friendly and good service. A labyrinthine place.

We got very bad customer service ever. Staff was so rude. We just came in with my friends and they already told us to pay. We were just hanging our jackets outside to coat rack first. And afterwards they told us to leave from the table we had a reserved.
