4 pals for dinner. Two of us took perch, salty and over fried, additionally it was very dry tasteless. Same with the vendace. The 4th pal was happy, he took the fish buffet table. Service friendly.

We 8 family members popped in this restaurant upon recommendation of the counter staff at Indigo Hotel. The buffet archipelagos was very worthy of money with a great variety of choices in Scandinavian fishes. The seafood platter was delicious. The lamb and beef were made...up to our satisfaction. The dessert oven ice cream was highly recommended too.More

Although only a few guests this night the talkative waiter did not pay attention to our needs. Great food and the wine recommendation was excellent. Lunch would be a better choise also price wise.

Relaxed atmosphere and good food is what you get at this place. The servings were ample and we variety was good. The only reason for 4 and not 5 stars was the service. I think they were short staffed on the evening when we dined....It took a long time to get our food and our waiter seemed to be running all the time.More

This is a seafood restaurant on the waterfront in Helsinki. I was excited to try it. The owner was extremely friendly and welcoming. The waiter was excellent. The decor good. The wine good as was the Finnish beer. We had a seafood platter. It was...lovely but the lobster was overcooked as were the prawns. I expected more from a chef in this restaurant in Finland. More than anything it made me conscious of how lucky we are in Australia where the seafood is better than I have had anywhere else in the world. I was sure Finland would surpass it. It was not in the same class. So in this sense I was disappointed, but the dessert was sublime. If this is the Finland standard for seafood then this place is highly recommendedMore

Went for some dinner with friends. Waiters were friendly. Food arrived slowly and was ok. As a main course I ordered a steak very rare. Once it arrived it was a medium and I asked to cook it again very rare as I had asked....The waiter took the steak back and then the cook, a young man, arrived, to with a very arrogant manner ask ”what was wrong with it”. I told him that as a rare stake it was over cooked to my taste and quite hardy. He told me in a very hostile manner that it was cooked just right and that I, the customer was wrong, then he took the plate and said I’d have to pay for both stakes once I wanted a new one made rare. I was amazed by his rudeness, hostility and arrogance. I went back in from the terrace and asked for our check for the amount of appetizers and wine we had had and told them to forget the steak as I was stunned by the behavior of the chef. I have been around the globe and eaten in various places and never ever encountered such behavior. And I know what a rare steak is... not cooked with a timer but by heart!! Most likely will not go back!More

Came here while on a business trip alone, staying in the Radisson Seaside. Literally a 3 minute walk to this restaurant. Lovely decor. Friendly staff and the seafood was absolutely delicious. Non fish things on the menu too. The special main course was perch and...it was fantastic. Would definitely recommend here if you like you seafood. There was also a great looking buffet of mixed seafood and salads.More

After having perfect perch and potatoes I decide I want to eat more fish. So when I come home I’ll take up fishing again.
