I’ll just write a small review from this bar part of the restaurant, because we just liked to have ’one for the road’ after a good meal in another restaurant. The bar is quite a normal comfortable bar with a few tables and of course the bar. We arrived about 10PM and ordered an espresso and calvados. The bartender girl... More

This restaurant, come pub, come club is in the middle of Helsinki. Staff are really friendly and the food quality is brilliant. Wine was fine and there was a good selection. The prices are more reasonable here although you cannot get away from the fact that Finland is expensive compared to London or Brussels. It does look like a London... More

You have a choice of the buffet or aka carte menu. We had Caesar salad with chicken, and Caesar salad with crayfish ....with a side of fries...all done and presented well and reasonably priced.

We had good fun at this place. Konig is in the middle of the city and good place for adults. Service was nice. I could recommend this to all.

Very good situated in a center of Helsinki, but nothing special. Quite good atmosphere of an old European restaurant and nothing else. Probably it is good for quick lunch or dinner but cannot be recommended by the good evening dinner with your family or friends. The cuisine is not worth its money, but a loach was good Very friendly service... More

Went here with a group of 7 people during the restaurant week at 17:30 without a reservation. Even though the restaurant was fully occupied and the restaurant seemed pretty busy the head waiter went out of the way to create some space for us and allowed us to take a table that was reserved for 7 o'clock. Since the burgers... More

The rest of the food was good to. It was mushroom soop by the way. The service was excellent, the... More

Used to be privatly owned before. Today it belongs to a big co-op chain with many restaurants in Helsinki and all over the country. Usually it doesn't get better with a big owner. König is o.k. for a quick lunch but not for fine dining in the evening. The ambience is there, but the food and service is mediocre. Also... More

Called in here for lunch off our cruise and enjoyed a tasty, inexpensive lunch with a good selection of rehydration to choose from. Staff were friendly and up for a chat about the Konig's history. A very pleasant event.

The service and atmosphere seemed to be good when we arrived. Had the Toast Skagen for starter that was nice as well. But when we got to the main course it was a big disappointment. The salmon pasta I had was terrible. It was tagliatelle in a strange watery sauce with a salmon filet on top. My wifes chicken dish... More
