Had the liver and some icecream for dessert. It is one of my favorite places to eat in Helsinki, that always serve no nonsense, well cooked, Scandinavian food. Their wienerschnitzel is also to die for.

HI, I just looked from website of Seahorse restaurant, and they don´t take reservations by e-mail. You have to call +358 9 628 169 if you want to make a table reservation. Enjoy your trip in Helsinki and in Seahorse! :)
