This is slightly off the track from the center and that is a good thing: in a charming location they serve excellent Finland-based food that delivers without going tourist. Proper service, eye-pleasing dishes and good flavors

We just had the Menu in the fabulous Graniittilinna restaurant. Long time since I`ve been there last time, and had complitely forgotten how beautiful this restaurant is! Food, especially the Blinis, we just fantastic, cooked into perfection. Great service, better than anywhere I can now remember. So, highly recommended!!!

Restaurant Graniittilinna is located behind the Hakaniemi market place in an old "Granite castle" as the name implies. The menu prices hint towards a gourmet-ish restaurant, but sadly this is not the case.
Our group had lunch in the restaurant before christmas. The starter of tar-marinated salmon was good, but consisted mainly of soy beans with just the tiniest bit of salmon. The main meals were good, but the output of the vegetarian dish wasn't very attractive. The dessert was a disaster - a christmassy tiramisu which had nothing to do with the real McCoy, the pieces of cake were unevenly cut messy lumps on our plates and didn't even taste nice. Service was brisk and professional, not very warm or friendly.
For the price of a set lunch menu I'd advise you to go to one of the better restaurants in the centre of town, you get much better value for money there.

We arrived at Graniittilinna after 7pm on Wednesday. It was pretty empty. It took more than 10mins to get water, another 5-7mins to get wine... Service was slow. Luckily, food was good.

This is a beautiful restaurant as part of a very old castle in central Helsinki near the Hilton Hotel. The heritage lamb I had was perfectly cooked and was accompanied by a lamb sausage, carrots and a stuffed cabbage leaf. Great sauce, too. My wife's roasted chicken was excellent also. Service was a bit spotty as the restaurant was not crowded. I highly recommend. Costs for us without wine were about 75 euros.
