Bryggeri is a microbrew restaurant well located between the iconic Helsinki Cathedral and the Esplanadi/Harbor market area. We first discovered this place 5 years ago and put it on our list of must visit places for our annual treks to Finland. Shut down during Covid,...there have been some amazing renovations in the entire eating and drinking spaces. If you compare this recent photo with those from years ago, you will see massive improvements with the clean, fresh look. But of course, you will come here for the beer and food - which will not disappoint. The bar menu still has a great hamburger, and the full ala cart menu downstairs has some tasty international favorites. About the only bad reviews I have seen on this place involve people who come right near closing time - which should be avoided because the Finns have strict laws and fines for staying beyond the mandatory closing time. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive and spoke great English. Don’t miss this place if you like beer and are looking for a warm, comfortable setting with great food and service.More

A lively beer hall, self service on an openair courtyard just between Senate Square and the harbour. Good value, great atmosphere. Jumping on a Friday 'TGIF' night, friendly happy crowd.

Always surprised how many nice places in Finland been spoiled with such an arrogant and bad service. Not to wonder why tips are not common here. It is for good service...Staff busy with their mobiles with prepating to close instead of taking care of guests,...cleaning here and there but forgetting for instance napkins for a client... a lot of small things which could make a visit unforgettable. Closing gates with bolts to prevent new clients come in but also not helping guests going out even when asking help. Just f..k you as an answer... huhh!More

We enjoyed our first visit here. I had the tasting menu with the wine package which was excellent. Husband had a borscht with a very interesting (in a good way) beetroot, quince and sea salt beer. Inspired. His sausage selection for main had a very...good IPA to accompany. If we were here longer we would return. Waiter knew his beers and wines. Big venue so I imagine it would be very busy at peak period. On a Thursday in February it was quiet except for some boisterous Americans. We certainly enjoyed the experience.More

We went to this brewery just based on a quick thought. The experience was a positive one: The selected fish main course was very good and when paired with their own beer, it was even better! Also the blinis served were very good! The atmosphere...in this place is a relaxed one and the food is great!More

Well, thursday eve 22:00+, I guess no reason to expect a huge crowd, but downstairs, which is perhaps more cozy than the small upstairs, was basicly empty, except 2 shabby groups zippin their most probably 1-2 hours ago acquired beers. I had the most expensive...pint of tap beer of my (fairly long) life this eve, 11,20 eur, which buys you easily a decent lunch anyday anywhere in Helsinki. This is a record. I’d love to say this ”pub” on a idyllic old short street was nice, but I can’t. This was the 2nd time been here, and can’t recommend it. There simply are more lively and pleasent places to spend time than this. This has nothing to do with personnel, service was polite and nice, nothing to complain there. But sitting basicly alone in the basement with no music nor interesting clienteel. drinking very expansive beer, don’t know maybe ”artisan beer for enthusiasts”, well, why bother. It is a bit pitty....we’d like these quarters to be vibrant and the location should give all means to be that. Did not eat. Dont know of that, if it exists. Hopefully tasty.More

Great friendly staff. Sit outside in the courtyard garden, upstairs or my favorite...the downstair bar/dark dining area near the brewery vats. Great beers, fantastic soup and worth trying the lunchtime buffet or a la carte. Lift available for downstairs access as well as stairs.

Nice atmosphere. Great location. Not cheap in the restaurant, but also cheaper than many places nearby, and the food is very good. Beer selection wonderful.

Food and beer place in downtown area. Eaten there two times in last year. Unfortunately second time food was disapointment, we ordered bryggeri vati. Beer is anyway exellent. If you choose to go there i suggest to choose tasting from they own brewery. Last weekend...there was some so-called ”sing” training from the local church. So it was impossible to speak there because of high noiceMore

Excellent bar, micro brewery and diner. Stopped for a beer and had a could of sampler platters of beers, all the beers they brew on site. Excellent in-house beers and a good selection of craft beers in bottles. 10 euro for 5 0.1litre samples, so...good value.More
