We had dinner here twice in four days. First time because of the close distance from our hotel, the second because of the very good experiece we had. Simple food but super genuine. The staff is very friendly, the place is clean, the ratio quality/price...absolutely correct. I’d certainly suggest this restaurant to anyone visiting Helsinki…as long as you’re looking for nice simple food.More

We had grilled steak and grilled salmon, both accompanied with vegetable and potatoes. The meat and fish were to the point and the vegatable freshly cooked. Food and beer were really nice. We'd love to come back.

Service was good and polite,and the dishes we had were excellent. The athmosphere In the restaurant is classic and not too fancy. No wonder itse been going on sinne 1939 !

The oldest waitress lady is often very rude to customers. Last time we visited she was working alone, very busy and notably annoyed. Whenever someone made an order she acted like it was a major inconvenience. She started to shout abusively at a member of...our party who was only trying to help her, as she complained all the time that she was working alone etc. This wasn't the first time she was rude to us. We had planned to stay for the whole night but obviously didn't feel welcome at all, so after dinner we decided to continue the evening elsewhere. For the whole time it felt like we were just a major nuisance to the restaurant. None of us was behaving badly, we weren't drunk or anything like that. Just tried to order foor and drinks but apparently that was too much for the waitress. Other than this person the service in Kannas is overall good. Food is only mediocre.More

Visited this place the very first time. We had a wide selection of different dishes. Overall, I would say that service was kind, athmosphere was...artistic...some Finnish celebrities were seen... But food was mediocre. Beef was not cooked properly, my dish "Kannas stew" (this might describe...the best...a selection of different meat) was quite tasteless...but potatoes were excellent. Mixed feelings but I think there are other restaurants in Helsinki I will visit next time.More

I have always had exellent and tasty food in Kannas. The portions are quite big, there is rarely room for dessert. The staff is always friendly.

I was lucky to find a place for dinner in the area. In this difficult time of pandemic... Kannas is nice pub opened till 23:00 and kitchen was working till 22:00. Serving tasty food and, as far as I understood, very popular among locals. Would...like to suggest do not order a big portion of Salmon Soup if you wish to try a main dish. I made a mistake. The soup was so big and nice... place for second course was not remained. However, Grilled Liver was perfectly cooked and place was found. Further, have to mention that in this pub you will be surprised by a reasonable prices for food and drinks.More

My wife picked this restaurant for my birthday. Well she doesn't have good track record for picking us a place to eat but this time i was pleasantly surprised. Pepper steak I took was excellent and so darn tasty. Cosy pub type of atmosphere and...not crowded but we are now living different times than before. Service was top notch. I can easily recommend it to everyone. Will go there again. I'm sure of it.More

The food is the best in town. Portions are satisfying and the place is romantic and cosy. It is usually quite crowded, so I suggest to book in advance.

I have been visiting this restaurant for several times during the last five years. The food and service have been generally very good and satisfactory, yet there has been some fluctuations. Yesterday (Tuesday 14.7.2020) we booked our table for three at 8 pm. The restaurant...was less than half full and there were two waiters. One waiter brought us drinks and some bread, which is usually a sign of some delay in the kitchen. It took a bit more than hour to get the food on the table and the family with a little child next to us needed to wait more than us. This time the food wasn´t nicely served nor had sophisticated flavours in it. My chicken was dry and there was barely no sauce at all. It was definitely not worth the money. We all got disappointed. Although I have had some fluctuations with this restaurant before, this was certainly the lowest point.More

Booking always guarantees a table. But should be good without.
