Good variety of cocktails (very expensive but that seems to be a Finnish thing) the food quality is good and has always been consistent. The service has always been good regardless of how busy it has been as well! We have swapped the ingredients of dishes before and it has never been an issue with the chefs. The atmosphere is lovely, you'd never expect it to be part of such a big shopping centre.

some nice dishes, and a decent wine list. sadly the staff forgot an order, but they were so friendly and the food was good enough to let it go. still to salty which is normal it seems with every dish l have tasted in the area, but the quality was there, having a bar inside the restaurant also helped progressing this dinner further...

I've had dinner here at least ten times during the recent years, latest visit was in June -16. I've usually - if not always - had a pasta dish and I think that it has always been quite good. Desserts have been fine also, but nothing exceptional. Staff is friendly and everything has worked smoothly all in all. Number of restaurants - other than fast food - is limited in this mall, that's the main reason for coming back to Base so many times.

- If I remember correctly, quite some time ago, Base used to have horse meat on their menu. Luckily that's note the case any more (at least wasn't in June). Didn't have it back then, wouldn't have it now...

- Some shabby elements in the decor, eg stained lamp shades (getting almost used to those by now... :-).

I have no complaints really but considering my other recent reviews can only justify 3/5.

I have had dinner at this restaurant several times and it has never failed me. The food is good, the staff is friendly and professional. Surprisingly the environment is nice and cozy even if it is situated in a shopping mall.

Went here on a group dinner. Perhaps it was the (bad) advice of the waiter but we tried the steak (beef), which was advertised as a "Well marbalized, tender cut". When one colleague asked for it on the rare side, waiter went on to say it needed to be rendered longer because of the fat content ... etc.

What came was a piece of relatively dried shoe leather. No excuses ... if you're going to use the adjective "Well Marbalized" it should be tender. It was not.

We came as an international group ... again waiter wasn't very patient with those whose first language was not English.

Other than that ... desserts were so so ... and the coffee they served afterwards was less than inspiring.
