Ordering food extremely difficult, waiters didn't have any English skills and not even able to get the order in correctly even pointing out the dishes from the menu. One hour wait time, wrong dishes not served simultaneously. Again wait for correct dishes... after finally having the right dished on the table they were prepared from frozen raw material and tasted... More

I used to go to this restaurant years ago and the food and service was much better. This time I had the feeling that most of the food offed was soaking in mayonnaise. I also had the impression that most of the food was either frozen and/or reheated. The service was very bad and most of the time they weren't... More

It was a nice surprise, with a small river going by, making it a nice atmosphere. The food has great quality and service but quite pricy.I would be back there, for sure.

We had the Helga plate for two and everything was up to our high expectations. Fresh and cooked to perfection. It was not especially cheap, but worth the money. I'm sure they will see us soon again!

Great food, icing cold vodka, excellent atmosphere! My husband and I had sausages while the kids were able to have kids specials. I would say it would be best for couples, but our kids ate well and had a great time. Service was excellent. We will certainly be back if we have the opportunity.

Imagine an art gallery with traditional finnish food in the middle of Rio de Janeiro State. Incredible food, Finnish vodka, and the best: Martii the owner, who will chat with you and if he likes you he invites you to a vodka. Unforgetable! Thank you Martii!
