Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dinner was delicious and service professional. Drinks and food matched together. Location nice also in winter time, can’t wait summer outlook. Easy to reach by walk and car.

Had an absolute marvelous time; food was awesome, the entrecôte was made to perfection and the salmon starter I had was also delicious. On top of all, the service was impeccable…well the only drawback would be the rain…although sitting under cover on the terrace was...actually very cozy :-) Would absolutely recommend this establishment to any and all.More

What a lovely place! The building is amazing, all the sunlight in that you can get in the sunniest place in Finland. Service was warm and professional even tho the staff was very busy on an extremely busy lunch time. The lunch menu was divine,...the thought of the fresh bread waters my mouth even now thinking about it. Your visit to Vaasa is missing a great experience if you skip Hejm.More

Always great food and excellent service. The view and interior is absolutely stunning 🥰 Had the 4-course menu which is great if you want to try different things.

So, the positive first: very nice view by the waterfront. Nice ambience, interesting meny with classic and local dishes. I think the waiters do their best. Negative: you wait and wait and wait and they ignore you. I was sitting outside , I order, then...get wine. When the wine is finished, it takes a long time for them to serve the starter, I order another glass, the starter comes and the wine comes when the starter is done. Get the picture? It happens with main course as well. The starter was very good. Main course entrecote was soaked in garlic butter and sauce so you could hardly taste the meat. Then after main course I ask for an espresso and digestif. Takes ages, when it comes digestif is warm and coffee cold. Have to ask for another espresso. Would not recommend this place.More

I was on a trip to Vasa and decided to have lunch at Hejm. Very good lunch indeed. This is a buffet restaurant, but they serve the meals to the tables. Nice staff, fine atmosphere.

I would say this restaurant is hip style over substance. Vaasa has made an attempt at a modern, 21st century eatery here with mixed results. The setting on the water is stunning and the decor is spot-on. The service is sweet and down-to-earth. The food?...It’s OK. The portions were quite small and tasty but somehow did not make me yearn to return. Not sure why. Something did not quite work. I did like the bread though.More

Definitely top three restaurant in town. Menu changes by the season but always spot on. Good and carefully chosen wine list.

Just spent a week in France visiting on Michelin star- restaurants - HJEM was even better than those! Recommended Herrings as starter.

Don’t miss a unique menu! The fried herring (strömming), the perth (abborre) and älgörtsglass (Filipendula ulmaria) was an outstanding dinner for us. Nowhere else, only at this place. We’ll be back!!!

Very positive find in Vaasa. I did not expect to get top quality food when visiting a relatively small city. I was wrong! Service was first class, and food was excellent. This place is a must when you are in Vaasa. Remember to book table...in advance!More

Hejm does not have a Michelin star (yet), but it is worth the effort of waiting for a reservation and travelling from further away. The food, service and view are memorable. Our four-course meal with wine pairing was full of pleasant taste surprises. Our dietary...requests were met with a smile and the service overall was professional and smooth. You should eat here!More

Interesting, locally inspired menu. All the details were sadly not in place, The delicate pike roe was served with pickles onion, which in my opinion was way too strong. The reindeer was very delicious, but for reason the texture of the carrot didn’t match the...rest of the ingredients on the plate. Anyhow, I enjoyed the food and place is very cosy.More
