I have always wanted to vitsit at bistro Bastion. So last weekend I decided to book a room from Hostel Suomenlinna and spend nice evening at hostel Bastion.
Kitchen needs the orders until 18:30 and we arrived well before. Unfortunately Nobody notice us as we...sat down in the table. I soon started to look around to locate the waiter. I found her and she told me that kitchen has closed 30 seconds ago...! We tried to explain that we game to Suomenlinna and booked a room only because to spend nice evening at their restaurant and we were present before the timeline. The Head of the restaurant game to us and told us very unfriendly they wont serve food for us. We became a bit upset as we were having our best clothes and room booked for us... they asked us to leave the restaurant. I asked them where we were able to find food from the island and they told us to buy some food from local foodstore! How can this kind of restaurant exist, restaurant personnel just wanted to leave home earlier...so sad.
After our shock we started to locate a place to eat somethind...and yes, we found a restaurant called "Susisaaren Ruokala", a fantastic place with excellent food and friendly staff.
Finally we were so lucky of not to spent a few minutes more at restaurant Bastion which is the place I can not recomment to anybody.
We had pepper steak and a couple of glasses of wine. The food was delicious! And I also really enjoyed the cava. Service was great and friendly. Only minus was cappucino, that was nor worth of money. Otherwise great place!
We sat down on the terrace on a sunny afternoon. We were a big group so the waiter opened the outdoor bar just for us. I just loved her way to greet us. The terrace is located close to the ferry. Good selection of local...beer and bubbly alternatives. Also loved the old wooden building. I strongly recommend this place!More
This restaurant is on Suomenlinna island. We had a light cocktail and lager outside as it was a beautiful day. Then we went inside and had a wonderful meal with friends. We had an appetizer of shrimp salad on toast with side condiments. For the...main course we had fish - perch - in a light cream sauce with mushrooms and fingerling potatoes and asparagus. The sauce was special. All local ingredients even the perch, which is a premier fish in Finland. Dessert was a custard with rhubarb sauce and berries. We had a little light white wine - Pinot Grigio - and coffee at the end. We had a wonderful time at this UNESCO tourist site.More
This is a casual restaurant in Suomenlinna, Helsinki. The service was friendly, if maybe a little matter-of-fact. My main course was Vorschmack, which was all right, but not memorable. The dessert - rhubarb sherbet - was particularly good, excellent even, with a clean and distinctive...rhubarb taste, and beautiful pink hue. Highly recommended! Also the blueberries and merengue with vanilla sauce was tasty.
tl;dr: place has great desserts.More
Very welcoming staff quick and efficient service. Child friendly. The food was really good well cooked and presented well and good choices. Also list of local ales to choose from. Also wines tea and coffee etc.
This is well worth visiting
