Loiste restaurant interior is one of the most beautiful ones in Helsinki. The interior is complemented with a magnificent view over the city. Menu is a mix of traditional dishes and moder twist, and bistro -style comes to my mind. I had fish, and it...More

Perfect location opposite of the brand new Amos Rex Art Museum. Roof top views. Tasty food but service was somewhat slow.

We had a little extra time in the afternoon and wanted to discuss in peace. Loiste was quite empty in the afternoon so we had our peaceful moment and were able to discuss without extra ears listening. I ordered fish plate from starter list and...More

Everything was top notch during our dinner: great views, friendly service, and delicious pepper steaks. One of the best meals this year.

Fried chicken with lentil stew, dark thyme sauce and spinach was perfect. For some reason they don’t serve starters and desserts at the terrace. The view from 10th floor is awesome!

We had some first courses for a light lunch with friends. We also loved the champagne offer, a bottle for a reasonable price. Great view, be sure to have window table if possible!

Kaupungin keskipisteessä sijaitseva Ravintola Loiste henkii aitoa 50-luvun tunnelmaa ja tarjoilee aamiaisten, lounaiden ja illallisten lisäksi huikeita näköaloja Helsinkiin. Niin huikeita, että pöytäseura saattaa jäädä kisassa toiseksi. Tunnelmallisessa ravintolassamme herkutellaan iltaisin suomalaisen keittiön herkuista ja Vaakunan klassikkoresepteistä. Lounasaikaan tarjoilemme raikkaan salaattipöydän sekä viikoittain vaihtuvia lounasannoksia. Runsaalle Original-aamiaisellemme ovat kaupunkilaisetkin enemmän kuin tervetulleita, näköalaravintolan korkeuksissa aamukahvi saa arvoisensa puitteet.
