On the main Esplanade street however not at street level but basement. As a starter the seafood platter small size to share with 2 people is a must. Main course fishes all very fresh, lobster cooked to perfection..vegetables that come with it too much..service was slow and understaffed that evening.

One of the best meals we had in Scandinavia. The fish is very fresh and well prepared, and there were interesting delicious specials. It's beautiful inside, and the wait staff was very helpful. It was tricky to find, though--it's downstairs, not at street level. Definitely worth a visit.

We visited the Fish Market along with my girlfriends family during a visit to Helsinki.

We decided to visit the restaurant after reading reviews on here and also the fact I don't eat meat (will obviously eat fish).

The restaurant itself is very nicely presented and is situated in a very convenient central location in the city.

The food was of a very high standard, which we all enjoyed. Sam and her sister had the €99 seafood platter, which was huge!

We would highly recommend the fish market to anyone visiting Helsinki.

An average fine dining experience we have had! We came here to celebrate my birthday dinner without reservation, the waitress who seated us seemed unhappy with her job, she was cold/cranky....

We were then served by a Dutch waiter, he was genuinely nice, accommodative. he gave us a lot of travelling tips around Helsinki and Tallinn. bummer that we did not get his name!

Nice restaurant, food was ok, price is good for what they offer, good wine collections too.

great location though not for those seeking a summer terrace-worship the feeling sun experience that occurs in summer in the northern cities. this restaurant is located in a basement level off the esplanade - centrally located. Beautiful airy, light decor to offset the basement location. I had the three course prix fixe and the entire restaurant to myself for the better part of my lunch- excellent food, friendly prompt service, albeit they were not busy. Was disappointed when I went back on a sunday for lunch to find they were closed, was looking forward to trying the roe dishes.
