This is the restaurant of the hotel Aleksanteri and it used to be Fransmanni. Now it got all new name, interior and menu. The atmosphere is very relaxed and a bit 50's rock'n'roll or jazz. I was here for a lunch and it was very quiet, but I read there's more action on the evenings. The service was friendly and... More

Not bad for food but waiter appeared a bit grumpy. Like most places in Helsinki a bit over priced. But convenient and from Haloumi salad to snails portions are generous

We just stumbled upon the restaurant because it was so close to the hotel, but the meal was excellent!

I went to this restaurant with my boyfriend's family who live in the area. I was impressed from the moment we walked in because the place is just cozy, warm and stylish looking. For us it was a very nice place to have a nice meal with the family but I could definitely see doing a business dinner here as... More

When our party entered the restaurant the waitress did not even say hello. The service in general lacked enthusiasm and smiles. It really seemed that our waitress wanted to be somewhere else rather than waiting tables in Fransmanni. What a shame. But the food was really good. We had vegetarian, chicken and meat dishes and they we're all great. Despite... More

The earlier reviews were negative on the service, but we had nothing to complain about. It was an easy Tuesday night and a single waitress managed all tables with a smile and no worries. We had eaten earlier during our holidays in this chain but the food here was a bit better. We liked the touches done to sometimes simple... More

I went to eat lunch at Fransmanni with friend and waited to be seated about 10 minutes and nobody noticed us. So we decided to go other restaurant. Can't recommend.
