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.

The four of us had dinner and had a lovely time. Most of the staff were really friendly and attentive and we really felt welcome. The doors dont open until 5pm so dont show up too early for your booking. We didnt mind the wait at all though. For started we had the escargot and the salmon, both dishes very tasty! For mains we had the entrecote and the duck, both excellent again. Loved the French fries and bernaise sauce especially. For dessert we had the creme brulee with red currant sorbet which was fresh and a very nice end to an excellent meal. Good wine list and the decor and atmosphere of the restaurant were very nice. Will definitely come again and will try the set menu next time!

Very friendly and informative staff. Tasting menu was simply delicious, great presentation, and taste to match. Great location on the side of the park. Suggest booking although we were lucky to get to eat at the bar. Definitely recommend and would go again if in the area.

Our experience was that many restaurants in Helsinki only offer a fixed menu. The waiter was pushing for each of us to order the 3 course selection, which we did not want to do. I was getting an a la carte appetizer, and my husband the full 3-course menu, with me nibbling on his food, if I so chose. So when it came time for the dessert, they served my husband the wrong one. When they brought the corrected one, I said I'd eat the "mistake", (it was ice cream and was melting already) and they charged us for it. Should they have? I don't know, but they always, everywhere pushed the menu du jour.

Everything was really nice, friendly service and the food was good. However the food was only good and not excellent or exciting or anything special. I may be quite demanding in this sense, but meat and potatoes like this does not impress me. So even if I wanted to give a better rating, I really can’t. Maybe another menu may be more innovative, but I feel that the restaurant food should be something I am not easily able to recreate - at least when we’re talking about restaurants at this price range.

The restaurant Pompier ESPA has a very nice ambiance and decoration. Service is very good and efficient. Food is great with a finnish touch and very fresh products. The cocktails are surprising and very good Wine is soooo expensive as usual in Finland. I definitely recommend this super restaurant

We had booked this restaurant online before we arrived in Helsinki based on reading some great TA reviews. It’s very close the eastern port area and was easy to find. It had a few tables outside and approx 15 inside. All of the staff were excellent and,spoke great English. The menu isn’t long but they do offer a 4 course menu of the day as well as a few a la carte dishes. Our server described the menu of the day and it sounded perfect so we both ordered that as well as a glass of rose and a beer. The food throughout was excellent- we started with steak tartar with picked red onion, crispy onion and smoked mayo - both taste and texture were great. We then had a mushroom dish with flaky pastry and apple - such a string mushroom flavour and then had a white fish and vegetables with a beurre blanc sauce. Finally dessert was mixed berries, meringue and crème Anglaise. The menu had been well thought out and extremely well executed. A great meal and would thoroughly recommend eating here

I have enjoyed a dinner at Pompier twice during the past weeks, and have been very happy with the food. Grilled avocado ceviche with roasted tomato crème and chimichurri was a delicious started, and beef tenderloin steak with bearnaise sauce is one of my favorites as the main. Pompier provides excellent value for money, both for food and wine. And if you are a desert person, you should try their tarte tatin, it's the best one I have ever had.

We visited Pompier on a Saturday night for a dinner. We ordered menus of 3 courses. The food was tasty, but there were a bit too many components in each dish. Nothing really stood out, as there were so many things on the plate. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere at the restaurant was nice. I've heard a lot of good feedback for the lunch, so I would probably choose this restaurant for lunch rather than dinner.

Pompier has the best lunch in Helsinki at a below 15€ proce point. The portions are amazing and the service is friendly. Due to this, the restaurant is always packed during lunch, but it’s worth the wait if yout don’t mind the crowds.

Went for a quick dinner on a week day around 8.15 pm. Place was moderately busy, I was able to get a seat without prior reservation. Service was quick, attentive and professional. I got escargot for appetizer and double order of beef tartare as a main course (it is listed as appetizer that was the reason for doubling the order). Food was very good a presented nicely. They also have a nice and pretty wide selection of wines. I recommend this place. Word of caution- based on my past experience they are very busy on Friday and Saturday so advanced reservation is almost a must.

The location is top notch. The food was really good. We had their tasting menu with wine suggestions and it was really very good. The thing is, next night we went to another restaurant where the food was next level, so I couldn't really give this review more than 4/5.

I was not impressed by the food. Good but just good enough. Set of menu with quite small portion compering to a la carte (we had 4 courses but people with 2 from a la carte had good also, steaks looks really better). No choice of beer (actually 2 and no draught), few wines only. Good atmosphere but 1 star less for choice of beer, 2nd for food amount in set.

Had a fantastic lunch here. Soup, salad bar and hot main all for under €20. Plus a free coffee. Hot food was fresh trout which was excellent. Really great place and good value for the most expensive street in the city.

The ceviche and beef tartare were perfect starters. Steak main course was also perfect. The tart tatin dessert was spectacular. The best ever! A simplistic menu but all absolutely delicious. Wines were also beautiful. A really great restaurant for a romantic night out. The staff were also fantastic. Our server in particular was extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend.
