This restaurant is a hidden suburban gem near Herttoniemi metro station. Don't let the shabby surroundings fool you as their kitchen is excellent. I have never visited the place in the evening or tried their famous burgers but I enjoy my business lunch at Treffi Bistro every now and then.

It is worth taking a short ride by metro from the city center to have your lunch, especially if you are planning to visit Marimekko Factory Outlet which is located only 10 minutes walk away from here.

This suburban pub/restaurant is known for its big hamburger meal. It is tasty, big and a recommendable choice. The one and only experience of the lunch buffet was a bit disappointing. Not even near to the hamburger experience. But the lunch differs daily and rumors say that the lunch is good in average.

To be on the safe side take the very good hamburger and one of the nice gourmet beers that they serve as well. Hamburger is worth of 4 stars.

House full, difficult to find table for groups more yhan two. Still worth it, this is a cosy grill with charcole smoke and burning grease in the air. Raw to medium delicacies made of high quality meat.

Had a sunday brunch and sadly it wasn't worth of all the hype. Buffet table was really really messy, and all the time something was finished.

Starters were ok, nothing special. Different salads with thick dressings. Was expecting something a bit more fresh. Not so many options on the main course of desserts.

No juices were served during the brunch, only Coffee/ tea or water. Nobody asked during or after the meal if we liked it. If you want just okay food, and not looking for anything special, this is the place for you.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with the food and the service. During the busy brunch we try to chat and get feedback form the customers courteously if the situation so permits. In a future we try to put more effort to the customer service and delicious food. Welcome again and please let us know on the spot if there is any problem with the food or service. Unfortunately there's not much we can do over the internet.

We went to the 'Best of Treffipub' brunch and have to say that if this is the best what they have to offer, it is pretty sad. The quality of food was poor, the dessert table was a bad joke and there was no juice. People need juice with their brunch (especially when they pay 25 euros for the brunch)! Service for rather bad and can't really compliment the atmosphere either...
