Cosy bistro type restaurant at Suomenlinna harbour with a seaside terrace.
We had two pasta dishes (chorizo & artichoke) and they were delicious and plentiful.
Definitely a recommendation. No table bookings during summer season.
We came here as a group of three adults and two children for supper. It had the most beautiful views and surroundings. Food was delicious too but sitting outside can get quite cold in the evening so wrap up warm! Would hugely recommend. Wonderfully peaceful.
Very nice environment, a cafe by the waterside. Pretty easy to locate too. Once you cross the bridge in front of Suomenlinna Museum, turn right and walk 150m.
We ordered smoked salmon soup (€9.90) and we can refill the soup and the bread by ourselves....We found a lot of potatoes, carrots and onions in the soup but not much salmon meat.
We also ordered seafood pasta (€15.50). The taste was fine but it wasn’t what we had expected. However, the cafe offered free coffee with the food and that was really nice.
We saw some other customers’ salad and were impressed by its big size. We would try salad next time we visit.More
A very nice cafe with casual atmosphere and self service. We shared two warm dishes and were a bit unsure what it actually was we were served. One dish was with pulled oat and the other said meat on the menu, but was actually fish....Anyway the dishes were very flavorful and I liked it a lot.More
Valimo means a foundry. This historical restaurant building has been a foundry of projectiles. It was built in the 1870s and it has a grass roof.
I could say that this restaurant is a hidden gem. It is situated in the guest harbor of the...must-see Suomenlinna Island Fortress. However, this small harbor and restaurant don't belong to the conventional walking route of tourists, because it is an offshoot trail and the area looks like a storage area.
The menu may be different every day. They use ethical ingredients of the season. They serve both salad, soup, pasta, meat and fish but the selection is very limited. Orders are made from the bar.
They have a small indoor restaurant and a large summer terrace next to the guest harbor. Watch out seagulls outdoors. Seagulls don't disturb you if you are eating but they can eat your meal if you leave it unattended.
We loved both our meals, the atmosphere and the scenery.More

We came across this place whilst strolling around the island. The food was delicious, the best I had during a week in Helsinki. The salmon salad was wonderful and enough for two people to share. All the portions were generous, tasty food and lovely, friendly...service.More
Stumbled on this place while checking out the drydock. They have a lovely terrace on the little harbour and we couldn't resist a rest and a drink. Very friendly service and comfy seats next to the water with delightful little birds fluttering about unintrusively. Our...30 minute rest turned in to 2 hours it was so lovely in the sun, watching boats come and go and ducks in the water. It was a perfect supplement to charging around the island taking in the sights.More
