The restaurant is small and the decoration is very basic. However the service is great and the food is brilliant. The restaurant is worth a try, prices are not bad either.

Very well located restaurant, right in the centre of Helsinki. They do a pretty good lunch. But the place feels a bit like a canteen - so I wouldn't come here for a romantic dinner, for example.

Good Restaurant, avoid the meat, prefer the soups and the local dishes. They warm up the restaurant a lot, and at the same time they keep the airconditioned on... strange way to keep your carbonic print low.
