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.

I usually never use restaurants in the hotel where I stay. I like to move, walk as much as I can and reach real restaurants; However, weather was not so nice, little raining, quite cold, and nice restaurants were not so close, so I decided...exceptionally to stay and take advantage of it. Waitress polite and nice, smiling mainly all the time. To tell the truth, I could not find a wide selection, because many plates were Italians, and..since I’m as well, I didn’t want to eat them abroad…; So I took a soup with salmon, quite nice, and a main course based on salmon again., very good; Quite ok, than, despite as usual prices in Helsinki are not cheap at all. Location and environment was modern but not too much stylish; Quite and silent, but not too formal. Place is perfectly suitable for a friends dinner, or a business lunch. Not for a romantic placeMore

Arrived late in the evening so had dinner in the hotel. Modern interior and layout with a good atmosphere. Staff friendly and efficient though busy. Food at dinner was very bland. Breakfast choices and quality very good

Had dinner one night at the Holiday Inn Open Lobby - good quality food. Although there was only one server attending to the whole restaurant, she did her very best to Ensure all guests were attended to promptly. Overall good meal and service.

Lunch buffet quite the way you would like it, enough options for starters and main course to please most. The decoration is nice and the atmosphere is good for business lunch or just lunch.

I was staying at this hotel so decided it was also the best place for a meal in the local vicinity. I was pleasantly surprised, the girl who served me was very pleasant even though only a trainee but she was doing very well indeed...and she was friendly. I had the Raindeer Capacio and the Steak, it was very nicely presented and was a very good standard. It really had a lovely taste. So this was a very nice surprise, the chef is doing them proud. Also it was clean and there was a few nice touches that you would get in a more expensive restaurant, well recommended for a meal.More

This is the hotel restaurant at Holiday Inn Ruoholahti. The hotel has been recently renewed. This biggest difference is the new Open Lobby concept which combines the lobby, the bar and the restaurant to a relaxed, living-room style space where guests can eat, relax or...work. The service was friendly when having drinks in the evening. In the morning the breakfast was excellent.More

Came in early (6 pm). Restaurant was almost empty. Yet, they left me standing near the entrance as if I was not there for a while. I was eventually seated near the window, which must have a nice view over the water, in summer time....Food was served quickly. Taste and presentation were fair to good, but it all seemed to have been prepared in advance. It also seemed that the main course was heated in the microwave, yet, tasted well.More

Restaurants in hotels are usually a letdown, but not Fokka. Staff are really attentive and friendly. Needed a quick bite and had the carbonara, which was really tasty and the serving was just perfect for me. Will definitely eat here again.

The food is not bad (except the mushroom soup which was awful), but the portions are ridiculously small and it's very expensive. The pike/perch with horseradish butter was delicious but much too small. If you don't have two or three courses you leave hungry. Worst...of all is the very hit and miss service and the fact that you can wait a long time for your food even when the restaurant is almost empty,which is usually is, and I'm not surprised. The management here may think they can get away with all this because most people staying here are on business expenses, and there are no good restaurants near by, but I'm tired of being taken advantage of and tonight I made the effort and walked ten minutes to a great little pub called Kanna where they serve better food at half the price, and I will definitely be doing that again!More

I had the reindeer entree and steak for main and was very happy with both. The bread is complimentary and also quite delicious. Serving staff are not so attentive and more focused on clearing away dishes on tables where people have left but they are...friendly and helpful when you get their attention.More

The menu has the basics for Finland. Salmon and mushroom soup, reindeer, lamb burger. One glaring gap is the lack of pure rye bread, rye happankorppu or nakkileipa. Really? Fix this.

I was staying at the Holiday Inn West and this restaurant was very convenient for a business lunch with a client. The fish of the day was excellent. Presentation and service was very good.
