I have never had such tasty, crispy-peeled sweet potatoes than here as the side dish for their equally delishious salmon! Quite a pricy place but if you have some spare money to spend, it won't be wasted. Also my greetings to the friendly stuff.

Reading some of the reviews I'm a little bit puzzled by what I'm reading. We had nothing but a great experience in this place and would recommend it. We did go on a week night so that might of made some difference as it wasn't too busy. The staff were very friendly and our food arrived in a decent time.... More

We were a group of 20 people. We had selected the foods in advance. The drinks had fancy names, hefty prices, but really lame display and taste. Apetizers came reasonable fast. My mozzarella salad was quite small and the mozzarella was probably Rainbow-branded cheese kind of product. The main course too almost an hour. My chicken saltimbocca was ok, nothing... More

The location is very convenient in the center of Helsinki, close to Stockman department store. I had pizza that was quite good, but especially the bottom lacked taste. The service was friendly, but disoriented every now and then.

It was weekday, but restaurant was still quite full and I wondered why. After the menu I was not wondering anymore. The food quality is excellent and for average customer this pricey but friendly place is very good place to eat. I ate American menu and it was excellent. Antipasti was quite good, although roasted tomatoes were not that perfect.... More

Pizza was good, service ok. This is quite a crowded and noisy place - and had to wait for the food quite long.

Very crowded place, excellent location, good food and very honest management: my food did not arrive, so after 30 minutes, I complained and as a compensation, I was offered the wine (and anyone having been in Finland knows how expensive if can be) and the starter.
