The restaurant itself is very nice and cosy.Located inside the fortress walls. Unfortunately the food was not worth the price,very overpriced ,the wines also. Some of the staff very rude and unprofessional. Save your money to another restaurant!!

We were walking around the island when it started to rain. Luckily this restaurant was nearby so we popped in. It's got an amazing interior, the service is polite (as I found everywhere I went in Helsinki) but it was very expensive for pizza - 2 soft drinks and 1 pizza came to the equivalent of £30. The pizza was... More

A hidden gem on Suomenlinna fortress island, located close to the Kings Gate ferry. Magnificent interior, beautiful classical music and 6-star cuisine. Service was slow and sterile, but the overall experience, ambiance and meal was absolutely superb. Highly recommended!

I had a three-course meal with my colleagues. Our avocado-based starter had an extremely dull presentation, basically green goo served in a large cup. No herbs for display, just green goo. The taste was OK, although a bit too much on the bitter side. My main dish was a bean risotto. The risotto was very dry, I didn't finish it.... More

For the price you should think you get same taste as fine dining place in town but food was dissapointing. Venue looks great and in the warm day it was cool place. Service was very odd, you think that the waites werw drunk, because the other one smelled like alcohol. They seem not know what they are doing, classes were... More

I checked the restaurant website early enough to have a nice early dinner before our evening in the Suomenlinna Ryhmäteatteri Theater. Under a heavy rainstorm we walked through the whole island to the end towards the restaurant. Luckily I know where it is, as there are no signs whatsoever to guide you.

Our family did our annual Suomenlinna (Island fortress) visit in July. And as usual, we ended up having lunch at Walhalla. The place is very popular and even with typical Finnish summer weather, understaffed. During summer months it is self service orders from the counter, small selection of pzzas available and some ingredients had finished at 1600 hrs. For three... More

Really nice place and potential for good restaurant. Had a pizza and fish&chips which had 5-star hotel price but taste was far behind.

The views outside the restaurant are unbelievable and make you realize how special Helsinki is. The grounds around the fortress are scenic and make for nice pre-dinner adventure. The restaurant ambiance was special, comfortable and our large dinner party had wonderful service. Menu is brief but offered something for everyone.

Thank Constance R
