Second time at Maxill. Good service and good food. Love the avocado salmon salad. The place could however need a bit of upgrading since it has basically looked the same for years. Not yet the rustic feel that some older restaurants in Helsinki has but not updated to be modern either. But for the good food and wine it is... More

I've eaten here at several occasions, both for business lunch and dinner. Never disappointed with the food or service.

A Nice neighbourhood restaurant. A bit expensive / midrange, but totally worth it. I have been here more times than I can count. The menu isin't big, but it doesn't need to be: the food is always great. They change the menu quite often according to season, which is nice. Service is professional. I highly recommend it, it's usually full... More

This little bistro keeps the quality of the food continually at firmly good level. Food is beautiful and fresh, service delightful and friendly. The menu is short yet easy to choose from. Easy access, leave your car at Erottaja parking hall, you won't find a spot there. Only 500m walk from Stockman's. Great value for money! Fits for families as... More

We went there to have for lunch and short appointment. The restaurant was quite busy and the waiter did not come to the table without asking. After some calls he came and the food was in the table pretty soon. Interieur needs a small uplift, the general look was a bit tired. Three different lunch dishes at the price of... More

The restaurant is quite small approx 50 seats, a small waiting bar at the entrance and a few steps down the dining area. Also some terrasse tables in summertime by the street. The food is modern and very good tasting, personnel is lovely and speak at least English, Swedish and Finnish. Quite a few wines served by glasses, not very... More

Situated a short distance from the centre of the city, this restaurant is a little off the beaten track and is unlikely to be frequented by tourists. All for the best. The atmosphere suggests a local eatery - which indeed it is - and the menu offers a good choice of simple food. Even in a local neighbourhood restaurant the... More
