Great to have lunch at this classic Helsinki restaurant with a 50's vibe. Oversized and excellent wienerschnitzel with caper, anchovy and lemon is the thing to eat here and so I did. A huge success. Also liked the coffee but especially the atmosphere.

After the renovation the basiv charm is still there. Menu is fill with good choices and the wine list making everything nice and easy. It is a bit crowded and noisy, so that takes one star away. Good location.

The food is ok, nothing really exciting, and sometimes bad. The service is personal and friendly. But for the price of the meal there is lots of better places.

My friends and I dined there on our last day in Helsinki (it was my second time there) and it was not a regret. Such fantastic meals though in modest Finnish diner atmosphere. Very local and authentic.

The restaurant is located near the main station of Helsinki, and is famous with its speciality "Zander and Shrimps with Lobster Sauce au Gratin à la Aki Kaurismäki", however, I thought the carpaccio of reindeer was unexpectedly good.
