Went for lunch and a good one too. Ordered the metsa sandwich and the bratwurst as mains. Lunch also included a delicious tomato soup with 3 types of bread. Also included a nice salad buffet, which had olives, a tasty ham noodle salad, green salad...and some others. Coffee and dessert too! Good value for the money indeed! Ambiance was nice. Service was efficient and pleasant. Menu not in English so please do bear this in mind. Google translate helps! Definitely would recommend this gem.More

Visited the Zinnkeller restaurant today with a very large family group. The restaurant was booked well in advance and we took eight tables. We all ordered our food by tables and then waited. And waited, and waited and waited. My table was one of the...first served which took at least 45 minutes, but we had finished our food before other tables were even served. Later on dessert was offered and our table was forgotten completely so by that time we basically gave up and decided to get dessert somewhere else. As far as I could see only two members of staff was serving such a large group, a third appeared later but seemed only helping to clear the tables. Knowing that such a large group was expected, I would have thought they would have had more members of staff to serve us. As to the food, had Wiener schnitzel and roast potatoes which was ok, others had pork fillet, so no complaints about the food, but of course I can't comment on the dessert.More

This is a gem, if You are dying for a perfectly prepared original Bavarian home food. This is the closest to that You can find in Helsinki. Food really good with reasonable pricing and good service.

We ordered hunters' bread, fried roasted hare and fasaanirintafile. They are all tasty that you can enjoy German dishes other than scadic in Helsinki:) Size of the portions is good enough to make us all full. Their disserts are also very tasty! Their English menu...has included only 3-4 pages with black and white A4 paper which is far less choices than the menu in Finnish. For this reason, I have to rate it 3 instead of 4 or 5...More

It is located at the northeast area of Helsinki, north of the cathedral. They serve casual European food. I ate mushroom soup and boiled herring with carrot and potato for lunch.

We had walked a distance and were really hungry when we came to this place. The lunch is served till 14:00 and it was 13:45, so a chance to eat was tiny, but the lady was nice and served us our meal! It was not...outstanding but it was good and in time.More

Had a nice evening in a birthday party of a friend of mine. We had a whole pig to share with 6 people. Pig had to be ordered two days before the visit. Pig was accompanied with all kind of sides like gabbage, mashed potatoes...etc. The sauce was also very good. Price of the pig was a little high but I can understand that because there is a lot to eat. Would recommend this place for a nice German dinner for every kind of parties.More

Good if youre into the 1983 decor and good beer, wine, herb liqouers and pretzels. Being a vegetarian there was nothing to eat except vegetable rösti which tasted like school cafeteria food but greasier and saltier. The omnivores said food was "edible". So food wise...a big no BUT it is Bavarian cuisine so barf inducing whole milk piglets on the menu are expected and do cater to those in the know, ofcourse.More
