We had one night in Helsinki to meet with friends for dinner and chose the Sea Horse based on past experience. Sadly, the food wasn't as good as the first time, at least in the case of my husband's meal. I ordered the salmon and...More

Awesome food. Great service. The Vvorschmack was incredible, as was the liver and onions. The other family members had the herring and the reindeer, each of which was great.

My chicken fillets were good but my companions' dishes were disappointing. Crispy fried herrings turned out to be sixteen(16) sardine-sized fish with a woolly texture. We went on the recommendation of a local couple who were regulars so perhaps we were unlucky. service cheerful and...More

HI, I just looked from website of Seahorse restaurant, and they don´t take reservations by e-mail. You have to call +358 9 628 169 if you want to make a table reservation. Enjoy your trip in Helsinki and in Seahorse! :)
