A wonderful city with great old buildings. This is one of the nicer locations by the harbour in a very old and intact part of Helsinki. A set menu of fish, meat and creme brulee with very well matched wines in a nice, spacious orangery style dining area.

Best Points - Great location near the harbour (note - no harbour view to speak of though), good views to the tree-lined Esplanade through the enormous glass windows, very clean, nice food, very "Finnish"...

Ended up here at the recommendation of my hotel, as the hotel restaurant was closed on Sunday. Atmosphere was lovely, and the food was amazing. Staff were very helpful and we weren't rushed at all. Highly recommended.

We were nine in a family occasion in Kappeli restaurant in the middle of down town Helsinki, even in the middle of Esplanad park. The place was busy with couples, families like us and over all young and old. Food was nice, litle salty though, and really beautifully set. The bulding looks very original from the 19th Century, 1867, with... More
