Went for an evening meal with no reservation (off season, so took a chance). Every bite of all 3 courses was wonderful, lovely dishes that were well flavoured and well portioned. Attentive but not intrusive staff. The Taste of Finland starter was brilliant!

We stopped in and were able to get food and a seat in minutes. For items picked off a cafeteria-like line, the quality was excellent. The decor and ambiance are quite nice. Right beside the "My Helsinki" sign in the central park.

We visited on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was quite quiet. We hadn't realised that there is also a cafe and a bar inside. The menu was interesting and the waitress was happy to answer questions and make recommendations. Food and drink was pricey but in line with other restaurant menus we looked at in Helsinki. The food was... More

I was initially attracted to Kappeli by the beautiful conservatory structure it is housed in. I had a venison meatball open sandwich. Portion was quite generous, as well as delicious. Service was excellent and friendly. I do think the prices are too high, but still highly recommend you try it at least once.

The restaurant is right in the next to the market square. It's so lovely from the outside and inside. The dishes don't look big but they are very satisfying. We really enjoyed our meal. Very recommended
