Ravintola Koskenranta surprised with the quality of gluten free street food! The roll of the burger seemed to be even better than the "normal" ones. Also the hot dog type of sub had a great structure. Patties and sausages inside were excellent! Only thing which was missing from the gluten free set is salad. So basically they were served without... More

Name Koskenranta means "by the rapids". This is the place where city of Helsinki (then just a village) was first established. Restaurant has a big outside terrace by the rapids: it is a delight to watch on a warm, sunny day. We visited to eat the house burgers: during lunch time also salad buffet and coffee are included. Burger and... More

Lunch is nothing special. Check the menu before you go, otherwise it's more creative to have just scrambled eggs in your place. However, there are some days that they offer interesting menus, for instance sauté reindeer or delicious salmon soup. Talking about space, it is great. I've been there with groups up to 17 people and still the place was... More

Visited for lunch with my mom. The food was quite good and the atmosphere is nice outdoors by the rapid, but the service was subpar. The kitchen made a mistake with my mom's order (left the chicken out of a chicken cesar salad) and upon me walking in to return it (because the outdoor staff was not even reacting to... More

The location by the rapids is the only plus. The buffet brunch was overpriced (21 e) considering that the hot dishes were chicken in two forms without any side dishes. The price of a Leffe beer 9 e ! The staff was OK.

Great place. Good service. Nice food. Great view. Nothing out of ordinary but on the other hand nothing to complain about either.

We stopped here for coffee and a snack on our way from the Museum of Technology. The service was excellent, friendly and helpful, and the food ranged from good to average. We had ordinary coffee (which was good) - as they do not have a proper coffee machine for espressos. We had two types of sandwich/bread-roll: the other was delicious,... More

Refreshing atmosphere with both nature and urbanism. Housing around is new but this is where Helsinki was founded some 500 years ago. Old industrial set-up rules all over and makes good place also for business. Above all the running water, fly fishers and close by nature trails makes it an oasis

Stopped by for lunch here with a couple colleagues. We chose the buffet lunch, but they also serve by plates. The buffet offered soup, sallads and a warm dish (salmon this time) and desert with coffee for under 10€. With a view to Vantaa river and rapids, it was a nice experience. There's a terrace to enjoy the sun in,... More
