Good quality food, not fine dining but good basic level. Especially the starters were delicious - salads and pizza as well. The salmon pasta was not in the same level, but anyway ok. The kids/teens enjoyed. Nice service, quiet and cozy atmosphere.

Went to listen some live jazz and hade some drinks, too. A typical bar for a hotel ... but enjoyed music.

Expecting local food I found the main food you get in Finland is Italian!!!. Good choices though and well prepared and plated up.

I was in this restaurant dinner with my wife. The restaurant was an ordinary Finnish restaurant slightly worn out. The staff were friendly and professional. The food was really good and tasty. I ate Linguine pasta with asparagus, leek, lemon-olive oil and Pecorino and wife`s...food was Papa`s Burger Homemade 200 g steak, pickled cucumber, onion, tomato and Cheddar-cheese, coleslaw with sweet potato fries. I will recommend this restaurant.More

Nice taste, fast enough service. Proper risotto is a tough cookie surprisingly often but Papa Albert nailed it. Have had turned away on many occasion for being full.

No no no... I had dinner with my partner in December 2016. We planned to have nice three course dinner and enjoy the evening. Well, we didn't enjoy that much. Mostly the problem was tastless. My first course was carpaccio, which was awful. Main course...was shrimp pasta - terrible too. I tasted my partner's steak and it was super salty. Dessert was okay, but you can not ruin ice-cream that badly... Atmoshpere was nice, service was good, live jazz music very lovely. If you visit in here, maybe you should just order pizza. I heard they are quite good.More

This was a great breakfast buffet in an atmospheric hotel restaurant that you hardly notice from the outside due to the curtains. Simply lovely and was open earlier than most other breakfast buffets. Recommended for early risers or those suffering from jetlag. Walk in and...help yourself. Very nice!More

We had very good service and felt welcome. Atmosphere nice, too. You can relax having a glass of wine and looking from the window to Albertinkatu. I recommend Papa's Burger ( that you can get glutein free as well ) with Australian red wine.
