Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent Food & service. The waitress working on her own on the afternoon shift of 24 Feb was extremely friendly and all round good at her job. The view from Faro overlooking the frozen harbour water is a lovely backdrop setting for a relaxed bite...& drinks with friends & family.More

A lovely place to enjoy a drink and a bite to eat on the Ruoholahti waterfront. The outdoor seating is secluded and comfortable and service is very friendly.

The location next to Ruoholahti Canal (Ruoholahden kanava) and the pedestrian zone is very beautiful. They have a large summer terrace, too. Service (December 9th, 2022) was extremely kind but perhaps a bit slow. Their bistro menu is very good. Everything tasted very delicious.

Whilst staying in Helsinki visiting family we had a takeaway delivered. We all had fish and chips. The food was nice and had a lot of fish included. We especially liked the homemade tartare sauce that came with it.

A very nice location next to the Ruoholahti channel. You sit right by the water for drinks or food. The food however was not anything special, but quite average. Pricing was on the high side though.

Very beautiful panorama on the channel and tasty sea food. The mussels are a must in this restaurant, top three in Helsinki. The Skagen bread could be upgrade with a ticker bread but it was tasteful. Musta pastaa was also very good. Good service and...nice atmosphere in the restaurant and also a very good quality/price ratio.More

Took a short walk from the holiday and found this restaurant, which is nicely located at a smal channel. Menu was quite limited in the main course selections but I found what I wanted, a Salmon and it was fresh and nicely prepared. Fast service...and the waiter recommended a nice wine with the fish as well. Potty it was cold and dark but would be lovely to come again when you could eat outside at the terass.More

Nice weather proved to be an issue: me and my guest had a table next to sea front, and the wall is basically one large window. With the nice sunshine it got first warm, then too hot. The waitress reported the curtains are as low...as possible - which meant we did not have the view but still got the sunshine on our bodies, which were shortly getting sweaty. First the jackets came off, then we rolled up our sleeves and finally between courses we changed seats to be bit further out from the window. The business menu was three courses. My guest made a mistake and realised he will not eat the seafood based appetizer only when it was served. Upon asking for a choice to fix the issue the waitress suggested my guest to pick up soup from lunch buffet although then agreed to deliver it to our table. The courses themselves were quite nice although could be better, perhaps more focus on quality and less volume. Mixed feelings.More

The neighbourhood is dead at evenings, but don't let it scare you; when first inside the restaurant, the view is beautiful and their menu offers quite a selection of well prepared and nicely tasting dishes, from vegetarian to meat and fish. The wine list may...need a fresh-up since it was hardly any bio- or eco-wines there, but that did not stop us from having something else in our glasses. The service was warm and smily, and we were lucky enough to experience a live band with everything from the 80-hits to dark, Finnish tango on their repertoire.. nice....!More

The best part of Faro is its location right on the channel. During our bar visit, service was amicable, and beverage selection decent (while modest).
