Had lunch with a friend recently in this lovely place. Managed to get a great window table overlooking the park. Service was professional and smooth. Lunch menu is fairly basic but served its purpose. Had a beef tartare to start which was satisfying. Nicely plated and tasty. I ordered the entrecote with pepper sauce as a main. It was fantastic....

Restaurant Strindberg is located on the 2nd floor, above the well known cafeteria under the same name. The restaurant interior is different, like enjoying a meal in an elegant private home. The food was excellent, especially if you pick something from the "Classics" menu where the price-quality ratio is good. Service at our table was exceptionally friendly and service oriented....

Even though there were a lot of waiters around, we got ignored for a long time, until we finally hailed somebody ourselves. We had coffee and cake, which was good, but very expensive.

We enjoyed a Sunday early afternoon light brunch in the ground floor cafe. A more complete restaurant upstairs. Good champagne by the glass options, and not overly expensive. Smorsbrod and pastry items prevail and a stylish crowd is guaranteed

We went to Strindberg twice - both times past the retro bar on the first floor. The first time was for a late lunch and what we noticed was that a good many elderly ladies were present. We took this as a good indication and the food was indeed pleasant. I recommend the herrings and the meatballs. Staff were friendly... More

My foreign guest loved the view to the Esplanade park and the interior of the restaurant. Service was very professional and friendly. I had a green salad to start with. The portion was generous and fresh and the dressing very tasty. Both my guest and I had fish, which was fresh and excellently prepared. It came with risotto that was... More

I had a very good fresh green salad as a starter followed by white grilled fish. It was awesome! The interior is very cosy. The restaurant is very popular so even during the week you should make a reservation to make sure you will get a table. I was on my own so they let me sit at the bar.... More

Nice place for a drink, tea or meal. The wide windows of the restaurant offer a great view to the Esplanade. The food is really high quality at a reasonable price. Will for sure pay another visit next time I'm in Helsinki!
