Yes, this bar is Finnish which means that you shouldn't expect anything great to drink, but the food is quite nice and affordable. Some salads and pizzas, nit just regular 'pommes fries' and hamburgers. And just next to the metro station, which makes it a convenient location to meet.

I have enjoyed Meritähti's food every time we have visited. Not "classy or fancy" but good food and genuine friendly service, I am happy with that concept.

I went there for quick dinner. Its next to Ruholahti metro station. Place is small, cosy. Prices are ok, meals are good and staff are polite. If you are in the neighborhood I recommend it.

5 years ago I used to eat lunch at this place more than once a week. Looked like a "räkälä", but had really good and big steaks.
