Cafe Birgitta used to be one of my favorite terraces on the cost of Helsinki but no more... while I do understand the strain caused by korona restrictions on cafes, bars and restaurants, I do not understand how a piece of salmon with a few...leafs of salad would be wort of 19€. Sorry, but no, no matter how nice the terrace view is...More

Nice place with good terrace and views. Good selection of food: burgers, sandwiches, pies and cakes. The food is very good but waiting time is too long when it is rush hour

It happened to be a hot summer day when we stopped here for a drink. Bob Marley was playing and their terrace had a perfect summer vibe goinc on. Yes in summer!

The perfect spot for a delish lunch. The view is amazing. The cost affordable, the choices many from traditional Finnish to hamburgers, with affordable prices.

Meat in the meet burger was good and tasty, but that’s about it. The whole burger meal (bun, fries, etc.) was lame and terribly salty. Vegetarian burger meal was even more disappointing since the vegetarian beef did not have any taste and the bun and...extras was the same lame as in the meat version. The place us nice, probably good for a cup of coffee or beer, but would not recommend eating here.More

We had classic burgers with water. Service is ok. My burger was very good but her was perhaps too well done. I understood the burger was supposed to come with fries but was surprised to see the potato wedges. Didn’t complain though, but next time...will ensure I get the fries!More

The resaturant is relatively new, located very nicely with very open view to the sea, on the way to eg. Löyly. It has a big nice terace, very big windows, special wooden burnt walls outside and a nice smell of smoke as they have a...smoker in the kitchen. Two of us took birgitta burger with potatoes, that was very good. One of us took smoked shrimps with potatoes which was also good. The pastries looked excellent but this time we did not try. They have a very wide sortiment of alchoholic drinks, but also eg teas and organ juices.More

Nice cafe with an ocean view, delicious sandwiches, desserts and a full bar. Unfortunately weather didn’t permit outdoor seating but we truly enjoyed the small indoor cafe with floor to ceiling windows and blankets to keep us warm. Atmosphere was warm and cozy. Would definitely...visit again.More

This was my 2nd time in Restaurant Birgitta Hernesaari. The restaurant is situated right by the sea. So there is full sea view from their terrace. Our food was extremely delicious, too. They have a real charcoal grill, which gives very good flavor. Unfortunately the...restaurant was very congested and there was a long queue in front of the service counter. In spite of that service was very kind and surprisingly fast.More

Nice day for a lunch by the sea side - why not, but don't eat here. Food's expensive, poor quality and rude service on top. If you come - enjoy the view and have a drink!
