Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were traveling to Helsinki, went to lunch. In general, the dinner is delicious and the price-quality ratio is good, but restaurant is very crowded at lunch time. The place is very popular with young people, so if you want to spend time in silence and tranquility, it is not for you.

Tastes great, nothing special anyways, but it has a really nice and easy going ambience. Before going out or in the middle of party mood is great. Hangover friendly too :)

We went here after reading the reviews. The place was busy but we luckily found a table. Good vibe in there. I bought a lager for 5.90 which for helsinki isn't bad and had the satay steak with noodles was amazing. My friend had the chicken noodles and actually said it was the best pasta he's ever eaten!

We had a nice midday meal. Feels a bit like a diner in the US but the music and food are better. Portions were large but not too big. Staff were busy but friendly.

Very good and affordable food. Noodles were around €10. Alcohol is expensive, but that is everywhere in Scandinavia. The interior is simple but serves the purpose. The ambiance was very good. It has The looks more of a bar, then a restaurant. I was there very early. Proplably it can be pretty crowdy at normal dinner times.

Being in Helsinki all on my own, I tried to find a place to at, where I would feel not alone, Bar #9 caught my attention with its friendly atmosphere and crowds inside. People were sitting, chatting and eating food from big plates and definitely with an appetite. Large portion of pasta pomodoro (I managed to finish only half of... More

Helsinki is expensive for dinner but this place is a gem. I came twice, just because the food is super delicious. I got carbonara pasta and a lemon yogurt spaghetti. The local beer is also very good. Fast and friendly service. Very relaxed atmosphere.

We visited this place as a couple. Staff would not attend us and insulted us when trying to order. We entered with high expectations and left disappointed. Unacceptable behaviour in any situation, even more so when you pay an establishment.

You can have a breakfast with bacon, eggs, toast, ham, cheese, juice and coffee for 15 euros. Delicious. Haven't had such a good breakfast in a long time. Other things on the menu as well if you prefer lunch. Decor is not luxury but it is a nice place to have great food at a reasonable price. Walking distance from... More
