Although in the centre of the city, about 150 meters from the train station the hard rock is a little more discrete than most and it is easy to miss the sign. The bar again is a little different and more in-keeping with Finland's general...More

As far as memorabilia goes this is ok, considering this is one of the smaller HRC outlets. There is just something about restaurant service in Helsinki, it sort of - does not really exist. The restaurant was half full and seemed to take a good...More

Just like any other Hard Rock, this one offers the same atmosphere and hospitality. The menu is a bit different but in a good way. They offer a couple of different options that look pretty good. Everything was very clean and looks to be newly...More
