A local institution, and indeed a nice place. Had a light lunch, which was good. A tasty quiche and a fine coffee. Service was fine, and the prices are OK in Helsinki's term - which mean that in any non-Nordic capital you'll pay 30% less for a similar meal.

Although the location and setting of the restaurant upstairs are nice, the service was slow (three hours for a Saturday lunch is long by Finnish standards), and the food and wine were meh. We were a group of four and no-one was particularly impressed although we all ate different starters, mains, and desserts. For my part, the toast Skagen was... More

We visited Strindberg for lunch. Food was good. Prices were very reasonable for Helsinki. Good tea / desert menu options. Service was very good, too

Cappuchino for 5 €... Good tadte and good price :)Red house wine 8 € Looks pretty. For millioners and russians ! But for me it's usual place. Not great, not bad.

We had a very enjoyable, last meat here. We had salmon, which was excellent and meatballs which was tasty - great cold weather food. The surroundings are lovely, lots of old books, quaint corners, with good service. We would return

I always try to have at least once lunch at Strindberg's restaurant when visiting Helsinki. I really like their classics like meatballs with mashed potatoes and salmon with a poached egg. When making the reservation remember to ask for a table by the window. The view of the Esplanade Park is quite nice.

Cafe Strindberg didn't make a good decision by moving from the excellent corner lot to a smaller location next door. Usually I don't visit it anymore, but I wanted to have coffee in peace and quiet and read a magazine in their back room named Mari cafe. I wonder though about the concept of this place, which is decorated in... More

Nice dinner, good food. A bit slow service. You pay also for the atmosphere. You can find equally good food for a more affordable price other where in Helsinki, but the athmosphere is worth paying for as well

We were fortunate and got a window table despite the almost full restaurant. Service was nice and attentive. Had an excellent main course and a chocolate mousse to die for. A good wine list, although the red was served a bit too cold. All in all a great dining experience at a fairly modest price.

Thank BLA60
