Being German (or rather Bavarian) by birth, my expectations were high when I was invited to arguably the best German Restaurant in Helsinki. However, arriving there just created a big amount of sadness and disappointment! Food is not really German despite the names. Most of...More

Went for dinner there but the waiter was so unwelcoming that we walked out. Asked for help in gluten free portions everything was possible but he was not ready to help. We walked out to a nearby restaurant and they gave service.

I don't like this kind of food - at all. Too much meat, the hole place smells like meat, everything tastes like broth We felt sick after the meal. Zinnkeller is and has been popular for ages. I guess I was just a wrong person...More

Excellent, straightforward food, not too fancy or expensive. Friendly and swift service. Furnishings and interior decoration really made us feel like in Germany, in a good way :)
