Restaurant is an easy walk from the train station area, but it is on a small side street so not one a person is likely to find by chance. It is quiet with simple decor, just a few tables but not crowded. Menu changes with...More

We had the blinis for starters and cod fish ( fresh fish for today) for main course. The food was absolutely great. Don´t remember when I had such fresh and delicious cod. Cozy and relaxed ambience. This was a perfect dinner experience.

The restaurant is small and the decoration is very basic. However the service is great and the food is brilliant. The restaurant is worth a try, prices are not bad either.

Very well located restaurant, right in the centre of Helsinki. They do a pretty good lunch. But the place feels a bit like a canteen - so I wouldn't come here for a romantic dinner, for example.

Food was really good. One of the best dinners I have eaten. Restaurant is small and cozy. Don't have anything bad to say about this place.

It was a good restaurant, but I was expecting even more. The atmosphere and the service was quite good. Prices are normal for Helsinki but certainly not cheap. Me and my girlfriend paid near 100 EUR for full dinner. Tastes and quality were good ,...More
