I could imagine that the Ravintola Merimakasiini is not too exciting for locals because it i so Finnish. But me as a tourist, longing for what Helsinki's nature has to offer, I was completely over the moon. The fish plate with different kinds of cured...More

We had a lovely evening celebrating a birthday in June. The a la carte list hasn't much changed over the years, but then again why should it if the dishes are excellent! Especially sea food is something you should go for. Nice and efficient service...More

Walked in without a reservation. The nice waitress told me to choose a table. Had a lovely starter of mixed seafood (fresh, pickled, etc) and then a mixed "boiler" plate which consisted of shrimp, crayfish and langoustines. Both plates were the summum of freshness. This...More

Food was good and staff friendly. We had grilled shrimps. Those were excellent. A portion for one person was enough for two.This place can be recommended.

Another recommendation from our Airbnb host. There are several fish places in this area, I’m glad we took this suggestion; seafood ‘casserole’ is a beautiful light soup FULL of an array of seafood and a fabulous broth. The grilled fish was crispy on the outside...More

We came to this restaurant for dinner after reading all the positive reviews. Although the restaurant was almost empty, they wouldn't accommodate us because there was no reservation (we were only two persons). We respected their decision, although we found it weird, especially that the...More
